This winter, end your days in the snow with a moonlit dinner! In our country, once the day is over, there are several restaurants serving mountain cuisine which open exclusively to offer you the best night-time dining experience. You’ll enjoy an unforgettable dinner amidst a cosy, rustic and homey atmosphere that will make you feel right at home. However, the experience doesn’t end there, as many of these restaurants are found right on the slopes and the only way to get to them is by snowshoeing, doing ski mountaineering, comfortably riding a heated snowcat or, if you’re up for it, riding up in a giant sledge!
Read on to find out more about all the options!
Snowshoeing excursion to l’Ovella Negra
At the end of the Incles Valley, you’ll find this wonderful restaurant completely surrounded by nature located beside the river. Inside, l’Ovella Negra has a warm and relaxed atmosphere, with touches of wood and stone, which will make you feel right at home. As it specialises in traditional cuisine, you can sample the quintessential and traditional dishes of Andorra. To get to this charming little place, you can go snowshoeing or ski mountaineering. But if you prefer something less strenuous, you can go on an excursion with a heated snowcat, which will take you right to the front door of the restaurant without you having to break a sweat.
Gastronomic experience at Borda de la Coma
On the Ordino Arcalís side of the resort, we suggest having dinner at one of the resort’s most iconic restaurants: the Borda de la Coma restaurant. Located at the foot of the slopes, not only will you enjoy its cosy, comfortable atmosphere, its traditional dishes will get you warmed up in no time with the unique and distinctive flavours of Andorra! You can get there in different ways: by snowshoeing or ski mountaineering, going on a Gicafer excursion, which means riding a heated snowcat, or if you prefer something a little more Christmassy, you could ride up in a giant sledge right to the front door of the restaurant. In this case, however, it’s advisable to dress warmly as the temperatures may suddenly drop given that it’s out in the open.
Dinner next to the fire at the Borda Sorteny in Ordino
Located at the heart of the Sorteny Nature Park, this borda offers traditional dishes that will bring back memories of your childhood. With its specially curated menus for these magical nights, you’ll get to savour traditional mountain cuisine made using locally sourced, seasonal products. The mountain shelter has more than 150m of terrace where you can enjoy a drink with your loved ones while taking in the fantastic panoramic views of the valley under the moonlight. To get to the Borda, you’ll have to go snowshoeing or ski mountaineering on your own or, if you prefer, by hiring a mountain guide so you can climb up there with complete peace of mind.
