Breakfast is important at Casa Fortunato and reflects the house ethos of natural wellness. Chef Sónia Jordão follows a Japanese macrobiotic philosophy which encompasses a gentle approach to holistic nutrition as well as incorporating Eastern beliefs and attitudes that look at the effect that the environment, exercise, and outlook have on the balance of our lives.
Guests can expect plates filled with a riot of colours with plates of fruit, vegetables, soy products, whole grains and occasionally fish. The Chef whips up aesthetically and palate pleasing plates (including breakfast pancakes with house-made chocolate spread) in the bustling open kitchen and there is an opportunity to delve deeper into this way of life by participating in the complimentary yoga classes and cookery classes that are offered at the Casa daily.
Breakfast is served daily with lunch and dinner available on request – ideal if meeting with local friends, feeling more like a private dinner party.
Fix yourself a drink from the honesty bar including snacking items and fruits - or grab one of the speciality coffees (including barley) and teas, not forgetting the matcha latte, to the natural juices and smoothies, the drink panoply rivals only the list of options to crack.
