Special menus every Friday in April
Spring is here so it's time for Calvia to show off its gastronomic prowess with its biannual gastro show. The 'Mostra Cuines Calvia' takes place in what the tourism industry calls the 'shoulder months' each side of the main season in an effort to increase tourism by putting on slap up meals at very reasonable prices. This is the tenth show and takes place every Friday in April, and the same happens again on Fridays in October.
This spring 55 restaurants are taking part, and as usual, are divided into 4 geographical zones with one zone doing the honours each Friday. So, the three course menus and a drink are on offer for €12, €14, and €16 and will be available at lunch, dinner or both. You can download a PDF which has all the restaurants, times, location, menus and prices by clicking here.
The zones for each week are as follows, and you'll recognise the names of the resorts in them so easily;
7th April – Zone 1 - Palmanova, Magaluf, and Son Ferrer -15 restaurants
14th April – Zone 2 - Santa Ponsa, Costa de la Calma, and Son Bugadelles - 21 restaurants
21st April – Zone 3 - El Toro, Cala Fornells and Peguera -11 restaurants
28th April – Zone 4 - Portals Nous, Bendinat, Illetas Son Caliu, Cas Catala, and Costa d'en Blanes – 8 restaurants
There really is a wide choice of food from traditional Mallorquin to the far flung corners of the world available and at these prices it would be rude not to go and sample some. If you're in the area you know where to go.
