Premium artistic rendering on classic tapas dishes
The Cal Bonavida restaurant looks like a traditional Andorran restaurant from the outside. It looks like an expensive traditional Andorran restaurant, and by it's location bang in a central block opposite the council building and cable car terminus you might expect that: but its not. It's actually a tapas restaurant that serves all the usual spanish style tapas dishes but very prettily rendered in a premium experience. They also utilise produce available locally for a unique menu - like french brie cheese and mountain mushrooms, that you wouldn't get in "spanish" tapas. Don't expect your belly to be bloated (unless you go crazy - and spend a lot of money), the dishes are small, but a sensory delight.
They have a chef from Portugal there, and it his creations that you will enjoy. For foreigners the beauty about tapas is that you can randomly plump for a few dishes and the chances are you will pick some winners. As a "local" I can now say there were no losers in the dishes that were presented to us.
The house wine was excellent, just a glass - it's daytime. Actually I had 2 it was so good, and the wife drove home.
