Awful Imitation of Greek – Wow, we love Greek food, but we were the only ones in on a Thursday night, two more tables came later, but it was 8:00 and empty. Should have been a clue.
I ordered gigantes beans, they were crunchy = not cooked. Then the $10 appetizer plate was three cubes of feta, two slices of Roma tomato and a whole bunch of green peppers and Greek olives. About $2 worth. The moussaka was dried out and had no taste, really inedible, and I ate only a few bites. The bright spot - my husband ordered lamb chops and they were great.
Good service, nice people, OK atmosphere, but I don't care for paper over the tablecloth, won't go back.
Try the kabob – Great Greek food! My husband and I went here looking for something different and we loved this place! The food was to die for and the prices were reasonable. PLUS they have a belly dancer !
a new favorite – On a Friday night, the place is packed! The entertainment is pretty good and the food is excellent. The wine list is quite extensive and everything is reasonably priced. My only complaint was that it took the waitress forever to bring our table our checks (there were 4 of us and 4 separate checks), my check did not come until later so the rest of the group had to wait longer, and once we handed her our checks and credit cards, it took 20+ minutes to ring up 3 credit cards and another 15 minutes for the fourth.
great food, but on weekends its another world. if u want to have an out of the ordinary night, this is it! – no other place like it in orlando.
no other way to explain it.
u have to go on a friday or saturday to understand! u wont be dissappointed!
Good, plentiful food (esp. lamb and beef), and belly dancing too! – Olympia can be a bipolar restaurant. If you arrive when there's no belly dancing or bouzouki playing, it's a very quiet place, with consistently good meat, and excellent service. Once the shows start, though, the place gets packed, despite it being as large as it is. So get there early, have some saganaki, order the Hercules platter, then kick back with some retsina and enjoy the show. (The lead belly dancer teaches classes, BTW.)
Incredible – The service was good. The prices were reasonable. Everything we ordered was fantastic. Get a bottle of wine and enjoy the evening.
Loyal clientele comes for standards at this out-of-the-way Greek spot. – In Short
The Vasiliadis family has been serving guests for over two decades. Some dishes have become local favorites, such as the calamari--fried and served with lemon wedges, onions and peppers. The Hercules Platter highlights Olympia's varied menu with tastes of roast lamb, marinated grape leaves, and spanakopita. Also included in the platter is moussaka, a hearty dish stacked with fried potatoes, eggplant, beef, and a bechamel sauce. Sticky and sweet baklava rounds out the experience.
