Olympia has almost as many restaurants as hotels. The ones on and just off the main street with large signs in English and German tend to have indifferent food and service; the Aegean, Zeus, and the 4 Epoxei (4 Seasons), are consistently better than average. The two restaurants of the Hotel Europa are far superior to most restaurants in town, but check to see if the excellent Kladeos restaurant has reopened. If you have a car, the family-operated Taverna Bacchus, some 5km (3 miles) outside Olympia in the village of Miraka, has long offered excellent country cooking. Phone first (tel. 26240/22-498) to make sure the Bacchus is open the night you want to go.
