Fancy a smashing dinner? There’s a new Greek restaurant opening in Dubai, and it’s promising just that – literally. Time Out Dubai has been behind the scenes to check it out.
OPA is an “upscale-casual Greek” restaurant that will be opening in the Fairmont Dubai on Sunday (December 16), and it’s looking smart.
Interiors are decked out with traditional white and blue colour schemes, as well as plenty of greenery to add vibrancy.
The team behind the restaurant promises an “authentic Greek experience”, which as well as a traditional menu, will also have Zorba dancing, plate smashing and live Greek entertainment.
OPA is the word that people shout when a plate is smashed – either on purpose or accidentally – and is often heard at weddings or during traditional dancing.
The menu hasn’t yet been revealed, but we can expect grilled meats, salads, fish and pastries.
You can already book in for New Year’s Eve, though, and a menu has been launched including prawn saganaki, kleftiko, Greek salad, halloumi, spinach pie with the evening starting at Dhs650.
We can’t wait to get stuck into some tzatziki.
Opening Dec 16. Fairmont Dubai, Sheikh Zayed Road (04 357 0557).
