The Grandvalira ski area offers a choice of more than 40 places to eat, ranging from those serving typical mountain dishes and gastronomic cuisine, to more mundane pizza and pasta. For something a little different, why not start the day with breakfast in one of the Xirixuca – the area’s typical wooden cabins?
Best places for lunch on the mountain
Llac de Pessons (+376 759 015), near Grau Roig, is the best mountain restaurant in Andorra. It serves fine grilled meat and enjoys dramatic views across the lake. Coll Blanc KSB (+376 856 225) is a table-service restaurant in the Pas de la Casa area, with wonderful views. Roc de les Bruixes (+376 890 696), above Canillo, is recommended, along with Solanelles (+376 759 008) in the Encamp sector. Gall de Bosc (+376 890 607), over in Soldeu, has Catalan cuisine and great views.
Resort restaurants with international flavour
There is a good selection of restaurants in Pas de la Casa itself, including those offering the local Catalan cuisine. However, we have received mixed reports: “The food in Pas de la Casa is average and overpriced,” said a reporter. Another adds: “If you want to prepare for the day ahead, go to Paddy’s for a hearty English-Irish breakfast, reasonably priced with a good atmosphere.” Chez Paulo (+376 855 596) offers pizzas and French cuisine. El Carlit (+376 855 211) is renowned for its mussels and trout with almonds. Refugo Calones (+376 856 040) has fondue and raclette. La Tagliatelle (+376 750 656) serves pizza and pasta dishes. L’Husky (+376 855 248) is recommended for “good people and good prices” and rated “fantastic” in the evening.
