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...

I live 35 miles away, and eat here at least once a month. It is simply the best food at the best price in Honolulu. The chicken souvlaki is delicious, especially when paired with hummus and an extra greek salad -- I just wish they would bottle their dressing! Don't miss the fresh tomatoes if they have them.

Olive Tree Cafe delivers a quality product at higher than mainland prices. It has a limited menu so what they do, they do well. Nothing is particularly creative or unusual here but it is always consistent and tasty. You are also treated with respect and the owner is on site, all the time. Having said that, its as if Honolulu... More

Parking is limited, table space s cramped, street traffic is noisy--but don't let that keep you away from the tasty Greek food at the Olive Tree Café. Order at the counter and listen for your name to be called. It's a small menu at this family owned business where everything is very fresh and every item tastes great. Olive Tree... More
