Ok Gyro. Super friendly host

The food here was fine, but not super fantastic. We were in the mood for gyros so we didn't try any of the other dishes on the menu. Just gyro and calamari. The gyro meat was a bit dry. The pita and salad and tzatziki were good. The calamari was a bit too oily, but it was very, very tender.... read more

This is a family run taverna and by far the best in Olympia. The food is delightful and the range excellent . It is such a pleasure to eat at this traditional taverna and to be served by the delightful and engaging Helen.

Hostess Constandina makes sure you understand exactly what her food is by desctibing each dish in detail, including descriptions followed by comments like 'once you have tasted you will know it is the best and you will remember it' and 'made by my own hand' and ''superb' and perfect'! Well it was all true - and we thought she decided... More

friendly owner, small terrace. Tried mixed starters, sort of suasage, bruschetta and tzatziki which we liked a lot. Gyros with frnech fries was a enormous meal, could not finish it all. Good tastes.

Lovely Greek restaurant with very enthusiastic owner (and great saleswoman). Greece seems more expensive this year but this restaurant was worth it. Some of the restaurants in Olympia seem worn and not bothered to serve more than kebabs and pizzas - La Belle Helene is an exception and a good value, family run tavern with great Greek food.

We were impressed by the warm welcome we received. My husband had never tasted Ouzo before, not a problem have some on the house! The lady who served us was very knowledgeable about the food on offer. It soon became apparent to us that she really cared about the food being served and in fact was involved in making quite...

While visiting Olympia in March we stoped by this family restaurant. The owner is really nice, friendly and fun. She advised us on some dishes and all of them were great. Among those dishes was her Moussaka. She told us we would use her moussaka as a reference and we will end up grading others in comparison to hers. She... More
