Really good restaurant and it's good if you left the owner guides around the menu. Good typical pyrines food.

Needless to say, el Crostó is our very favorite restaurant in the whole wide world. We love just about everything about it but especially the purée of potatoes, and broad beans with cured ham, those are our usual starters, then for the main course we just pick what he has to offer for the night. The dishes are the usual... More

Everything here is to die for. Ok the decor is eclectic but Jordi runs a fantastic place everything is authentic local andorran cuisine. I love the mashed potato!!!. If you turn up on spec chances of getting in are close to zero in the evening.

Liked everything about it: Food, atmosphere, Jordi's (owner) show.... But food in particular, the quality of the ingredients is spectacular. Make sure you book well in advance!

I was having dinner with my wife on august 2013 in this small and hidden restaurant. The first time we went, it was fully booked, so we had to come back the day after. It is not a traditional restaurant. The first thing that we did not understand was that the menu with prices were not shown in the main... More

The restaurant i small so that it is better to book in advance. The owner told us all the food available the day we were there. (No carte). My wife and myself selected and ordered two starters and two main courses and share all. Everything was delicious: Starters: 'Dent de lleo' salad (literally teeth of a lion salad). This is... More

Jordi's mashed potatoes or purée de patates as he would call it knocked my socks off the first time I had it and they are still off! Olé! However, we are now also in love with his Donja, it's an little dish of appetizer that he serves before taking your order and it's absolutely delicious. He prepares the Donja himself... More

El crosto is in my mind one one of the best restaurants anywhere, forget the price, I have paid for or five times as much and not eaten better. Jordi is a fantastic host no menu just he tells what he has. I eat here every time I have been to andorra. One point you have to mention you have... More
