This is a nice outdoor cafe that is less formal with a slightly more limited menu than Aiyaio next door. The service is also faster, so this is a great option if you're in a hurry.
Favorite Dish: Both the pizzas and sandwiches were great. The outdoor tables make this a nice spot for a Mythos as well!
We were happy to find this restaurant open during the middle of the afternoon. Our group split between Aiyaio and Top's next door. The pizza at Aiyaio was amazing, but we hung in there for the souvlaki. One warning is that it takes a bit to grill the meet. Make sure that you have time to enjoy the outdoor tables and the atmosphere.
Favorite Dish: The souvlaki was amazing. Absolutely amazing. Seriously. Just looking at the picture makes me hungry.
This is a small tavern in a small "hotel" called "Hermes" in ancient Olympia.
The food is ok, and the prices low but the portions are small the wine is pure vinegar and the behaviour of the son of "Barba Fotis" (meaning "Old Fotis"), very rude.
He attacked me shouting and calliing me "unacceptable" because I deared to complaint about the very small portions... He even closed the kitchen and said no more serving GO!
I am really ashame to say that I am of the same nationality with such - the least to say -unproffesional guys, but I want to speak out and say "no we can not accept this kind of attitude, oblige them to change or get out of business".
I was traveling with a group of my students and found that this little cafe' was open despite it being the late afternoon. For lunch, they served sandwiches, but not enough to feed a group of our size. The owner kindly recommended other restaurants down the street, but we returned - as promised - for ice cream after our lunch.
Favorite Dish: The pistachio ice cream was magnificent! It was inexpensive and the cafe had a few tables - if we'd had more time, it would have been a nice place to sit and enjoy the town.
Ouzo is an anise-flavored liqueur that is widely consumed in Greece (in Russia we call it “Anisovka”). The origin of the name "ouzo" is disputed. According to anecdote, this designation came to stand for "superior quality", which the spirit distilled as ouzo was thought to possess.
Ouzo yeast is then usually mixed with 96 percent pure ethyl alcohol, and finally sugar may be added and the mix is diluted with water, usually around 40 percent ABV.
We have tasted Ouzo in the restaurant of the Inomaos Hotel. This bottle was empty after enjoyable supper! But you may see our Ouzo bottle being still half full on my photo!

Most restaurants in Olympia are off the main road of Kondili. Many of them are not very good, a bit overpriced, and take advantage of the many tourists that pass through.
My advice - the smaller the better. The bigger ones are geared towards filling up with as many people as possible and care more about quantity than quality.
