We had a great dinner here - lots of Andorran classics with a refined touch (aged beef with foie, apple tart with peanut ice cream) and beautiful, welcoming surroundings. Service was warm and friendly and the wine list comprehensive. One slight niggle was that my octopus Catalan came sliced instead of in one beautiful piece as others on this site have had but otherwise, a great restaurant and very good value

We appreciate your opinion on TripAdvisor and we are glad that you had a good gastronomic moment in our restaurant.

I'm going to tell you a truism: an octopus has eight legs, of course, but not all have the same size. The octopi have four long legs and four shorter ones. From the short and the beginning of the longest, we serve the whole octopus, but the back of the long leg, we serve it in slices. It is exactly the same quality and texture.

Next time, it will be a pleasure to serve you the octopus as you ask.

See you soon.

After trekking for a few days on the GR11 we were lookjng forward to little rest in the town of Encamp, but found it to be quite biring and full of traffic, although blesse with soms very welcoming people. What saved the experience for us and made our stay worthwhile was an unexpectedly wonderful meal at Borda Vella restautrant. The food was creatively cinceived and exquisitly presented. The srvice impeccable. We were fruly awed! d

We decided to go on a day trip to Andora from Barcelona, and Borda Vella was a place we picked on Trip Advisor to have lunch. After we had our starters we started making jokes that it was so good that it could have been easily the purpose of our visit. The main dishes were only going to support that idea! It was a contemporary cuisine with a distinct mark of modern technology and food preparation techniques. Everything we had was, tasty, delicate, very appealingly presented. Friendly and professional service and moderate prices toppled the overall very memorable visit.

Fantastic service and food. Caprese salad is unique to the restaurant and was very flavourful and had an interesting twist!

We also had the octopus and scallops for mains- delicious. Staff were very friendly.

Highly recommend!
