Virtually all of Andorra's bars also 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 they 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.

Cal Lulu (££)
Long-established and very popular restaurant, with a cosy ambiance and quality menu: featuring French specialities (including frogs legs) and great pizzas cooked in a wood-fire oven.
Lotated on the main street at the lower end of the village centre.
There are a couple of other pizza restaurants in the village, but none match the quality or the atmosphere of Cal Lulu.
