Dined on April 22, 2016

I have been to your establishment a few times but this time my thirteen-year-old daughter wanted to come to her birthday to celebrate we had a nice time it was a great fun night everything was good except for when it came time for me to serve the cupcakes for my daughter's birthday there was some service fee That was supposed to be charged or the 15 people in my party which she the waiter explained as some liability fee which I found absolutely ridiculous especially having people dancing all over tables kids and everyone napkins all over the floor where you can fall so this made absolutely no sense I had a cake and receive from Publix so many serving my guest cupcakes how that affected you all made absolutely no sense so they are making me feel right what a joke this place is but other than that we had a good time

Great food, Great Ambiance. Customer dancing around the restaurant and on tables. Service staff got everyone who dined involved in some way. All staff and customer seemed genuinely happy with the whole concept. The way a Greek Taverna should be. I recommend.

Central location with nice outdoor seating

Dined on April 5, 2016

Coming here on a nice day for a business lunch proved to be good since it was not noisy at all, the weather was good and the food was ok. Service was very good and overall it is not a bad place for Orlando Greek food. Nothing like the real thing or even Tarpon Springs, Florida.

Bachelorette Party

We went to Taverna Opa for my cousin's bachelorette party. It was the PERFECT choice for this occasion. They encourage getting up on the tables and dancing the night away. On the plus side, the food is great too!

Good for Florida

Dined on March 4, 2016

I am going to start by saying that I am a foodie and take food very seriously. This place has a festive atmosphere and the dancers are nice, but not really my thing. The food is decent Mediterranean food, but nothing to write home about. if you're a foodie, there are better places in the area. If you want a nice atmosphere and predictably decent food, this is a good pick.

Worst Service Ever

vip
Dined on March 1, 2016

Every single dish that came out of the kitchen....EVERY one...came to our table...and we would say, "Nope...not us," and some other table would flag the server over. One time-I totally get it....but every dish...come on. Also, the server could not open our bottle of wine...this is of course after he brought the wrong bottle and wrong drinks to our table. Come on...no matter how yummy your hummus is-the service was atrocious and I would not go back.

Dined on February 27, 2016

Overall, the atmosphere was upbeat & great with the music & entertainment. Saganaki & humus very good. Beef tenderloin kebabs were tough & definitely wasn't as expected. Artichoke chicken was very good. My salad came after the entree. Consequently, we didn't eat it and the waitress did not offer to remove it from our bill!! We will probably choose another Greek restaurant next time.

Dined on February 21, 2016

Well I took my girlfriends out for my friends bachelorette party. I am her maid of honor and we have all been before. We were seated in the table by the very back room. We felt very alone and forgotten. Our table was too small to even get on. Plus even if we tried the roof was so low on one side we would have to bend over. Someone else was having their bachelorette party in one of the big tables towards the middle. The waiter brought out a bottle of blue liquor. Stood on the table and poured everyone a free shot. When my girlfriend had brought up to our waiter that it was her bachelorette party he seemed confused so she told him we wanted shots like the other table! He brought us shots but charged us for them. Well we ended up at the same comedy show as the bride to be at the other table and she said that none of her group got charged for their shots. And they had about 3 rounds each.

Depends on what you want!

Dined on February 13, 2016

This is a great spot if you want to walk right into the party. Our reservation was at 8pm, but it felt by the way the music was playing (so loud that we could not hear each other without screaming) that it was already midnight. We were hoping to go in, have good conversations, and as the night progressed we expected the music to get louder and the guests to get more rowdy. But it was rowdy from the get-go. So, if you've gone pre-gaming and are feeling ready to party this is the place for you! Definitely great atmosphere... BUT if you're looking to start your night here and have decent conversations with your friends, then I would say don't start here. With this being said, the food was decent, the service was as good as it could be due to the loud noise and the entertainment was good with the dancers on the tables, etc. Everyone around seemed to be having a great time, but then again they must have been ready to party (or had a few drinks already)

Burnt appetizers, extremely LOUD.

Dined on February 11, 2016

It has a fun atmosphere and plenty of energy (although a bit gimmicky if you are looking for more traditional Greek food.) Given it is in the middle of the convention center area, I expected it to be appropriate for a business dinner. It is not. VERY LOUD music that they won't turn down and average food. Our saganaki was scorched and my colleague's lamb was tough to the point of being inedible. The belly dancer, patrons doing shots and dancing on the tables, and the napkins raining down from the ceiling were kinda fun but not the ambiance we were after. More suitable to people looking for a rowdy night out.
