Soldeu Mountain Restaurants

Grandvalira has 33 on-mountain eating and drinking places offering a wider range of cuisine and eating experiences, from full-service restaurants to cafeterias and small huts where you can easily pit stop without even taking off your skis.

Whether you want to lunch on outdoor terrace with great panoramic views of the Andorran Pyrenees or you snuggle up around a warm fireplace in a traditional mountain inn or just want to grab a bite to eat on the fly, there's a good choice and Grandvalira has codified its mountain restaurants into five categories to ease selection and budgeting:

Top of the tree are 6 full-service 'Restaurants with charm', one in each resort sector, mostly with good views of the ski area and serving international cuisine at a cost of around 36 euros per head.

On a mission to clock the maximum amount of skiing and too busy for anything but a fast pit stop? Then you can pit stop at one of 16 'Xirixuca (small wooden shelter or stone hut) for a quick bite to eat or a drink sometimes without having to dismount from your skis or your board.
