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.

We had only tried Orapax food at a charity event once so decided to go for dinner.
They sent out an email for their lambilicious weekend specials, which got us interested.
When we were seated, we were given the standard menu. And there was no mention of their lamb specials that had brought us in. Unfortunately, our waitress was new,...

Six of us ate lunch at ORAPAX's and received excellent and superb food.
I strongly support eating at ORAPAX's.

Orapax Restaurants is located at 1300 Redgate Ave, Norfolk, VA. This business specializes in Family Style Restaurants and has 9 review(s) with a star rating of 4.45454545455.

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.
