Marquet is an Andorran institution!

It is part gourmet shop, part buzzy wine bar and part restaurant.

There are two locations in Andorra one at this address and a newer venue in the L'Illa
shopping and cinema complex.
Although I have been to both I'm more likely to be in the L'llia bar with a cold glass of Chablis
and some top notch jamon or smoked salmon blinis. Oysters in the season are amazing.
Sure it's fairly expensive but good quality food and wine always comes at a price. There are lots of cheap and cheerful places to eat and drink in Andorra. This is for the more discerning traveller. I love it!

I've been a costumer of Marquet for many years and it has never stopped to amaze me. It is an unique concept, that mixes gourmet shop and restaurant where you can try nearly everything that you can see. Of course, they have a menu, but also daily specials, depending on arrivals and on season products, and every dish is prepared with premium quality products. So either you try their oysters, or their smoked salmon or their beef strogonoff (one of their all-time classics), or their cheeses, you will be treating yourself with some of the finest ones you will ever try. Their cellar is also worth the visit. It is filled with fine wines, rare pearls and unique bottles, not to mention their enormous list of vintage cognacs, armagnacs and other liqueurs. The service is up to the par of the quality of the food and the drink. The owner, Jordi, as well as his son and daughter are always there for you to make you feel like at home, giving you advices and discovering new gastronomic jewels for you. So, Marquet is not only a place where you will have an incredible meal, it is also a place where you will learn to love food and all related to it, a complete and amazing foodie experience.

If I was to name my favourite restaurant, Marquet would be very near the top.

My wife and I go to Andorra 2-3 times per year on weekend breaks. We wouldn't miss a meal at Marquet for the world! It's an event for us. Sometimes we go on both days.

The recipe is simple: Top quality ingredients. The establishment both sells them in a small shop on the ground floor, and uses them to cook the meals served in the restaurant upstairs.

The menu is quite reduced, but they always have 3 or 4 extra daily meals not mentioned in the menu.
I especially love the salads. If you choose the 'Large' option, that's the only meal you need.

Service is very good. A gentleman (the owner?) can ALWAYS be found carving jamón ham in the vestibule. He greets you, sometimes mentions an item freshly brought in. Just the other day he stopped by our table to tell us that a supplier from Mallorca had just brought in some excellent Sobrasada. "You have to try it!" And then he brings a small portion for tasting.

I love this place. It's unique.

At the well-appointed restaurant upstairs, a generous spoonful of the canneloni which I 'snatched' from the neighboring plate revealed a white sauce which was less to my liking, this bechamel was bland and grainy and emphasized my preference for the bolognese tomato version. Downstairs, by the delicatessen's entrance, the elegant Senor Marquet is in a flurry of slicing by hand the prized jamon Iberico into delicate portions, never mind that it is not the elusive bellota Joselito I've been searching for, it was nonetheless a musky-creamy delicious ham, worthy of every praise. Here, downstairs, languidly sip your Aaltos wine, discover canned bonito belly morsels, the San Filippo anchovies on a sunny midday afternoon at this hole-in-the wall storehouse of delights.

Amazing gormet food, flawless service, and one of the best dessert I ever ate (Amalia's dessert).
A must stop point when in Andorra.
