“Great restaurant and wonderfull ambiance”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

I have driven past so many times, and was not disappointed when we finally decided to give Opa a try.

We sat outside as it was quite a pleasant evening (for winter...) service was great, our waiter was friendly and helpful. He recommended the meze platter, which is really good value for money. Food was great, especially the squid and hummus!!

I think it might have been to noisy inside, but didn't bother us where we were. The music, lights and stream passing by made us feel like we were in Greece - well done we will definitely be back! (still want to break a few plates though!!?)

“Find the Greek and win...”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

A visit to Opa Greek Taverna jolted my memory about the well know joke concerning the hostel pie. If you can find the meat in the pie, you can win the car! The same apply to Opa. If you can find the Greek in the restaurant, you will be a winner. Except for the menu and the name of the restaurant you could have been in any suburban restaurant in Cape Town. So don’t expect a typical Greek experience when you visit Opa. The food is relatively good. Not exceptional, but good. Our group felt the meze’s was better than the main course. My main course, Opa Calamari, could easily be mistaken for a meze. Luckily our waiter, Nato, saved the situation by offering to replace it. Well done to him! The wine list is not extensive, but big enough to cater for all tastes. Will I be back? I am not sure…

“Greek spirit!!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Always a pleasurable experience - incredible vibe on Friday nights when they have a belly dancer entertaining the crowd. Good food, good vibe - nice people! Definitely to be recommended. This is a fun place - not somewhere that you will go for serious conversation (unless you choose to sit outside in the beautiful garden.

“Light meal -refreshing ”
Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

What I love about Greek food is that it just tastes fresh,different and usually quite healthy. We just had some quick snacks -the outa and hummus -and a gyros and they were all done really well

“Tasteless food and very noisy”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

The staff did try to make it a good experience but the food was not good and the restaurant very noisy which made it almost impossible to speak to each other. They brought on a belly dancer which was also pathetic.
