Our hotel recommended this place and it turned out to be good advice. Basic traditional Greek food but very well prepared and presented. We sat inside near the fire but could still see down over the valley. Friendly staff, efficient service and very inexpensive! The pork souvlaki was very good as was the rabbit. This was a very pleasant dining experience with traditional home cooked meals carefully prepared. This was followed up by a complimentary plate of fresh cut up fruit. A little out of the town of Ancient Olympia but worth the short drive.

We enjoyed our dinner very much! Such a relaxing beautiful view, sitting outside on the terrace. Food typical but well prepared.

As promised, we did return last night.
Erika, the English/Swedish proprietor, her husband and 2 boys were there, as well as other family members. The youngest boy was 6 months old when we last visited. Now he is four, and delightfully entertaining!
The restaurant was busy, even on a Sunday night in a slow season.
We had the grilled fish...the best we have had in 3weeks of traveling Croatia and Greece.
Ambiance was great also. Another wonderful night with personal service. It is nice to be the only Americans in the taverna and to be welcomed so warmly.
They had a good season at OThea...not always the case wirh tavernas this year in Greece.
Tripadvisor may have been partly responsible, but the food, view and warmth is the real reason.

Food is average quality. House wine not really good (for the price paid) and bread not really fresh. The overall experience is ok but does it really deserve a mention in lonely planet?

Food is ok and the atmosphere is cool, unfortunatelly they bring you a manu with pictures and suddenly all the traditionality of the place desappears!

Service is very slow, prices are great, very cheap!!

With a group of friends is fine, dinner for two better not...
