Recommended by the Hotel as more traditional Greek and it delivered. The appetizers were very tasty. The house wine was very tasty as well. Maim course was the best part of the meal. "Giouvetsi" was very tasteful and tender. Sadly could not eT the whole plate as it was a lot and very good. (Picture included)

Poor service, poor food, over priced. Olympia town is 50m away from museum. Go there for cheaper options if on a TUI excursion.

This place is visited by tourist going to Olympia with tourism agencies. We were by our own and went there because it looks very nice! Unfortunately the staff was not very warm and on top of that... the food was very expensive!!!

Limited menu selection. Quite expensive relative to other tavernas. Speedy service. Portions were plentiful but pretty basic.

I was leading a tour of students and walked past the tavern. The woman kept bothering us to eat there and we did not want to. She proceeded to tell the group "are you not supposed to be a free people?" And then called me a "dictator". Of course you can guess my answer.

Friendly staff. Excellent greek style food on a perfect spot in ancient olympia. Cooked traditional food in a way how it should be cooked and served. A typical example of greek hospitality. Highly recommended.
