I participate in their birthday where you get a free dinner ( 10.00 value) during the month of your birthday. The food is awesome and the prices are excellent. The wait staff is knowledgeable and willing to help with suggestions and recommendations to save you money. Best Greek food around by far.

We stopped for pizza after a movie as we had heard about this restaurant for a long time. The stuffed grape leaves appetizer was delicious until a fly landed in the lemon sauce. Then, while we waited for our pizza, we watched the flies crawling on the window, flitting about our glasses, and walking on the bread. It was most... More

If you like Greek food, this is the place for you. The atmosphere is amazing and you'll feel like you're back in Santorini!! If you've never experienced Greek food, this is a perfect place to take the leap. The grape leaves are fantastic and the spinach pie is to die for. You'll LOVE it!!

The aromas from the kitchen make you salivate upon entering...garlic, oregano, olive oil, grilled meats. Flexible menu to meet anyone's tastes. Look for the daily specials, particularly Saturday...the Bosses meal is perfect to share between two people and leaves room for dessert. The dish is an array of menu items and all are good.

Been coming here since I was in college (back in the 80s.) Nice people and good food. The Greek pizza and the calamari are the best!

I lived in Norfolk for several years, and Orapax was a place I loved to visit for delicious moderately priced meals. Returning for a visit this old favorite the other day, I was pleased to find that their food was still as great as I remembered after my years away from Norfolk. You cannot go wrong in ordering in this... More

Got a chance to eat again at Orapax in Norfolk. It's a local restaurant tucked into a neighborhood on the outskirts of Ghent on Redgate that might be a little hard to locate the first time. Has the typical Mediterranean food and desserts. The Greek Salad with bread, oil with balsamic vinegar mix is good. Has pizza, gyros I like... More

This is a locals favorite and for very good reasons. Excellent meals and reasonable prices. I always get the Greek Sampler as my favorite selection. I just wish they'd bring back the elephant beans!

Orapax is a local tradition. The spinach pizza is extraordinary and the Greek salad amazing. The service is very good, absent large crowds. Highly recommended!

Thank Lynn1950
