CAFÉS & RESTAURANTS

Eating Out
The selected venues listed below are some of the most popular café-bars and recommended restaurants in the town of Pas de la Casa.
Please also read our guide to Andorran Gastronomy.

Pas de la Casa has a fair selection of pleasant cafés & patisseries, particularly in the narrow arcade-style passageways tucked behind the restaurant terraces on Avinguda d'Encamp. 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. In addition, virtually all of the town's bars also operate as local cafés, usually offering an all-day snack menu too.

As for restaurants, the town has a wide range, with something to suit most budgets and tastes: French, Spanish, Italian, Morrocan, Indian, Chinese, Tex-Mex and even Andorran!  Although the majority of mid-range establishments all tend to offer very similar standard ‘international’ fare, mainly focused on pizzas and grilled meats, many of Pas de la Casa's restaurants do have a more pronounced French influence than those in the other Andorra resorts, and so also tend to feature some traditional Alpine specialities such as raclettes and fondues too.

Café-bars are generally open from early morning until late in the evening.
Town restaurants are open 19:00hrs–midnight; most are also open at lunchtime.

ENCAMP AVENUE

Avinguda d'Encamp
This main street at the foot of the slopes in the central base area in Pas de la Casa is lined with cafés & restaurants. Most have roadside terraces and cosy interior dining rooms, some with rear windows overlooking the contrastingly less-developed French territory to the east. Many also have tempting window displays filled with cakes & pastries, and function as coffee shops as well as full-service restaurants.

Some of the nicest are:
Del Roma; La Brasa; La Gratinada; La Gralella; and Café Portofino.
