“Mediocre Service and Meal”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

We went to the Opera Cafe after failing to secure a table at a couple of places recommended by our guidebook. We were traveling with a friend in the wine business, who ordered a wine from the menu, and the waiter, brought a different wine to the table, opened it, and then poured, without telling us that he had switched the wine. Very poor form! The food was just ok -- nothing special. My recommendation is that you make a reservation at one of the better places in town, and don't get stuck like we did eating an overpriced meal at a subpar place.

“Excellent lunch at afforable price.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014 via mobile

We looked for a restaurant to have lunch after a walking tour through the village. This restaurant caught my wife's eye! It may be decorated richly in a Opera style inside but our experience was that it was very friendly with good service. The duck confit was excellent and I can recommend this restaurant for an great meal at reasonable prices. The wine list had a good choice of wine by the glass.

We dined here in May,2014 and were pleased with the dinner here. We each had duck confit and was very good. The food was well presented, the service seemed a little slow, but we were able to sit and relax with a glass of wine and enjoy the evening. The wait staff was friendly and the prices, although not cheap, were fair for the area. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a nice meal and comfortable surroundings.

“Great meal at a fair price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

This restaurant was recommended by a local vendor. We both had the plat du jour (confit du canard with salad and ratatouille) and a glass of Roger Sablon Les Olivets for just over €50 total.

Had the most amazing experience here! Started with the foi gras (good!) and had 2 helpings of the most delicious duck confit that has ever crossed my lips! The tiramisu should not be missed as well!
