... one seafood and one meat, thinking that we would sort out whatever else we needed after we finished them off.... But when they showed up we couldn't believe what we were being fed! Squid, cuttlefish, octopus, prawns, fish, smoked salmon, ham, proscuitto, salami and more! We did the best we could to finish it and were well and truly full by the time we were done! We couldn't even fit dessert in, so we headed back to get a good nights rest before another day of ...
