While I go to restaurants to eat, the restaurant decor to me is equally important for a great experience. This restaurant is in a great high-ceiling room with "trees", clay pots, beautiful bright and simple Greek decor which already puts you in the mood.

I have several times had the three-dip tasting menu, hummus, tzatziki and taramasalata with pita bread, and also the grilled halloumi cheese with spinach and grilled fennel, which is very good.

The restaurant has retsina wine which for me is essential for a real Greek meal.

I have eaten "Greek" around the world, including in Greece, and think this restaurant is every bit as Greek as one in Greece. I highly recommend it.

Stopped by at 1:00 for lunch, the place was packed. Had the chicken souvlaki lunch special which included rice and a greek salad. Very tasty and filling. Service was great too.

Great atmosphere, great food and would have rated higher....but unfortunately the service was very very slow and poor. Our waitress did not even offer us water until we had sat waiting for 15 minutes for the menus to be brought.

A note that Opa is now called Ela, and is still delicious. One of the best places to eat in town. A warm atmosphere combines with amazing food with something for anyone.
