Many thanks in advance.



Recommendation – Silks 

6 of us went to ‘Silks’ for Sunday lunch today (28th Feb).  The food was some of the best we’ve had in quite a long time. A choice of 3 meats, roast potatoes, Yorkshire puds, plenty of fresh and tasty veggies. The service was excellent and the price very competitive.

Go along and give it a try.  You’ll find them along Torrox Costa prom – with the sea at your back, take the left hand turn next to the Chinese clothing shop



Recommendation – Passport Photos


I can recommend the photo shop Calahonda in Torre del Mar, on the main coast road next to the Supersol supermarket, at the Caleta end of Torre.

I took the printed specifications for the photos that came with my passport renewal form, but they already had their own copy…..

hope this helps.      Wendy


I renewed mine last year and had the photos done at  FotoSistema , Camino de Málaga 44, Vélez.  I told them it was for a British passport and asked them to trim the photos to the required measurements so it would fit into the little box on the application form.  The size of the finished photos was the only difference.     Linda


My husband and I have just had our passports returned after renewing them.

We had our photos taken at the shop next to the Police station and although

the background was white and I had a smile on my face they were accepted.

Hope this helps Keith.



Recommendation – For Tapas Fans –

Recommendation for Bar ‘La Cabana del Canario’ at Penoncillo (Torrox Costa)

Very good tapas now available at Bar ‘La Cabana del Canaria at Penoncillo (opposite the Beach Bar ‘El Barco’).

They are now offering a choice of 60 different Tapas of which several are Canarian in origin.

All are priced at 1€ each – hot tapas are cooked to order (so you may wait a while) and many come with a few Chips.

Don’t miss the Papas Arrugadas con Moja (Canarian ‘Wrinkly’ Potatoes in a spicy sauce) – you get 3 plus bread for 1€. VERY tasty and excellent value.  Brenda

What’s on Jazz, Blues, Original Songs    

caos de dana

The Soul in the Voice” is the title of the new project of Dana and Gianni

The voice and guitar blend into a refined dialogue, which is the result of a deep search and work between the two musicians.

A lot of space is also left to improvisation and the public is involved in a stimulating atmosphere.

A world tour in music, international and original songs in five languages, interpreted with personality, creating a unique style that is a fusion of jazz and blues.

A very interesting voice, accompanied by a rhythm and swinging guitar, for an evening of great atmosphere, unforgettable!
