Hotel Empordà

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

Fodor’s Expert Review

Just 1½ km (1 mile) north of town, this hotel houses the elegant restaurant run by Jaume Subirós that has been hailed as the birthplace of modern Catalan cuisine and has become a beacon for gourmands. Try the cordero lechal al romero, cebollitas, pera, boniato (suckling lamb with rosemary, onion, pear, sweet potato) or if in season, espárragos de Riumors, al perfume de trufa blanca y pecorino (asparagus from Riumors, with white truffle parfum and pecorino). 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.
