Restaurant Empòrium, between the sea and the mountains
A restaurant with Michelin Star inside a gastronomic hotel ***
The Empòrium restaurant, located in the homonymous gastronomic hotel ***, reflects the work of Jordà family delivered by hand and soul in the tourism world since 1965. At the front, you will find the twin brothers Màrius and Joan Jordà, who surprisingly, and well supported by their father Salvador Jordà, take turns cyclically in front of the kitchen and the dining room.
In the restaurant you will enjoy a current sea and mountaine cuisine without renouncing to current touches, which emphasize the Empordà flavours, always based on proximity products. So, we try to relate all the elements around us to make possible our stationary and Alt Empordà countryside cuisine; moderate but essential; developed and modest but genuine; a cuisine which must be the reflex of our philosophy, opening to everybody our local univers. The nature splendour. Our landscape abundance.
Our restaurant has an excellent selection of wines by our sommeliers which are collected in a wine list work of American artist Ralph Bernabei which is visual poetry reflecting in the environment that gives rise to our wines.
In our restaurant we have a reserved room with a maximum capacity of 16 people to be able to enjoy our cooking in a spacious, private, intimate and diaphanous space.
