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.

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...

Food was very good, but we were rushed with the bills. Some of us had not even finished the meal and the place was by no means busy

Business description (5)

We are fully open for dine in, take out, and delivery!! In 1966, Louis Seretis purchased a small confectionary. He named it Orapax for the street upon which the front door opened. Longshoremen, railroad workers, and other locals came to play pool and purchase medicine, cigars, beer, and a "Poormans Sandwich", spam and cheese on white bread. In 1973 Louis replaced the sandwich with his own...

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...

This local favorite has a festive and inviting neighborhood atmosphere and offers a delightful blend of Greek and Mediterranean dishes, such as mouthwatering dolmades, rich spanikopita, sweet pastitso, and spicy beef-filled grape leaves. They are open Monday through Saturday for lunch and dinner; closed on Sundays.

Go to Orapax Inn for a place that dishes up Greek food. Expect the average entrée to cost for the most part in the range of $8 to $12, and guests typically dress casual.

Eating & Drinking: Open for lunch and dinner.

Details to Note: Reservations are not necessary. Delivery and carryout are available. Parking has been arranged for customers.

Ways to Pay: Cash Only

Tucked along the edge of the residential West Ghent neighborhood, the Orapax Inn has been serving up Greek favorites for more than 30 years. The Mediterranean-style building welcomes you with Greek music. Inside, colorful carpets and travel photos adorn the walls. Service is old-style here -- pleasant and efficient without being overeager. Olive oil, feta cheese and eggplant are some of the...
