We had lunch today and although we had read very good reports...the cosy atmosphere, the familiar handling of the restaurant and the exceptional food have given us one of the best ratio cost/experience. There is a very nice menu at 40€ with many good traditional recipes. A very good menu for children also available. Awesome!

I was arround with my mother and decided to try because of the fame it has. It tries to be a gastronomic experience of a certain level but it finally becomes a trandition bender and overpriced. I,m sorry to say that you can eat better in any other traditional restaurant in the valley for a half price and really traditional food. I tried the soup (olla aranesa) and i was totaly dissapointed. They try to make value of a professional misse en place but this is not so easy my friends. Sometimes it is better to serve a traditional soup in the traditional way. Dont get me wrong, the service is nice and the place is pretty fine. The chefs they can cook but the price is that of a high level restaurant and they only serve very expensive products cooked in a very simple way and presented trying to seem modern. As many other restaurants they copy some things fron the big ones like celler de can roca and sant pau but they just get the surface of it. I do NOT recommend this restaurant because it has no added value. The food is ok but why should you pay so many money when you have dozens of cheaper and excelent places in less than 10 km arround. This place is clearly designed for local rich people that need to show their wealth going to expensive places. My technical comments in the gastronomy level: Serving champaigne at the arrival is not adding value to the meal, it is only a service plus for those who drink. Serving a half pickled quail (in brine) as appetizer is not helping a lot to enjoy a meal (the quail was nice anyway). the soup was very normal...sont believe you when you say it is the 1971 receip...sorry. they mushrooms cream was nice but didnt need the royal, nor the gelatin nor the other texures. It was a little bit plain even with all this. the mojito foam was very vulgar (foams are not so easy as many people think). They served a coulant variation with a nice mint icecream but the coulant was less than amazing (I know they will say it is not a coulant...but if you try it you will understand). we didnt try main dishes because we had little time and we needed to leave soon but looking at the beginners we tried and the dessert we had for this price I can easily judge. This is a good restaurant but yoy know my point is quality to price ratio and in this case it is a fail. Dont recommend it to families nor friends nor gastronomers or foodies. I reccomend it for bussines neal ir you are arround (its probably the only restaurant of this service level in the area). don recommend to travel nore than 20 km to try it. People there are nice and very professional and for this I give it normal rating. I cannot say it is very good just becaue of the qualitt price ratio and the fact they bent some amazing trational food that doesnt need to be changed. Hope I helped with this review.

Set in the beautiful village of Arties, this was an excellent find.

We had a large bedroom on the third floor, with garden and mountain views. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was excellent.
The furniture in this place was stunning, and had obviously been collected over many years. The lounge area was simply beautiful. It appealed to us anyway.
The breakfasts were the best we had anywhere all holiday. The presentation was superb.
We had a meal in their restaurant which again was brilliant, with outstanding service.

We shall return.

This is now the 3rd time we have eaten at Casa Irene while skiing in nearby Baqueira. The service is excellent and the quality of food is amazing. The mushroom soup is probably the best I've ever had! Also, the chicken stuffed with goose foie was surprisingly light and so tasty. They prepared a "special" steak for our son who said it was the best he had ever eaten. It was so tender, you barely needed a knife.
Excellent on all levels and we will definitely return for a 4th visit!

Although we've skied in Baqueira 6-7 times, we've only recently discussed the wonderful little village of Arties which is about 6km down the mountain from the ski area. It is an absolutely wonderful, traditional little spanish village which is absolutely rammed with great tapas bars, restaurants and even some nice cocktail bars.

We stayed in Casa Irene for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel. The staff, particularly on the front desk, were always very welcoming. The rooms are large and comfortable with modern bathrooms.

The hotel restaurant was excellent and has a broad menu and is good value for hotel guests, at EUR33 a head. A word of warning though, the portions are large so avoid visiting the tempting tapas bars earlier in the evening unless you have a late table.

Breakfast was pretty good, with a wide selection of meats, cheese, fruit, pastries, yogurts etc although nothing hot (but as we were always still full from tapas etc the night before, not a problem).

If you don't want to drive up to the skiing, the hotel offers a mini-bus service up to the Baqueira ski area each morning between 8:30-10:30 / 14:30-16:30. You do need to reserve your slot at reception the night before though. On Saturday mornings / school holidays there can be traffic jams on the 6km route up to resort so best to head to the lifts early on those days.

We absolutely loved both Casa Irene and the village of Arties. We'll be staying here for all our future Baqueira ski trips.
