The food, service and atmosphere are outstanding. Servers are knowledgeable of food and ready of offer an accurate description of taste and texture, if ask. The Olympia is one of our "must eat at" restaurants in the Savannah area.

We have been twice in last year and enjoyed both times. Portions enough to share. Husband and I shared a antipasto salad and calamari for lunch. Not crowed for lunch, but was Jan. so a slow time of year for tourist.

Of course it is right in the middle of the tourist area hence over priced for what you get but owners are involved with diners which gives a warm feeling and food is authentic Greek.

The staff are awesome! Very friendly and patient with explaning some of the menu items. The food was incredible! I tried an appetizer item that allowed me to try various Greek dishs and it was wonderful! (i.e. red cavier mouse, marianted squid, garlic mashed potatoes that were out of this world) Also..they have a less expensive Cafe next door that also had wonderful gyros. They have the cheapest fountain drinks I found on River Street. A medium diet Cokewas $1.50.

Late night dinner choice since we were down by the river. A choice that turned out to be one of the best meals we had while in Savannah. The food was fresh and good. I ordered the Gyro Salad and the meat was piled high on top. Enough salad for two people. Excellent value. Only downside was the restaurant was crowded and loud, but I would recommend stopping in. If you're in a hurry try the fast food stand next door.
