THE MEDITERRANEAN DIET IS OUR SECRET
Greek cuisine is known around the world for its taste, its variety and its nutrients. At "The Garden" we have as our philosophy the Greek Mediterranean diet with the utilization of pure Greek products of the countryside. Most of the raw materials are of our own production, such as the fine olive oil, the vegetables, the herbs from the privately owned orchards, located on the banks of the Alfeios River, the meat of the domestic pig, eggs and more. Our chef, using these pure and fresh ingredients, uniquely marries the gastronomic heritage of Greece with a modern, light note.
The leading Greek traditional tavern of Ancient Olympia "The Garden" is located in our hotel, in an idyllic green natural environment with a wonderful view of the valley of the gods. It is a tavern that is offered both for customers who want to taste the uniqueness of Greek cuisine and for lovers of gastronomic "discoveries" and taste requirements. With delicious traditional dishes with Mediterranean touches and a la carte Greek cuisine, incorporating pure ingredients and meticulous raw materials, it manages to pleasantly surprise every palate.
Europa hotel is owned and run by George Spiliopoulos’ family. Our fundamental mission is to be an integral part
of the local environment, history and economy.
We support the local economy, respect the historical features and environment of our region.
The secret for our cuisine: The mediterranean diet.
We use our own home grown ingredients.
The vegetables, herbs, eggs and pork come from the hotel’s own local farm on the banks of the Alphios river.
Finally, the excellent olive oil comes from our family’s local olive groves.
