Authentic food, excellent service

I have visited Spain a few times, and up until I ate in this restaurant, I wasn't a fan of Spanish food. But this place changed my opinion! Excellent food, excellent service. Waiter explained every dish is great detail (in Catalan - his English isn't great). Overall, a great dining experience!

As another reviewer has said eat/drink whatever Henrik recommends! We hunted this place down after doing a search on trip advisor for the best place in La Massana and we weren't disappointed. Lovely quaint décor, quirky and interesting. We went for lunch which was very quiet but it meant that we got the best of Henrik's advice. We had broad... More

You can find in Andorra many "Borda's" however, in many of them you will be delighted with the atmosphere and energies but will be quiet disappointed with the food. In La Borda Xica you will gain both - great ambient, atmosphere, very close friendly service and on top of all great food. A very small coזy place, owner cooks all... More

We had an incredible meal at La Borda Xica, would recommend the borda xica grillade. The service was amazing with a lovely atmosphere. Chocolate pudding and mango cheesecake for dessert were also delicious. We will be back.

Do yourself a favour. Book a table and eat/drink whatever Henrik recommends (as he would say the price is not offensive for what you get), and you will have an amazing experience, in terms of food, drink and hospitality. We were lucky to go on a Tuesday night out of season, and were the only ones in there so he... More

It took us a while to find this restaurant (look for the church in the village) but it was worth the effort. On arrival we thought it was closed, but the restaurant is upstairs, so do go through the front door and up the stairs. We were the only diners for lunch the day we went but the owner made... More

We read about this restaurant on Tripadvisor. Very glad we went there. It was a superb meal in a very cozy restaurant. There are not many tables and it is important to reserve and turn up on time.

Man and wife team (he waits tables, she cooks) delight with fantastic hospitality, and even better food. The atmosphere seems both authentic and romantic (save the music - Rick Astely and Catalan cuisine seem an odd couple). My Catalan girlfriend was as impressed as I was, and we'd both return. Short car ride from Andorra la Vella and any spot... More

Around 6 years living in Andorra. Honestly one of the best experiences. Ask the manager for a wine recommendation...fantastic wine culture and explanations!
