Hollywood Beach Opa Taverna- Table-top dancing Fun! This is a great place to go and have fun. The food is okay- I only say this because it has been hit or miss with this place. I order the same this every time- the Opa seafood salad and hummus and breadsticks and a couple sweet-creamy type liquors and lemon-water. Three times I've come here and the food was great and twice I've come here and been very disappointed with the food. I guess it depends who the cook or chef or kitchen-workers is/are. Drinks can be a bit on the expensive side, and probably will be where the majority of your bill comes from, depending on how many are in your party and how much everyone drinks. Management here also is hit and miss. Sometimes great, sometimes virtually non-existent. There is no cover charge which is great. It is a lively place, very much like a dance club would sound (especially after 10 or 11 pm on weekends), so if you're looking for a quiet romantic place to dine, this isn't it. If your like squeaky-clean floors, this isn't it either. On a busy night, the floors can get layered with napkins much like snow-blanketed sidewalks in the north. I would recommend wearing comfortable shoes you can dance in, because you REALLY don't wanna take your heels off and walk barefoot or in socks here. Tried it last time I came here- had to throw my once-white, then black-as-soot socks away. Waiters/waitresses are great, friendly, fun, engaging and enthusiastic. If you want to have some (usually) good food and have fun with friends, letting loose and shaking your booty on tabletops with belly-dancers, THIS PLACE IS AWESOME!

Best Greek food in Florida.
I've been just about everywhere Florida trying to find a nice Greek restaurant... it's not just the food at Taverna Opa that makes it the best, but the atmosphere and entertainment also. We went last weekend for my cousin's birthday dinner and we got one of the "family style" menus - so delicious! The dancing after was also one of the highlights of our night.
There was sooo much food too.. the saganaki, dolmades, lamb chops and keftedes were especially good. I could eat this stuff every day.
Thanks for a great night and for making my cousin's birthday very special.
Must do!. Taverna Opa is pretty good (start with some meze, salad too and try the seafood!) But the party after dinner really gets the restaurant hopping. Everyone just lets loose and enjoys themselves. Dancing and socializing. A great time and it's better if you get a few people together and go. Bring your camera, you'll need it!
fun dancing, bad managing. i went to opa friday night with some friends. the atmosphere was fun and the waiters were very nice, they even danced with us! the food was amazing. the only negative thing i have to say about this place would be that the manager was rude when we first got there and then when we were almost done the same rude guy put a bucket of beer right on the end of our table and started drinking it with his friends. i thought that was extremely unprofessional and inconsiderate. over all, i would recommend opa.
Girls Night Out.
My girls and I had a great time at Opa in Ft Lauderdale. The place was alive, Bachelorette and birthday parties all around our own. The staff was outgoing and fun-loving, very nice and the food was great. It was loud so if you want intimate it's not the place. It was great to see everyone dancing on the tables this is the place to go for "girls night out"
Pricey but Fun. I have been several times, always with a big group. That's the best way to go. Don't go if you just want the food because it's the fun, open atmosphere that keeps me going back and the hummus - yummy! That said, the trouble always comes with the bill. I have learned to just hand over twice what I think my portion would be to avoid the arguments. They really need to figure out a better way to present the check because it's a terrible way to end a great evening.
Great Greek. Had a great time here. Staff was nice and the food was great. It was loud so if you want intimate it's not the place. It was great to see everyone dancing on the tables and Fun, Fun, Fun.
