From our hotel, right on the edge of Playa D’Alcudia, it’s about seven or eight euros in a taxi into either the port, or the old town of Alcudia. They each have a different vibe: the old town is full of courtyard restaurants and posh shops and the port is more of a playground with cocktails and lots of people promenading along the marina, browsing in the market stalls. We enjoyed both, and had different dining experiences. In the port, we dined at Bistro Mar, right on the marina, where they serve chunky steaks, paellas and fish dishes, accompanied by lovely alioli.
In the old town we chose La Taverna, a courtyard restaurant where we had a selection of tapas served on a turntable.
This broad bean and jamon salad was delicious.
There’s some really good wine to be had here – we went with the Maitre D’s recommendation.
After dinner we usually have a wander around. The old town is particularly pretty in the evening when the crowds have gone home. There are lots of boutiques and pottery shops to browse and I almost always come home with something.
