“Beautiful Building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

The Old Opera is a beautiful building especially the restaurant and the terrace must be viewed. Dissapointing are the individual theatres - they are in the style of the 70's and is pretty boring

“Beautiful on the Outside”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

We enjoyed viewing this building from the outside and taking a couple of photos. However, we were unable to go inside any further than the lobby. There was a security guard stationed at the entrance to the theatre preventing tourists from even looking inside. There are a number of interesting cafes and restaurants surrounding the square. However, we continued on to "Fress Gass", which is only a few minutes walk and it provided more options for eating and drinking.
