This restaurant was recommended by two separate local vendors for authentic Greek home cooked meals. Not your tourist spot. It was the best recommendation we could have. Good and service excellent and succulent!

After a week of gyros, souvlaki, etc. we found this great restaurant in Olympia Greece. The Aegean Restaurant is just a few paces off the main street through town (E-55) under a canopy formed by large overhanging trees. The homemade beef stew (local, we're told) on rice was tender and seasoned perfectly. It's just like mama made; no pale, crock pot facsimile here. The cabbage rolls were also delicately-flavored in a bechamel sauce that wasn't too rich.

The evening was topped off with homemade baklava, strong coffee and Statnis brought us some apples with honey and cinnamon. The price was moderate.

The service was prompt and friendly. As the tables filled during the dinner hour, we noticed the pace of service was calm and efficient.

You won't go wrong here.

After several stops in Greece, there was nothing better than the food and hospitality in Olympia, Greece than the AEGEAN Restaurant! All dishes made from the kitchen (not a microwave), serviced by great staff with an absolutely magnificent atmosphere. The menu is as advertised from the street, but also joined by great company from staff and even local historians! I had the pleasure of enjoying a meal/drink with my father, to then be acknowledged by the owner/ staff with great conversation and memories to last a lifetime! To ignore or not put the AEGEAN restaurant on your trip agenda to Greece, is doing yourself a great disfavor! As a traveler from Kansas City, MO, I consider this place to be one that nobody knows, but should! I was referred by the Amalia Hotel (also a must in Olympia travel) to see George and I recommend you do too!
Thanks George and staff to a great experience!

We ate at the Aegean Restaurant twice a day for a week and never had anything we didn't like! We tried appetizers, Greek dishes of all descriptions, and pizza. The cook, Georgia, is amazing! She is assisted by two helpers, but makes all the main dishes herself. My mouth is watering just thinking about the food!

During our day trip to Olympia, our wonderful driver Andreas took us to this wonderful restaurant. We enjoyed every dish that was brought to us, as well as the wine that accompanied the meal! All while enjoying sitting under the tree looking at a beautiful town! Thank you George for the personal service and the little extra at the end! Great Food.....Great Restaurant!
