This fabulous cafe was recommended to us as we wandered along the beach front at Altea this afternoon and what a find. The cafe has a tasteful, sophisticated air about it from a bygone era and was filling up with happy clients by lunch time with quite a few reservations. Lovely waitresses who were attentive but not imposing guided us... More

Visiting friends who have a house in the Jalon valley. We were meeting up with two others who didn't know we were coming. Had a brilliant lunch here. Fabulous OTT salads, each named after a classical composer. You feel healthy as well as full after eating and the price is very cheap! The staff are amazing, always friendly, smiling, helpful...

Went here today for lunch and was not disappointed. Great place right on the seafront with views along the coast. As there were five of us, we booked and it's a good job too. The place is very busy, with people coming in all the time. The service is good with the staff happy to talk and recommend the daily... More

We took the ferry from Calpe to Altea. This little restaurant was in view when we came off the wharf and was the only place with people in it. For good reason. The food was just superb. The salad was fresh and so full of interesting and tasty bits. The special was large sea scallops (5) seared to a perfection,... More

Came here with two of my friends that absolutely rave about this place. Beautifully situated on the beach front with lovely views. Salads did look amazing although I chose to have the bolognese which was great, both my friends had a salad and they were huge! Staff were very friendly and could talk English which was a great help :)... More

We did not book for a change. Restaurant was very busy but they fitted us in. Had a nice heater next to our table (could have sat inside but better atmosphere outside and under cover). Place was buzzing, lovely salads on offer as well as a hot menu. They are known for their salads and there are a lot to... More

Situated along the main sea frontage Opera is consistently reliable and excellent value for money. Try the Chicken Livers or the Steak Tartare for a great lunchtime treat. Friendly staff, good service and great views.
