We were so lucky to get a last minute reservation here. We had stuffed vine leaves, fish, moussaka and other delights. House wine was good and the orange cake is fabulous and so was our waiter.

3rd visit, every one as good as the last. One of our favourite places to eat in Bruges, but you must book in advance - always fully booked in our experience. varied menu and everything high quality. Highly recommend.

I visited the Olive Tree after a recommendation and was not disappointed. The staff were very warm and welcomed us in, even though we didn’t have a reservation. The food was delicious and plentiful and very reasonably priced considering the quality of the produce. Brugge...is an expensive city to eat, particularly because there are a lot of poor quality establishments charging high prices, therefore the Olive Tree made for a refreshing change. The location was wonderful (near the Belfry) the decor was modern, the staff took pride in their service and the food was wonderful. I would highly recommend a visit here when I’m Brugge.More

My family and I dined here on Christmas Eve and I have to say that the Olive Tree was nothing short of outstanding! We have visited many restaurants not only at home but throughout Greece and have to say that the Olive Trees rates up...there with some of the best. The food was excellent as was the wine, service was extremely good with super friendly and attentive staff. Thank you once again.More

We didn’t have a reservation but the staff were happy to accommodate us and took us to a table upstairs. We soon realised that all the other tables up there were also walk ins and the staff rarely attended to these tables and we had...to wait over an hour for our mains to be served. The food however was actually really nice with generous portions, and the restaurant had a cosy vibe with a nice atmosphere. Luckily we weren’t in a rush, but we didn’t enjoy being forgotten about.More

Greek food in Belgium... yes yes yes. Book ahead as this place is rightly popular. The dining room is decorated with wood and has nice modern rustic feel to it. My husband and I had the set menu; a selection of mezze starters, choise of...mains, a drink and coffee. The beef stew was delicious ans the fried calamari came with a whole squid. Everything was delicious. After we were given dessert wine and orange cake on the house. Perfect food and great service. Location is great, just off the Markt.More

Really great food with so much flavour. Possibly a touch pricey for a couple of the items but to be honest, it doesn't matter as the food is so good. Friendly and welcoming team too which is always a good thing as you don't feel...rushed.More

What an excellent find - just searching for restaurants near us on a short mini-break in Bruges and we happened upon this gem! The food was amazing and the service was brilliant. We stayed a long time but did not feel rushed at any point!...The complimentary dessert was much appreciated! Huge thanks to all involved!More

Booked The Olive Tree online the day before visiting. Staff were friendly and atmosphere was good. Dinner was excellent. Complementary cake and aperitif after dinner were very welcome. The lemon cake was amazing! Would highly recommend. My husband and I know it's a great meal...when we don't talk until the last mouthful and this was a silent dinner!More

Tripadvisor once again came through for us when we had an unexpected stop in Brugge. The staff is amazing. Greek and english is spoken and they are all very pleasant and friendly. We shared the starter with bread and dips (and replaced the fish-dip with...an extra feta dip, which they were happy to do for us. The warm starters looked awesome and the veggie mains could have included a selection of warm starters, which is the only small way in which this place could be better. Eventually I chose the vegetarian lentil moussaka and was very pleasantly surprised with the rich tastes! Hubby went for the cheese filled chicken and he too was very happy. Beautiful decor with pretty olive wood tables, service was friendly and top notch and the food was great. Thanks Olive Tree.More

Sorry for the late reply. The staff are very helpful so I do hope they can (or already have) accommodated your group. I didn’t think it was particularly expensive - reasonably priced.
