Good Food, Fun Atmosphere

We stopped in Oxford, MS for one night with our two children (ages 6 and 9). I was surprised at the number of really nice restaurants in Oxford.

College food place. Lots of good selections. Service is college type. A little loud, but the food is priced right and served quick. Will go back as the food was well worth the money.

Have been to Volta Taverna many times. Easy parking, good service and great Greek food with pizza on a pita thrown in. This time we started with fallafel balls and Janice had a Walnuts and Goat Cheese Salad while I had a bowl of Spicy Chicken Stew as my main. The Stew disappeared from Volta's menu, for a while, but... More

Thank you for your great review. The chicken stew is also one of my favorites. We will probably be bringing back the potato chowder when it cools off in October. We've been getting requests for that already. Thank you for being one of Volta's best customers and for giving us great reviews! More

Love the lamb and beef gyro, the margarita specials (such a great value), and the hotty toddy balls! We also like the salads.

Thank you for your review. I love to hear that we are one of Oxford's favorite restaurants! Our homemade margaritas have made quite a splash around town, but be sure to try our new Frozen Mojito. It's delicious! More

We had a great meal tonight before church. Capris salad and pimento with pita bread. Great wraps. Worth it for sure. Left overs for late night snack.

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. The hummus and spicy shrimp wrap are great choices! We've been lucky enough to have beautiful weather lately, so dining on the deck has been a delight. Please dine with us again soon! Thank you! More

Off the square with lots of parking. Great food. Love the Gyro Salad and the Hummus. Margaritas are a specialty. Staff is always attentive and right there if you need anything. I highly recommend Votla for a great lunch or dinner. Their patio is nice and pet friendly.
