The northern part of the island is one of those destinations you do not expect to find in Majorca. Althouth it welcomes many tourists each year, the north of Majorca is a region shielded by the Sierra de Tramontana mountains with fantastic white-sand beaches and clear-water coves. The distinctive turquoise colour of the sea here is in no way inferior to the Caribbean sea.
In this privileged setting, a host of eating options can be found in Alcudia and the surrounding areas so that you may enjoy a special stay.
Refreshment stand on the beach
Sa Platgeta Des Mal Pas, Playa Es Mal Pas, s/n, Alcudia. (Es Mal Pas beach)
This refreshment stand is located on one of the finest beaches in Alcudia. The place is small but has spectacular views. In the summer, there is no better way to end a perfect day on the beach than eating some fresh sardines while your bare feet are caressing the sand.
Ca’n Gavella. Capellans, 136, Can Picafort.
Ca’n Gavella is one of those refreshment stands that is a must if you stay in the northern part of Majorca. It is highly recommended to taste the paella, both in the restaurant and on the terrace which is set up right on the sand, under the shelter of a canopy.
Food in Majorca
Los Patos. Camí Can Blau, 42, Puerto de Alcudia.
An old rice-drying warehouse turned into a restaurant is the best way to define this place offering Majorcan food, such as the pepper pie, the «tombet» (traditional vegetable dish), and the fresh fish coming right out of the Alcudia Bay. It features a big garden with a playground and private car park.
Restaurante mirador de la Victoria. Camí de la Victoria s/n, Alcudia. (De la Victoria Lookout Restaurant)
Located right next to the Chapel bearing the same name, this Majorcan food restaurant offers a range of regional dishes, such as pork loin and cabbage, «frito mallorquín» (fried meat and vegetable dish), rice dishes and paella, mountain snails, and roast meat.
Restaurante Miramar. Paseo Marítimo, 2, Alcudia. (Miramar Restaurant)
Founded in 1871, the Miramar Restaurant stands out due to its Mediterranean cuisine based on fresh produce such as fish, seafood, and meat. The restaurant has a pleasant terrace with views to the Alcudia fishing harbour.
This building used to host the former Hotel Miramar where the founders of JS Hotels, Juan Socias and Catalina Fornés, set up their business in 1956.
Restaurante Boy. Avenida de La Albufera, 16, Playa de Muro.
This restaurant specialises in grilled meat coming from Galicia and Asturias, but also has the best imported meat, such as the Irish Angus beef, ox meat from Nebraska (USA), and Australian Angus beef medallion.
This is only a first glimpse at the gastronomical routes along the northern part of Majorca. We will soon share more recommendations of food options in the north of Majorca. Stay tuned to our next posts on the JS Hotels Blog!
