Apres Ski in Pas De La Casa

On the whole food and drink is cheaper in Andorra. Pas de la Casa has a seemingly infinite number of bars, so you’ll not go thirsty. and eating out in Andorra is cheaper than in ski resorts in the Alps. 

Apres-Ski Bars & Restaurants in Pas de la Casa

Pas de la Casa is full of places to eat and with only a 4% tax on spirits, ordering a beer or glass of wine with your meal will cost considerably less than it does in ski resorts in the Alps.

At the bottom of the “tubs” run are a few privately owned eateries – Olympiades Inn, Pas 83 and L’Husky bar creperia which serves a mean couscous on Wednesday evenings.

Once off the slopes, there is no shortage of restaurants. Asterix Bar Restaurant, Llac Negre, Restaurant Envalira and McDonalds are all good for snack food. A bit more upmarket is KSB (376 856 453) which does chargrilled meat dishes, then at midnight if not sooner is usually taken over by people bevvying up for a night on the town.

Although looking like a typical Andorran mountain lodge, El Raco d’en Sorolla (376 855 199) is the best restaurant in Pas de la Casa for Middle Eastern and Moroccan food and on alternative Fridays provides live music.

Cuisine du Perigord (376 856 887) is probably the best tapas bar with excellent French and Spanish dishes to tempt you: oysters, charcuterie, carpaccio, black leg country ham and good value set meals.

For those who would rather work out in a gym, the Sports & Socio-Cultural Complex of Pas de la Casa (376 856 830) is open till 9 pm every night.

The Village of Pas De La Casa 

Pas de la Casa will never win any architectural awards. It’s a functional resort built to get people onto its slopes and into its shops.

Built on the lower slopes of the Costa Rodona, the centre of the resort is dominated by a car park and the four-storey Olympic shopping centre. The rest is hotels, shops, eateries and cars.

The only thing Pas de la Casa has done to improve the look of the place is to ban coaches from its relatively narrow streets, but this is a mixed blessing as it means that new arrivals now have to walk up to their hotels from the coach park while their luggage is transferred.

Other Activities in Pas De La Casa

If you want a taste of real Andorra go to the capital or a resort like Arinsal which was a thriving farmers’ village before skiing became its major money spinner. Meanwhile enjoy Pas de la Casa for what it is – a place to drink, dance, eat and shell out a small fortune on the latest gadgets that haven’t reached Dixon’s yet at a fraction of the price you’ll pay in the UK. Across the border, the French have excellent ski slopes but come to Pas de la Casa just for the shopping.

For something completely different ask at the tourist office about the new Grandvalira ice circuit at Pas de la Casa where you can drive a car across snow and ice on a specially designed track.
