Description: "ΟΛΥΜΠΙΟ" situated next to the picturesque harbour (Limanaki beach) of Makry-Gialos. Fresh food and drinks, like Breakfast, Omelets, tasty snacks, the best Greek and Cretan salads, served all throughout the day. At the hot summer nights the great "Mythos" draught beer and cocktails always served with tradition appetising nibbles. Altogether a very pleasant cafe bar with a relaxing atmosphere and good wheelchair access. Chara and Dimitri are your hosts. Welcome.

Reviewed 10 October 2010

This lovely café bar, situated on the picturesque harbour of Makry-Gialos, serves excellent food and drinks. Hosts Hara and Dimitri prepare all the food, full English Breakfasts the best Greek salads, made in various ways to suit all, and tasty snacks served throughout the day. Prices held at last years cost. All this and great draught beer and cocktails always served with tradition appetising nibbles. Altogether a very pleasant café bar with a relaxing atmosphere and good wheelchair access.

“dimitris and his pets”
Reviewed 4 October 2010

I have been coming to Makrygialos for many years and always like to go to Cafe Olympio.Over the years I have seen many changes to Olympio.Dimitris and his wife Chara have extended and improved it dramatically.Every Monday night there are the Snail Oympics where snails race and you choose who you think will win. In return you will receive a photo of your win and it will be on their website. There are also the cats .Dimitris always a cat/cats which he likes although he pretends not to! Please visit this wonderful south east corner of Crete if you havent already done so. Ibeautiful scenic and relaxing. You will always receive a very warm wecome.
