    Food was outstanding and service was great! The noise was awful and it was more like a nightclub than a restaurant. We could barely hear our selves speak and our children were miserable. However great the food was, we could not even stay long enough to enjoy our dessert, which we took to go. They really need to tone down the music to a more comfortable level!

    For years my wife and I have been wanting to try a Greek food restaurant. We found Taverna Opa's ad in a magazine and we knew we just had to go. It was everything we had expected and way more. Lets face it, ambiance, service, and location are all important factors, but the food is hands down tops in making a decision weather to return to any given restaurant. The food at Taverna Opa was exquisite. It was as though we were transported to Greece and nona herself was hand making everything we ate. It had a homemade feel and taste, I think it will be hard to beat. My wife and I will most definitely return many more times.

    This was a return trip with our family. We went a 30 min before the entertainment started; worked out great on timing. We miss good ethnic food in our small town, so we went off diet and treated ourselves. To start, taramasolata (one of the best we've had with great flavor and texture) and saganaki. Only wish they would serve crusty bread instead of pita, but Florida is not known for crusty Italian or French breads. I had very nice lamb chops and my wife was very happy with the spanakopita. She also enjoyed the retsina wine, an aquired taste IMHO. The kids stuck with gyros & souvlaki. Desert was galatabourro, baklava & Greek coffee. The bill added up, but we went away very satisfied, especially since it included the belly dancer.

    Staying at Hyatt, easy walking distance, good food, amazing service from our waiter who also danced on tables, corkage fee a bit high. Danced around the restaurant, met the people at the tables next to us, seemed like what you would find in a small family restaurant in Greece but on a bigger scale. A night to remember with a great group of people.

    We enjoyed our dinner. Food was good and ambience was entertaining. Unlike I read online, there eas no $50 charge per person. Looks like a great never for large parties celebrating birthdays etc. good for groups looking to get rowdy! However children were entertained also. Music is loud Greek to Greek techno.

    We were sitting right next to the path for people to walk, which is fine. Then they started dancing and bumping the table, numerous times. It took 45 mins to get our food. Our server was nice and friendly and tried to keep updating us. My entree was less than what I expected for the amount money. Desert was really good, and I might go back just for a slice of cake at the bar. We were there for my boyfriends birthday, and I couldn't talk to him without yelling, other than for a slice of cake at the bar, I won't be dining here again.

    Service was very awkward. Server was quiet and not very attentve. I asked for his opinion between two appetizers, and he told me "these are good". Majority of the staff was watching the World Cup I guess because Greece was playing, and thus, it was difficult to get anyones attention when we needed something. Our calamari was tough and was served without any sauce. A few of our side dishes served with our entrees were cold when served. My parents were in town and I raved about this restaurant to them, and overall, i think we were all dissappointed. We will try again, but I just hope the service is improved next time.

    I understand they are trying to provide an original Greek experience, however they tried to seat us at a table with people standing barefoot on it. The music was loud rap music like a night club so we asked to sit outside. The waiter never brought ketchup after asking 3times and never check on our drinks. The food was good, but the overall experience will prevent me and my husband from returning and/or recommending it to others.

    I would travel again to orlando area only to experience eating here again. Disney etc., would have to take a back seat. It was our son's 21st birthday and the staff was exceptional, the food was amazing, everyone danced on the tables with the encouragement of the belly dancer. Don't miss this restaraunt when you go to orlando. If there's a wait, it's worth it!

    Took my boyfriend here while on vacation, and although at first he felt "outside the box," we both thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a reservation for 30 mins after the belly dancer started, next time I will do it just before she starts, we missed her coming to our table. The food was fantastic, as was the aphrodisiac martini!

    Boy what a disappointment this place turned out to be!! Our service was poor and the food was too. I've never heard of a gyro sandwich having pork meat?? As many others have stated the best part of the meal was the hummus. We went fairly late when there weren't a lot of diners and our waitress just couldn't seem to get anything right. An hour and a half later we were dissatisfied with our meals and service. Please save your time and money. There are a host of better places to choose from in Orlando. Bosphorous for turkish is great. We also ate at Roy's, Tommy Bahamas and Cafe Tu Tu Tango and enjoyed them all. Taverna Opa simply did not make the cut!!
