Pleasant Greek Taverna

Just had dinner at Savvios. Friendly courteous efficient service. We both had the special. Very good. Way too much for one person to eat. Consider sharing the entree.

We have lived in the area for a number of years and tonight was our first visit to this restaurant, I am sorry to say. This is a lovely place. The ambiance is really pretty. The service is the best we have experienced in Oliver: truly very good. The menu selection offers a great selection. There were four of us... More

Had lamb for dinner. It was a large portion and very tender lamb. The atmosphere very Greek. Thank you Savior for a pleasant experience.

The restaurant was very quiet. The waitress was alone that night but was very friendly and helpful. The food was great! We bought a dinner for two and could have easily fed four. The baklava was excellent! Had to go for a walk afterwards.

Read the reviews and decided this would be a good place for a dinner our while camping in Oliver in late Sept. Moussaka and Arni Pisto (braised lamb shank) were both delicious. The calamari appy was wonderful with homemade tzatizki. I felt (as others did) that the meat, potatoes and rice we all a bit under-salted. Service was friendly and... More

We biked all day and were really hungry. They welcomed a group of 11 of us at 7:30 pm called an extra waitress in (Danielle, she was awesome) who arrived in 5 minutes. The food was fabulous and plentiful. My husband and I had the appy platter for two and could hardly finish it. Their Calamari was amazing, and the... More

This place gets a bad wrap for all the wrong reasons: 1. People say his servings are too big. Really, folks? How can too much of a great thing be bad????? So many people say this. I guess it is the same as winning too much money in a lotto. Gotta give some back, right? Yeesh. 2. Service is great... More

It's been a long time since I've had such delicious (fall off the bone) lamb. My recipe for Arni Psito is for a roast leg of lamb but the Savvios version must either be done in a slow cooker or very low heat for a long time. I highly recommend it. My husband had penne pesto and I gather it... More

Located in the centre of Oliver with lots of parking. Rustic atmosphere with friendly staff. The food was a basic fair but lots of it. A reliable and consistent place for dinner. Prices are very good as well.
