Description: We offer an assortment of traditionally prepared dishes of fresh seafood, premium cut meats, and a unique wine selection to complement our menu. Our unique take on dining incorporates celebration and good times to our delicious Mediterranean menu. We encourage you to participate! Jump in the Zorba, our traditional line dance, or dance alongside the belly dancer while a confetti of napkins surrounds you. As the hours pass the night transcends to a more sophisticated nightlife, led by our live DJ spinning a variety of Greek, Spanish, and Top 40 Hits. Fresh seafood and steak along with our nightly entertainment has made Taverna Opa the top destination dining venue in Orlando. Remember, the night’s not over until the ouzo runs out!

In the mood for Greek food and found this restaurant was listed as one of the best Geek restaurants in Orlando for 2012, so we decided to give it a try. The food was very good. We had dolmades, Greek salad, Greek meatballs, moussaka, and lamb shank. As we enjoyed our food, we heard the word "opa" being chanted by the servers and napkins being thrown happily in the air. Then the party really got started. A belly dancer came out and danced around the restaurant. Soon other patrons joined in the jubilance. Our 1 year old started dancing in her high chair. What a pleasant surprise to eat in such a lively eatery.

If you are an extremist tree hugger or a germaphobe this is not the place for you!!

Make sure you make reservations before the madness starts... A belly dancer comes out with some great moves and then a rain of napkins all over the restaurant, napkins everywhere!! People dancing on chairs and tables, very loud but fun music and lots and lots of laughter.

The food was delicious! The sangria was great, the spatakopita was delicious and my shrimp Kabob was awesome! Also the lamb kabob!

The price is on the high side but it was so much fun and all worth it! Definitely a must if you've never been!

We had a banquet style meal for about 15 people. This was simply outstanding! The food was superb and authentic. You don't go away hungry! Be prepared to belly dance on the tables! A great experience and family friendly as you'd expect!

This was a pretty good place to eat. We ate outside, it was raining, but they had an awning and it was fine. The food was pretty good, good portions. A belly dancer came out and danced at all of the tables. They add 20% tip for parties of 5 or more.

Good food, but definitely not worth the money. The waiters treat guests badly as the tip is included. So, they do not care for how they treat you. 20% gratuity tip. RIPOFF. service is terrible, so why would you want to tip.
