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.

We popped in for lunch during a visit to Corfu town. As there was heavy rain at the time we opted to dine within the restaurant, but there is outside (and covered) seating area for the more adventurous. My wife had the moussaka and I decided to give the stifado (a traditional slow cooked beef and onion stew) a try,... More

The food was very good here and the price seemed comparable to other restaurants in the area. The location is also really lovely. The only down side was that the service was a bit slow.

The restaurants on the main square in front of the old fortress were all so busy and overpriced so we ventured just ever so slightly into the beautiful wee town square. The menu and location of the Olive Tree won us over so we happily ate here. Our halloumi starter was quite rubbery and the tzatziki was toooooo thick and... More

I particularly enjoyed the quality of food at this restaurant and it has a good, central location and a good selection of Greek specialities on the menu. Although the restaurant was full, I didn't feel that the service was especially slow. The rushing waiters seems to be the norm judging from other restaurants here I have visited and it seems... More
