Description
Decorated in restful shades of peach and designed to embody the style and comfort of country living, the Casa Velha dining room reflects the classical elegance associated with the hotel. Handsome mahogany tables set across a floor of smooth wood enhance the room's rustic appeal. Lighter, wicker tables placed outside on the terrace offer more spontaneous, al fresco impression. French windows curtained in lace and crowned with a floral trim afford fine views back across the gardens. Polished silverware and Villeroy & Boch tableware in petite fleur motif exemplify the attention to detail. Sprays of fresh flowers add colour and fragrance. In the morning the mood is cheerful, relaxed and homely. Friendly waiting staff in uniforms of crisp white shirts, holly green tunics and black slacks serve tea or coffee, promptly and without fuss. An impressive Continental buffet breakfast spread tempts with an array of freshly baked pastries, assorted jams and spreads, cold cuts, and fresh fruit and juice. An English-style cooked selection provides a heartier option. And guests can also order from a unique menu of eggs cooked to order and served in various ways including fried, poached and scrambled. A more civilised way to start the day is difficult to imagine! As evening falls the lights are lowered and a more formal atmosphere pervades the room. This is where to enjoy a romantic, candlelit dinner in intimate surroundings, where discretion and courtesy go hand in hand. A choice menu of the finest gourmet cuisine is matched by an enviable selection of Portuguese and international wines. Eating here is an essential part of the guest experience and complements any stay at Madeira Island.
