    The best meal I had was the weekend at Gleneagles Hotel in Scotland. It was a seven course dinner at Andrew Fairlie 's restaurant. We had course from smoke lobster to fillet of lamb. Delicious.

    Fuerta Ventura. Had a Sombrero which was a which’s hat made of metal with a fire inside and gouges all over the side. You had a large bowl of pieces of steak which you slapped onto the side of the hat where they caught on the sharp edges of the gouged out parts. They cooked away until you decided how well done you wanted them, you could have a break in the middle but everything stayed hot as long as you wanted them to. It was accompanied by a terrific salad and lovely bread and Sangria. Indeed a special meal to remember.

    Travelling on Hurtigruten where the meals reflect the part of Norway that you are passing and this meal finished with Molte (or cloudberries in English) such a wonderful flavour, quite unlike anything else. the whole meal was delicious but this taste was unforgettable

    My best ever meal - and this will sound strange - was eating a pizza in India. Having eaten nothing but curry for 2 weeks, we were so pleased to be able to eat something different!

    Fegato Veneziano (liver) at a little restaurant in Castello, Venice. I dream about it!

    In Lima, Peru. The restaurant was called La Picanteria de Surquillo. The most delicious fish ever. Still I dream some nights about this meal.

    In Portugal dealing with my uncle's estate which had lots of problems to sort.The drive back to out hotel in Lisbon was dreadful - we were behind lorries piled with cork higher than cabin dodging the large slabs flying off. We took the first side 'road' we could and after a winding journey we were at the beach. The restaurant - we were the only customers - cooked and served us this incredible fish dish with the most wonderful bottle of chilled white wine. We sat and ate and stayed till the sun went down.

    We were supposed to be going to Scotland for a big Xmas bash at a posh hotel. Got snowed off halfway up and had to return home to a Xmas dinner of Spam, chips and beans.

    Sitting on the end of a pier with my best friend Sue. Excellent food and service. The sea lapped below us, the town lights started to glimmer, and the sunset....... We watched in wander as the sky turned scarlet. Nothing can beat that meal, that setting, that moment in time.

    Also sardines, with freshly baked bread, olive oil and a simple salad. Sitting on a terrace overlooking the medina. Lovely.

    Simple but fantastic meal of fried fresh sardines (lots of them!), bread and olive oil. Helped down by a glass or two of vino tinto. Sitting by the water overlooking this beautiful bay at an unpretentious welcoming cafe, sun warming us.

    We go to the same restaurant in Roscoff every year. The fresh fish dishes are always a favourite and the service excellent.

    Best ever meal on holiday was in Bergen, down by the harbour.
    King Crab, freshly caught and cooked.
    If I close my eyes, I can still remember the taste ;-))

    A piping individual hot fish pie, which we saw prepared earlier in the afternoon, it had about 7 different types of fish, mashed creamed potatoes and beautiful flavoured cheese decorated with prawns and mussels in the shape of a fish. I recall it was after we had called at a Scandinavian port on I think a saga ship. and it was delicious.

    Le Surcouf in Brittany famous for its seafood platter. Almost smelling of the sea & such furn to share & slowly prize open the succulent claws & small shells. Followed by a Vodks sorbet to cleanse the palate.

    Several years ago my husband and I spent a holiday in Malcesine on Lake Garda. On the 15th August, which is Ferragosta, a holiday and day of celebration to the Italian people, the proprietor of the hotel in which we were staying, told all his guests that he would be preparing a special evening dinner for us all. He told us that he would be making us dishes that his nonna used to make him when he was a boy. We were all seated at the same time, and were served a four course meal of traditional Italian dishes, including a delicious risotto and a trio of puddings. It was so very different from the usual tourist fare, that I have always remembered it, both as a delicious meal and a lovely occasion.

    We had an amazing Viking meal in a Viking Longhouse in Lofotr, Norway on a cruise to chase the Aurora.
