I had a spanakopita platter with a Greek salad, boiled potato and pita bread. The flavors weren't as tangy as I'd hoped, so the entire meal was sorta meh.

The food was AMAZING! It wasn't greasy and was quite filling. The service was OK but the food was great. Would definitely recommend.

We were told by some that this is the best restaurant in Hinton. After eating there we found out that most residents of Hinton travel to Jasper for a good meal . . . . I found the prices very high. A chicken soulvaki dinner with one skewer was $27. The rise was soaking in liquid, the lemon potato was... More

Olympia is a small restaurant with excellent food, great service, and enormous portions. In our three-day stay in Hinton, we ate there twice. On the first visit we had delicious stews - one lamb and one chicken - and had enough leftovers for a large lunch the next day. On our second visit we had delicious lamb souvlaki, served with...

Overall slightly below average. Saganaki was almost impossible to separate from the plate. When we asked for help the waitress informed us that is how it's served. Not true and rude. Chicken souvlaki was ok but the accompanying Greek salad was mainly onions and lacking any flavour of feta or dressing/vinegar. The tzatziki and rice were just ok. The lemon... More

My husband and I had dinner here this evening. The restaurant wasn't busy, which isn't surprising for Monday night. My husband enjoyed the Alexander's Favourite for an appetizer--great sauce. I had Moussaka for dinner and he had the Chicken Souvlaki. The potatoes, greek salad and tzatziki sauce were all delicious. The music and atmosphere were comfortable--but we both agreed that...

We ate here two years ago when we first visited Hinton. The food was great then and continues to be so. There are a number of vegetarian options on the menu. I chose the panfried vegetable stew which is full of fresh peppers and fresh tomatoes. The lemon potatoes are very good as is the salad. If I had any... More
