“Awesome place, cant wait to come back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2010

I decided to come back to Olympia restaurant just to see if it was as much fun as 15 years ago. So I made reservation for a party of 10 to have my birthday party there. This one was the one to remember. From the wonderful waiter who eagerly made great recommendations to exotic belly dancing show to us dancing the night away - everything met and exceeded our expectations. This tiny tucked away restaurant is the one to discover. All my guests enjoyed the food, the ambience, the fun, the courteous staff - everything was a 10!!! We are seriously considering coming back again soon and having a New Year Celebration there.

“Terrific !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2009

I hadn't been to the Olympia in over 7 years so I didn't know if it was still at the former high level of excellence . I am happy to say it was even better than I had remembered! The decor was very tasteful giving you a great Greek theme throughout, the service was very kind and professional, the food was just tremendous in every way and the entertainment, if you go during one of the nights of the shows, was great and definitely put a smile on our faces! We drove over one hour to enjoy our evening and it was more than worth the effort! To my knowledge, it is the only authentic greek restaurant in the tri county area and one to not miss ! They can accomodate a sitting for two or a large group eager to experience not only a fine meal but a very entertaining evening! I encourage you to dine here to see for yourself that quality and value are still alive and well in the greater Orlando area!

“Family Owned & Operated since 1979”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2008

I saw a review for this restaurant and thought I should add my 2 cents.

According to someone else's review, the Olympia can not survive as a Greek restaurant, therefore, they play Spanish music. This restaurant has been owned and operated by the same Greek family since 1979. Passed down by father to his sons, these gentlemen continue to please the crowds that have come into this restaurant faithfully for the past 29 years. I challenge this person who wrote this previous email to find another Greek restaurant in town that has been open longer.

Additionally, you'll find several patrons in the restaurant that come in every single weekend. Greeks and non-Greeks alike! These patrons dance and often request other styles of music. Spanish, Greek, American, etc... The owners simply cater to the requests of their customers and that is how they've stayed in business this long.

If you haven't been there, go and try any of the entrees, have a glass of wine and be prepared to get out of your chair and dance. You will definitely feel the urge!

“Puerto Greekan dont expect good Greek food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2007

This restaurant is terrible and by far the worst greek restaurant in all of the Orlando area. Its food is poor and the decor is worse than the food. It obviously cannot survive as a Greek restaurant because around 8-9pm it becomes a puerto rican dance place. Its the most marketed greek restaurant but by far the worst.

“Not what you would expect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2007

I had not found a good greek restaurant that worked for me unil the adventure group I was with had Olympia on the schedule. I gave it a shot and boy was I impressed. Local, small, family owned restaurant but with wonderful (well priced) food, and a lively atmosphere (mainly on weekends). I was amazed how much fun I had, and the food was nothing to be ignored. It was the best greek food I have ever had the pleasure of digesting. : )
