“Greek Food on East Colonial”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

I really enjoyed the Moussaka at Olympia Greek Restaurant on East Colonial. It came accompanied with a salad and string beans, and a beverage was included. Very tasty. Welcoming staff. Good value.

“The Best Greek Food EVER!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

We ordered a platter of different foods.Everything tasted so good.The grape leaves were so delicious,and the tzatziki -Yummie.Nothing like the other greek restaurants.So we asked the server and it turns out that they make it from scratch,all the way down to actually preparing their own greek yogurt in the traditional style.Overall we had great time,great food,relaxing atmosphere,friendly staff.We'll definately go back!!!
P.S. Look at the picture,it speaks for itself :)

“Greek Done Right”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

An icon of Greek food in Orlando, this restaurant provides great meals which are freshly prepared and delicious. The restaurant is unassuming from the outside, but beautiful inside. Plenty of easy parking too.

Belly dancing shows on Friday/Saturday (check before you go) plus professional and friendly wait staff make this a superb place for a real Greek meal.

“Great traditional greek food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Came here for a lunch on a Sunday afternoon. Despite only having one server and multiple tables the service was great and personable. The food was some of the best greek food I have had in a while and the pricing was great for Orlando. The Poseidon said was terrific.

“Pleasantly Surprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

We ate at Olympia on Valentine's Day. While we had reservations for 7:30 p.m., we decided to try and go early and then take in a movie. We arrived at about 5:30 p.m. and were seated immediately. The service was exceptional, too.

We had an appetizer and, realizing the size of the portions, asked if it would be okay to share an entree. This was not a problem, so we chose the Hercules Platter. I consisted of an array of Greek specialties and was huge! I cannot imagine one person finishing this plate.

Then, a belly dancer appeared...a very nice surprise. The show was nice, yet unobtrusive.

All in all, a very nice experience!
