OPAH RESTAURANT @ CNR KINGSWAY + GERRALE STREET, CRONULLA NSW
This is hands down my favourite restaurant I have ever been to. Its location, upstairs on the corner of the Kingsway and Gerrale Street, gives Opah views of North Cronulla beach and the busy Cronulla streets.
Opah serves (absolutely delicious) Greek cuisine, has a relaxed atmosphere and has an indoor (seats 120), outdoor (seats 40) and bar seating area (seats 50). I would definitely recommend arriving with an empty stomach, ready to leave stuffed but satisfied.
Their $45 Greek Yum Cha menu is worth every cent, offering Greek salads, dips, haloumi, chicken to spit roast lamb. You could order 5 plates of haloumi if you wanted to – well worth your money. If you go with friends, you can order a variety of entrees as share plates, ranging from dips, fried calamari, bbq octopus, lamb/chicken souvlaki to Greek sausages.
If you do feel like having your own meal, $35 will have you full to capacity. Choose your meat (spit roast lamb – would definitely recommend this, bbq octopus, barramundi to prawns), which is served with a Greek salad, pita bread and your choice of vegetables or chips.
Their cocktail jugs are also delicious – for $25, you can get roughly four and a half cups.
This is a restaurant I go with my boyfriend almost every week and have always had incredible service and amazing food! The staff are relaxed but attentive, the food comes out promptly, and the drinks are delicious. Roughly about $100 for two people.
