I travel to Orlando often and have been to a number of restaurants in this complex, and each of the restaurants here has something different to offer. The place is loud and the people are having a great time. if you want a fun place to go where you sometimes have trouble hearing what people in your party are saying, but everybody is having a great time and smiling this is the place. If you want to be able to have dinner conversations this is not the place. If you are interested in having a blast and being treated very well by the wait staff this is the place. If you want fine dining this is not the place.

The fun is all in the restaurant and make sure you get a seat close to one of the aisles. The belly dancers go throughout the restaurant but go along the aisles for the most part so if you want more fun and higher energy sit along the aisle. This is a place I would return to.

This is my 2nd time eating here. The 1st time was for lunch & it was great. This time we came for dinner & the server never refilled our beverages, she had too many tables & the food was not seasoned well. The falafels were too soft inside & my vegetables were less than room temperature. Perhaps Saturday nite isn’t the best time to dine. I was a bit disappointed. This is my main complaint about dining in Orlando...it’s so inconsistent.

I absolutely loved dining at Tavern Opa for my birthday. All of my friends and family had a great time dancing on tables and enjoying the delicious food. The menu is a little on the pricier side, but it was well worth every second!

My friend chose Taverna Opa to celebrate her 40th birthday, and I made the reservation. We had a fabulous time, the food was delicious and the belly dancers and dancing on the table made the evening fun and entertaining. I will say it is very loud in the restaurant once the dancers get started. I would recommend this for a group for sure.

When we walked in the door it was crazy loud and hot. I thought belly dancers would be a cool cultural experience but it was trashy and I felt very uncomfortable bringing my kids there. Dancers were on tables, the place was trashed with napkins and the music was not appropriate at all for dinner hour. We asked to sit outside instead and it took 45 minutes to even get service. Wouldn’t recommend.

We came at 8:15 for a 8:30 reservation and were sat after 9:00 pm. The tables are packed so close together that we had to keep standing up all night to allow the customers on the next table to get in and out (I can't even imagine what would happen in case of an emergency situation). Server was very nice and tried to do her best despite having too many sections to cover. Food was fair but way overpriced. Ambiance was very loud and crowded, can't keep any conversation. Music was anything but greek. The bill included the tip (we were a party of 4). To validate the parking they want you to go to a different part of the mall. We won't ever go back again and wouldn't recommend this place to anybody.

Food was great! Visited the restaurant in the past and thought the loud music and dancing would start after dinner rush. Did not realize that the loud music and belly dancer started so early in the evening which was before 7pm. Would not visit to have a family dinner.

This place is fantastic! We recently went with a group of 20 friends visiting us from out of state with their teenagers. This place was perfect for EVERYONE! The tmosphere, food and service were excellent. We ate, we talked, we sang, we danced and most importantly, we made wonderful memories. Everyone left agreeing that we MUST make it a part of their annual visit! Thank you, Taverna OPA!

The food was so good. Chicken kabob and lamb tenderlion were perfect. We googled this place for my husband‘s birthday while in town. It was a great experience the food was so delicious. It had great music, dancing, great people we returned again for the second day. This is such a lively and happening place. We will return again when we visit Orlando.

Everything from the atmosphere to the food and the service was absolutely great! We ordered the saganaki appetizer and it did not disappoint, it was absolutely delicious! We also had the scallops and slow roasted lamb which were both cooked to perfection and delicious! The belly dancer was fun to watch and she interacted with guests...it was a fun night! We will definitely be back!

Had the time of our lives. The entertainment was amazing and so much fun. And the food was absolutely delicious. I had the branzino and it was one of the best I’ve had. My husband had the paella and he felt the same way. Can’t wait to go back to Orlando. This will definitely be our go to restaurant when there.

The food was good - the apps - a cold platter - were very good, and the hummus was deliciously garlicky. The lemon chicken and the pork loin were overcooked - too tough and dry. The gyro with chicken was very good. I brought two guests, having been to this restaurant myself several years ago. The volume of the music was much louder than at my last visit, and frankly, my ears were ringing after we left and the next day. It was so ridiculously loud that we had to get our faces right next to one another and shout, and still could not make out all that was being said. I enjoyed the show last time (dancing on the tables, napkins in the air, belly dancing, etc), but it seemed that the show has now taken over, and food and service is secondary to the show. I suggest turning the music down so that the entire experience is more enjoyable.
