I really enjoyed the Moussaka at Olympia Greek Restaurant on East Colonial. It came accompanied with a salad and string beans, and a beverage was included. Very tasty. Welcoming staff. Good value.

We ordered a platter of different foods.Everything tasted so good.The grape leaves were so delicious,and the tzatziki -Yummie.Nothing like the other greek restaurants.So we asked the server and it turns out that they make it from scratch,all the way down to actually preparing their own greek yogurt in the traditional style.Overall we had great time,great food,relaxing atmosphere,friendly staff.We'll definately go...

An icon of Greek food in Orlando, this restaurant provides great meals which are freshly prepared and delicious. The restaurant is unassuming from the outside, but beautiful inside. Plenty of easy parking too. Belly dancing shows on Friday/Saturday (check before you go) plus professional and friendly wait staff make this a superb place for a real Greek meal.

Came here for a lunch on a Sunday afternoon. Despite only having one server and multiple tables the service was great and personable. The food was some of the best greek food I have had in a while and the pricing was great for Orlando. The Poseidon said was terrific.

We ate at Olympia on Valentine's Day. While we had reservations for 7:30 p.m., we decided to try and go early and then take in a movie. We arrived at about 5:30 p.m. and were seated immediately. The service was exceptional, too. We had an appetizer and, realizing the size of the portions, asked if it would be okay to... More

Okay so we found this restaurant by means of yelp. We read the reviews and thought we would try it. Well we used open table for our reservation. We got here and didn't need it. Place was moderately busy. Make reservation Friday or Saturday if you want to eat at 8 pm because they have belly dancer and seats around... More

We had a very weird experience here. I still do not know if the server was not well trained or just insulting on purpose. I asked for a bottle of wine and he brought it opened with the cork on a side. I told him I would not accept an already opened bottle and that I wanted the bottle opened... More

We have lived in this area for many years, and have passed Olympia countless times. I decided to go someplace new after church yesterday, had been thinking about a Greek meal for a few days, and had a coupon for a free salad & beverage. Choice made. I was greeted immediately & warmly. I was the only diner, other than... More

Just gotback from Greece, looking for something to rekindle the memories. Have tried a llll the Greek restaurants in the Orlando area, none were anything to write home about. Until I went to Olympia. It's fabulous, authentic and homey. Cute atmosphere, amazing food. Highly recommend.

I decided to come back to Olympia restaurant just to see if it was as much fun as 15 years ago. So I made reservation for a party of 10 to have my birthday party there. This one was the one to remember. From the wonderful waiter who eagerly made great recommendations to exotic belly dancing show to us dancing... More
