Have to admit that I did not eat dinner here but I did have gelato two nights in a row. Nice selection of ice cream and gelato and probably a good thing that I do not live in the area as I would gain weight. I would put this in my top two places to buy ice cream in Savannah.

We ate at the Express side of the restaurant. The service was quick and the gentleman running the grill was super friendly and nice. I had the chicken Slovakia and my daughter went for the cheeseburger (yes, at a Greek place) with fries. Both were really good and fresh. We topped it off with a couple chocolate chunk cookies. total... More

Came here with my husband and 2 children. Our server was very polite and accommodating. My kids ordered from the children's menu and my husband and I had the gyro dinner. Everything was delicious.

Who knew that I would have to travel to Savannah to get a good authentic gyro! We stumbled along this restaurant on our first night visiting and decided to stop in for a meal. Needless to say it did not disappoint. I had the most delicious gyro ever and my husband had the shrimp pasta. The shrimp was fresh and... More

The Olympia Cafe is an amazing family restaurant with delicious food! The Euros were out of this world! We ordered the 4 course sampler and got a little of it all! The service was over the top. We had Nadia and she was always at our table with a smile. She treated us like family. We will definitely be back!

I like the ambiance of the location, however with all the award they got I was expecting excellent Greek food. The food was honest and good, the presentation was not as good as the food. I got a Souvlaki and my wife got a moussaka. The moussaka was better than the Souvlaki.

Thank Djassfr
