As we wrapped up our tour of Ancient Olympia we had a choice: stay with the tour group and ride the bus to a prearranged buffet and entertainment, or stay in the little village of Olympia to wander through the town and shops and grab lunch on our own. We opted for the latter. The buffet and entertainment with the... More

A local guy recomended it so we give it a try... we were amazed by the welcome from beautiful Constantina and her warm smile. She gave us some recomendations and we said ok...so trust her on that. For sure we going... More

I usually avoid writing restaurant reviews for average experiences but this will be an exception as we were disappointed, after having read raving reviews by others about their experience there. The restaurant is in the middle of a street with some other restaurants, typically set up with tables outside under cover, all vying for customers in what was a rather... More

This was the best dinner we have had in Greece. The lamb in olive oil, lemon and oregano was tender and flavorful and just delicious. My husband had the moussaka which was outstanding. But the best part of the night was talking with the owner. She was an absolute delight and really made the evening special. This restaurant is a... More

Very pleasant experience with freshly cooked traditional Greek dishes, and a few that were a tad unusual. (If you've eaten in Greece, you know that every restaurant in the country offers the same dishes.) This small family run place had cheerful service.

The food here was fine, but not super fantastic. We were in the mood for gyros so we didn't try any of the other dishes on the menu. Just gyro and calamari. The gyro meat was a bit dry. The pita and salad and tzatziki were good. The calamari was a bit too oily, but it was very, very tender.... More
