My family and I have been enjoying Orapax for 15 plus years now. The atmosphere has a Mediterranean feel, the dress is casual, food is great. The first Friday of each month is a treat with wine by the glass $2.00EA. Saganaki, Greek salad, lamb kabobs, Spinach Pizza. All very good! Recommend venturing off the beaten path to experience Orapax.

Food as fresh and came out quickly. Despite there being a huge party in the restaurant our waitress was very attentive.

I ate lunch here one day since I was working at the local shipyard. I really enjoyed it. Great service, very good tasting food, and good value. I will definitely eat here again. The service didn't take very long at lunch time although we arrived there later than most people did.

A little hard to find but well worth the search. We couple lunch here with a visit to the Chrysler Museum. There are pretty close to each other. We split a dinner saled (plenty for two) and then have the Orapax pizza all the way.

My wife and I stopped by on a trip to Virginia's Tidewater area. It's as good as we remember. The menu is typically Greek (gyros, pasta, eggplant and the like). The prices are reasonable. The location is in a neighborhood near Sentara Norfolk Hospital.

I participate in their birthday where you get a free dinner ( 10.00 value) during the month of your birthday. The food is awesome and the prices are excellent. The wait staff is knowledgeable and willing to help with suggestions and recommendations to save you money. Best Greek food around by far.

We stopped for pizza after a movie as we had heard about this restaurant for a long time. The stuffed grape leaves appetizer was delicious until a fly landed in the lemon sauce. Then, while we waited for our pizza, we watched the flies crawling on the window, flitting about our glasses, and walking on the bread. It was most... More

If you like Greek food, this is the place for you. The atmosphere is amazing and you'll feel like you're back in Santorini!! If you've never experienced Greek food, this is a perfect place to take the leap. The grape leaves are fantastic and the spinach pie is to die for. You'll LOVE it!!

The aromas from the kitchen make you salivate upon entering...garlic, oregano, olive oil, grilled meats. Flexible menu to meet anyone's tastes. Look for the daily specials, particularly Saturday...the Bosses meal is perfect to share between two people and leaves room for dessert. The dish is an array of menu items and all are good.

Been coming here since I was in college (back in the 80s.) Nice people and good food. The Greek pizza and the calamari are the best!
