A people watchers dream, this pair of friendly restaurants located in the old town of Alcudia with their cheerful checkered tablecloths, relaxed menu and great locations are well worth a visit.
Bistro 1909 has two locations an easy walk from each other in the centre of Alcudia. The larger of the two is situated in the Plaza de Constitucion with excellent views of the comings and goings of the busy Plaza, and the smaller one is located just down the road on Calle Mayor giving you a choice of view as you stop to sample their excellent food.
Open for lunch and dinner throughout the season these restaurants seem to draw most guests in with their Tapas Selection Platter, which consisting of cured meat, chorizo, goats cheese, potato omlette and marinated olives served with plenty of bread and aioli for €8.50. This platter is an excellent choice on its own or as a starter for two. Bistro 1909 are happy to make the platter for one or for two persons to share and are similarly relaxed about their Paellas which makes a nice change to many restaurants who reserve such items for pairs only.
There are other specials laid on each day including a Catch of the Day dish and these can vary between the two locations so feel free to wander from one to the other whilst you decide what you fancy. In addition to this there is a comprehensive menu serving lighter items at lunch time as well as meat dishes, fish, pasta, pizza, paella and salads throughout the day and a children’s menu also.
The service here is friendly, efficient and impressively multilingual and guests do not feel hurried to leave at the end of their meal but are welcome to linger over coffee and watch the goings on of the busy street and plaza. The restaurants have great reviews on tripadvisor and also a cheerful facebook page, which is well worth a look if you’re thinking about going. Bookings are not generally needed for lunchtime but are advised for dinner especially in peak season.
