If you like blind guided food experience go to El Crusto and put your apetite in the owner hands.
You will be satisfied with the experience.
Dishes are really good.
Perhaps the only disappointing point will came with the bill but...
Enjoy this experience at the Andorra la Vella old city center.

My boyfriend and I arrived in Andorra a bit later than expected. This restaurant was close to where we were staying so we gave it a try. What a wonderful treat. Although they were closing soon they greeted us and made us feel welcome. Our salad was full of flavor and our main was delicious and unique. Also had a nice red wine. The experience and food were both fantastic. The prices were very reasonable as well.

Despite he's actually ranked 6 in Andorra, this place is definatly number one if you take into consideration that he only serves 7 tables 5 days a week what make it have less reviews than other more exposed restaurants. Visit this place and you will adore jordi the waiter and the owner, who will "sing from the heart" the menu and make you love the food even before tasting it. Taste the duck the foie the rabbit the meat... all traditional Andorra food. It's a unique experience don't miss it.

We dine at at el Crostó once every few months and as expected the food is always delicious. The French fries are made with duck fat, the mashed potatoes are out of this world. The best is Donja which can only be found here since Jordi the owner makes it himself and he serves a few pieces of it just to hold you before he takes your order.

As reported, El Crosto is a very small restaurant with only seven tables and does a single lunch and dinner service. As a result it's very hard to secure a reservation.

There is no printed menu and the food on offer for the day is read out by the owner, Jordi, from a hand written scrap of paper. The food is typical Catalan/Andorran with the slightest of modern twists.

The main attraction to this place (well so it seems) is the "show" that is put on by Jordi. His description of the menu is with real creativity and passion with a touch of dead pan humour - I must admit that I thought he was a little grumpy to begin but this is just his unique style that you should not let put you off.

The overall experience was excellent, the food was delicious, and the price was very reasonable - 3 courses for two people, a bottle of wine and two beers came to 80 euros.

Of the 18 people eating there when I visited, 11 were regulars and all had booked many weeks in advance. This is the fourth visit to andorra where I've tried to eat here and the only time that I was successful.

This was no1 on trio advisor for a long time and has since been surpassed by other places that have a higher turnover of diners and therefore more reviews. Having eaten in all but 1 of the places ranked higher I would say that this place for me is the best.
