The tearoom at the Palacete Chafariz D'El Rei exudes exceptional charm decorated as it is with original period furniture, which is an architectural signature evident throughout the hotel. Non-residents can join guests for brunch in the salon or at a table in the beautiful art nouveau mirror lounge, noted for its outstanding Venetian mirrors and rare lamplights. Brunch is adapted from the breakfast menu, a healthy, hearty choice of bread, croissant, assorted jams, cheese and cold cuts accompanied by crisp and juicy bacon and light, fluffy scrambled egg. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate and freshly squeezed fruit juice is also served. The menu lists additional delights such as yoghurt, fruit salad and pancakes. The setting is certainly romantic and ideal for couples or small, intimate gatherings. On warm sunny days the verandah is the perfect to place to enjoy a gin and tonic well into the afternoon.
- Romantic Things to Do: "You have to book in advance for the Sunday brunch. Before taking your seat make sure to see the rest of the building. If they are not too busy, reception staff are happy to take you on a quick guided tour."
- Best for Romantic Things to Do Because: Discreet and still fairly under the tourist radar, the hotel and its facilities make for a charming and delightful discovery.
