We had been travelling around France, Andorra and Spain for a while on our summer holiday and had tasted a range of cuisines that were delicious when we came to Gustus and this was by far the best food we had.

To start we had two types of freshly foraged mountain mushrooms, one with a poached egg and another with fois gras, as well as cheese with black truffle flakes. All of which were absolutely delicious. We could have eaten it all over again for a main and still been happy!

For the main course I had a large and perfectly cooked piece of turbot with a selection of vegetables which complimented the dish well. My partner ordered the pigs trotters (a local delicacy) with some trepidation, but when it came he loved it. Far from being the gelatinous meat that you think of, it was crispy and stuffed with duck confit. He was very impressed!

Despite the generous portion sizes we really wanted to try one of the deserts. So we chose the deep fried dough balls stuffed with pear and covered in a chocolate sauce; a lovely end to a great meal.

The staff were also incredibly helpful and attentive with perfect English. They talked us through each selection on the menu and made suggestions on the wine to pair with it.

10/10 would return if I come back to Andorra.

I had some trepidation upon seeing the menu, but given that our other choices all looked like low-end, generic eateries along the main drag in Andorra, I am very happy that we gave this a shot. I had the ox tail, which I would have never tried if not for the assurances of my companions, and it turned out to be very tasty. Everyone (all 4 of us) enjoyed our meal and the atmosphere.

Our multinational group of seven ate dinner at Gustus on a Friday night and were extremely well tended by the hostess, bartender, and chef throughout the dining experience. Each of our four shared courses was punctually delivered, one following the next. Each of us ordered an entree as well, which might have been too much food in the end, but it was all delicious. The menu was very broad, offering around 20 classic and contemporary dishes from Andorra and northern Spain/Catalunya. Our group sampled around half of these, and we were all quite satisfied. With a shared dessert, plenty of Tempranillo, and espresso, the bill per person came out to just under 50 euros, which seemed (coming from Amsterdam) a good value for the amount and quality of the food, to say nothing of the service and knowledge from the staff. Would definitely recommend Gustus to couples and small groups for a cheerful Andorran dining experience. Plan to make an evening of it, settle in for two or three hours and enjoy.

Friendly and family stile service. Multilingual. They do their best, therefore once restaurant is full service is more complicate. Good food.
