Just like any good holiday destination, it may be the old favourites that draw you back time and again, but you still want to discover something fresh on each visit. Opa’s hot-off-the-press menu is here to satisfy, packed with ever-popular Greek classics and mouthwatering new creations.

Make the first stop on your culinary journey Opa’s signature tuna tartare starter, served with black truffle, Greek yoghurt, confit shallot and crisp koulouri bread.
