Is there anywhere good to eat in Figueres?

We are taking a day trip/tour from Barcelona to see the Dali Museum. The tour operator does not include lunch, but on the website says that there are "many places to chose from".
Does anyone have any specific suggestions ( I searched the board and came up with nothing).
The restaurant of Hotel Empurda http://www.hotelemporda.com/ is probably the best in town. Otherwise restaurant Duran http://www.hotelduran.com/ in the town centre used to be tops, but I have not been for a while. Mas Pau is very good (Michelin star), but a long way (4km) out of town http://www.maspau.com/
If you are looking for somewhere which isn't necessarily the best in town or Michelin starred, then this link may help. It may not have come up in your search as it is a few years old now. Beware, I don't want to raise your expectations, only for you to have them dashed, but I have a feeling that it may have closed down now - we tried to go back on two occasions and they were closed. I think the second reply on this thread is referring to the same place, but I can't be sure.
If you find this place open, or anywhere else good for lunch, please do report back, we would love to know of somewhere else to eat, as we sometimes pass through on our way to the airport at Girona.
This won't help the original poster, but if anyone wants a place near Figueres, try Mas Pau. Google it. Stay overnight and have dinner, you will not regret it. The next morning drive up to Besalu. A perfect day and night out of Barcelona.
Don't have a food rec. for you as we ate at one of the lousy restaurants in the square, near
the Dali Museum....but DO NOT MISS the Dali Jewelry museum, next door to the big museum
We were absolutely goggle-eyed when we exited. Most gorgeous jewelry ever. The picnic
idea is delightful and wish we had thought of that!
