With a menu revolving around the pumpkin theme the halloween dinner was somewhat disappointing. The food was uninspiring except for the soup, with salted cod fish lasagna and a custard cream for dessert.
Too little to be remembered!
The service is nice and the premisses are very comfortable and cozy, with a bar to start your night and a large second floor saloon with a nice fireplace.
Some say that the friday's menu is what counts, but I have never tried it.
As far as I can say not worth the visit.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- COLARESThe origins of Colares date back to immemorial times, even before the Foundation of Portugal. Some old chronicals refer a few legends, one of them being probably the true source of the village’s name: a german Countess used her own jewellery (Colares means necklaces)to buy this land, as she could not afford to pay for it with gold.THE INNThroughout the centuries, Colares became famous due to its vast plantations of fruit trees and mainly to the vineyards growing among pinetrees. In the early years of 1900, Domingos José Camarão selected this ancient village to open his small tavern, which nine decades later would become the Colares Inn. Today, we are proud in preserving its gourmet tradition along with a good service. With a cosy and confortable atmosphere, the Inn has a total of 13 rooms. One restaurant, a bar, a large sitting room, pleasant garden and private car parking are additional facilities. ... more less
