The location of this place is excellent, great beach view but unfortunately the service is painfully slow and prices are a bit high...

The only positive point is the location, by the beach but the food is not great and the prices are really high. Tourists trap.

I went to this restaurant with other people for a gathering. I ordered a burger which was cooked on the outside and raw on the inside. (No exaggeration) and the chips were stone cold as if they had been sitting there the whole afternoon. When the waiter took my plate away - he was not interested and did not ask... More

Sit here for the view of the sea, and to catch some sun, but that's all... the food is not with the money and the drink menu is extensive and not great either. The waiters seem very busy for a place thats never all too crowded when we walk by. The girl up front is a bit stand offish and... More

We were passing by and were hungry--typical tourist trap motivation and Opium is a tourist trap. We chose the lunch menu--portions are small, often already cold, the dessert smelled funny. Not recommended.

Myself and 9 other ladies had the most amazing meal here for the last night of my hen party. Some ordered the Angus steak, some the beef tenderloin, others the paella, some the seafood platter and I had the lobster rice. All the dishes looked amazing and everybody said how exquisite the food tasted. My lobster rice was phenomenal and... More

Have been coming to Opium regularly for about 5 years and always loved it. But won't be returning after this visit, Very unfriendly reception and staff all round (used to be the opposite). Waited 35 mins for a drink then another 30 mins for food much of which was not as ordered and cold. Not a hint of an apology.... More

We went to this club late after a meal out. It costs EURO 10 to get in and as typical with a club the drinks are quite expensive. Anyway, we had a good time. DJ plays the usual dance grooves and there's an outside smoking area, which is good to go to if you want to chat.

Fabulous 3 course set menu lunch for two 14€ per person. Food came out looking like a fine dining plate. The presentation was way above expectation and the taste was even better! Jacopo and the team were attentive and friendly. And all this whilst overlooking the beach. I would HIGHLY recommend!

Staying in Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica

Neighbourhood Profile
Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica. Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local fish to the various restaurants running along the marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs which practically lie on the beach itself.
