I had never been here before even though I've passed it for years. So I stopped in and it was like stepping back in time in not such a good way. Service was a little slow but she was the only one and super sweet so I was was forgiving. The food was really good so I was forgiving. But... More

Olympia Restaurant is a little off the crowded tourist path in Orlando, but that is one of the nicest things about it. It offers a broad menu, authentic Greek and Mediterranean dishes, and excellent service. It was curiously quiet on the Saturday evening I had dinner with a friend. We indulged ourselves the Saganaki, a fried feta cheese appetizer that... More

I was on a mission. I wanted a decent gryo on a pita for lunch. I was driving in from Miami so Olymipia was an easy choice due to proximity to 417. The restaurant was darkish & empty at 1pm but the cheery waitress happily suggested their $5.95 gyros lunch special. Done! It was just what I wanted. An ultra-fresh... More

Genuine Greek food-- fantastic service. Not as fancy as many of the International Drive restaurants, but one of the best meals I've had in Orlando. Most authentic Greek food I've had this side of Athens. Calamari, roasted red peppers, to the authentic Greek salad-- chunks of fresh cucumber, tomato, onion and Feta. Chicken stuffed with spinach-- awesome. All served fresh... More

Wonderful meal, probably the best Greek Food on the eastern coast line. Service was excellent even the hosting when we came in, made us feel so welcomed. We later found out that their entire family ran the restaurant, hostess, service, cooks, even their parents.

A friend and I meet every couple of months for dinner. We decided to try something different and in the mood, went for Greek cuisine at Olympia. We enjoyed this very much as an alternative to our fine Asian choice.. The house wine was good and the ambiance decent but not great. Had fried goat cheese as the appetizer and... More

We love good Greek food. This was exceptional. Homemade, everything freshly prepared, except the moussaka, which must be made ahead. Salad was wonderful, and grape leaves were among the best we've had outside Greece.

We were looking for a place for a quick bite and saw Olympia as we were driving by. It was beautiful inside and the staff welcomed us warmly. The food was excellent and a reasonable price. Nice atmosphere and a very attentive staff.

My husband and I enjoyed a fantastic lunch today at Olympia and the only bad thing was that we waited so long to try them! Very impressed with the ambiance and authenticity of the restaurant . The food was the freshest I've had dining out in a LONG time. My husband loved the calamari...if you like calamari, (or any authentic... More
