“Surprise, surprise for a gourmet experience at the 1940!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

Had a meeting a couple of month ago and this restaurant, and I was very surprised by the menu and what the Chef had to offer that night. Been here only once, but was a VERY good experience, overall.

Dishes where quick, good temperature, not frozen products (like other restaurants around), very fresh and a a feeling on wanting to go back another day to try the other dishes from the menu.

Of course experience can vary from persons and also by the waiter, who can make a very pleasant meal, or your worse. Fortunately we had been served by a Brazilian girl, which was very nice and polite all the time, making part of my dinner a very good one.

Overall, 4 of 5 score, elegant and sober place to have dinner, can be very romantic as well, not noisy and no tv's inside, which is very typical in Spain and Andorra (shamefully), so no screaming if Barça or Madrid are playing that night!

“first disappointment”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

Unfortunately I have to say that for the first time in this restaurant, we were disappointed.
I can not say that anything was downright bad but because we have experience with this restaurant for several years, we know that it can be much better.
I attribute this to the fact that the hotel was completely full, as well as the restaurant, two more staff. Apparently the kitchen was a bit of capacity is exceeded.

Thanks for your comments, we do apologise for things you did not like. We can accept that the service was not up to your standards, but saying that the food was disgusting , when other guests like it is not helping us to improve. Would you be so kind to let us know more details about the disgusting food you got and the day you came ? In order to analyse the menu and staff serving that day? Thanks again.

“Average”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

This was the first restaurant we visited in Andorra and the worst. Food was alright, but the staff were seemingly disinterested in our custom - the waiter (if you ever wondered where Manuel from Fawlty Towers got to...) got the order wrong, dropped a glass on the floor by our table and wasn't worried about picking up the broken bits from under our table and then quite rudely told us that the kitchen was closing and if we wanted desserts we needed to order them immediately. There are plenty of better places to go with friendlier staff so I would avoid this particular restaurant.

“Good meal - good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

We were staying in the hotel and decided to eat at the hotel (pouring rain outside). We each had the set menu (changes weekly). Food was of good quality and quantity. Enjoyed our meal and would recommend.
