My friend and I decided to take a day trip to Andorra while we were visiting Barcelona. We had never been and were looking to cross more countries off of our lists. After shopping all morning, we had worked up quite an appetite, so we decided to find the nearest local restaurant. Big Ben was right next to 2 other restaurants, but we decided it's menu had more of what we were in the mood for. I got the hamburger and she got the carbonara, so we planned to split them both. The hamburger was alright, but the carbonara was to die for! I have had quite a few carbonara dishes since being in Spain, but Big Ben's in Andorra definitely won the award for best carbonara. The pricing wasn't bad, and we were able to enjoy our meal outside. I highly recommend the carbonara at Big Ben's!

For a true taste of France in Andorra you just have to visit this place. The owners of this brasserie have been in the Principality for years but have lost none of their gallic charm and eccentricities. With the lady of the house clucking around you, checking you've eaten your greens, and the master of the establishment popping out for a gallic cigarette between clients, the food arrives quickly, freshly made and in style. The atmosphere is always quiet, and you will just as well find bankers here from the local financial institutions as epicurean tourists diving off the main Avinguda Carlemany and its many tax free stores. The food is quite simply fabulous and the experience truly French.

Run by French couple, it's amazing place to have lunch or brunch or dinner. Great food, very friendly owners who serve themselves. Every day they have some new dishes. Very popular among locals

If you pass over the paper table-cloth, you will be very nicely surprised. The restaurant is family based one, where local habitués as well as foreign guests are welcome. The food is great and is done according the order (steak etc.). Wine selection is standard, in desserts you can have home made ones.

This small restaurant in the commercial centre of Andorra, near the Illa shopping center, offers a menu for about 13€ that includes a 1st dish, a 2nd dish and a desert. The food is what you would expect, nothing special but we'll prepared. You won't find such a complete meal for that price anywhere near the centre. I especially liked the paella.
The staff was very polite and helpful.
