Very consistent

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... read 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

Visited this restaurant after reading other reviews. Not super impressed, seeing as it's ranked #2 restaurant in Edson and was very expensive. Service was prompt, efficient and friendly. Decor is dated and quirky but typical for an 80s era greek restaurant. Was really, really dark, notwithstanding the little tealight at our table. Hard to read the menu. I was excited... More

Spotty water glasses, old stained tablecloths. Seems they are just coasting, food quality is not reflective of the price charged. Chicken souvlaki used low quality meat, rice and salad just tasted very bland. If you want better Greek make the drive to Edson! I would pick Boston Pizza over this restaurant.

My wife was in the local quilt shop and the staff member working there asked her where we were going to have dinner (my wife mentioned we were from out of town).Being that we are not from Hinton Alberta we didn't have a clue...she said "if you like Greek food, then the only place to go is Olympia." We thought,... More

In the past, eating here was a treat. Now it's more of an average quality experience. No investment in updating the place (in over a decade) was apparent and the food quality wasn't as good as I remembered it from the past.
