The manager and waiter were snobbish. The restaurant was near empty for the 2+ hours when we were there but they refused to give us an open terrace table and asked us to sit near a corner at the back. Waiter served other tables and...More

Went for their barbecue buffet night, sitting on the outside terrace, very nice in the summer. For meat, I would have expected a little bit better with marinated meat, nicer piece of beef, but overall it was very good.

The Opera is still a nice place, but quality has been going down lately. We had a family event at the famous Sunday Brunch. The restaurant was fully booked and the service was ok. The room is beautiful with a marvelous ceiling. Yet the brunch...More

Description
Chill out and relax on one of the dark-coloured upholstered chairs or on one of the white high chairs. Sip a cocktail such as a mojito, a Milky Way or a ginger gin - or go for a whiskey or glass of fine wine. After dining in one of the restaurants, business people and the trendy in-crowd like to head off to the bar to round off the evening. Look out for white illuminated bird which is behind the long bar. The staff are friendly and professional and offer service with a smile.
