Named after Chef Francisco’s mother, Ophelia will specialize in authentic Mexican cuisine prepared with a refined, elevated approach.

“Given my strong connection to Mexican cuisine, we saw an opportunity to take advantage of my knowledge and passion and do something truly unique here in Olympic Village,” Higareda explains. “My mother inspired my love of cooking and it will be a true honour to return to my roots and pay homage to her and my country at Ophelia this spring.”

Ophelia will also offer a fully licenced bar serving handcrafted cocktails made with premium tequilas and mezcals, along with local and imported craft beers, and New- and Old-World wines.

    What an amazing place (3rd visit) . I was celebrating my birthday with a small group of friends on the patio. The server Tatiana couldn't have been better. Such patience (some of us moved around and made it confusing for her) and always had a smile on. The Happy happy food and drink are spot on. Great choices and the prices are just right! thank you to the entire staff (front and back) who made our celebration a success.

    Great food and service; nice wine and drinks. Some vegan and vegetarian options but not too much, especially if you do not eat fish. Server was attentive. A higher end experience (not cheap eats) but not overly expensive given the quality of the food and service. A fun atmosphere and lively place.

    Fantastic experience! Celebrated Mother’s Day and ordered the volcanes de arracherra, mocaljete, ling cod, and pulpo en mole blanco. Food was amazing, perfect for sharing/family style, and Guava margaritas were *chef’s kiss*. Would highly recommend.

    The food was ok. It seems like they use too much grease. Heavy. The temperature was too hot, we were sweating. Mezcal flight is $32 and it’s not even from Oaxaca, so that was a boo boo. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enjoyable. I love Ophelia, but they need to stay on top of the details and food. Thanks.

    It has good service and is a nice place. The food, though, needs a lot of work. They have some great items on the menu, like the tuna tostadas, but not everything is up to par. They don't meet the expectations. Hopefully, they'll figure it out soon since the staff and the place are great.

    Once again Ophelia knocks it out of the park. I don't normally do a second review, even for my favourite spots, but the food forces my hand. If you haven't tried the bone marrow tacos, get on it. You also might want the chicken enchilada stack. Those who know me understand that I don't lie about food. Money, sex, but NEVER food. Eat here.

    We had dinner for 5, and the food was excellent. Every entree and appetizer was wonderful. We mostly shared everything, so we could all taste a lot of items, and none of us were disappointed. The service was also excellent, friendly, and relaxed, without being overly intrusive. The decor is really great, too, contributing to an ambiance of comfort and ease. We will be coming back.

    We came here for a dinner with friends and it was so lovely! The vibe is super eclectic, the service is really friendly and the food is really flavourful. We particularly enjoyed the bone marrow tacos and the ling cod tacos. The cantarito de mateo cocktail complimented the meal nicely and tres leches cake finished everything off with a nice delicate sweetness.

    Our server was wonderful. Great staff. Truly wasn’t impressed with the food - over-salted, lacking in actual spice, and overpriced. The Elote didn’t even have Tajin on it - it was cold and bland. The ribeye was really fatty, chewy, cold and not at all worth $74.00. The garlic was underdone and the potatos were also bland. Plenty of other spots serving great Mexican food. Disappointed!

    Beautiful interior, good food, but a bit loud. Really wish they would get rid of the TVs playing sports— it doesn’t fit the ambiance or price point, and there are SO MANY sports bars in the neighborhood already.
