Eat, drink and be merry in Carvoeiro this Easter with two initiatives aimed at celebrating the food of the Algarve and the Easter period.
Local business association Vozes Intensas, in conjunction with the Junta de Freguesia of Carvoeiro, has organised the first gastronomy festival of Carvoeiro which will run from March 31 until April 8 and will also coincide with an Easter fair being held in the centre of the town from April 5 until April 8.
The gastronomy festival will see 13 local restaurants offering a typical Algarvean dish at a special price every day for the duration of the festival.
Restaurants Tia Ilda, Onze, A Vela, Jota Lita, Tasco, Marisqueira, O Stop, A Fonte, A Gale, 3 Jotas, Taste, Ele & Ela and Pimenta Preta will all be serving up tasty treats with prices averaging around €15 for the meal.
Claudia Boto from Vozes Intensas said: “This is a great chance for people to try out some very special dishes in restaurants they may never have visited before. We hope that the festival will prove popular with both the local residents and visitors to the town over the Easter period.”
A map of the route, including details of each dish in each restaurant, will be available shortly and distributed within Carvoeiro and to local hotels.
Meanwhile, the Easter fair, which proved popular last year, will be returning to Carvoeiro complete with Easter bunnies, music, entertainment and stalls selling cakes, local produce, handicrafts, photographic art, among others.
The Easter fair will open each day from midday until around 6pm and will be located in the centre of Carvoeiro in the area in front of the Soares shop.
