“Looks cheesy, but they carry it off well”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

A warm welcome and attentive service. Food was Ok for the price, I'd go back.

Caveat...in my experience the food in Andorra is usually poor so "ok" and "would return" are borderline high praise.

“Don't do it if you value your health, wallet, or temperament”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

We had an extraordinarily bad experience at this tourist trap. From the beginning:
1) When opening a bottle of wine, the waiter shattered the neck of the bottle with his wine opener- and didn't say a word. Only after the first glass did we understand why there were shards of glass on our table, sprinkled in our appetizers and in the bottom of our glasses.
2) Undeterred, we switched tables and continued our meal (for the record, food was decent- not great, not bad (except fillet of fish promised without bones had bones, and "fresh anchovies in vinegar" were salted from a can), but the waitress forgot some of our order. When questioned- she said that because we'd ordered a couple of similar dishes, she decided that we wouldn't want all of them.
3) When the check came, 4 separate items were priced somewhere between 20% to 100% HIGHER than the menu price. After complaining, the price came down from an exorbitant EUR135 EUR for 2 people, to a merely overpriced EUR105 (no discount on wine)- INCLUDING 10% service charge!!!
4) Despite the awful experience, I left 100EUR cash, I certainly wasn't going to pay the full service charge after attempted murder and extortion (if I had 95EUR in cash I would have left less, but wanted to get out of there). The waiter then had the nerve to chase us out to the street to complain.
5) At this point I let the waiter, the manager, and half the restaurant (and now the TripAdvisor community) know vocally exactly what sort of of scam they were running.

This place isn't worth it, you can get mediocre food with far less stress at 20% of the price at a dozen other places nearby. Don't do it.

“Not good enough ...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

What a shame. This restaurant has all the scope and ambience to be fantastic but sadly it looks better than it actually is!

To be fair, if you order carefully and are demanding you will get some good food. I think some of the classics like good Spanish jamon and the freshly cooked tapas like calamares andaluz and small fried fish - pescaditos fritos are very good but some of the other dishes such as the pastas are shocking! Spaghetti carbonara consists of diced ham and uht cream mixed into some spaghetti with a bit of cheese. Lazy non cooking!

The staff are efficient and friendly and the service is generally good although it can feel a bit hurried at times. If you are max four then get a table in one of the booths by the bar for the best atmosphere. They will try and send you to another room but it's where the locals sit!

Despite the not so great food this restaurant is always buzzy so you will have fun especially if you order carefully.
