We used to go to Orapax all the time when we lived in Norfolk and it has NOT declined in food, value or service. Even though they are in the middle of remodeling the food at lunch was GREAT and up to my Green Heritage standards, Granpa would have loved to eat here, but would not have bragged about it... More

We happened upon this off to the side little gem. We started off with a sampler platter. Huge portions. The service was amazing. We went on a weeknight so there were lots of locals there. Stuffed pepper was beautiful and the gyros were even better. Can't go wrong with this pick. Just lock the bathroom door if you use it.... More

If you haven't been to this restaurant, you don't know what you're missing. Located in a little neighborhood, we would have never guessed there was a restaurant here if Waze hadn't told us so. Interestingly enough, this restaurant has been around for 50 years. And the story of its history is very interesting, so don't miss reading about it on... More

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.

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.
