This was a wonderful meal in am amazing garden. Staff were so friendly and kind and could not have been more attentive. We had a holiday travelling round the classical sites in Greece. This meal was the most lovely experience, sitting eating good food in...such a pretty garden with lovely views. Highly recommend if visiting Olympia. The Hotel attached is also great and comfortable with a lovely pool which sadly we did not have time to use.More

Everything about this place is first class. From the welcoming staff, to the excellent views, the attentive service and delicious food and wines. We are ten days into our Greek holiday travelling to different parts, and this is what we have been searching for. It's...a little bit of paradise well worth the trip. The hotel Europa which I think is linked to the taverna is also wonderful. We will be backMore

We ate there both at lunch and dinner time. The atmosphere was wonderful, the view stunning, the food was fresh and delicious, home made and homegrown and the service was exceptional. We were served by Eleni who did everything possible for us to feel like...a special treat. We highly recommend this place, a top highlight of our trip in Greece!More

The reviews already placed leave little to add. We can vouch for all the 5 stars awarded. This is a place not to be missed when in Olympia. Fantastic location, great food, enchanting Greek hospitality at its best and excellent service 🤩 Just what you...need after having traversed the Valley of the Gods in sweltering temperatures 🥵 A tip for the coffee is the pomegranate liqueur homemade by the maitre d’. #placetovisit #placetobe #not2missMore

Must dine at this charming family run restaurant! Beautiful garden location in Olympia on grounds of Europa Hotel. View of sunset, cypress trees, olive trees and valley. Food was delicious freshly made Greek cuisine using farm fresh local ingredients. Servings were plentiful and flavorful. Restaurant...is own and run by a family and all staff were working together to make sure we were happy, well fed and treated well. Every table got complementary appetizers and bread as well as an after dinner aperitif and fruit on the house before we ordered dessert. Staff was warm, welcoming and eager to please. This is truly the best place to dine when visiting Olympia, the museum and archeological site. *****!More

We went to Olympia for 3 days. Our 2 nights we spent in the hotel that belongs to "The Garden". We ate both times in the Taverna! Absolutely delicuous food and a lot of different drinks! The service is very nice and they are friendly...and helpful. We even had the possibility to buy their home made liquors! They also offer fresh fruit after the main course. Big plus: they have tables underneath olive trees and the view is a dream! Sunset is almost better than in Santorini 🤭😉 Thanks a lot for the two wonderful evenings!More

We had a really nice meal here in terms of food, atmosphere and service. There is a nice grassy area where children can’t help but run about. Unfortunately, the manager on the night of our visit opted to pander to a request from another visitor...and asked our children to stop enjoying this space. Our children were only there because they saw other children plying there the night before. It’ was no big deal and they were very apologetic and sent us a complimentary drink etc,, but I’m going with an average rating because of this sour note.More
