Obviously Ophira

Dec 28, 2011 No Comments by

I had to meet a client in Estepona at 11a.m . Luckily I found Ophira, open all day for an early breakfast or a quick coffee to lunch through to evening dining, and a great place for a business meeting or just catching up with friends.

Ophira has a very relaxed atmosphere it’s a real home from home. There is always a great mixture of people from a table of ladies taking tea to young trendy people with laptops making use of the free WIFI. The waiters are friendly and Ernesto, the owner, always has a smile on his face.

We order an excellent coffee, and as we talk the time flies while the crows comes in and out around us.  Ophira is a great place to find yourself if you get a little peckish. At around 12 o’clock we ask for  “surtido de montaditos” (open sandwiches) and a couple of cold drinks. My favourite was the Iberian cured ham and fried green pepper and my clients the Brie with strawberry vinaigrette.

As we were leaving Ernesto reminded me of the wine tasting that night where an informal crowd get together to sample some of the finest wines available. And there is a range of other events as well – even an informal language class where you can practice your Spanish.

Ophira has managed to pull off a great trick -a traditional bar-restaurant with a modern twist and great value prices
