Wow, had the opportunity to have lunch at this spot in Lindsay ,Ontario. Located on one of the major streets. Read most of the reviews and thought this would be a nice afternoon meal. Ordered a gingerale to start and it was at the end of the canister life. Absolutely no taste or carbonation left. Had to order bottled water which turned out to be the best item of our meal. At this point the pizza pizza across the street looked appetizing. The 4 pieces of lamb were so hard. There was two spoons of rice with French fries. The server could not understand 3 English speaking Canadians asking for 3 double espresso.
For tasteless food and a long wait it was $125.00 wasted dollars. Not sure if this was a one time slip but it was so bad that I would not go back or recommend.

Ordered the saganaki (cheese flambé) and it arrived lukewarm and under cooked. I'm used to the whole flaming table side presentation which is done at any other Greek restaurant I've been to. We both had chicken Souvlaki. The taste of the meat was good, and the tzatziki sauce was excellent. The chicken itself was small flat pieces like you'd expect in a food court. Served on a bed of bland white rice that was on par with Minute Rice, and served with potatoes which were alright. Our server lacked any level of personality but other wait staff seemed nice and were very accommodating/helpful when a guest in a motorized scooter arrived. Life is too short to bother with this place again. Surprised by the 4 star rating - must be the effect of very few other choices. Certainly not on par with any of the Danforth Greek spots.

The decor and atmosphere is casual and inviting. The food was good as well. The only reason I am giving 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the amount of lettuce in the greek salad. The brownie cheesecake dessert was very good!

I have eaten at Olympia several times. Its good and tasty greek food. For outside the city its likely the best you'll find. Their soups are creative and tasty, and the souvlaki was nice.

The only negative possibly a little more expensive than i'm used to, but not outrageous. I'll go back.

Have visited the restaurant for family meals and work functions. Great service and friendly owners... always feeling welcome. Great atmosphere with out door seating in the warmer months enjoying a glass of wine or cold beer or a lovely authentic meal of Greek food at reasonable prices.
