**** (4 stars)
Taverna Opa offers one of the most fun venues at Pointe Orlando. Serving both lunch and dinner, the restaurant has very different atmospheres at day and night.
Lunch is a quiet affair where you can eat outside, inside, and large parties can be accommodated in the spacious back room. At night it transforms into a lively party atmosphere, with much twirling of napkins and shouts of “Opa!”
The menu offers all the Greek standards. The cold appetizer platter is a nice sampling of three dips, and the hot appetizer platter offers delicious wings, lamb ribs, and so-so calamari.
Complimentary hummus that you crush yourself is served with very fresh pitas.
The best appetizer is probably the flaming cheese.
The souvlaki is actually a gyro served with fries, and your choice of filling.
Service is friendly and the wine list is extensive.
