Family Brunch at Louro

Christmas by Heinz Beck

Gusto is the Conrad Algarve’s signature gourmet restaurant, headed-up by Heinz Beck, who is renowned for producing an amazing realm of taste sensations. This Christmas, you’re invited to experience an exquisite six-course Christmas Eve dinner, or to spoil yourself  and your nearest and dearest, with a stunning five-course Christmas Day Lunch – both meals are accompanied by live entertainment in the elegant, modern ambiance of Gusto.

Christmas Eve at the Louro Restaurant is a four-course occasion. Traditional cuisine with a contemporary twist, a special menu for children and live entertainment throughout the evening, make the Louro a great choice for a celebration family dinner.  

If simply thinking about a multi-course feast leaves you feeling replete, then Louro Restaurant’s Christmas Day Brunch may be just the alternative that you’re looking for: a buffet of tempting dishes, with a children’s menu, a flute of Laurent-Perrier and plenty of festive entertainment – perfect!

Three great ways to see in the New Year

A gourmet dinner, a champagne buffet or a lavish night in Manhattan – yes, Manhattan, New York! However you choose to count down to 2016, the Conrad Algarve invites all guests to salute the midnight hour with a spectacular fireworks show and to join them in the Ballroom for some superb After Party entertainment.

The choice is yours

Choose Gusto’s eight-course celebration dinner and expect cuisine prepared with passion and designed to delight. A bottle of Laurent-Perrier Champagne is included with the meal, plus there will be live entertainment.

Alternatively, count down to midnight at the Louro Restaurant with an exceptional celebration buffet and wine pairing. A bottle of Laurent-Perrier champagne per couple is included and a special children’s menu will be available to please the younger dinners. All this and live entertainment too!

The Conrad’s New Year’s Eve Gala is the main event. The hotel’s Ballroom will be transformed into the world famous Studio 54, which opened in Manhattan on New York’s Lower East Side in the late1970s. It’s in the recreated Studio 54 that a five-course celebration dinner with wine pairing and a bottle of Laurent-Perrier Champagne, will lead you up to the fabulous firework show at midnight. Then you can continue to party until 2am, with the Suprema Band, supported by a terrific DJ, who will take you back in time to Manhattan, to relive the timeless sounds of the 70s and 80s.

The morning after

Wake up to a New Year Festive Brunch in the Louro Restaurant. Packed full of Portuguese specialties and washed down with a flute of Laurent-Perrier Champagne. Don’t worry, there will be time for a lie in – Brunch will be served from 12.30pm until 4pm and the Kids Club will be running activities and games to keep its young guests entertained.
