We had a great dinner. Service was good and the meals were excellent. Reservations are a good idea, and ask to sit up front in the restaurant. The restaurant is divided between a front section and a back. The front section is better. One draw back: price. But for this city, I rate this place very good.

After visiting Paris we wanted something a little different, and we found it at the Olive Tree. Great Greek food in Bruges! Owned and operated by a wonderful Greek family, the food was fresh and authentic. I recommend them highly.

Don't be disappointed and make a reservation. We were lucky and received the last unreserved table.(at 6:30) The food was incredible but was enhanced by the true hospitality and atmosphere created by the friendly and caring staff. In Bruges plan an evening here!

We loved this place -- the fresh food, the delicious wine, the friendly, genuine service... It's a family run establishment that serves authentic food at honest prices. Everything is made from scratch. The service can be a little slow at times when it gets busy, but you're on vacation, and it's Europe. Just sit back and relax.

The food was great here, and the staff were very personable. They came to check on us several times (this is not, unfortunately, very typical in Europe) and were very accommodating when we had special requests. The entire experience was relaxed, friendly and tasty. We'd recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We booked here for my husband's birthday meal because we both love Greek food, and the menu was inviting. The decor and fittings are really gorgeous - particularly impressive menus encased in olive wood covers, and intriguing olive wood candle holders - I wish we had taken some photos, but we were too busy enjoying the ambience and the food!...

Stunning food with a great menu with the most friendly family orientated owners and staff. The wife and I can't wait to go back (me for the proper Greek coffee) - I know it won't be long. Well done to all at The Olive Tree xx
