We have been going to Olympia Diner for years. In my opinion, it is the best Greek restaurant in the city. The owners' motto is "quantity and quality" and they set the bar for standards. Food is always fresh, delicious and very generous portions. Prices are moderate. All this and the friendliest, sweetest food servers anywhere.

We are regulars here for their calamari and Tziki sauce. This is the best place in Winnipeg for calamari - they make it with a light batter and cook it just right. I have never had a single piece that was the least bit chewy, and calamari is difficult to make this way. The whole meal was well presented and satisfying, the cost was reasonable and the service was friendly and personable. The only "problem" with this restaurant is that it is small and popular, so a reservation is usually a very good idea.

For a party of eight, two of us had to wait an extra 20-25 minutes to get our main course while everyone else was served. There was nothing to make up for it, such as a reduction in the bill or a free drink, much less an apology. The service in general was quite slow, often taking a long time and reminders to do simple things, such as bring a wine glass.
The food itself, while not bad, was no better than average.
I would not go again.

We went for a family birthday party so there were 8 of us. You need reservations as this restaurant is so popular and we saw why. Our meal, including appetizers was nicely spaced out.

Our family raved about the calamari. I was disappointed because I wanted to order the Mediterranean chicken but could not as they ran out of chicken breasts. The greek salad was excellent and had lots of Feta Cheese, the lemon chicken soup was also very good. Their garlic toast is to die for---buttered on both sides and tons of flavour. I will definitely go back, even if it is to try the Mediterranean chicken.
