Most times I come back to the states or travel to another country, I try to have at least one Greek meal. It is nostalgia and it reminds me of my youth. Sometimes, it is great, but often it's just...meh. At Opa! Greek Taverna, it was not meh, but outstanding. Chef Josef Majaens uses all fresh ingredients, sources locally- when he can, and gets the top grade Greek ingredients. Also, the restaurant has a very modern look to it. It's very open and the skyroof makes it feel like you are having lunch on an outside field on a temperate day.
I am glad that I had a chance to experience this restaurant while I was in Nova Scotia and I'll have to come back again. Now if I can make some room in my stomach, I will have to go (there is a location downtown) and have a slice of his Feta Cheese Cake topped with Quince.
