Fast seating, good drinks, good service, no pressure. We had an appetizer, a gyro, Greek salad, and the Greek fries - always my favorite. Reasonable bill!

My husband & I were in the area for a social, so decided to check this place out. Had the moussaka served with Greek salad & lemon potatoes, all excellent. They gave me enough moussaka for two more meals, which was awesome! My husband had the 2 piece chicken souvlaki along with the Greek salad & lemon potatoes. He was... More

I have eaten at Olympia many many times. Have not been back since it's closure. Driving by it and viewing the junk that is pilled up in the kitchen window, which is facing Portage Ave, is disgustng. It has always been an eyesore. I had hoped once the placed was ready to be reopened that would be taken care of.... More

I had chicken souvaki (sure that isn't the right spelling but it is early am), greek salad, lemon potatoes. Excellent potatoes, about three pieces of chicken on this plate and no tomatoes in the greek salad. Kitchen was off that day I have eaten here many times and it was much better. Perhaps difficult to get a table of ten... More

Temporary closure is over - family is happy. Good food, lots of it, and a reasonable price. Great staff and wonderful attitude. Go a little later in the evening to miss the rush!

This family owned Greek style restaurant has been in the neighbourhood for 15+ years and is a trusted favourite of the locals and well worth the effort to get to if you're from out of town. It's all homemade, the prices are reasonable and the portions ample. I guess that's why it's always got a steady flow of customers. You... More

Food was good and at a reasonable price. Had the gyro platter and the seafood wrap. Dessert was Greek and good. Service was fast, even if the place was full. Make reservations on the weekend!

We recently moved into the Westwood area and wanted to find a nice restaurant to dine at. We are sick of the amount of chain restaurants so we came across Olympia being a family owned Greek restaurant. My husband and I love Greek food and have been multiple times since discovering it. I have sat in for dinner during a... More

Four of us enjoyed dinner here. We were seated quickly, ordered appetizers and then our meals. Appetizers seemed to take quite a while though they were tasty when they arrived. (They were out of calamari ... A disappointment) The meals were tasty (gyro pitas, a burger and lamb chop dinner). Salads sides were fresh and Greek fries were tasty. Lemon... More

The abundance of yummy food was just what we needed after a 14 hour drive! Quick service, tasty greek lemon potatoes and pitas. Service was quite efficient despite a shortage in the kitchen. We would be regulars if it wasn't 2000 km away! Restaurant is right on Trans Canada if you go through town. it can be quite busy so... More
