Excellent lunch in Olympia

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... read 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

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
