Hotel Empordà

Av. Salvador Dalí i Domènech 170, Apt. Correus, 32, Figueres, Catalonia, 17600, Spain

Just 1½ km (1 mile) north of town, this hotel houses the elegant restaurant run by Jaume Subirós that's been hailed as the birthplace of modern Catalan cuisine and has become a beacon for gourmands. Try the terrina calenta de lluerna a l'oli de cacauet (hot pot of gurnard fish in peanut oil) or, if it's winter, llebre a la Royal (boned hare cooked in red wine). Guest rooms have a modern, comfortable ambience, with parquet floors and sparkling bathrooms. The "Figueres" rooms overlook the hotel garden, with a view of the town. The hotel terrace is a prime spot to sit and enjoy a drink before dinner.
