Fine dining and fairways: Luxury Portugal golf resort debuts Drop & Scoff villa service

Beautiful view of the Four Seasons Fairways golf course in Portugal

We’ve all become used to ordering food for a fine dining experience at home during lockdown, but now a premium golf resort in Portugal has embraced the same concept.

The Four Seasons Fairways in Quinta do Lago has introduced a new food delivery concept that allows guests to order from the main restaurant for delivery straight to their villa.

They’ve dubbed it Drop & Scoff. It’s room service, villa style.

Guests can order food and drink from the resort’s VIVO Bistro & Cocktail Lounge straight to their villa. Breakfast, lunch, dinner – dine in or head out onto your private terrace or garden.

Start the day with some traditional pastel de nata, French toast and perhaps a Feta, Cheese & Rocket or Wild Berry Breakfast Bowl.

Lunch options include Gazpacho, Piri-Piri Prawns, or Thai Roast Beef and Tuna salads. Alternatively opt for a Club Fairways sandwich, chicken and vegetable quesadillas. 

Dinner choices comprise Oysters, Smoked Salmon Millefeuille or local Ria Formosa Clams, Octopus ‘a Lagareiro’, Crispy Monk Fish Thai Green Curry, Lamb Wellington, Slow-Cooked Pork Tenderloin, Mushroom Risotto, Avocado with Grilled Tiger Prawns Salad and a variety of pasta, home-made pizza and burgers.

If you’d prefer to cook at your leisure on your very own outdoor BBQ, the resort also offers DIY BBQ Packs with a choice of meat or fish to cook at your villa – Sirloin & Ribeye steaks, Lamb Chops, Sea Bass and Salmon. Spend over 40Euros and they’ll throw in a complimentary bottle of house wine!

All of which sounds deliciously tempting. We’re just left wondering when anyone will ever have time to make it out onto the fairway…
