El Motel, as the Hotel Empordà de Figueras is commonly known, is an authentic reference point for ampurdanese gastronomy. The history behinds its kitchens is a must to enable anyone to understand the vitality and success of modern Catalan cuisine. Big names such as Salvador Dalí, Josep Pla or Ferran Adrià have eaten there.
Nowadays, el Motel combines its sixties soul with its exquisite decor and service. A place and a way of doing things that is unfortunately in danger of extinction.
