    Ike's Bistro at Manchebo has a great Thanksgiving menu and it's outdoor seating (lovely setting). It's posted on their website. Enjoy your last few days and thanks for taking the time to fill us in on your adventures!!

    Cafe 080 was great! I had the Chicken Schnitzel, my son had Flammkuchen and my husband had fish and chips. Everything was super tasty. Curry Ketchup! I am German so that stuff runs in my blood haha. I make it myself (mix Ketchup with Curry powder) back "home" in CA.
    Tonight we will try Blanco Faro. Menu looks great. Still not sure where to go on Thanksgiving. Not that we need a traditional spread but maybe something special since it's our last night.
    Went to Arashi beach today and parked a bit further up to get away from the crowd. Snagged a hut and were able to park right next to it. I think tomorrow we will do Eagle Beach again and spend the whole day. There is a guy renting umbrellas (we have beach chairs) for $25, right behind that little park/playground. We've been there last week and there were no crowds at all.
    Any other restaurant recommendations? TIA.

    Thank you for the recommendations. We decided to do Madame Janette tonight and Barefoot tomorrow. Hope those will be as excellent as they sound! Yesterday and today were action packed. We did the rock formations and re-enacted a photo from 20 (21) years ago. Also went back to Arashi Beach and later had dinner at Faro Blanco. Killer lasagna there. Very traditional Italian rather than American Italian. Smaller portion but was plenty much for me. Great service and ambience too.
    Today we went to the National Park, something we have not done in the past. The caves were amazing and we were treated to a natural fish pedicure, down at the stream from the first, smaller cave. Super funny and ticklish.
    The island is def getting more busy since yesterday. I assume a lot of Thanksgiving travelers from closer states. Eagle Beach (and Arashi yesterday) was more busy and the umbrella guy told us they are expecting more people tomorrow. I am glad we came the week before, it felt almost as we had most parts to ourselves.
    Looking forward to dinner tonight, I read something about a ginormous Schnitzel which sounds way good.

    The schnitzel at MJ’s is great. It’s a huge portion, the size of a dinner plate! I hope you’ll post your photos of the re-enactment.
