Description: People say that homemade food is the most delicious because it is made with love and ingredients of the best quality. With this in mind and respect to our local traditional recipies we cook everyday for you in our pension's tavern.Every plate we are preparing is made of high quality ingredients chosen every day from local producers. We are extra careful to the choises we make for the fresh vegetables and the local meat. Main Ingredient for the success of our recipies is the extra virgin olive oil of our production. Of course in our tavern there are many choises for our vegeterian visitors too.

Why stay in downtown Olympia for lunch or dinner when you can drive here in ten minutes? Wonderful food, lovely location, a real place. We loved Taverna Bacchus. We had a special mezze of grilled mushrooms that was delicious. The chard in olive oil with local cheese was wonderful! Seemed like a great wine selection. And the view from the porch over the valley was gorgeous. It is nestled in a tiny town on a hill. Looks like it would also be a sweet place to stay (hotel is attached) if you had a car. Very enjoyable.

The tavern is located on the hills not far from the archaeological site of Olympia. The tavern is beautiful and it commands an excellent view.
The quality of the food is first class and the portions are big. Service is very efficient and the prices fairly low.
Definitely it's worth a visit..

We had our dinner here after the visit to Ancient Olympia. The view of the mountain is great, the waitor is friendly, the house wine is good, the traditional greek cuisine is an average.

Came here at the recommendation from a researcher who has visted Olympia frequently and was wonderfully surprised that the recommendation was indeed worth the short trek up from the town of Olympia. The specials are the way to go as there is always fresh food coming in to the taverna. Overall great Greek food and a wonderful view to go with it!

This taverna is in ancient Pisa, a small hilltop village not far from Olympia. Signs for it are everywhere in the Olympia villlage, and we did long to escape so we tried it. The place is fairly attractive, Food and service were rough-and-ready but real-seeming.
