Majorca is synonymous with beaches, parties and sunshine, but also with gastronomy. The island has an extensive culinary tradition that is ably represented by the many restaurants that operate throughout its geography.
As a cycling hotel in Majorca it is our job to provide you with the most comprehensive information available about this sport. For this very reason, today it is our pleasure to offer you a guide to some of the best restaurants in Majorca that are located along some of the main cycling routes so you can discover authentic Majorcan cuisine while touring the island on your bike.
We start with one of the most popular routes in the north of the Island, the MA-2130, which connects Inca with Lluc monastery and is home to one of the best restaurants in Majorca for a bicycle stop, the Coll de sa Bataia Restaurant, a small locale with a fantastic terrace perfect for recovering after a hard ascent and with an area especially adapted bicycle parking.
The Manacor road (M-15) intersects with many major Majorcan cycling routes and also features three of the island’s most popular and renowned restaurants. In the town of Algaida there is Cal Dimoni, famous for its culinary tradition among locals and visitors alike. Next up, between Vilafranca and Manacor you can find Es Cruce, offering typical Majorcan cuisine, excellent value for money and the perfect place to try caragols (snails) or barbequed meats. Finally, in Manacor town, let yourself be amazed by the creative Majorcan cuisine of the Can March Restaurant, a locale famous for its superb reinventions of traditional recipes using the freshest produce on the market.
If your choice is any of the cycling routes heading towards Inca, Mallorca, on the MA-13A, we recommend Sa Sini Pizzeria, in Santa Maria, a restaurant that, in addition to great pizzas, offers a wide selection of traditional dishes and, most importantly, an impressive variety of homemade desserts. On the other hand, if you're looking for a truly unique gastro experience, head for Celler Can Amer, Inca, where you will be treated to local produce and recipes but with an innovative twist.
