This is a beautiful outdoor restaurant at the Europa Hotel in Olympia. The venue, with covered tables flocked with olive trees amidst a spectacular overlook. The servers were kind, and the food experience was incredible. We had a family style dinner, with 5 courses (bread,...sautéed vegetables w/ feta, salad, mixed grill w/ fries-chips, and assorted dessert of melons, strawberries and cake. Everything was very good!More

Wow, what can we say other than if you are in Olympia, stay here and definitely eat here! My wife and I were celebrating our 30th anniversary on a 15-day trip to Greece that we'd planned ourselves, so this was part of our itinerary and...we are so glad we booked time here! We stayed for just one night which coincided with my wife's birthday also, and had the most glorious meal in the setting of the Olive trees as pictured. The cuisine was exceptional, the complimentary dishes kept coming, the wait staff was attentive and gave helpful input when we asked about ordering a specific wine. It is such an idyllic, romantic setting. One of the best evenings of our trip and the hotel itself was ideally situated, very comfortable, with great amenities. We enjoyed the pool, and breakfast was equally delicious. So much variety, food quality was exceptional as was the service. It won't disappoint!More

We had an outstanding dinner there Oct 12., 2023. The service is impeccable. We had grilled sea bream and the lamb casserole. Both entrees were delicious. They raise many of the vegetables and lamb. That attention to detail shows in every delectable bite. Thank you...for a memorable evening in a beautiful setting. Martha Portland ORMore

Customer service is absolutely amazing as everyone fused to ensure we knew what to order and then followed up on our satisfaction. The Recommendations and quality of food and the cooking itself was truly without peer. We just kept on eating enjoying the flavours and...for the first time, I did not have to add condiments to enjoy a meal. The meal was pricey, but I would go again. We are only sorry that we were the for just the once night.More

Good food, great grilled lamb, and a location and sunset to die for! Our table under the olive trees was over the top romantic. Good service and wonderful grilled main plates.

We had a wonderful 3-day stay at the Hotel Europa. Our days consisted of a fantastic cornucopia of food at breakfast, followed by sightseeing, then swimming in their gigantic pool. Topped off by delicious meals at the Garden. What a venue, what fantastic food, what...excellent service. I can't say enough good things about the restaurant. We had Europa salad, sea bream, chicken and mushroom ravioli, zucchini croquettes and shrimp spaghetti. Also banoffee pie for dessert. They gave us some free appetizers and fresh fruit for dessert. Rick Steves recommended it as a splurge but I think the prices were very reasonable. You may want to reserve a table for the best view. This is what vacation is all about. Thank you Garden Taverna and Hotel Europa.More

Delicious food. Excellent service. Very happy. I hope to come back one day! I had the spring rolls which were honey glazed. They were great. Sea bream was fresh and tasty. The restaurant offered some treats such as small dips, bruschetta-like appetizer and fruits at...the end. I was really happy with the service. Can’t recommend enough.More

What a gem.....our guide recommended we come here as we were staying in the attached hotel Europa and we were not disappointed. The food was world class and the service from start to finish was outstanding. We cannot recommend the taverna highly enough.
