Virtually all of Andorra's bars operate as local cafés, usually offering an all-day snack menu too. Most of the larger and better quality hotels also offer a café service in their lounge bars, and are often the best choice for a more refined après ski experience.
Village café-bars are open from early morning until late in the evening.
Village restaurants are open 19:00hrs–midnight; only a few are open at lunchtime.
