Default O`Lume

OK here it is. Unfortunately because the weather was not good we could not sit in the courtyard. When we arrived at 9.40pm Jaime was talking to some clients who turned out to be Shelf.Life and his wife, there was also a Dutch couple there who we have known for a few years but had not seen for a while so after lots of hugs and catching up we finally sat down to order.

We had the usual bread/butter and an amuse bouche of mini choritzo and peppers on bread, then shared a starter of Ensalada O Lume which was tomato, fresh green asparagus and clams in a sweet spirit sauce.
For mains Colin had cutlets of suckling lamb and i had fillet of pork in mustard sauce, both were served with tumbet and saute potatoes, the mustard sauce was absolutely delicious and Colin kept dipping his lamb into it, Jaime offered to bring more but there was plenty for both of us. This was washed down with a lovely bottle of Albarino (thank you Shelf.life that was really kind of you), no room for desserts but a huge Hierbas on the house.

There are no changes in the restaurant itself but Toni the new chef from Asturias cooks to the highest standard that we love and expect, there are few changes on the menu and Jaime explained that he is taking it ( in his words) "back to it's roots".

So in one word FANTASTIC, welcome back the resurrected O Lume .

P.S. photos to follow, i am having a bit of trouble with the new Flickr .

So glad you enjoyed it Sparky. Wonderful news an old PP favourite is now up and running, such a lift from all the doom and gloom about these days, with the Brisas and Los Faroles refurbished, and Cappacino, things are starting to look up again for the port.

Hi 'Sparks' - very pleased that yourself and Colin enjoyed your anniversary meal and in fact the whole evening. Will be in P.P. very, very soon so hoping to get booked in to see Jaime sometime next week. I'm sure O'Lume will be just as good as previous. Haven't yet decided where to go for our anniversary meal whilst we are in P.P. Lots to choose from.

Yet another wonderful meal at Olume - full reviews to follow once we get back home but for now let me just assure everyone that Jaime, his restaurant and the fried milk are as wonderful as ever.

Sparky, That comment opens the door to more " Double entendre " than you can shake a stick at.

Re the pictures.... Its 10am and I could eat that right now (drooling as I type )

Please don't anyone think I am starting a rumour here but... does anyone have any idea why it is no longer possible to access any of the Trip Advisor reviews for O Lume? I am assuming it is just a glitch on the Trip Advisor website - in which case, someone should let Jaime know, as if it goes on for much longer he will be losing customers.

You are absolutely right Katie! How very strange! I have tried a few different searches to find a mention of it, and can only find O Lume mentioned within lists of other restaurants. It can't be because it closed down for a short while, as other closed restaurants are still there. As you say, it must be a glitch ~ surely!?

Kate/Belladona, as we know Jaime does keep an eye on the reviews and I'm sure he appreciates the info. I'll be there Sunday evening, will make sure he knows about it, think a lot of his business comes from Tripadvisor.

I have just spoken to Jaime, he is aware of the problem and has sent a message to TA. He said he will let me know when he hears back from them .
