Terraces in the heart of nature
The arrival of the hot weather is the perfect time to enjoy our sunniest summer terraces! The ski resorts offer no end of options for enjoying delicious snacks and meals while admiring the spectacular panoramic views. The terraces at Llac de Pessons in Grau Roig, Coma d’Arcalís in Ordino, Borda de Conangle in Naturland and Pla de la Cot in La Massana are just a few examples. Plus, if you’re looking for a little extra entertainment in the form of live music, don’t miss L’Abarset, a must-see destination in Grandvalira where you can enjoy sets by the country’s leading DJs.
However, ski resorts aren’t the only place you can find terraces in the heart of nature. Andorra boasts such a wealth of natural environments that you’ll easily find other terraces in the great outdoors, like the ones at La Borda del Pi and Roc del Quer in Canillo Valley, at an altitude of 1,890 metres; L’Ovella Negra in Incles Valley; the terrace at L’Era del Rossell, just a few metres from the Basilica of Our Lady of Meritxell; or the Terrace Les Pardines 1819 Mountain Suites & SPA - located in an idyllic setting surrounded by nature.
Panoramic terraces at our hotels
If you’re looking for comfort without having to leave your accommodation, you’ll be pleased to know that the country’s most iconic hotels are also home to many terraces. In the high parishes you can find terraces at the restaurant Sol i Neu Club Hermitage and the Naudi Hotel (among others), where exquisite cuisine combines with spectacular views over the surrounding valleys. The Moët & Chandon Terrace at the Park Piolets MountainHotel & Spa is another must on the list of things to do. It specializes in cocktails and is also a place to enjoy live music.
If you prefer a more central location, there are numerous options near the capital, such as the Roof Top Van at the Golden Tulip Andorra Fènix Hotel: a terrace boasting panoramic views and market cuisine in a unique setting with fire performers, light shows and live music. You can also visit the rooftop terrace at the Plan B aparthotel, where your gastronomic experience will be complemented by panoramic views over the city and river.
Terraces in an urban setting
Throughout the pedestrianised streets, busy thoroughfares and historic town centres you’ll find a wide and varied selection of terraces where you can take a break and enjoy a cold drink before carrying on with your day.
The old quarters: between history and culture
Our towns have many secrets to share with you, as well as a varied and delicious range of dining options. When visiting Andorra’s historic town centres you’ll enjoy the perfect combination of history and culture, as well as the opportunity to relax and enjoy a cold drink or bite to eat in the open air. To this end, we invite you to take a stroll through our cobbled streets and enjoy a unique atmosphere redolent with history. The terraces at Topic bar and restaurant in Ordino, La Birreria in the old quarter of Andorra la Vella and the well-known Bare Nostrum in the parish of Sant Julià de Lòria are just a few examples.
Terraces in pedestrianised town centres
In Andorra, we love shopping; but we also love strolling through the streets and and enjoying relaxation and leisure time with our loved ones. Indeed, we enjoy it so much that you’ll notice how our most central streets are all pedestrianised. Collectively known as The Shopping Mile, there are countless streets to explore, as well as squares and hidden corners where you can have a drink or a bite to eat. In the middle of the street you’ll find a whole string of terraces, as well as places like Kram on Avinguda Meritxell and Iqos Lounge on Carrer de la Unió, among many others. Last but not least, don’t forget that the streets aren’t the only option: if you’re looking for somewhere quieter and more relaxed, the areas overlooking the river are also a great choice. There you’ll find a number of ideal venues, such as Bar 13,5º, Plató restaurant and Barra Mar’s, where you can enjoy a bite to eat in a more tranquil setting, lulled by the murmuring soundtrack of the river.
Terraces in our most iconic squares
Without a doubt, Andorra’s squares are the ideal place to enjoy a drink or bite to eat while out with your kids. Not only do they offer a wide range of terraces where you can choose from a variety of specialities; they also host numerous celebrations and popular activities. Refugi Alpí in Plaça de la Rotonda, the Hard Rock Café in the square that housed the old fire station, and Cal Marquet in Plaça Coprínceps are just some of the many examples. Squares like these can be found in every parish: Plaça de les Arcades in Andorra la Vella’s historic city centre; Plaça Coprínceps in Escaldes-Engordany; Plaça de la Germandat in Sant Julià de Lòria; Plaça de Montaup in Canillo; Plaça de les Fontetes in la Massana; Plaça Major in Ordino; and Plaça dels Arínsols in Encamp. The choice is yours!
Lastly, we invite you to take a stroll through our streets, villages and parishes, and see for yourself the endless range of options. You’ll find it hard to choose just one!
