We were looking for a place for a late lunch and cane across Buda. The had a group in a separate area celebrating a birthday but we were the only customers at that time. Food was very good and service was great. They were nice enough to compliment us with some aperitifs while waiting and in general very attentive with any question or request. I think service is very important and they get a 10 for that. The meal was not that cheap but neither very expensive. I think it was worth for quality in general. Plus the setting is very original.

We had the lunch set menu in the garden. As we were three we managed to taste all the courses available: all exellent, well executed and most of them presented in an imaginative way.

We checked on the menu and it was very imaginative as well, although it looked a bit overpriced.

Service is a bit unexperienced and slow, but we had no issue with them.

The spot is a kind of oasis next to the main road. Inside deco is very nice and the gardens are zen oriented. Good chill-out trance music all around.

All together makes this restaurant a very good alternative for special occasions for couples or small group... and it has a very nice club next to it ;-)

the raw tuna is outstanding, service perfect and the dessert a tarte tatin among the best ever. sad that the entrance is very hidden a bit of a labyrinth. large free parking beside the place.

Open letter to the owner of Buda

Dear Owner,

Andorra doesn't have many places that try and break the mould and do something chic, perhaps Buda is the only one. For that I can congratulate you.

And it's perhaps for that reason of no competition your staff have become a little arrogant.

Buda is reminiscent of Bambuddha Grove in Ibiza, the ambience, decor, everything is nicely set out, it's a cool place, you've done well.

The food is absolutely exceptional, even if the menu lacks imagination in my opinion. Again another hit.

The service however, from our experience of the one waitress that night, is uptight and rude, as per these examples -

- Tuesday evening - there was one other table in asides us. We choose our table. The waitress rushed over. "You can't sit there - it's 30 Euros". Understandable if the place is busy or the weekend, but nonsense to deprive customers of the best spot in a deserted restaurant.

- We then chose another perfectly fine and clean looking spot. "You can't sit there it's not clean." Our answer "Well clean it then please."

- On sitting down and looking at the menus, the waitress told us to "hurry up as you've come on a bad night...." Not a way to speak to half your revenue for the night. As we are half your customers, it could have been a lot worse if we'd walked out.

- With my order I asked for a plate of vegetables. The waitress looked as me as if I had ordered a saffron coated fillet of monkey brains, with a 24 carat speckled gold sauce. And after a long pause said "I'll ask the chef." Obviously it was beyond him and no vegetables ever came.

All in all, great food, great ambience, but the idiotic people dealing with customers will bring the whole house of cards down if you fail to act and get them treated people with respect.

You are only as good as your weakest link, and from what others have said to me, poor service at Budha is the norm not the exception.

I look forward to your reply.

A super hip nite spot with a very very nice restaurant that was also really surprisingly good value

The service was excellent, food though not huge portions was very good. I went for a very rich crayfish soup followed by lamb chops and a really pretty and well presented dessert. It came out at maybe 35 per head, very nice

One tip is unlike most places in Andorra it has a big carpark and it is a bit of a walk if you decide to do that along the main road from Spain which you then have to cross. Drive or take a cab from town
