Description: People say that homemade food is the most delicious because it is made with love and ingredients of the best quality. With this in mind and respect to our local traditional recipies we cook everyday for you in our pension's tavern.Every plate we are preparing is made of high quality ingredients chosen every day from local producers. We are extra careful to the choises we make for the fresh vegetables and the local meat. Main Ingredient for the success of our recipies is the extra virgin olive oil of our production. Of course in our tavern there are many choises for our vegeterian visitors too.

This restaurant is in the middle of nowhere, but that's what makes it so special, because the view is absolutely breathtaking ! While waiting for food, the people were very nice and let us relax in the Pool , which also has a scenic view. They serve many Greek specialties, but they had a special "vegetarian plate" which I loved , because it was very different from other any place. Although, they have many greek specialties that will make carnivores happy and satisfied. They also had a range of fresh greek desserts ! The service was great, the food was great, the view was awesome, I really do recommend this place !

I was very glad we made the detour to have this great meal. Coming from Pyrgos, follow the highway past Olympia to Ancient Pissa (on google maps), then you can easily arrive to Olympia back the back road through the training center.
The place is great, offers splendid views, nice old lady + young smiling woman. Excellent meal of country Greek specialties (baked lamb) together with a fantastic vegetarian meal.
They were nice enough to let us use the pool as well which was the cherry on the cake.

An easy drive outside Olympia in attractive country, this place is nice without being special. The service was not particularly friendly and went way downhill after a party of 20 arrived. Excellent Greek salad, baked eggplant with feta and tomatoes, but disappointing stewed lamb - lots of fat and bone. The setting is the best part.

We stayed in Olympia, but decided to eat here after finding it listed in Rick Steves' book. We weren't disappointed! We ate on the porch, overlooking the valley. The lamb was excellent and we enjoyed the story the owner's son told us about saving the building from the fires in ?2011. Well worth the short drive from downtown Olympia!

This very simple taverna 10 minutes away from the town of Olympia offers a beautiful view of the countryside. The place is spacious and has a very pleasant terrace. The Greek appetizers (tzatziki, grilled aubergine, grilled feta and dolmades) were delicious. For main course mots of us ordered a rabbit dish which was excellent but tepid / a bit cold, which is why i don't give Bacchus a 5. The service was very friendly and efficient. Definitely a top choice for Olympia visitors.
