Decent Greek food and good service; however, the music in this place was the LOUDEST I’ve ever heard. One had to scream at the table to be heard. My spouse had to use earplugs to keep from damaging her hearing. We will never go back unless the music volume was lowered by 50%.

When we visited the Taverna Opa in Orlando, we expected lovely Greek dinner, and instead we got an amazing dining and entertainment experience. The food was incredibly delicious and authentically Greek. Best Saganaki I’ve had outside of Greece, delectable lamb shank, souvlaki, tzatziki, hummus, Horus tiki salad - everything was stellar. When the belly dancer came out, amidst napkins thrown in the air, we were fascinated and by the end of our stay, we were dancing on the table! Easily one of the best experiences of my life ever! Great work to the staff - Bravo to all!

Authentic Greek food that was very tasty. Definitely worth trying.

Octopus was outstanding, potatoes were good. Chicken was tasty. Lamb dish very solid, a bit dry though but overall recommend it.

Our waitress was slow in dropping by to get our drinks. After ordering, My husband did not get any pita with his roasted lamb platter and asked twice. We were charged for extra tziiki. Overall we feel the food and service has deteriorated since our last visit

We're sorry to see the service was lacking for your visit! We will definitely remind our team to bring the fresh pita bread immediately with that entree. We do charge for sides of our tzatziki sauce, as it is made completely from scratch. We even make the Greek yogurt first! We hope you will continue to visit and have a better experience with us sometime.

Went in for dinner and absolutely LOVED everything!!!! Hummus was fresh and delicious. Grilled octopus was AMAZING! Lamb chops were juicy and tender. The slow roasted lamb was the BEST that I’ve every had. Even the green beans were perfect. I cannot say enough about the good. Service was excellent and dancers made experience fun.

We were looking for something a bit different and fun near the Universal Resorts. Taverna Opa fit the bill perfectly. They offered a wide variety of Greek specialties including fresh seafood. Everything was great - especially the roasted lamb board. Prices were reasonable for the quality. The dancer was a nice surprise and added to the ambiance. The noise level was very high inside however, so if your looking for a quieter atmosphere I would suggest the outdoor seating.

Great place to celebrate a 16th birthday. Food was delicious and the place is a lot of fun with belly dancers and loud music. The music some times was a little too loud and it did take a while to get our drinks, but overall it was a good experience and we would definitely go back.

I expected the noise level to be lower for periods not full blast the entire time. Maybe this has changed but I did not remember it that way. Still fun and the appetizers were good but my chicken kabob was a bit too dry. Very nice server.

The food was authentic, as was the party atmosphere! We saw several large parties inside the restaurant having a great time, and the belly dancing brought everyone to their feet. It's pretty loud everywhere, even outside with music blaring, so just keep that in mind. There aren't really any views outside, just a concrete jungle, and there's very little foot traffic.

We sat at 7pm We didn’t get water until 7:30pm. We were a party of 15. After the waters we waited another 30 minutes to order drinks. After the drinks we waited another 30 minutes for appetizers and then ones it was time to order food some of the guest didn’t get their order. Food and drinks didn’t show. The area wasn’t super busy and the server did not communicate as well or tried to sugar coat. It was my buddies birthday and we made the best out of it but for the money we paid it definitely was not a great experience.

I suppose that, given the pandemic, restaurants take business where ever they can get it. Nonetheless it was still somewhat annoying that we were forced to sit at a metal picnic table that was clearly designed only to sit four people as opposed to our party of six.

It is almost like they did not look at their reservation log and were surprised when we actually showed up. Given that the reservation times were available in every single 15 minute slot prior to our showing up, I do not understand why they would’ve thought not to make accommodations for those few people that actually did make reservations.

That being said the food was a bit oversalted although very tasty. The one bright light was our server, Valentina. She was attentive and very accommodating.

We're sorry to see you were not comfortable with the table provided. These are brand-new outdoor tables we just setup last week, so we do not want our guests to think these are temporary picnic tables. They are meant for our patio seating. Most of the guests we serve are reservations, so we do of course prepare for these. We're glad your experience was redeemed by your server, Valentina, and the enjoyable food. We hope you will consider joining us again.
