A place, a history.

The Restaurant at Hotel Empordà in Figueres. 

A story that inspires... Since 1961

A man with experience in the international cuisine of the Portbou resort had decided to set up a Catalan cuisine establishment in Figueres, in a roadside motel, on the national road that was the gateway for international tourism to the Costa Brava in 1961.  "Book Històries del Motel - Miquel Berga edició Maig 2011
