We heard a lot about this restaurant and managed to try it. We were very pleasantly surprised. The relaxed ambience, the very friendly and knowledgeable staff and of course the good food was such a welcome treat. our server gave suggestions confidently yet was not pushy. The food came out quickly. I particularly liked the pulpo and the Tzatziki. Being a cancer patient, I was happy to have found a restuarant that gave me delicious choices at reasonable prices. I wish we had more days in Baguio to keep coming back.

Went here early on a Sunday to make sure we could get tables for our party of 12 since they don’t take reservations, which is understandable since they did get quite full for lunch. We opted to sit outdoors which was very cool and relaxing. The bench type seating and slotted table was the only downside as it was hard to get in and out and we probably over ordered as the table got too crowded that we ended up spilling some sauce all over ourselves. We did not count on authentic Greek food but the food we got was surprisingly good and the kids especially loved the Greek Village Sausage that we had to order more. Prices are very affordable, which was probably why we over ordered. They didn’t have any moussaka available though which was very sad since I was looking forward to trying theirs. I like how their pita bread was quite flat and not the usual fluffy thick ones I’ve had before so it was less filling. My favorite is the grilled Greek cheese with Strawberry Jam served in a small iron skillet which kept it warm. The salty crust is heavenly and like a crustless all cheese pizza. We contemplated having dessert and coffee as well but the staff look frazzled and it fed off on us and we started getting a little stressed so we just left after our meal. Overall, I would recommend dining here if you go to Baguio and skip the usual touristy restaurants that probably became popular only for their cheap prices but low quality food.

After a few disappointing experiences in our first days here, this was the first place we really enjoyed in Baguio. Staff is not perfect but really trying their best. Food is fresh and well prepared. Atmosphere is very nice and views are stunning. Prices are very reasonable, we paid pesos 1,500 or less than eur 30 for an excellent meal.

Visited this retaurant on January 17, 2020 for dinner. We were a big group of 35 and sat at a long table and my baby wanted to sit beside their Christmas tree to eat. While my son was eating, the owner, removed my son’s food from the table and just got our table without saying anything. It was very rude of him to do that. i advised him that if he moved us, my baby would keep crying, yet instead of openly communicating with me, he shrugged me off and continued to remove my baby’s food . He didn’t understand that my baby was crying and the least he could have done was to politely talk to me. Very bad experience in this place!

It was only by chance we stumbled on this restaurant and were curious by the number of people queuing. The place itself is very beautiful but it's the only good thing about it. I had a Greek salad and the balsamic was of low quality (quite sour) and the olive oil didn't taste like one. The seafood platter wasn't presented well, to begin with, and we ate some just to fill our stomachs. The prawns could have been easily presented so if I didn't want to use my hand I can easily use a spoon/knife. Again the taste was awful, it taste like it was poached in old cooking oil. The staff was shocked when we said "we didn't want to take it home" and that says it all. The burger was disappointing too, it was just tough. I was half expecting it but it could have been grounded in finer pieces if the quality of meat isn't as good. I am writing this because I want the place to improve as the views from the main dining hall is just what I expect of Baguio of old. I'll visit again at some point and will update this review either way.

Lemon and Olives is a good restaurant. Foods really good. Service is fast and efficient. Food is not cheap but priced reasonably. After our light lunch, we ordered their Baklava cheesecake which was great! We ordered coffee as well and we asked for milk for our coffee and the waiter said “sir there’s extra charge for milk.” It’s not a hole-in-the-wall restaurant mind you, so when the waiter said that, my husband and I were just shocked! Only in the Philippines! That’s the deal breaker right there!

- Appetizers were served after the salad, a nono when dealing with 2 hospitality professionals - we asked for our left overs to be bagged for take out. The waiter disappeared never to be seen again. We had to ask one of his colleagues who obliged - 2 desserts came fast but after a while we had to remind them the 2 cappuccinos we ordered at the same time were still not served... Some time later we had to remind them a second time In our place this calls for mandatory retraining. Like this part of the waiting staff just seemed switched off.

Greek Style Spaghetti was a bit fine but the Mediterranean Pasta was Terrible. Serving time: 10-15 minutes but actual serving time was 40 minutes to 1 hour. (2x to follow-up) Staffs seems clueless of the menu and they just keep the customer coming in without proper handling. Got an Incomplete order and just got tired of following up.

Did not expect for a good Greek food spot in Baguio and just chance on this resto while looking for a place to eat. Ordered a few classics and did not disappoint. Price was reasonable and serving size was really great - we were so full after a few courses even if we shared each dish. We waited a bit for a spot to open by the balcony though but it was well worth it. Definitely one of the places we will go back to if we go to Baguio again. Evia Salad and tzatziki were really good to whet your appetite. The way they served the pita was well thought out so you don't need to wrestle with your bread. Salad dressing was served on the side so you can mix it to how it suits your palate. We also ordered a side of steamed veg - they served a small serving of brocs and carrots (this was what we thought was kinda pricey for only a few bites since we are in Baguio for crying out loud). Osso bucco was fab. Meat was fall off the bone tender, the sauce was warm enough for just the right kind of hearty meal we were hoping to get. The cheese served as flakes on top was very generous and complimented the tomato base of the sauce. The chocolate cake and classic baklava were really good. Paired with really good coffee, the sickly sweetness was balanced off by the lovely bitterness from their properly roasted brew. They also have a secret cute garden out in the back for a little "time out" after a satisfying meal (I think they shot a Pinoy TV series there?)

I celebrated many milestones in this restaurant. I used to eat here daily during the pandemic year. Unfortunately, It is No longer as Charming as It was. Today, the great food was served in cheap-looking and the saddest broken china (dishes). All our saucers has huge chips on it and still being used. The ceramic seems the kind that may contain lead as it is the cheapest even respectable carinderias may avoid. It sure makes for a bad experience being served good food in ugly plates and mugs. I hope the management reflects their prices in the dinnerware they choose to use. The flatware also needs updating. Well-heeled market (their type of clientele) deserves better. The food is nothing to complain about. The pastry serving’s almost went back to its pre-inflation sizes. Hummus is always good as well as all their lamb dishes.

After hearing so many great things, on our last visit to Baguio we gave it a try. i will say i have lived in cities with large Greek populations so the bar is high on Greek food,. first the Greek Salad was not authentic, it was mostly lettuce where as a true Greek salad has little or no lettuce. the lamb in the two lamb dishes was tough and of poor quality. We went at 5:30 for early dinner and they were already out of some signature Greek dishes. The service was lacking at best.

Knowing that pricey sometimes does not equal to quality. We were a bit worried of the food. However on my first bite, I immediately knew why the food was pricey. It was because of the amount of work the chef put to work on the tastiest dishes we ever had. :-)

We had a great experience, had to wait outside because we didn’t make reservations but once led to our table after about 20 minutes all ok. Awesome view from where we were sitting. We ordered the house salad to share and after some different Mediterranean dishes all well done and fresh, with some awesome spicy dips. The staff is must say was Very Attentive and Fast, the place was completely packed so they had to run to make things work but all thumbs up we received great service!! We loved it we will be back!!
