Wow I don’t usually comment on casual dinning places we go to because we eat out nearly everyday but we were cruising by after a Costco run and went in very hungry. Hummus was okay but normal for PV (even the Costco Hummus is just...okay here which is weird). We had chicken and beef/lamb gyros. I have not had that good of gyro 🥙 meat in A LONG time. It was better than many places IN Greece that I have been to. What are the odds? Had to say something here. Try it and let me know! Simply amazing!!More

Every trip to Vallarta, we find ourselves traveling a little of center of things and going to Opa. We have tried many things on their menu, but most frequently, one of us almost always has the Gyro and baba ganoush with fresh pita and if...you are an Ouzo lover, they serve a very good Ouzo. It is small restaurant on the street level (not to be confused with unrelated greek restaurant next door). The service at times when full can be a little slow...but it is NEVER a problem to obtain assistance or another drink while waiting.More

I read some reviews about bland or "not what they expected" but that couldn't be farther from the truth. Having ate food in Greece, I can tell you this is the closest to the real thing that you can get. The meat Dolmas were some...of the best Ive ever eaten. The tzatziki, Baba Ganoush and pita were as authentic as you can get.More

My husband and I dropped in for a late supper and were greeted warmly by our server. She was gracious with our lack of Spanish, and together we figured out our order without a hitch. Then we were wowed by the food. We were offered...a taste of olive tapenade to start (yum!), and then shared the octopus salad, which was amazing. The seafood was still tender and the salad was fresh and flavourful. When our entrees arrived, we found out that this chef knows how to cook meat. We both had the leg of lamb; the meat was fall-off-the-bone tender and oh so delicious...it was hard not to inhale it. Side dishes (rice, potatoes, tzatziki and a wonderful jus) were perfect accompaniments. We will be back time and time again. Great food, friendly service, and the prices were easy on the wallet. Can't wait to try more dishes!More

We have eaten at three different Greek restaurants and this is our favorite. We ate there 4 times while we were in Puerto Vallarta and are really looking forward to next year so we can eat there several times.

This spot has high ratings so I expected it to be super great but was disappointed. The babaganush was bland, pita was flavorless and the the gyro was tiny. I did really like the greek salad however if you hope for actual feta be prepared...to be be disappointed. It wasn't terrible, like I still ate it, I just wouldn't order from here again. Maybe there are better items on the menu?More

Very good traditional Greek food. Everything was very good and enjoyable. Don't let the small size and few tables mislead you. We really appreciated the personal and caring experience. They were very busy preparing carry-out orders in these COVID times and that speaks highly of...their food quality. However, that activity did not negatively effect their attention to in house service and quality preparation. We will visit there again.More
