Have a meal to make your mouth water

Whether you’d like a simple lunch or a slap-up evening meal, you’ll be spoilt for choice in Alcudia as there are great places to eat in just about every part of the town.

The Old Town is full of local restaurants and cafés, so take a break from sightseeing or shopping and choose a pavement table where you can people-watch as you tuck into a plate of arroz brut, Majorca’s version of paella. If you’re on a Self Catering holiday or want a picnic for the beach, the huge markets on Tuesdays and Sundays have everything you could possibly need (look out for the chorizo-like sobrasada sausages), or you could pop into a bakery to pick up some bocadillos (filled rolls).

You’ll find the mealtime atmosphere is quite different down by the marina in Puerto de Alcudia. This is where the most stylish restaurants and the best views are. For a special meal, why not treat yourself to the caldereta de lanosta, a lobster stew that features on many of the seafood menus here. Other tasty Majorcan specialities include tumbet, a baked vegetable dish, and ensamaida, a pastry dessert that’s rich with lard.

And if you’ve had your fill of tapas and are craving a taste of home, or anywhere else in the world, the lively Bellevue strip has a great choice of international menus. Dinner here is a good starting point for a fun night of bar-hopping and clubbing, should you fancy it.
