Restaurant Empòrium, between the sea and the mountains
A restaurant with Michelin Star 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.
In the restaurant you will be able to enjoy a modern sea and mountain influenced cuisine not short of contemporary touches, which accentuate the flavours of the Empordà region, and local produce is always the basis of our cuisine. This is how we try to integrate all the products that surround us in order to create a seasonal cuisine rooted in the natural landscape of Alt Empordà: a cuisine that strives for simplicity without losing its essence, that is humble and open to evolution, but genuine. It needs to be the reflection of our philosophy, opening our local universe to everyone. The splendour of nature. The richness of our land.
Our restaurant features a wide range of wines selected by our sommeliers. They are included on a wine list designed by the American artist Ralph Bernabei, which depicts the environment where our wines originate in the form of visual poetry.
In the restaurant there is also a private room with a seating capacity of 20 for those who want to enjoy our cuisine in a big, open, quiet, and private space.
