This place is fabulous and has the best calamari in Savannah, GA. It is sooooo tender and tasty, one of the best I have ever eaten outside Greece. Very authentic Greek style. It is great as it has a sit don dining area and also a walk in/take away section next door. Beautiful food, good service and nice wait staff.... More

Right on the River walk. Not as a good as Leopalds but it is a close. The staff is very friendly. 3 places to choose from. If you are on the River Walk must stop by and get something from them. It is worth it.

It was a pretty cold raw day on River Street in Savannah. We ducked into the Olympia Café. He had a yummy hot chocolate and I opted for a body warming Mexican Coffee. Friendly folks, great looking pastries, and perfect drinks.

Relaxed atmosphere with friendly service in simple, warm surroundings. We managed to get a table for three easily on a busy Friday night. Several large parties also seated. Our meal included the best fried calamari we have ever had, great lamb chops, and excellent lemon chicken. Outstanding service. Overall the best quality to price ratio we have found in Savannah...
