Went Twice Because It's So Good

The Olive Tree brilliantly does the three things a restaurant should always strive to achieve. Firstly and most importantly the food.

This is wonderful Greek food cooked by someone who knows what they're doing, with simple, fresh ingredients arranged in a menu that is large enough to try different things but small enough to maintain a quality offering.

Tried to book a dinner here the Sunday after Easter...which was of course Orthodox Easter...oops. They were kind enough to email me back that they were closed for their special day but they would set aside a table for us on Monday evening. The food was top notch, the service was spectacular and the evening could not have been better.... More

Traveling with friends who were unable to get a table at The Olive Tree on their last visit to Bruges so we booked before we left and were not disapointed. The welcome was warm and as the evening went on we felt like old friends visiting their home. We decided to share the starters and was so glad we did... More

We booked into the Olive Tree after reading the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor & we weren't disappointed. From start to finish the staff were friendly and attentive. Both myself and my partner were impressed with the food. The portion sizes were generous & the quality was excellent. Like others have mentioned on here, we were given a complimentary orange...

A lovely atmsophere and brilliant service, not to mention the quality of the food which was excellent. We went on a Saturday night and would definitely recommend booking in advance, we booked ours a day early and were fortunate to get a booking, it's very popular. We were treated to great service as well as a free sample of a... More

Very busy on Saturday night so booked for Sunday instead when it turned out to be fairly quiet. Had the moussaka and swordfish which were very nice. Weren't planning on having dessert but got given some sort of orange cake on the house, along with everyone else in the restaurant! Service was fine. Very low lighting so it was a... More

We wanted to visit this restaurant as it was recommended on this site, we were not disappointed. Food was flavoursome, authentic and good portions. I will definitely return there on my next visit.

Centrally located, reasonably priced and very friendly family restaurant. It was very busy on a Friday evening so make sure you book. Very generous with a complimentary cake and dessert wine. The staff were very welcoming and we enjoyed our chicken souvlaki and lamb chops dishes. Perfectly cooked. An excellent choice for casual đining.

This pretty looking eatery was exactly what we needed. A family run Greek restaurant, which served tasty, well priced food, in a friendly buzzy atmosphere. Nice and light, well presented, with the bonus of a tasty orange cake on the house, followed by some lovely dessert wine, also on the house. A lovely chat with one of the family sent... More

Fantastic food, fantastic service. Thoroughly recommend. Food was top notch, service was very friendly and attentive. We weren't rushed out at the end. If we return to Brugge, I would definitely come back here.
