We found this restaurant quite close to our hotel and just walked over. While we were visitors the table next to us seemed to be regulars and known to the staff. One got the impression that people visited quite regularly. Food was quick to be served and staff were very pleasant.

Food: we shared the house special pizza - it came out hot and really tasty. Can't comment on the other food because that's all we had

I had an Italian sausage and red pepper pizza. The crust was way too thick and the toppings, with cheese, all blended together into a tasteless mess. Doughy. Spent the entire night trying to digest this sodden mess.

Ordered the chicken souvlaki for take out. Chicken was moist and delicious. The potatoes were marinated in lemon sauce and we're the bomb. Fresh greek salad. Overall it was a huge order for $15.95. Didn't even come close to finishing it.

My wife and I visited Olympia restaurant on September 27th. The location is okay... parking is always a challenge in the area. The restaurant is dated but has its own old country charm. The staff were friendly and the service was good. The food on the other hand was incredible! The portions are large, the flavours are amazing and its... More

We went for dinner and sat in their outdoor patio. The server was friendly and courteous and service was prompt. Our meals were huge and delicious. The portions are very large and one meal could be shared. The baklava was yummy.

Our second meal here however disappointed with the dinner we were served. Moussaka very dry yet at a previous lunch it was much nicer. Could it have been fresher at lunchtime ???? I don't know but it was better last time that's why we returned.

you come across a little nugget of local flavor that is 'just right.' This is what we discovered when we ambled into Olympia Restaurant. The fried cheese was excellent, as well as the rest of our dishes. The portions were generous and the price was right! We especially enjoyed knowing it was a neighborhood, locally owned place where friends and... More

Popped in for lunch - pleasantly surprised by how fresh and delicious this Greek goodness was. Will be back. Service was really slow, but not so much to be a deterrent. Appears to be family run and independent as well. One of those places you feel good supporting!

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
