The Olympia was not quite as good as I remember it being, but it was still very good. We were not sorry that we came here. I didn't hear any complaints from our group. I think that everyone enjoyed their food.

Fantastic authentic Greek food. Gyros, lentil soup, and tabouli salad all are excellent. Prices provide good value. The facility is dated, but clean. This restaurant appears to be family operated.

A very nice Greek restaurant I enjoyed munching on my gyro - so tasty. I also appreciated the decor of photographs and maps of Greece. A great lunch.

Started off bad having to pay for parking and then got worse. . The skewed lamb was minimal portion for the price and overcooked. Black atound the edges. The cook who barks out the numbers needs a lesson in courtesy.

We didn't feel like a huge dinner so we stopped by for a Gyros. The staff and service were great, very fast. The restaurant was clean and pleasant. The Gyros were very tasty and flavorful, tender meat, good sauce.

The Olympia Cafe looks ratty on the outside, and it doesn't always feel clean inside. Parking in the chaotic lot out back can be impossible. Basically, it's a joint catering to the university crowd. That said… eating the Olympia Cafe's gyros sandwich on pita is a heavenly experience. That's actually all we've ever tried there, so I can't comment on... More

This is a great place to get a fantastic Greek lunch. Just across from the UNM campus. Not fancy with great prices. If you are craving Greek food this is a good choice. My son said it was as good as the food in Athens.

This Greek cafe won't fascinate you by its exterior and interior - it looks shabby, but their food is really good and prices are decent. The owner should make some renovation and then it'll turn into a trully wonderful place to go with your family.

While visiting Albuquerque, NM., with my family, we visited the Olympia Cafe for lunch. There were 3 of us. The Olympia Cafe was a breeze of fresh air. The food was delicious and fresh. I ordered the lamb, with rice and a side salad. It was delicious! The salad greens were so fresh, it tasted like they were just picked... More
