My wife and I had dinner our first night in Bruges. It was 18:00 and did not have reservations. So the hostess ask if we could be finished by 20:00 as all the tables had been reserved for that time....not a problem. We each ordered the grilled calamari which was perfectly prepared and tender, accompanied by a nice bottle of... More

Went with my husband last night. I had chicken and my husband had fish. Both were gorgeous. The atmosphere was great and the staff were extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely recommend eating there.

We reserved after reading good reviews on TripAdvisor - we sat upstairs - and had a table by the window - which was lovely as it was a warm evening. Restaurant had a lovely ambience - felt very clean and fresh. Food was very good - we had the bread and dips as a sharing starter (plenty) and Lamb for... More

We came early to the restaurant without a reservation and it was no problem. However within an hour the place was full. We had no complaints. The food was fantastic, service with a smile & we had complimentary drink to finish. Terrific. However, we did give the owner and staff a surprise when we showed them our 'dog'. We had... More

This was our fourth visit to the Olive tree over the past 3 years, attention to detail has slipped on this visit, the previously high quality was just average on this visit, the attentive service was missing.

Having first discovered this place on our first night in Bruges 3 1/2 years ago, it was a pleasure to re-visit, this time with a large group of friends on our last night in Bruges. The previously tiny place has been extended and the enticing menu also expanded. The lamb chops and kleftiko were as usual outstanding, but between our... More

Greek food, but upmarket and beautifully presented. Service was excellent. Decor has a natural feel with chairs of olive wood. Food is delicious and portion larger than I expected. Although this was a lunch visit prices for evening meal were the same. Orange cake was a delicious extra I wasn't sure I could manage, but did! Neither of us felt... More

Get off the main square in Bruges and away from those hokey, fake, overpriced restaurants and eat somewhere else. Eat at The Olive Tree, which is a fantastic Greek restaurant just off the square, almost across from the Salvador Dali exhibit. I had the most wonderful chicken breast stuffed with feta, red peppers and onions. I forget the Greek name... More
