We chose the Olympia based on other Trip Advisor reviews, so we expected it to be good. Wow! How it exceeded those expectations. We almost chose to go into a trendy looking place next door and were so glad we stuck with our original choice. This friendly, family-run restaurant serves outstanding food at an incredible value. As we walked in,... More

The lamb we had was close to the best we have ever had. The dolmades were also delicious. The cost was very reasonable. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Excellent service, pride in presentation, reasonable price and a nice atmosphere. Food? Just wonderful, though the portions are a little generous.

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.
