My boyfriend and I ate at this lovely family run restaurant, and so enjoyed the pepper steak we had to go back and both have it again! Absolutely recommended - simple, inexpensive, enjoyable food in a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. Definitely a must!

My husband and I came across the Olympiada Restaurant about 10 years ago and has become a firm favorite of ours. The owners - Bill and his son Jimmy - are really wonderful - as is the food. If you are looking for a traditional and authentic Greek restaurant then Olympiada is the right place. Bill with Assistant Chef Manolis do the cooking! Fresh produce is bought early every the morning. The extensive menu offers a myriad of flavours and textures. Geniune and authentic Greek cooking, all cooked on site. The menu is extensive which includes the more known Greek dishses such as Moussaka, Stifado, souvlaki, the ubiquitous Greek salad, fresh piping-hot calamari and offers different dishes not found on many menus - Pork/lamb in lemon sauce, shrimp saganaki (which is absolutely wonderful and is my favorite), Horta (a spinach-like green which is usually eaten warm with a squeeze or lemon and olive oil), home-cooked and marinated octopus salad, papasakia (an alternative to mousaka), grilled red peppers stuffed with feta, meatballs, dolamades, stuffed courgettes and lots more. The roast potatoes with a hint of lemon and orgegano are great. Fresh whole fish grilled to order!

Prices are very reasonable. House wine Euro 3.5 for half a liter and 6.5 for a liter. Starters between 2.5-6 Euros, Main dishes from 6-7 Euros. Greek salad with a generous serving of Feta cheese is 4 Euros. A whole grilled fish 10-12 Euros. Grilled jumbo shrimps Euro 8-10 and can easily be shared between two as a starter. On feast days Bill cooks something special. Last year on the 15th August he did a roasted loin of pork with a nice sauce made from the cooking juices; mouthwatering.

The service is prompt, attentive and friendly. Nice Greek music plays quietly in the background. If you want to eat authentic Greek food in a traditional setting - Olympiada is the place and, like us, you will find yourselves returning again and again. No language barriers because Bill and Jimmy lived in Austrailia for some or more 20 years!

Olympiada draws many repeat visitors from many different countries and is very popular with the locals too which is always a good sign that a place is good. Some people have been going there for 25 years and longer.

Olympiada is popular and on some nights especially in the peak season is packed full, however there is indoor seating in the airco where you can have a drink until a table become available usually within 10 minutes.

Olympiada is opend 7 days a week from around 11 a.m. until midnight.

Happy Dining.
