Such a friendly enthusiastic place

We had a great evening here - we chose the 'Menu for Two' with mixed starters and then a main of choice. The food was great and the staff were so very friendly, and passionate about all things Greek. A lovely place to go.

I had a lovely meal here; it was a nice break from Belgian food, which I find rather heavy and boring. The staff were super-nice to me.

Amazing Greek restaurant! I have been to different restaurants that do this kind of food, but this one has a very high standard. We ordered the Dolmades, a chicken souvlaki and some Mousaka. One would think that you can order that in any greek restorant, but there, everything was sooo tasty! I usually don't like the Dolmades, but those one... More

I read up on restaurants before travelling to Bruges and when search I came across The Olive Tree. I was in Bruges with my girlfriend and we tried to avoid going to any places directly on the main market square but from our receptionist this was definitely the place to go. I booked a table over the phone and had... More

Lovely food, attentive staff and even got free orange cake with chocolate sauce & a glass of dessert wine. A lovely restaurant with fresh home cooked food definitely worth visiting.

We have just returned from having dinner at this restaurant. Having read the reviews on trip advisor I can only agree that the food was amazing, service suburb and we were surprised how the low the bill was for the quality of the evening. Great place & you will not be disappointed if you decided to try it out

I must admit coming from Melbourne Australia, where we have the biggest Greek population outside of Athens, this restaurant had a lot to live up to. We had been travelling for a while and really did feel like something a little different for dinner other than french, italian style food. Honesty I did not have great expectations of terrific Greek... More
