“Opa!”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

Olympic Taverna is one of three sibling restaurants in the Jensen Beach area. This one appears to have occupied the property of some food dispensary that had a drive-thru. The place is clean. The decor is modest. The service is crisp. The servings are huge. The food is better than our $$$$ former favorite in Alexandria, VA.

We had Loukaniko (sausage with orange zest and pita), salad (very fresh greens), Avgolemono soup (without diced chicken), Pastitsio (think tomato-less lasagne made with macaroni and bechamel), Mousaka (eggplant and bechamel), and Spanikopita (spinach phyllo pie) with lemon roasted potato slices and Greek green beans. And Baklava, the largest slice we have ever had in a restaurant. As we said, Opa!

We took home enough food for a lunch and a dinner. The only thing we didn’t care for was the green beans. They had been stewed in a tomato and onion sauce to overdone. We would have preferred al dente with some lemon juice and herbs. Really a tiny thing when the rest of the meal was considered.

“Eat Greek and Live!!”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

My husband and I go to this restaurant on an average of once a week! We love the gyros, the very special homemade Greek salad dressing, and their tzatziki sauce. The platters are scrumptious; and have lots of veggies too. We have lost weight (and loved it!!) by ordering Greek salad and the chicken platter, dipping the very lean chicken into delicious tzatziki sauce (a little goes a long way!); and the portions are so good that we often take home enough chicken for the next day's lunch.
EVERY member of the staff is hospitable; they help one another, and make everyone feel welcome. It's a real treat, and we hope they remain in Jensen Beach for many, many years to come.

Thanks for everything Olympic Taverna, Barbara Jeanne
P.S. We drive 25-30 minutes to get there, and it's well worth it!

“Great Greek Food Everytime at Great Prices”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

We have been to all of the family of Spiro/Olympic Taverna's and everytime the service and food are fantastic. We love the Gyro Platter, which always leaves us with plenty to take home for a meal the next day. Portions and quality are great - highly recommend. Even have fun bellydancing on the weekends!

“Greek Gem”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

This place was nicely redone after being a fast food place and is a welcome addition to the area. The food and service are also tops. I would recommend this to anyone.
