This was recommended by a friend so we decided to go for lunch. There was so much choice and the salads were fantastic and very good value for money. The staff were very friendly. Will return next time we visit Altea

This place once was good and food delicious, but nowadays very low quality and tasteless dishes. The friendly staff can't help it, but they should quickly change their kitchen staff

Have eaten here a few times now and always enjoyed the food and ambience,the weather was awful on the day we were there so maybe a little deflated with all water running around the place but that had nothing to do with the restaurant.Will be back again before the end of the holiday.

Our friends brought us to Cafe Opera on the beachfront in Altea today. They had raved about this small cafe and warned we might not be able to get a table at the prime time of 1:30, but we lucked out and there was a four top available, in the sunshine on a splendid early February day. Opera features a... More

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
