What a great find The Olive Tree was. My mum, daughter and neice visited this week and were not disappointed. The warm welcome of the owners and the wonderful Gin and Tonic with Rosemary. It made a refreshing change to eat in a restaurant where the owners took such a prude in everything. Thank you the Olive Tree. We will... More

From the time we made our reservations (party of nine) to finally leaving late into the evening the level of hospitality and service was fantastic.The food was fresh and authentic, very enjoyable. We even had one of our party totally stun the staff by her performance of traditional Greek dancing, which meant even more hospitality drinks offered and of coarse... More

My husband and I ate here in October 2014. Delicious food, reasonable portion sizes, excellent service - the owner of the restaurant is very friendly. We were also given a dessert on the house! Located very close to the main attractions.

Best meal for me in bruges, Belgium. This Greek Mediterranean cuisine place is absolutely fabulous. Ambience is cosy, Service is warmth and the Food is Heavenly. I had the grilled squid which comes with potatoes, salad and long grained rice at the side. Presentation of the dish is so appetizing to the sight and the food so appealing to the... More

my husband and I are on our second visit to Bruges but had not previously visited The Olive Tree, however after reading the reviews we were curious - and we were not disappointed! The staff are friendly and attentive, the food delicious and great quality, the restaurant interior pretty and the ambience warm. We shared the meatballs to start, which... More

Celebrated a friends birthday here after reading the great reviews- we weren't disappointed. The food is lovely and we were made to feel very welcome. We were even given a lovely orange cake for dessert on the house. Would definitely return and would recommend The Olive Tree . Also just off the main square so very central.

Succulent, tender and soft swordfish was delicious as was the haloumi cheese. Owner is extremely friendly and goes out of his way to make sure you're having a fabulous time. Bill was very reasonable, portion sizes were big and service impeccable. Lovely decor, everything made from olive trees. Would definitely recommend.

Me and my husband visited bruges in August 2014. We stumbled across the olive tree when looking for somewhere to eat on our first night. It was amazing. Everything about it was perfect. We loved it so much went back on our last night. The service is superb and the food was to die for. It was so reasonably priced... More

this was our third visit here. The management and staff are delightful and helpful. Both had halloumi cheese which is our favourite. Lame for my SO. Pork Souvlakia for me. Both served with rice dish, potatoes and salad. A sticky orangy "sponge" is a complimentary sweet. All in all a good dining experience
