Took my boyfriend there for his 31st Birthday on a Tuesday evening. The place was packed and vibrant. The owner Andreas has lots of energy and is a very good host. Gave us some free Tequilas for the celebration. Food was amazing, would definitely recommend the Mezze platter. And when the bill came i was shocked that we had such a good evening at such an affordable bill. We will see you soon......

We have now visited and eaten at Opa around 4 times since it opened, including the opening night. We have usually been there on the weekend when the belly dancer is there (excellent and very festive atmosphere!). To date, we have not been disappointed. The decor is wonderful, the service excellent and the food delicious. Last night, we had falafel on humus and meatballs, plus a range of other mezze offerings - and each was delicious. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable evening and well worth repeating.

On arrival the place was pumping, which was great to see as the previous restaurant in this spot did not do well. Unfortunately this impacted on the service and we waited an hour and a half for our Meze platter to arrive, with the result we were starving when it did eventually arrive, so perhaps filled ourselves too much and did not have much space left for the main course. The food was delicious though, both starter and main.

My main concern with Opa is the food that is very average to be polite. Ok so the waiters are witty attentive and friendly (some a bit over the top) and apparently good atmosphere but if the food lacking the establishment will battle to sustain long term.

We visited on a Friday afternoon and was only table bar two others.....

Tapas starter (recommended by waiter) was ok but def nothing more.

My baby chicken as main was tasteless the fillet as mains got zero raving reviews neither did the lamb shank.

First impressions were very good..........staff very attentive and friendly. Owner chatted to us and recommended the Moussaka which was freshly made. 3 of us were tempted and ordered.......service was quick but the stainless steel small roasting pans containing the food were cold and the moussaka was cold and we all had to send it back to be reheated! Not good. We did complain but no one came back to see us about it not very good! Belly dancing was fun and created a good atmosphere. Good location and will maybe go back and give it another go!
