Friday night date night was a little different this past week. We had planned on a couples’ night out, but mid-week when Josh started coming down with a sinus infection, he opted to stay home. I went out anyway, and my wonderful friends never made me feel like a 5th wheel.
We went to Tavern Opa! as Channelside. I’ve been to an Opa’s once before in Orlando, and I loved it! When I found out that one was coming to Tampa, I had to go!
The food was amazing! Have you ever had Saganaki? If not, you MUST try it! It’s flaming cheese! We had the Saganaki and spicy Feta with Pita for an appetizer (BEWARE: Definitely not LoseIt! approved). For dinner, I split a Greek platter and salad with Allison and it was TONS of food!
Every hour or so, the restaurant basically turns into a Greek-style night club. The music turns up, and the servers all come out doing some type of a line dance around the whole restaurant. The servers toss paper napkins everywhere, and they leave a stack on your table for you to toss too. Watch out though… the napkins will land in your drink! A Belly Dancer comes out too and dances around the tables; oh and sometimes ON the table! So much fun!
Overall, I give Opa’s a 4 out of 5! I can’t wait to go back again!
