Me and my boyfriend visited this lovely restaurant for my birthday on 19/01/2015. We were unsure where to go as were unfamiliar of the area and had looked at other restaurants but none that appeared inviting or what we wanted, until we stumbled across the olive tree! The staff were incredible, very friendly and extremely good service. They knew it... More

The service was one up and we felt so welcome with smiling faces and perfectly plated food to suit all tastes. The desert was decent and complimentary and served with a smile. The fish was fresh and grilled to perfection. It made our day

Greetings from Manchester! We visited back in November, and made a reservation at the Olive Tree because we knew it would be popular. We were correct - it was very busy despite being mid-week and off-season. The restaurant itself is lovely, with a warm atmosphere. The staff were very friendly, and service was excellent, very quick and efficient. Paras was... More

We went there the first evening of staying in Bruges, we were suppose to go to another restaurant (following the advise of the hotel keepers). In the meanwhile, I was looking up some restaurant reviews in the city and stopped buy a nice review about "The Olive Tree" that was saying call first. Walking around the city, it was very... More

Some of the best Greek food I've ever had. The chicken was fantastic, as was everything else. Great management and staff. Beautiful decor and a great atmosphere.

The food was well presented and well priced for the obvious quality. We dined gluten free. The started of bread and olives was unfortunately not available gluten free. The waiter kindly provided us with a free desert for the inconvenience tho. We booked in advance which was a good idea as they were turning many people away at the door!... More

The restaurant is just around the corner from our hotel. The hotel recommended the Olive Tree, so we went. When we got there, the owner welcomed us, and told us to make ourselves at home in his restaurant. Anything we needed, just ask him. He meant it, and we had a wonderful evening celebrating our 36th anniversary. We love Greek... More
