We went to Cafe Opera early afternoon for a coffee. We had never been before but as it was very busy we thought it must be good. We weren´t really hungry but when we saw the meals coming out we couldn´t resist. My husband had the lobster bisque special, which was lovely, although at 8.75€ we thought it would have... More

It consisted of two fried eggs, Frankfurter style sausages, bacon, a roll, a mixed selection of fruit, freshly squeezed orange juice and tea or coffee. Service was poor the first time and excellent the second time. On our first visit the waitress seemed distracted... More

Ate very well every time I was here. Great breakfast, superb lunch. Waiting staff spoke multiple languages and friendly. Food is very good, great portions and worth every cent. I would recommend reservering a table because the place is packed most of the time.

When in Spain it is not always easy to find a place that is not serving pizza's and paella, but here you have a place that serves great dishes, beautifully garnished and all with fresh ingredients. Great sandwiches with fresh meat (fillet Americain from veal, excellent), smoked salmon, garnished with fresh fruit. Real fresh orange juice. A selection of good... More

This was our first visit and all we can say is it's a quality establishment with first class produce and first class service. It won't be our last visit that's for sure.
