I enjoyed the burger I had, but as this was my only night in Tampa I was dissapointed with how empty the entire Channelside area was. The restaurant was very nice and the staff were helpful and attentive.

I really enjoyed my visit to Taverna Opa. I went for lunch while at a conference in Tampa. I sat inside, although outside appeared to be a nice option as well. Even being inside, the ample windows provided a nice view of the bay that enhanced the experience. I had a "bean" burger as a vegetarian option and thought it... More

We went to eat lunch at Taverna Opa this Sunday, July 14, but found that the restaurant is now called "Fusion at Flambe". The menu looked decent, so we decided to stay. Bad decision. There was one server trying to cover the entire restaurant plus the patio. She was running ragged. She dropped off the food then took off the... More

Our overall comment is that the food was tasty, but it looked simply awful on the plate. Service was slow. We would not return.

After just visiting the aquairum in Tampa we had lunch at Opa's. We were there around 2:00pm and the place was almost empty. The food we received was a large portion and cooked perfectly. No complaints here.

This place is advertised as a hookah lounge, but we were informed they hadn't been used in weeks. We said, fine, let me have a draft beer. "Sorry, we're out of Co2." Seriously?!? The food was ok, flaming cheese was good, the muscles were small and gross. After all that, food was overpriced, but I guess that was to be... More

Right on the water, this place is a good little place for lunch. Even though they were out of hummus, which was kind of odd, the Gyros were good and so was the Eggplant spread. The Pita bread seemed to be home made fresh to order and was absolutley fantastic.
