Owner Peter pouring cocktail

Our Founder

Peter Tsialiamanis founded the first Taverna Opa location in Hollywood over twenty years ago as an homage to his love of Greek food and the celebrity culture that goes along with it.  His vision was to embody the Greek spirit of “Opa”, a gathering place for guests to celebrate the basic elements of life: good, simple food, drink, and music, enjoyed with family and friends. That philosophy has held true for over twenty years, and the legacy of fine, fun Greek cuisine is continuing with his children at the wheel.

RESTAURANT CRITICS

Hollywood

“If you love good Greek food, and aren’t opposed to having a good
time while you eat it, you should experience Taverna Opa.””

“The Greek dishes here are authentic, of high quality and served in ample portions.”

“Great Greek salads, moussaka, and chicken souvlaki.”

“You’ll forget that you are not really in a rustic tavern in Greece.”

“For all its emphasis on having fun, it is quite serious about its food.”

“Don’t be surprised if you find yourself atop a table, howling to the gathered and channeling your inner coyote ugly.”

  • "Authentic & high quality"


    There’s something else you should know about Taverna Opa: For all its emphasis on having fun, it is quite serious about its food. The Greek dishes here are authentic, of high quality and served in ample portions. If you love good Greek food and aren’t opposed to having a good time while you eat it, you should experience Taverna Opa.

  • "Eat, drink, & be very, very merry"

    Face the water and watch the sunset. Sit in a simple black painted chair pulled up to a long wooden plank of a table, and sip ouzo. Smell lamb and fish sizzling on a  wood-fired grill. Feel the ocean breeze and listen to it flap white, sail-like canvas screens, which are hiding the parking lot to help you forget that you are not really in a rustic tavern in Greece. You are in  Hollywood. This is the place to eat, drink, and be very, very merry.

  • "Knock me over with a feather"

    Knock me over with a feather, Taverna Opa serves good Greek food right on the water. It’s got views, it’s got belly dancing, plus napkin tossing and people yelling “Opa!” and, yes, it has got great Greek salads, moussaka, and chicken souvlaki.

  • "Opa is fun, with a capital 'F'"


    Taverna Opa is Fun, with a capital ‘F. From the raucous level of the music on the expansive waterside terrace to the flip but friendly servers, it’s clear from the beginning that no one here takes things too seriously. That’s not to say the food is haphazard, because it is not.  There’s more to life than menus that need three lines to list the ingredients in each dish. At Taverna Opa, a few words do it and do it very well.

  • "Greek specialties are first-rate"

    Mediterranean meals in a Dionysian setting. Vacationers will, undoubtedly, eat this place up. The platters of Greek and  Mediterranean specialties are first-rate… even the most self-possessed of patrons can’t help but get caught up in Opa’s frenzied scene – “fun with a capital F,” says their website. So don’t be surprised if you find yourself atop a table, howling to the gathered and channeling your inner coyote ugly.

  • "Drum-throbbing & belly-dancing"

    In Short – Dried herbs hang from the rafters and village scenes dot the walls of the rustic interior. Though waiters once broke into folk dances here, Opa has evolved into a drum-throbbing, belly-  dancing dive where anyone can mount tables to shimmy. The menu features grilled seafood and meats, moussaka and meze (Greek tapas). Desserts include phyllo-custard pie and yogurt drizzled with mountain honey and walnuts. Anise-flavored ouzo is available for those who want an authentic alcoholic drink.

    "Hands Down the Best Greek"

    “Whenever I’m back in Boca I try to get here because it’s hands down the best Greek restaurant I’ve ever been to. The menu is extensive with so many choices of apps compared to most other Greek restaurants. They have everything you can think of. I love the spanakopita, crispy zucchini fries, salmon, but everything is wonderful.”
