I hadn't the faintest idea what to expect as I know nothing about Greek food. One thing was clear, the level of happiness in this place is top notch. Always smiling, always friendly. Regularly inquiring if all is well, that's service to the highest level. The food was great, special but rather lukewarm. I don't know if that's intended to... More

Outstanding greek. Price fix appetizers with choice of main courses is way to go after a busy day of exploring Brugge. Enjoyed tender lamb, vegetarian mousaka and prawns, all superior. Complementary porto at the end. Perfect

Conveniently located just off the Market Place on Wollestraat, I was a little sceptical (I tend to look for places away from the main tourist spots for better value and food). However, I was very pleasantly surprised to find one of the best Greek taverna anywhere, not just in Bruges. The food and service was excellent, and the house wines... More

Excellent food, this place is well worthy of its rating. They managed to fit us in at short notice and we were not disappointed. The portion size was generous and the food was very tasty. The level of service did decline, but to be fair, the restaurant was rammed. Would definitely visit again.

Lovely restaurant. They hadn't received my email booking (as I had only emailed a couple of hours earlier) but they couldn't have been more welcoming. Very friendly staff. And although we didn't particularly deserve it they gave us dessert and wine on the house. A lovely treat.

Small restaurant with lots of olive wood around. Very good Greek food. Pleasant staff. Best gin and tonic I've had for a long time.

If you like Greek cuisine, this is your place. Not everybody likes Greek style of cooking, as it has its own special taste, but if you do, or you're willing to try that's the place in Bruges. Service is simply perfect, one of the best I've seen and I've seen many as I travel a lot. Enough said. The only... More

We needed a change and it was a pleasure to be served very good food in lovely surrounding by staff with energy, enthusiasm & flexibility. Greek so a change from the programmed personalities of the Germanic type Belgians. They do things so well you know but only as programmed!! We just had a mezze platter and a portion of prawns...

Fabulous service, fantastic food, and great choice of restaurant for a young family. Downstair ambience is very relaxing and smart casual. We sat upstairs, and it was a good choice for both of us and our little one. Attentive service and the friendly staffs have provided everything we need. We ordered fried squid and king prawn for us, and Bolognese... More

Having lived in Bruges for 1 year, studying at the CoE , The Olive tree became our place of relaxation. The staff is very friendly and the cuisine is exquisite. I will miss it, but I will surely return when I have time.
