The place was quaint and and busy for a Sunday at noon. The waiter was nice and the food was good . Gyros is a must at Greek restaurants and this did not disappoint us. The interior was a little dark for my liking but the prices and service was excellent.

Sometimes tourist spots are just so-so for ethnic food. Olympia Cafe on the riverfront in Savannah is a special exemption from this rule. The atmosphere is ideal and the food spectacular. The owner and host, Nick, offers special additive value explaining his own background in Greece and where recipes derive. The seafood is especially well prepared. A big thumbs up... More

While it may not be top shelf Greek food, it was decent. I would probably eat it again. The portions are adequate especially with the other stuff that gets included (bread, etc.). Everybody in my group was satisifed.
