Olympia restaurant and bar in Lindsay is a very good Greek restaurant with great service and food. It is a good place to eat at if you have gluten intolerance or celiac.

I was there with my husband for lunch; I had the chicken souvlaki and he had the chicken club, both you could tell were made fresh, and tasted great. We both were pleased and surprised that they offered micro-brews on tap, and the olives and olive oils came from their family estate in Greece. The environment and service was also... More

When you walk in you feel like you are going back in time. While decor is updated and definitely Greek, it still feels like you are part of something that has been there for a long time. Hostess was lovely, waitress was super, food was good. Bit disappointed in Greek Salad, tomato soup. Large table of people and all were... More

We had not eaten here for at least 2 years as we were unhappy previously but felt it was time to try again. We both ordered the gyro sandwich. I had lamb and my husband the beef and... More

Food was good but typical Greek food at above average price, last time I checked potatoes and weren't so expensive and they serve a lot of that on your plate, sorry I won't go back

Near the end of a long trip, we were just looking for something basic but found much more. Good Greek dips and pita to start, nicely breaded thin schnitzel, spanakopita in a spiral, gyro wrap and a four cheese homemade beefaroni special of the day were enjoyed. Attentive and friendly service.
