We visited this restaurant purely on the reviews from trip advisor. This is one of the best restaurants we have ever visited!! The atmosphere, the service, the food- absolutely fantastic. The owner is very lovely, nothing was too much trouble. We wanted to try the whole menu!! Thank you.

We visited the Olive Tree on our recent trip to Bruges, purely based on the excellent reviews, and were not disappointed. From the friendly greeting, faultless service and delicious food, it was evident that this small restaurant is family run with pride and care. My husband was delighted to find a good vegetarian option, and everything we ate was first... More

I entered the restaurant at 6 p.m. to have dinner with my family. Quickly I realized that the restaurant was almost fully booked. Fortunatly it was soon enough, and they still had a table for us. The service was really helpful and friendly. As for the food... it was amazing! Everything was packed with flavor, and clearly without much salt... More

We noticed The Olive Tree as we walked past on our discovery of Bruges, then later looked it up on TripAdvisor and noticed it was high up on the list. We optimistically went without booking and it was full, had a half an hour walk and returned and the staff were so friendly and helpful they sorted a seat out... More

The environment is great and the people very friendly and helpful. Everything is 100% Greek, from the music to the products that are imported directly from Greece. Both the meals and the appetizers we had were delicious!

My wife Danielle and I love Greek food. We researched where to have Greek long before our trip to France, London and Bruges. We learned this was supposed to be the top Greek restaurant in town and it did not disappoint. First of all the service was flat out OUTSTANDING. Paris, the owner, and his family run the place and...

Forget all the tourist restaurants that are serving the same menu everywhere... The Olive Tree is amazing, wonderful home made Greek food at it's best, a great experience all round, cosy and so welcoming ... do not miss this family run restaurant when you visit Bruges you won't be disappointed, I just wish all restaurant staff were this friendly.

We visited as a group of 8. I had emailed prior to arriving in Brugge to see if they could accommodate my son's peanut/tree nut and lupine allergy. They got back to me quickly and we made our reservation via email. When we arrived we got drinks and several appetizers. The pita and tzaziki was amazing. Our main dishes were... More

We last visited the Olive Tree in December 2011, and found it to be every bit as good as ever on our recent return. The decor is very tasteful, and the whole room has a comfortable feel about it. It is a family run restaurant, and it shows. The service is ever so friendly, polite and attentive. Every guest is... More
