Restaurant Empòrium, between the sea and the mountains

A restaurant with Michelin Star and Repsol Sun inside a gastronomic hotel ***

Empòrium Restaurant, located at the homonymous 3-star gastronomic hotel, reflects the hard work of the Jordà family, devoted to the catering industry since 1965. The restaurant is led by the Jordà twins, Màrius and Joan, who are in charge of the kitchen and the dining room taking turns periodically in a surprising way, with the support of their father, Salvador Jordà. 

We offer two menus to enjoy our sea and mountain cuisine without sacrificing current touches, where the Empordà flavors stand out, always based on local and sustainable products.

In this way we try to relate all the elements that surround us to make possible a seasonal cuisine and the natural landscape of the Alt Empordà; sober but essential; evolutionary and humble but authentic. A cuisine that must be a reflection of our philosophy, opening our local universe to everyone.

The splendor of nature; the fullness of our land; the evolution of tradition.


In the restaurant there is also a private room with a seating capacity of 12 for those who want to enjoy our cuisine in a big, open, quiet, and private space.
