  • Mockingly called the Gas Station by the locals, the Opera House is best seen from the bankside next to the Queen's residence. The Opera House is beautifully lit in the night and is well worth a visit.  more »
  • Visited to experience the opera house and left having seen the best staging of Carmen ever. The choreography was spectacular! In the house itself, there is no bad seat. Excellent sound and view...  more »

  • Opera Carmen - Absolutely fantastic! For all opera lovers - You must go and experience Carmencita and the sceneography which consist only by a big stair...The dancers are amazing and the singers outstanding. An opera for the ears and the eyes 🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩
  • Dinner was weak but the building, views, music, service and experience easily made up for it. We came with a conference group and all the normal problems of logistics applied, like, getting 200 plates of food out all at once was obviously challenging. But they did it, and the woman who was vegetarian got the right meal and was discretely consulted throughout the meal. Food: the jammy desert was mediocre at best, and my chicken was dry, the appetizer was subpar too, it was smoked cod and it was too smoky. Overall, the food gets 2/5, but I enjoyed myself.
