Nonwithstanding the fact we queued for an hour, I should not have minded if the experience was justified.
UNDERWHELMING..to say the least
It promised much, but up close, did not deliver.
Sushi- tasteless
BBQ,I had white fish, my party had sausauges)- all Undercooked...( How can one undercook thin fillet of white fish..that would NOT move from the skin...RAW!)
Sausauges pink in the middle
Children were very surprised and NOT impressed that the "raspberries" in a bowl beside the chocolate fountain,( yes, a scene stealer), were NOT REAL.....but rubbery sweets.
The bread was good, the cheese was plentiful , but the wine,(inclusive), was undrinkable,(The red was awfell, and we have had some 'corkers' in our day..but literally could NOT stomach this)
Deserts were plentiful, if you go in for that....but I cannot get past the fish and BBQ which were undercooked.
It was a slightly "rushed " experience too...not at all relaxing.
I had a queasy feeling next morning...(? the partially eaten fish?)
Certainly cannot recommend, and at 19.50 Euro per head, (children only go cheaper if less than 7 rs I think,(We had a 10+ 11yr old), not delivering on quality or taste.
Very disappointing
Will definitely NOT be back + suggest avoid.

The place is inside of the shopping center Pyrenees. It’s one of the best buffet that I have been for the quality of the food. The place is nice and clean and it’s not the typical buffet overcrowded. The only negative point is we waited for more than 40’ because the line was very long.
Great value for eating (drinks are included).

Leaving aside the queueing time (count on 30 minutes minimum if you plan having lunch later than 2 pm) the food is Great. A Nice variety of food to choose from pasta, vegetables, paella, sushi, freshly cooked fish and meat, and plenty of cheese and Iberic Ham. There is also a wide range of desserts and I recommend the tiramisu and the chocolatw Fondue with fruit pieces. The price is on average (17.50€) and the staff is OK Although you don’t Need much of attention as you serve Yourself.

Food is boring (always the same) good seafood but sushi was (2 times I visited) not fresh with very limited selection.
Staff very poor and not attentive (they were not clearing table)...

Re-opened at beginning of December 2017 with a more open plan seating system. It is still excellent value for money at €17.50 for all you can eat and drink. You are still allocated a table in a specific area on arrival, ( it made it easy for the staff to control the customers) but the new plan has liberated the Andorran diners, a large number of whom on Day 2 of the new regime were asking to move tables into a different area, now they could see nicer chairs, benches and tables on offer. They have moved the bar as well into Area 1. So, if you want to move, just ask!
