LA COMA & LA BRASSERIE RESTAURANTS (££)
Sector: La Coma
Boasting a sunny terrace (self-service only) overlooking the pistes and the nearby chairlift terminals, with views of Andorra's most northerly peaks (marking the frontier with France) and up over the entire La Coma snowbowl ski area to the impressive cirque of mountains that surround and shelter this sector.
The main entrance leads in from just above piste level, into a mezzanine stairwell: there are a couple of arcade games machines and drinks/confectionery vending machines just inside; WCs and a plain, bare, picnic room are downstairs;
the self-service La Coma Restaurant is up on the first floor; the top floor houses the à la carte La Brasserie Restaurant.
La Coma: this bright canteen-like self-service saloon offers a range of snacks (paninis, pizza slices, hamburgers, etc.) and basic grills; plus a small salad buffet and a range of pastas and meat-&-two-veg dishes.
There is a microwave oven near the entrance area for reheating food if it is cooling too quickly out on the terrace.
La Brasserie: this à la carte dining room on the top floor is much nicer than the main restaurant saloon: it has a bright open-plan chalet feel, with plenty of natural daylight and good views from its ceiling-to-floor windows.
The menu is based on more refined versions of the classic grills offered downstairs in the main self-service restaurant, together with one or two fresh fish dishes, plus a range of appetising first courses and puddings.
Wine list: a short, but adequate, selection of popular Iberian and French wines.
