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

Olympia offers much more than Greek food to diners. Local foods are offered in gourmet presentation. A variety of fish is always available as well as the ubiquitous Spanakopita, Tsatsiki,Calamari (excellent), etc. The atmosphere is pure Greece with the Parthenon front and centre, and the lovely herbal scents when you walk in the door whet the appetite immediately. Great for... More

Looking for something different, went with guests who recommended Greek food. Casual dining, only 12 guests at table so service was quick. $35 a plate for lamb very pricy outside metropolitan area. Veggies were fresh but soggy on a bed of rice swimming in juice. Rack of lamb was very tasy & good size portion. Friendly service from waitress would... More

Recently we visited Hinton and decided to eat here because it is one of our favorites. We were not disappointed yet again. My husband and I had the steak which was delicious and the Lemon potatoes are my fav. Kids had the baked spaghetti and they loved it. The owner personally thanked us for coming and was very kind.

Having eaten at a number of Greek restaurants over the years I was surprised at the quality and excellence of food here. Being from Calgary, this was only my second time in Hinton and first time visiting this restaurant. I decided on the Lamb Souvlaki meal which came with Greek Salad, Tzazki, Rice and Lemon Potato with pita bread for... More

I eat here roughly once per week and in love with there Greek spaghetti. Have tried a few other things but always come back to the spaghetti. If you dont like something no worries the owner is generally sitting there everyday. It is not the cheapest place to dine in Hinton but you get what you pay for and I... More
