Beware! If there is no parking behind the restaurant, do NOT PARK AT McDonald's even if you buy drinks! They will boot your car immediately and it will cost you $75 to get it free. Don't worry, the jerk never leaves the parking lot! He's there to take your money! Otherwise, the food is great! I always have the calamari... More

Have been here twice and both times found the food to be ok, very much on the greasy side but a decent value for the money. Certainly not the best green food in town but ok for a quick fix.

I had not been here in a while and was pleasantly surprised by the food which was very good. The management offered me to try the hummus and I was good because it was made from scratch.

The Olympia was not quite as good as I remember it being, but it was still very good. We were not sorry that we came here. I didn't hear any complaints from our group. I think that everyone enjoyed their food.

Fantastic authentic Greek food. Gyros, lentil soup, and tabouli salad all are excellent. Prices provide good value. The facility is dated, but clean. This restaurant appears to be family operated.

A very nice Greek restaurant I enjoyed munching on my gyro - so tasty. I also appreciated the decor of photographs and maps of Greece. A great lunch.

Started off bad having to pay for parking and then got worse. . The skewed lamb was minimal portion for the price and overcooked. Black atound the edges. The cook who barks out the numbers needs a lesson in courtesy.

We didn't feel like a huge dinner so we stopped by for a Gyros. The staff and service were great, very fast. The restaurant was clean and pleasant. The Gyros were very tasty and flavorful, tender meat, good sauce.

The Olympia Cafe looks ratty on the outside, and it doesn't always feel clean inside. Parking in the chaotic lot out back can be impossible. Basically, it's a joint catering to the university crowd. That said… eating the Olympia Cafe's gyros sandwich on pita is a heavenly experience. That's actually all we've ever tried there, so I can't comment on... More

This is a great place to get a fantastic Greek lunch. Just across from the UNM campus. Not fancy with great prices. If you are craving Greek food this is a good choice. My son said it was as good as the food in Athens.
