This is a bit out of the way but well worth a trip for lunch or to stay if you prefer. It has a few rooms and a small pool. There is a terrace round the pool where you can eat and admire the lovely view at the back of the property. The welcome was warm & friendly and the... More

Very close to Ancient Olympia with signs to it in profusion Bacchus is reckoned to be a safe bet where you could end up far worse off! We had a very decent but unexceptional lunch. It is convenient...and that is quite important, but don't expect to be blown away!

This restaurant is in Ancient Pisa (Archea Pissa) outside of Olympia town, ideal if you are staying at the attached B&B/Hotel but otherwise you will need a car. The service is friendly and the menu looked interesting but the food was not as good as I was expecting after reading other reviews here on TripAdvisor. Good view from the terrace.

As we were staying in Olympia for a week we marked a few different restaurants to try. Bacchus is about a 10 minute drive outside the town. Our meals were just ok, starters were quite bland and only one of the mains was enjoyed, pork souvalaki was a little tough. The bill was under €40 for bread, water, 2 starters,... More

We stayed with the Bacchus Inn hotel, so this was our natural choice for dinner. The food was solidly tasty (even though not something exceptional) and it was delivered very promptly. The service was friendly and efficient. Highly recommended!

We stayed that the b7b and it was a real pleasure to eat in the restaurant at night. Every dish we had was tasty and well prepared. Good wine too!

We had dinner at Taberna Bacchus on our second night in Olympia. The food was good. Unfortunately they had run out of the rabbit special. We had typical dishes such as lamb baked in the oven with lemon and oregano, which was very good. Not sure why others said the wine was "weak," ours was typical table wine which was... More

We ate here many years ago, and looked forward to returning for their excellent grilled meats. They are now a pensione in addition to being a restaurant, and I think that the restaurant has suffered as a result. No more grilled meats or kebabs. Our salad and lamb were fine, but nothing extraordinary, and the house wine was weak.

Stayed at Bacchus and ate here. The food was very good and service great. Recommend eating here is you have a chance. This is an escape from the overly touristy Olypmia! It was a great dinner with a couple unique things on the menu.

This place is in a village just a very few km from Olypia but if feels like a whole different Greece. The view is amazing and the sounds on the poolside deck are fantastic, birds signing, roosters crowing and church bells (no busses!). The wine was good at a great price. My husband had the roast lamb which he thought... More
