Great Salemanship

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... read more

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

My wife and I stopped at La Belle Helene for lunch on 15 Dec 2014. We shared a mixed grill (bifteki, souvlaki, gyro,etc.) that was the perfect amount for the two of us and so delicious. We also ordered two ouzos for after the meal and were surprised by how big they were. Needless to say, after our excellent Greek... More

After visiting the original Olympic Games ruins, we strolled into Olympia for lunch. Nice little tree lined street lead us to several choices. All had clients except for Belle Helene, so we said "Why not ?". The owner/cook and a relative seated us and we ordered the Moussaka, stuffed peppers, and a block of fresh feta drizzled with Greek olive... More

Wandering around the town of Olympia, Greece we noticed a taverna named La Belle Helene - since my name is Helene, we thought we'd give it a try. Great decision! George welcomed us warmly and we started an endless conversation as he spoke English and had visited the USA. The food he recommended was very good and there was lots... More

La Belle Helene is a non distinguishing tavern, but the service and the food make the difference. We had an excellent mixed grill with fish roe salad and a Greek salad and it was all very well prepared. When we asked for a bit more sauce with the grilled meat we were granted a generous portion of this delicious stuff... More
