What's new

We visited Mada One (see 14 Mar 2019 newsletter) twice last week. It looks good, with a modern, acoustically well-designed interior and large windows overlooking the terrace. Outside, the seating area is spacious and promises to be an excellent spot for people watching in summer.

Our first visit was for 'apero-therapie' on Thursday evening, arriving 30 minutes before scheduled closing time (8pm) for a glass of wine. One glass wasn't enough, so after our friendly waiter assured us we wouldn't be rushed, we ordered a bottle of the excellent Pomerol and an aperitif-sized platter of meats and cheeses.

Since Casa del Caffe was still closed (due to open 23 Mar) we popped back on Saturday for an 'express' breakfast. The coffee was acceptable, the Danish pastry was refined and 'bijou'.

Overall, it felt like the place had opened early, perhaps to iron out any problems before the tourists arrive for Easter. Top marks for the Pomerol tho'.

Another new place, Il Morso (formerly Cote Vapeur), opened officially last Friday. We've yet to try the panini and pasta bar, so if you get there first, let us know what you think.

As for closures, we have it on good authority that Rose des Vents will be temporarily closed for the 2019 season. Apparently this is due to the land extension construction work off Larvotto Beach.

And finally, those in the know are advising us to leave the car in the garage on Sunday, when Chinese President Xi Jinping will be in town.
