Taverna Thea is in the mountains in the little village of Flaka outside of Olympia. It took us a few attempts to find it. The tavern sign was is in Greek and our guidebook had the English spelling. Andreas, the owner, seated us on the...More

We popped in for lunch at Thea on a recent trip to Olympia. The restaurant was packed with locals and their families, with several generations all mingling noisily and joyfully. We felt like a couple of token tourists who had somehow gate-crashed a wedding feast...More

We enjoyed the seating outdoors overlooking the village of Flakka. The sausage dinner with fries and grilled vegetables was very tasty - would order again. The house red wine was inexpensive and delicious. The house salad was also good. We waited for the pulled pork...More

It is difficult to find anything good in Olympia. We went there on a Monday night; O Thea offers Greek food, I wouldn't say authentic, but rather tasty and fresh. As usual when you in tourist areas, ask before ordering fish or seafood, as most...More

We visited this taverna in January on the advice of the proprietor of Hotel Pelops, who said that many places in Ancient Olympia were closed for the season. When we arrived, we chose a table in front of the blazing fire on the hearth. The...More

I visited this place on the 11th of July, 2014. The waiter didn't bring me the menu, but told me "what they had". I was shy enough so I did't ask for the menu-big mistake. Finallly he charged us whatever he liked: 16 euros for...More
