Decebt, Greek, middle Eastern food

A very good, unpretentious little spot, often the victim of their own success. Kind of middle of the road price wise, but you are sometimes surprised at how little you get for your money

Olive Tree Cafe is consistent and the food is good. If you don't bring your own bottle of wine, there's a wine store next door which makes it convenient. The staff is good, the place cheerful and has a pleasant Greek atmosphere. It's only open in the evenings and you don't need reservations.

Delicious food!! So good, and very vegan/veg friendly. But be prepared for busy tables and crowded outdoor seating. The place always fills up, so I suggest going early. Also, cash only!!

After a long, tiring day relaxing my wife and I took the 20 minute drive from downtown Waikiki to get some take-out from Olive Tree Cafe. It was crowded and the parking lot is a little small. We were both pleasantly surprised at the authentic taste and quality of the food. The stuffed grapes leaves were the best I've had... More

A lovely homely little Greek Restaurant that really serves up great authentic Greek food. Situated in a tiny mall, where you order your food inside and clear up your own tables afterwards. You will not be disappointed as you share the wonderful food with the locals. The place is not licenced so BYOB or buy from the liquor shop next... More

After getting great reviews from a local we decided to give this place a try. It is located in a small strip mall and is right next door to a liquor store. This is important because it is BYOB. The restaurant has a few tables inside and a patio area with lots more seating. The place is cash or check... More

We had just arrived from the mainland and were staying close by. Very friendly and responsive staff in this simple but very popular (particularly with locals) cafe. They do not serve wine and beer but there is a place literally next door that does. The cafe provides openers and glasses. The food was OK but small portions even for us... More

The Olive Tree at the corner of Pahoa and Kilauea and the edge of Kahala Mall prides itself on slow food. It has a limited Greek menu, but deliciousness trumps limited choices. You are welcome to bring your own beer or wine, but pay a very slight charge for glasses. If you forgot the libations, the Olive Tree has its... More

We make sure we eat here every time we visit Waikiki.... Wow fresh delicious food the best meal we have had ever on numerous trips to Honolulu. Order ahead to go if you want to avoid the wait/line then can still choose to eat there. Well worth the drive from Waikiki. Best chicken souvlaki, tabouli salad and their dressing is... More

Olive Tree Cafe is located next to McDonalds Kahala Mall. They will be celebrating their 20th year in business this December 2014. Parking is limited (better to park at the mall and walk over) and there is usually a line of customers. But service is fast, you order and pick up food yourself, and you can BYOB. A wine shop...
