We saw Jose's daughter a few weeks ago, and she said her Dad is now working at a restaurant in Almancil. She plays in the Punter Bar on Wednesday nights if you want to ask her where exactly he now is. Hope this helps.

There is a cocktail bar in the centre of the square, if it's a chilly evening they supply wraps to keep you warm. A great finish to the night after the O'Colonial.
