Was here some years ago and it is still the same great place. Amazing coffees and pastries. A great stop while touring...unique cold drinks, ice cream, and so much more. Do not hesitate to stop at La Belle Helene, if you are in the area...you will be totally satisfied with the food and drinks as well as the overall experience... More

A typical Greek family restaurant. We ate here yesterday, and a wonderful experience. The food was great, the prices were affordable, and the owner was passionate about her cooking. Recommended.

The service is very friendly. We got a gyros portion, and it cost 7 euro. It was very large and tasted great. We liked it better than the other restaurant we ate at while there. There is free wifi as well. They accept credit cards too.

We were in Olympia two days and we ate here both days. The food is authentic and the owner said she makes everything from scratch. It certainly tastes that way. My husband loved his Greek meatballs. The owner recommended peppers stuffed with feta - which were so good. We also had tzatziki, saganaki, Greek salad and wine. Portions were large.... More

This small restaurant is operated by owner/chef Konstantina. She has a warm and vibrant personality who made us feel at home immediately. She served us excellent homemade moussaka, fish and a medley of fresh salads. She recommended a local Nemean wine made by a local vintner and served in a carafe and it was outstanding for the price. We enjoyed... More

You need to know that we've lived in Greece for 15 years, so we do actually know a bit about Greek food and culture. This Taverna is superb. We tried, but could not fault anything. Helene, would not serve us xorta or pantsaria 'cos it was not in season. The chips (patates) were perfect. Calamaria just melted in your mouth.... More

We toured Olympia and at the end of the tour we opted not to join the buffet meal due to dietary restrictions. We were dropped off at a street of restaurants and the first one we came to was very expensive and very crowded so we walked on to discover the most delightful family restaurant where there was no problem...

As we wrapped up our tour of Ancient Olympia we had a choice: stay with the tour group and ride the bus to a prearranged buffet and entertainment, or stay in the little village of Olympia to wander through the town and shops and grab lunch on our own. We opted for the latter. The buffet and entertainment with the... More

We were in Olympia for a convention and we were looking for a place to eat something not touristic. A local guy recomended it so we give it a try... we were amazed by the welcome from beautiful Constantina and her warm smile. She gave us some recomendations and we said ok...so trust her on that. For sure we going... More
