This place is great. Best place for Greek bar none in this area. Spanakopita, Pastitsio, Yigendes are all delicious, and the Dolmades are to die for! People who give this place a bum rap probably don't have any idea what Greek is in the first place. We love this place!

Best Greek food in Hampton Roads bar none. The salad was wonderful with just the right amount of everything. I loved the bread and butter that they bring before your meal. Prices are excellent and the atmosphere makes you truely feel as though you are somewhere different. Sometimes the waitstaff can be a little slow but when the food comes it is worth the wait. The lunch pizza/salad combo is definitely worth it as well. I try to go here at least once a week. It's that good.

I would say the fare here is American-Greek vs. true Greek like you'd find in Chicago's Greektown. But I am not complaining one bit!

I had an excellent dish & the service was wonderful. Three was an adequate selection of wines and the prices were terrific. It's not a date place -- more like a lunch or dinner with the husband & kids restaurant -- but I'll definitely be back.

This locals' favorite has a pleasant offering of traditional Greek and Mediterranean cuisine at an equally pleasing price.

The Scene
Lilting Greek music wafts from outdoor speakers beckoning would-be diners into the unpretentious neighborhood inn. Inside, against a wood-paneled backdrop, green ivy coils...

This place is phenomenal! The service is fantastic, everyone of the staff members were very polite.

One of Norfolk's best kept secret. A neighborhood place that has gotten classier with age!! Remodel looks amazing. The chefs knocked it out of the park. Fresh and homemade food. And the cocktails...

Orapax started as a confectionary in 1966 and today a full-service restaurant. Located in Norfolk, Va., the restaurant specializes in Italian and Greek cuisine. It offers catering services for weddings, parties and corporate events. The restaurant maintains a party room that accommodates more than 100 guests. Orapax operates a birthday club and offers delivery services. Its menu includes a...

in 1966, Louis Seretis purchased a small confectionery. It was called "Orapax" for the street upon which the front door opened. Through that door, regular patrons, mainly longshoremen, railroad workers, and other locals, came to purchase medicine, cigars, and Louie's own "Poorman's" sandwiches -- Spam and cheese on white bread. Others drifted in to have a beer or shoot a game of pool.

Surprising Spirits

While prices vary with selection, a decent bottle of table wine can accompany any meal for under $13.
