This evening I dined at Michelangelo's restaurant, about ten minutes' walk from my base.

The Belmont nose-bag was duly attached for a jolly good prawn cocktail; followed by Norwegian chicken, a sort of chicken breast stuffed with salmon in a mustard sauce and  duchesse potatoes.

My plate was very hot (!). Fear not, dear readers, the Belmont hands are akin to asbestos.

This was rinsed down with a glass of local plonk, viz. Rioja wine.

I think Michelangelo is underrated. I've been darkening their door for a few decades; service remains good; and overall standards are most acceptable.

The clientele is generally respectable and international. They're tardiness in bringing the bill, though, is exemplary.

Is that the Michelangelo in Playa del la Americas, beside Colon II Apartments? If so, our annual residence to the last 5 years and later this year?

Ha ha! The very place, Gavin.

Lovely Indian restaurant opposite Michelangelo (between a supermarket and a carpark). Recommended and hopefully is still there!

Is it called the Indian Palace?
