We've been in Olympia Cafe three times in two years. The food is the best we've had in Savannah. The service is extraordinarily good and friendly. We can't wait to go back. SUPER!

The best thing we ate was the fruit plate that was very ripe and delicious. The Greek food was a southern version of Greek food and not what I expected. Was our least favorite meal in Savannah and yet recommended.

As a Greek food lover this is a great place to stop by and grab a bite to eat to fulfill your Greek food desire you may have. Great location and atmosphere and real deal Greek salads and food.

The Greek dishes are usually very simple and inexpensive, the prices are usually low and there are no surprises. Often when I travel I look for Greek restaurants, dishes simple and natural, to avoid the pasta dishes.
