Thanks for that Will. By the way - the old butchers from Vivos have now opened up their own shop. It's in San Bartolome I think. If you want the address let me know and I'll dig out the advert from the Gazette. We've not been up there yet, so can't compare the quality or prices.
Also... if you're doing your Vivos/HD run... and heading to Ropers too... then go one street back behind Ropers and head up the to the mini roundabout that would take you to Strawberry Fields. On that roundabout is a newish place that might be worth a visit. haven't been - so can't say if it's any good. looks the part though.
We did give the new fish place at Playa Blanca harbour a try (cheers for the tip Flash). The fish looked amazing - but we were horrified by the prices. We're loving "gallo" right now - it's a real meaty fish, and we prefer it to merluza - but it was 4 times more expensive than the frozen stuff in Spar. I'm all for quality - but we felt that was too much. It was around 16 a kilo. Nice, but not THAT nice!
PS: Cheers CG.
