I've read quite a few reviews here and only one mentioned the waitress as being 'cranky.' I don't get it, because if it wasn't for her, we'd be eating here a lot more often. She's the worst waitress I've ever had at any restaurant I've...More

My choice for my birthday meal! Best Greek food in Sarasota 🥇The chef Yanni is creative and utilizes fresh ingredients for a marvelously crafted meal. Try the Greek wines 🍷or beers to complement the Mediterranean flavors! Outstanding service from Sybil as well!

Welcome to OPA! OPA!, Where we provide an authentic Greek dining experience and treat our guests like family! We are a family run Greek restaurant that opened its doors in 2013 and serves the Gulf Gate area of Sarasota, FL and beyond. When you walk in our restaurant, you will immediately feel the warmth and family atmosphere we have created. We pride ourselves on serving only high quality, homemade, and fresh food. We truly care about our guests and know them on a first name basis; many have become like family to us. Our cozy restaurant is run by a husband and wife team, along with a few trusted and valued employees. Michele oversees the front of the restaurant, while Yanni doubles as our Executive Chef and brings over 20 years of experience to our business. Many of our recipes are straight from his mother's village in Peloponnese, Greece. We offer a wide variety of traditional Greek cuisine and a collection of Greek wines you are sure to love! All of our meals are made-to-order by Yanni himself and will surely leave you feeling satisfied. Our goal is to serve our guests a meal "just like Yiyia used to make" and for you to leave here feeling like part of our family. You can dine in or carry out; let our family serve your family! Your Hosts, Michele and Yanni Haralampopoulos
