We have just enjoyed a lovely lunch at this very pleasant restaurant on the square. It is in a very nice location overlooking the picturesque town hall with other local eateries within the square. For a reasonable 22 euros (about £16) we have had a drink each and shared a generous Greek salad and very tasty pizza. They tweaked the... More

Ate here on a trip into Corfu town this week...a little hesitant as we were the only people in restaurant, however there was no need to be. We put this down to eating around 6pm...not quite dinner time for the Greeks! Waitress serving was lovely and polite and nothing was a bother. The food was beautifully presented, very fresh and...

Visited for dinner whilst having a day out in Corfu town. From the outside it looked lovely and it's in a good location. The staff were lovely, but the food was a bit of a let down. We had shrimps saganki for starters, and when they came out there were several prawn shells and heads, but only 3 prawns. The... More

This restaurant looks like it should be excellant, trades on a pleasent location, and a menu that to be honest we should have walked away from! It was by far the worst meal we had in Corfu and the least friendly! out of 14 Trying to satisfy all comers is never going to work! when we spoke to the waiter... More

came across this lovely restaurant by chance in the middle of Corfu. Wonderful location, lovely service and great menu. We really enjoyed a nice meal in a very friendly atmosphere. Name matched with a restaurant in our home town of New Brighton, England (www.olivetreebistro.co.uk,) there must be something about Olive Trees that spells quality and value. Many thanks for a...

Very nice restaurant in the centre of town, visited even after some bad reviews had been left, we are so glad we did as the food and service was faultless, we used the Olive Tree on 4 occasions and were not disappointed once, the reviews that stated the service was slow must have visited when they were extremely busy, the...

Nice restaurant located in the heart of the old town. Great for a relaxing lunch. Friendly staff, but they were slow bringing out drinks. We had halloumi on tomatoes to start which I highly recommend and the salmon for mains which was amazing. I do think it was slightly overpriced though. Definitely worth checking out, but there are better restaurants... More

29 August 2014 Looked like a lovely place, however unless you are happy to wait ALL NIGHT to get your starter let alone the rest of the meal I would avoid this place. The service is what I can only describe as a random - literally. We were a table of 3 (me & my husband & 8 year old... More

We sat outside and ate here whilst on holiday. Service was good but we ate early as we have a toddler. Portions were decent size. Food enjoyable but no the best we have ever had. All round package with location bumped it up though. Worth a try.
