From arriving to leaving I was made to feel very special. I was eating alone so being made to feel special was the icing on the cake. All the Staff were very attentive. Service could not be faulted.

What a great dinner and service. Should be rank 1. Family own that really care about their customers. I had grilled calamari, done to perfection. My friend had the grill lamb, best meal he had on the whole trip. The wives had the shrimp and they said it was delicious. Free dessert, because the server brought me a beer late... More

Everything about our dining experience was great. We had reservations (which I would highly recommend as the restaurant is small and the fill up quickly). The menu had a lot of options and every plate that passed by our table looked good. I had the fried calamari which was amazing!!! After dinner, they brought us a complimentary piece of orange...

Ok, that may be a bit far fetched I'll admit, but to be honest this family run business is trying it damn hardest to get that title I can assure you that. From the moment we entered the restaurant to make a reservation we could see it was busy and they were fully booked that night. This wasn't a problem... More

Our party of 4 decided to eat here during our recent visit to Bruges for three nights. We could not get in on the Saturday night as it was fully booked … this gives you some idea how popular it is. We all shared a starter of meatballs, dips and greek breads… very nice, and everyone in our party enjoyed... More

The olive tree has great food, staff offered excellent service, but the best thing was the effort the owners put it to make you feel welcome.

We found out about The Olive Tree from Trip Advisor. Because I am of Greek heritage and this restaurant serves Greek food, I was a bit hesitant, having enjoyed very good Greek food over the years. Let me tell you that this is one of the best Greek meals I have every had!! So glad we tried The Olive Tree....wishing... More

The Olive Tree is a wonderful restaurant with excellent Greek food, excellent service, and excellent value for your money. The highly visible owner/proprietor of the restaurant makes great effort to ensure the comfort of all guests so as to maximize the enjoyment of the dinning experience. We tried the following: fired eggplant slices w/ honey - FANTASTIC!! You MUST try... More

We had a fantastic dinner at The Olive Tree after an afternoon out in Bruges. The staff were incredibly welcoming and brought us the menu and fresh olives as soon as we were seated. The food arrived quickly and was everything we had hoped for. The stuffed chicken was moist and tender and my partner had the grilled calamari which... More
