Fodor's Expert Review Taverna Opa

$$$ Central Orlando Greek

This high-energy Greek restaurant offers a fun evening in a lively environment to supplement excellent Greek staples and a nice selection of meze (small plate) appetizers. Here the ouzo flows like a mountain stream, the Greek (and global) music almost reaches the level of a rock concert, and the roaming belly dancers actively encourage diners to join in. The only thing missing is the Greek restaurant tradition of throwing dinner plates, made up in part by the throwing of small paper napkins, which sometimes reaches near-blizzard level. Standouts on the menu include traditional staples like spanakopita, saganaki (the traditional flaming cheese appetizer), avgolemono (lemony chicken-rice soup), and perhaps the most famous Greek entrée, moussaka. Family-style meals for groups of four and up are available at $33 and $44 per person. The best dessert is the baklava.
