We chose this place because all the popular restaurants had a wait time of 45 min. to an hour. We were in for a treat. We ordered a Greek pizza and gyro pitas. Wow! Everything was so fresh and delicious. The baklava cheesecake was tops. We actually went back the next day for the fantastic desserts.

We stopped by after a day of walking The Strand. It was a nice place to rest, grab a beer, and enjoy an appetizer. Seating overlooks the harbor and you can sit inside or out.

First of all the food was amazing, great quality and well presented. I would come back there again , but the atmosphere was not so great. Service was a bit lacking as others have suggested

This is a great freshly made Greek jewel! The food is good, the location is central, and the price moderate.

We used to really enjoy Olympia but the service staff have become complacent. After 20 minutes of sitting at our table and having three waiters walk by us, we actually had to flag one down and promise adoption to get the privilege of ordering. This has happened on numerous occasions this last year, and if the view weren't so nice... More

The food was good and the service was also good for our large party of 16. The view was great being right on the waterfront.

Went here for Mother's Day and only a third tables filled. Most there had walked in off of beach. Food was average at best, average atmosphere, average service, etc. With most of the non pasta meals at $25+, would expect more than plastic, faux wood tables, a big room filled with little more than tables and chairs, and little more.
