From what I'm told this is a local landmark, they have been at this location for so long that they even named a street after them!! The atmosphere has a elegant Mediterranean feel and the dress code is casual. The area you have to walk through to get to the bathrooms is still under renovation (they are adding a bar... More

Even during a remodel period Orapax manages to produce quality favorites. New decor including photos of Orapax history was amazing!

The best Greek food around. Start with Pegasus Wings and go on to the entrée, Pizza, Greek Chicken, Lamb. Great wine and atmosphere for any occasion. They are expanding with a bar area so be patient.

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
