Fantastic restaurant!

The food here is absolutely perfect. The portions are extremely filling and the hospitality is A1. This is a place you need to book beforehand as it is so busy. It serves Greek and Mediterranean food to an extremely high standard. Worth booking.

We were in Bruges for a few days for a special birthday for my wife. Based on excellent reviews on Trip Advisor, I had booked this for her birthday dinner. It certainly didn't disappoint! I was particularly pleased I had booked as I have never seen so many people turned away from a restaurant. The waitress had to be very... More

It's always tricky picking a restaurant when there are so many on offer. We chose to go to the olive tree on our last night as it was rated by trip advisor the second best out of 500 and something in Brugge. I guess I then expect it to be the best we had been to in our three day... More

The Olive Tree was a surprise booking for my birthday, and it was one of the best places we have eaten! The experience from the start was warm and welcoming, the restaurant is decorated simply with beech wood. It is family run and this is a definite vibe throughout the evening; the waiters were attentive and friendly, they even supplied... More

Delicious, authentic Greek food served by people who really seemed to care, and who were friendly and polite without being obsequious. Great location just off the market square. The best meal we had in Bruges.

Absolutely wonderful!!! We didn't realize you needed a reservation, but got there early enough and were still welcomed in. Ordered the dolma and sesame/honey feta for starters - amazing!!! Then had the grilled calamari and king prawns - fantastic!!! Particularly the cinnamon in the red sauce for the prawns. We were beyond full, but they then brought us a fantastic... More
