Lovely restaurant with really friendly staff, food was excellent and atmosphere great. Make sure you book a table and don't miss the best restaurant in town when visiting Bruges.

My mum and I chose The Olive Tree as our last meal in Bruges and we are so glad we did so. Everything was delightful from the chilled atmosphere and friendly staff who couldn't do enough for you to the incredible top quality food! We had a mixed dips starter to share (definitely recommend!) and i had the grilled calamari... More

When in Brugge MAKE RESERVATIONS many restaurants have under 20 tables, Book or face possible disappointment. That said The Olive Tree is not to be missed, We were warmly welcomed and given beautiful menus with olive wood colors. So many tasty options. For starters I enjoyed the meatballs with tomato basil sauce, they were just delicious! My dining partner had... More

A very popular restaurant just off the main square, but not at all touristy. This is a family run business and it showed in the friendly and attentive service provided. Food was excellent. My wife and I opted for the sharing menu which was of an excellent standard with a wide variety of Greek starters. Main courses were also plentiful... More

We booked a table by email 2 weeks before we travelled and we were so glad that we did. During our meal many people were turned away as the restaurant was full. The quality of the food and the excellent service showed why this restaurant is so popular. Free cake and delicious coffee finished an excellent meal...the best we had... More

At first, the thought of eating in a Greek restaurant in Brugge was strange, but this was our second visit, the first was last November. This family run hotel offers superb food in large portions with the same service you would expect in their home island of Lesbos. There is a Greek guitarist / singer serenading gently during the unrushed... More

Despite of not having reservation, we managed to get a table. Staff, including owner were extremely nice and helpful (all fluent in English). Service was surprisingly quick. I have ordered for my main a squid which was extremely delicious. Olives and starter also were very tasty. I really liked that almost everything (tables, chairs, menu, etc.) was made of an... More
