Smile Mirador de la Victoria Restaurant

We were wondering if anyone knows if you can walk to the restaurant from Puerto Pollensa? Realise that the walk is a steep one but we'd like to try rather than take a taxi. Any help would be appreciated .

You could but it is a long walk

google maps suggests 14 km and nearly 3 hours (each way ).

see if this link works on the new google maps:

We went by car and it took twenty minutes. Fabulous meal out on the terrace, looking over the bay to Puerto Pollensa, on a summers evening, it was fabulous.

Try cycling, we do it in the summer, only about an hour, allowing for beer stops, of cause longer on the way back!!

Yes it is a long walk, especially if the weather is hot. Its not particularly steep, in fact it's very flat until the last couple of kilometres which are reasonably steep.
If you want to walk part way, just get the bus to Alcudia Old Town - or a stop well on the way to Alcudia Old Town - and walk from there. The buses from P.P. to Alcudia are very regular, about every ten or fifteen minutes. If you get desperate you can always get a taxi back, they will order one for you at La Victoria restaurant.
I have only been by car, though I've seen many people of all ages (literally 18 to 80) arrive there by cycle from P.P. In fact one couple I met - both in their 80's - cycled from P.P. to La Victoria and then set off to the top of the nearby mountains with views over the vast Bay of Alcudia. Made me feel a bit of a fake arriving there by car!
The views in the other direction, towards P.P. / Formentor / the Cape (far north east of Mallorca) are also magnificent, either by day or by night, and the trip to La V. is very, very worthwhile. Enjoy.

Wow !!. No one loves walking more than me but even I would not entertain that. By the time you got there you'd be so tired ( not my word of choice but close) that you'd be asleep in 5 minutes.

That would depend on your back street knowledge of local watering holes. If you know a few, chances are you'd lose count, but if you know a lot then you'd lose consciousness

I'm with pollesafan on this - not an walk to do in the heat. I cycled up there last year and I think it took a good 50 minutes and I had to stop for a breather although I pretended I was taking photos (not being a regular cyclist!) Fantastic views across the bay but walking all the way from PP would certainly take a few hours.
Just entered it into Google Maps and it says it's 14km and takes 3 hours
Would love to share one or two of the images but can't fathom out how to insert images onto the forum - is it possible?

Re " Is it possible to insert images onto the forum "

It certainly is and hopefully you're better at it than I am, then I may get to see them before I die of old age

It's a nice view from up there on a clear day

A link with a view from the google camera van near the top of the road:

That looks like the perfect holiday summed up in those three photographs! What a beautiful place - aren't we all lucky to know about it?
