“Caz”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Food here was delicious and the staff incredibly friendly and helpful. The price is a little higher than surrounding places, but you really get what you pay for. The little treat of having a toast with the waiter at the end was very pleasant and unexpected. Highly recommend a visit, very busy and popular so book before arriving.

“Delicious”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

So pleased we booked dinner here as we had a delicious supper made up purely from a selection of the starters - the vine leaves were the best we've eaten outside of Greece. Although it's pricey, it's a lovely restaurant with a great vibe and great service. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and from what I could see, we weren't the only ones!

“Definitely Go To This Place!”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

I went to this place with my girlfriend having booked the night before which is probably advisable. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and the place itself was lovely: nice decor and a good atmosphere. We had the set menu for two which is an aperetif, a mixed platter of all the starters, choice of any main and a coffee. The starters were amazing! After the meal the staff gave us another drink and a piee of cake for free.
This was a perfect way to spend our last night and i'd recommend it to anyone going to Bruges.
I give it 6 out of 5!

“Delicious food and fantastic service”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

We visited The Olive Tree on our first night in Brugge and it was absolutely brilliant. The welcome we received was really warm and friendly and the service was superb. I had the mix dips for my starter and moussaka for my main course, and they were both really delicious. The atmosphere was really good too, and we were very grateful for the complimentary cake and small glass of port! Could not fault our evening, it was the best meal we had in this beautiful city and the waitress was lovely and welcoming. A very relaxing evening!

“Very friendly and very good food”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Can only agree with other reviewers that this is a very pleasant place to come and refuel after 8 hours on the 3 trains we used to get to Bruges.
We settled for the fixed meal for 2 and it was very good in terms of food and value and a definite reminder of warmer times in Greece.
Booking advised as got pretty full even on a cold November Monday evening.
