With the idea of making Calvia’s 'Mostra de Cuines' an event that can be enjoyed by the maximum amount of people, restaurants are encouraged to offer alternative menus (always at the same price as shown in their advertising) – children’s menus, so that whole families can go, gluten-free menus and vegetarian menus.

6, 7, and 8 October: Peguera, Cala Fornells, el Toro, es Capdella, Son Ferrer
13, 14, and 15 October: Cas Catala, Bendinat, Illetes, Portals Nous, Costa d’en Blanes, Son Caliu
