We had the lamb kabobs and it was a lot of food!! Could have shared a plate. Very good and tender meat with tasty side dishes. Just a couple blocks off Sherman Street so very easy to get to. And....we had no problem with parking along the street, unlike busy Sherman Street. Highly recommended.

Excellent gyros. Very large portions and fresh ingredients. The waitress was a little scattered (we got no silverware and had to ask for napkins, but it was noon and very busy. Will definitely go back when we are in the area and recommend to anyone who loves Greek.

authentic greek food - large portions - very reasonable. The staff was very helpful here. It's off the main strip by 2 streets, but worth the walk from the hotel! The greek food was sooo good. The portions were very generous. I had a plate meal with chicken -- 5 large pieces of chicken, I took some of them back... More

First stopped here 3 summers ago. It set the standard by which we rate other Greek cuisine across the country. We're visiting the CDA area again and made this our first stop for lunch. Still the best Greek food we've had! Not a fancy place, just medium-sized, but who cares? We're there for the food. The dolmades are fantastic. I... More

Lamb - tender, juicy, melts in your mouth! Souvlaki (marinated meat in a pita bread with onions, lettuce, tomatoes and tzaziki sause), Kebab or a platter - you can't go wrong. There are other wonderful dishes for every one - lemon soup, Greek pizza or Greek salad, gyros or dolmades (stuffed grape leaves in lemon sauce) but lamb is my... More

This place came highly recommended by a local person. I really like Greek salads with gyros meat. This one was the worst Greek salad I ever had and the meat was too salty. I had a hard time getting the server's attention. The restaurant is not really attractive. I really regret eating here.

Great all around - lemon soup, dolmades, gyros, whatever - it's all wonderful at a great price. We had a very short wait, but the server was attentive and did a great job. Nothing to be improved upon - the food was hot and fresh. Love it.

Ordinarily you would not expect great food for lunch at a Greek restaurant. Good, comfort food yes, but not great food. Olympia is a wonderful surprise. The lemon chicken soup, Greek salad with chicken, and the gyro were all top notch. This place is well worth a visit.

Ate here on T/A recommendations and were not disappointed, the food was very good. The restaurant is located one block off the main street in the downtown area with a lot of available parking. The menu has a lot of Greek specialties and many basic dishes. I had the Moussaka and the wife had the Dolmades (stuffed grape leaves) and... More
