We had a wonderful relaxing dinner at La Belle Helen. I had the Soutzoukakia for my main course and the baked feta with olive oil and spices for hors devours. It is a family run small open cafe half a block off the main street in the downtown shopping area. The service was fantastic.

My sister and I stopped here for dinner while visiting ancient Olympia. The service was great and the food was divine. While they were plenty of meat options, we enjoyed baked feta and delicious heirloom tomatoes stuffed with rice and seasonings. It was entirely delectable and if we were staying in Olympia any longer, we surely would have returned.

If you are looking for a pleasant restaurant with a variety of dishes at a very reasonable price, La Belle Helene is your place. Located just off the main street, it offers a quieter location and is held by friendly Konstantina who will do her best to please your palate. The waiter George is very helpful, gives sound advice about... More

Konstantina and Michel run this lovely taverna. It's not posh, it's not gimmicky, but the food is delicious, typically Greek and you will be looked after by Konstantina fantastically. There are a hundred different places to eat in Olympia but here you are guaranteed good food and good service served by friendly people. Konstantina swears she makes the best moussaka... More

Had dinner here twice with our daughter of 1. Owners helpful and friendly, made no fuss about a kid exploring the place. Traditional Greek cuisine, food very good. Received little extra's from owner such as some wine and fruit. Location is nice, just off main street which makes it a little bit quieter. We almost felt like dining with a... More

Thanks again to the owner/chef “Vasso” for your hospitality and the great food that Melinda and I enjoyed so much for two nights during our visit to Olympia in May 2012. Melinda has already tried to cook the lamb recipe that you kindly shared with her. For the benefit of other diners may I suggest that as there are so... More

On a recent trip to Greece we spent two days in Olympia. On the first evening we wandered around and the owner of this restaurant greeted us with a smile as we walked past (not pushy like the other 'greeters') and so, after browsing the shops we went back. It was a wonderful experience. The owner is friendly and the... More

My friends and I were walking around Olympia. We asked a local where he loved to eat if he'd eat out. He pointed us to the direction of this restaurant. It looked simple, no flashes and frills. Not at all touristy. The owner of the restaurant walked up to greet us and invite us over for lunch. Once seated, she... More

Not only did La Belle Helene have the best food in Olympia, the restaurant served me the best food I ate on mainland Greece. In fact, I ate there several times with Greek friends and colleagues, and they raved about it. One Greek friend told me that our meal tasted like her Grandmother's cooking, and was just as good.
