The restaurant was recommended by Theo at another hotel. It was a very nice experience for so many reasons. I suggest that you simply drive up the road or walk from your room at the Europa. My goodness, the staff could not possibly be kinder. Our waitress was so wekcoming I wanted to hug her. The food was good and... More

It is the restaurant of Europa Hotel. One may expect that being a hotel's restaurant it would lack quality and character. Not! This is a splendid restaurant! Its location is unique, overlooking the plains, the fields and the trees of Olympia region! When we first arrived the view -just before sunset- was like being in Toscane, Italy! The food was...

The restaurant is located in a picturesque location overlooking the fields and mountains. The tables are located in real garden. Olives, figs, apples, pepper bushes and branches basil. Very polite waiters. Perfect food! Mousaka was really tasty! Steak was tender! We all loved it!

This is a great restaurant, and even more impressive when you consider it is a Hotel restaurant. It is on the hill overlooking the entire town, with an amazing view as the sun starts to set. If the view doesn't get you, the food and service will.Everything was extremely fresh. My husband had the Sea Bass and it was perfectly... More

I was surprised by the quality and quantify of the food. One of the greatest places, I've ever been. I would describe it as "must-do" if you decide to visit Ancient Olympia.

You are seated in an olive grove and garden. The view of the valley is wonderful. The atmosphere is fantastic. The service is first class and the food matches everything else. Eat here!

One of the great pleasures of staying at the Best Western at Olympia is the wonderful outside taverna on the bluff overlooking the town. The food is as good as you'll find in Greece and the views at sunset are breathtaking.

Very nice olive (mainly) garden, clean, and nicely decorated. Nice view and sunshine. The portions were very big and the greek ntakos salad one of the best I've ever eaten. Very good prices for the bottle wines.

We stayed at the Best Western Europa and I had read the reviews on Taverna the Garden before arriving. So we booked dinner reservations for the one night that we stayed in Olympia. Such a beautiful restaurant over looking the valley. The food and service was excellent. I had the beef tenderloin and it was perfect. A perfect medium rare... More

pretty good meal, but totally surpassed by the view. Make sure you are there for sunset and while most tables have an amazing view if you are organised it would be great to book one of the tables on the edge. We were not staying at the hotel and when we told the waitress that we were staying at one... More
