Very good meal in this family run Greek restaurant. After a full day in Bruges it was a pleasure to relax in cosy, friendly surroundings. The staff literally could not have done more to make my family and I more welcome and comfortable during our meal. The fact that the waitress had to come and find us outside TWICE after... More

Outstanding experience. Been to Greece so many times and spoiled, when it comes to authentic Greek cuisine. This place didn't disappoint at all. Very welcoming atmosphere, fresh and high quality products and a nice treat at the end: coffee, tsiporo and dessert on the house. Efharisto!

On the assumption that you have had your fill of Belgian cuisine during your stay in lovely Bruges and you are now looking for a nice meal for the evening then The Olive Tree is without question one of the best restaurants to eat at. I have visited Bruges a few times and have sampled a number of the nicer... More

The wonderful welcome in the Olive Tree scoops you up at the door. I have eaten in many Greek restaurants and have always enjoyed the food, but, if you want the X factor then the Olive Tree delivers. Family run from the island of Lesbos, bringing with them homemade recipies, the owners of the Olive Tree have a passion for... More

Wonderfully friendly place with great food. Many items are naturally gluten-free or can be adapted. The service was exemplary and the food delicious. They even prepared, quite unsolicited, a delicious complimentary dessert as they had no GF on the dessert menu. Lovely evening; would go back. Be sure to book.

Visiting Bruges for a few days with friends. Didn't pre-book a table although we had spotted the restaurant during the day. Received a very friendly greeting from the staff and seated at a table on the upper level; the restaurant was busy but not full. The cuisine is Greek / Mediterranean so be aware of the liberal use of feta.... More

This Greek restaurant is run by a delightful, dedicated Greek family. They are absolutely charming and are so keen to make your visit enjoyable. The food is beautifully fresh and the portions very generous. We so enjoyed our evening at The Olive Tree that we went back a second time. I thoroughly recommend this restaurant. Worthwhile booking.

I never believe that my tongue can taste such a wonderful thing. The service is way different from other places in Brugge, that means way better. Paraskeyas has a nonstop smile, Aspa was there all the time to say a good word and Nikos was as polite as a very good chef . Try all appetisers , all of them... More
