Greek cuisine is typically interior characterized by the fusion of seafood and land, the combination of flavors and textures using Olive Oil and Vinegar to a large extent, as well as various types of vegetables, cheese, meat, fish and more.
Puerto Vallarta welcomes the latest addition to the Mediterranean-style gastronomic food line, the Greek restaurant OPA. Under the guidance of his chef Pablo, traditional general plates made with the best stuff. Grecia is in Vallarta, enjoy here and now about the history full of flavor.
not since ruben's karpathos in the '90s has vallarta had a good greek restaurant, so i was thrilled yesterday to discover opa!
the ambiance transported me to the greek islands, the owner from naxos. the food and prices excellent.
and even when living in greece, I never had a yummier baklava!!!
it's an intimate space, so reservations recommended.

Delicious! Had baba ghanoush, falafel and a lamb gyro… Topped it off with two shared desserts...a fig mouse (mild flavor) and baklava (of course). The only criticism from the group was the music was a tad too loud. Will definitely go back!
For weeks I had been buzzing around to check if OPA was set and ready to receive customers. Every time I got a friendly smile from the owner, some explanation, an apology, and an invitation to check back soon. Expectations were high since I LOVE Greek food, and so far none had been even close to fulfilling our palates. Until OPA came into existence !! The bistro is small but charming, only of few tables available.
Avgolemono was my first choice of course, and gyro (lamb) and loukoumades for dessert. It was a hard choice, I had to take my time and choose carefully, the waiter David helped so much with this!
The soup was superior, the gyro very tasty and much better than any other I have had in Mexico and the dessert was great too. I had some iced tea, which was very good, and I just wish they had greek beverages Chef Apostolis came by to explain about his restaurant, his menu and himself. He is very nice, friendly and welcoming. I will definitely be coming back and recommend everybody to pay a visit to this new hidden jewel of Puerto Vallarta.
congrats to the chef...I wish you many years of joy and wonderful food at your restaurant!
