The place was busy but this does not excuse the lousy service and poor food. After waiting for 35 minutes to be asked if we wanted to drink something we were served decent white wine simply filling up our glasses in order to avoid to have to bring us an ice bucket. After a long session of signalling to the waiter - very busy jumping around and shouting "OPPPPPPAAAAA"!! he finally came to the table to take the order: "what do you want....moussaka???" was the introduction....we had to ask him to actually write down the order since we were going to as for a selection of mezze rather than starters and mains. When the food eventually came it was most insipid and disappointing: almost cold skewers with a blob of sauce on it, blackened pita bread etc...having been in Greece a few times I was really looking forward to tasty food but....not that night! When the same waiter was asked for a glass of red wine the answer was: "what do you want, Merlot????" Really, there is no excuse for such an attitude in this industry. To cut a long story short, make yourself a favour and dine somewhere else.

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.
