When you enter Ópalo Gastropub, the first thing that might surprise you is the variety of their menu. On one hand, they serve all the traditional Spanish plates, such as local cheeses and meats, tortilla and croquetas, all elaborated with their own personal twist.
On the other hand, their brunch has a heavy American influence, offering plates such as chicken and waffles, pancakes, and all different kinds of egg dishes. You can either order the plates a la carta or splurge for the “bottomless mimosa” brunch special, in which for 24 euros you get a first plate, a side plate, a coffee, dessert, and of course, all the mimosas you would like in an hour and half’s time. If you were worried about leaving hungry, your worries have just been resolved.
The upstairs section is perfect for trying some of their craft beers at the bar or grabbing some tapas and chatting; meanwhile, the downstairs is cozy and perfect for a longer sit-down meal. They also have a bilingual and incredibly kind staff. Our waitress was Portuguese, while the head chef bringing out the plates is a Texas native. It’s an interesting mix that results in delicious food and a great atmosphere.
