Opera Catedral: a festive atmosphere in a designer setting

a must

Renowned for the consistency of its cuisine, this restaurant is an institution for business lunches, or dinners with friends.

You can have lunch or dinner on the terrace of this designer brasserie, but the regulars prefer the first floor.

The menu, written in French, offers typical French specialities that have been slightly revisited. Sole is ‘meunière' style and the ‘boeuf en croute' opts for excellence while the wagyu meat is flawless. The highly refined Kobe beef is served complete with a charlotte of asparagus and mushrooms. Other suggestions that are worth trying are the lamb stew and risotto with seafood. Impressive for the complexity of its choice, the restaurant's wine cellar holds its own, navigating between grands crus and small labels with promising futures, about which the sommelier is happy to advise.

On the second floor, the atmosphere is very relaxed with a live music programme of small, easy-listening concerts during dinner.
