This is deservedly one of the most popular restaurants I have seen. It was full on a wet Monday evening but there was a stream of people hoping to get a table but having to leave disappointed. The food was very high standard and the menu was willingly explained for anyone not familiar with Greek food. It would be very... More

I made a booking via an email from Australia and when we arrived at the appointed time we were welcomed by the owner and staff who were all so happy that someone from so far away would book and eat at their restaurant. The restaurant was busy and they had given us a table for 4 and we were 2.... More

The title of my review already describes the capability of the chef of this restaurant located few meters from the Grote Markt in Bruges. We had two starters, onion cakes with Feta cream cheese and fried eggplants with honey and sesam seeds, and two main dishes, fried calamari and prawns with tomato and feta cheese sauce. Let me say that... More

Researched a restaurant for our first night in Bruges. The Olive tree had good reviews on the trip advisor site. I emailed and booked a table a couple of weeks before our trip. I received a very prompt reply confirming my reservation. The food was excellent. Staff friendly, helpful and attentive. Overall a great restaurant.

We highly recommend this Greek restaurant, the food and service were exceptional, and such attention to detail. We were treated so well and wish we could have returned to try more dishes

Cannot recomend this restauarant highly enough. It was hard to get a booking - emails and calls didnt get us far. But persist! It was clear when we ate there that they fill up for the following night with reservations from those unable to get a table on spec - so call in and book for tomorrow. The food was... More
