Located in the city center, with views over one of the central squares. Had a 3 course lunch menu (€15+). Samosa salad as a starter, beef skewers as main, and some kind of white chocolate dessert (see pictures) Service was good, very good bread. Recommended.

On a sunny day in October 2016 we drove to Andorra La Vella. We parked the car and went to find the Dali sculpture of Time. It is an amazing piece of art. As it was lunch time we went to restaurant REFUGI overlooking the river and the sculpture. I loved the white table linen covering the substantial tables. The... More

Nice place, good service and wonderful meat (ask for the hot plate to cook yourself at the table, it is perfect!) inside there's a selection of old pictures of the alpine crossroad where the place stood in the '40 and now it is downtown La Vella! To visit for a good dinner

The restaurant has some pros and cons. First of all its food is really good. We ordered veal to be cooked on the stone and we found out that we are the ones who have to do the cooking on an electrically heated stone. It was really tasty and the sauces served with it were excellent. It is a fine... More

Always a big turn off for us is the rudeness of staff. We had just arrived and sat down when the waiter arrived and almost demanded what drinks we wanted, er , excuse me mister , can we at least have a drinks menu to see what you have !!! After giving us a menu we were then totally ignored... More

It is nice sitting outside the restaurant. The Menu to choose from offers plenty of nice food. The price tag is above average. The Food was between regular and good depending what you order. The waiter was very friendly. We will come back and try again maybe next time the Food will be better.

Expensive, iffy quality at best, and the worst kind of miserable waiters. If you are on Andorra I would not bother as far better options available.
