“Nice in almost everyway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

Great location, lovely people, good food just let down by the Proprietor smoking not only in the restaurant but also in the kitchen, although I have rated it very good I would not return due to the smoking issue.

“Tasty lunch stop”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

Whilst out for a long walk we were considering how far it would be to walk into Rhodes Town. Having walked what seemed pretty far in the midday sun, we came upon Restaurant Olypmias and, realising how hungry and thirsty we were, decided on an unplanned pitstop for lunch. A nice friendly welcome (common to all restaurants it seems, although maybe not to the same extent as others), left us eager to try the food which, on perusing the menu, sounded excellent. Plumping for a meze dish for 2 we were presented with soutzoukakia, spanakopita, saganaki, stifado, souvlaki, tzatziki, pitta, gigantos, dolmades, taramousalata and gyros - a plate fit for kings. I thoroughly enjoyed it although my wife discovered the saganaki really should only be eaten hot, and her view was the lamb souvlaki and pork gyros were a bit fatty and not as good as others. Given the location, it's an ideal stopping point if you're planning a walk into Rhodes Town, especially on a hot day.

“Friendly service and great food ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

Great place to stop for a casual bite to eat.

We were greeted warmly and got to choose from a multitude of dishes and mezzes. It was a bit off putting seeing the owner smoking in the kitchen but the food was some of the tastiest we'd eaten. We had a mezze meal of meatballs, moussaka and vegetables, each one a delicious treat and a great way to try a bit of everything.

We had such a nice time we went back the next day for salads, both massive and tasty.

One recommendation. The house wine is delicious. Try it! We had to ask for the name of it so we could pick a bottle up to take home.

“Greek Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014

Greek salad, Greek Mixed Plate and half bottle dry white wine. About €21 and served by Greek Waiter who was friendly. Watched the kite surfers, people walking past and the passing traffic. All in the open with a breeze and in the shade. Great hour.
