We stumbled across this charming Greek restaurant by chance and were very lucky to get a table. The owner was extremely accommodating and explained which items on the menu were gluten free. The chicken souvlaki was delicious and cooked to perfection. The accompanying rice and potatoes were also very well-seasoned. Greek yogurt with honey and walnuts was sublime! This restaurant... More

Very good greek food, nice deserts. The owner is very friendly and the service is also great. We were going quite often in the year that we lived in Brugge. A bit expensive, but maybe it is because it is right in the centre of Brugge.

We visited the Olive Tree on our recent trip to Bruges, purely based on the excellent reviews, and were not disappointed. From the friendly greeting, faultless service and delicious food, it was evident that this small restaurant is family run with pride and care. My husband was delighted to find a good vegetarian option, and everything we ate was first... More

I entered the restaurant at 6 p.m. to have dinner with my family. Quickly I realized that the restaurant was almost fully booked. Fortunatly it was soon enough, and they still had a table for us. The service was really helpful and friendly. As for the food... it was amazing! Everything was packed with flavor, and clearly without much salt... More

We noticed The Olive Tree as we walked past on our discovery of Bruges, then later looked it up on TripAdvisor and noticed it was high up on the list. We optimistically went without booking and it was full, had a half an hour walk and returned and the staff were so friendly and helpful they sorted a seat out... More

The environment is great and the people very friendly and helpful. Everything is 100% Greek, from the music to the products that are imported directly from Greece. Both the meals and the appetizers we had were delicious!

My wife Danielle and I love Greek food. We researched where to have Greek long before our trip to France, London and Bruges. We learned this was supposed to be the top Greek restaurant in town and it did not disappoint. First of all the service was flat out OUTSTANDING. Paris, the owner, and his family run the place and...

Forget all the tourist restaurants that are serving the same menu everywhere... The Olive Tree is amazing, wonderful home made Greek food at it's best, a great experience all round, cosy and so welcoming ... do not miss this family run restaurant when you visit Bruges you won't be disappointed, I just wish all restaurant staff were this friendly.
