Description: This Cafe Bar, situated on the picturesque harbour of Makry-Gialos, serves excellent food and drinks. Hosts Hara and Dimitri prepare all the food, full English Breakfasts the best Greek salads, made in various ways to suit all, and tasty snacks served throughout the day. Prices held at last years cost. All this and great draught beer and cocktails always served with tradition appetising nibbles. Altogether a very pleasant cafe bar with a relaxing atmosphere and good wheelchair access.

our favourite place to have breakfast, the food which is served all day long is always great, the welcome always warm and the setting wonderful. Perfect place to sit and chill anytime

Dimitri makes everyone feel welcome and at ease. His genuine interest in his customers is obvious and that coupled with lovely fresh food and well kept beers and idyllic location makes Olympio Cafe the place to go in Makry-Gialos.

We always eat in the Olympio when we visit Makry-Gialos in SE Crete. The food is excellent and my husband can also vouch for the ice cold beer on offer. My absolute favourite is the walnut cake. It is utterly delicious, and I can recommend it highly. Sue & Bill from Bristol

Came here a couple of times for an omelette and greek salad. Friendly staff, great location right on the beach and when it rained they battened down the hatches very quickly!

Wholesome tasty breakfast fair but nothing special Service fine but without injection of any personality or warmth of note. Great location. Would go back but wouldn't rush to, and may well not within a week here. Slightly surprised it's number 1 but perhaps I need to go back for dinner to see why/ eat something more than simple breakfast fare.

Had the most amazing rakki cocktails, honey rakki with fresh orange juice is not to be missed, also delicious neat - they follow up the cocktail with a complementary shot ! Very friendly service, didn't eat here but they are equally generous with the cocktail snacks ! All for 4 euros each and a lovely sea view, free sunbeds if... More

Always a treat to visit Dimitri for Breakfast of cocktails. Friendly atomosphere. Lovely location. Service can be slow but we don't mind as goes with the Cretan way of life.
