My husband and I ate here in March 2018 while staying in Bruges. We did not have a reservation but they were able to seat us early (we went at 6:30pm) The restaurant filled quickly throughout the time we were there. We both enjoyed our meals and our wine and the service was excellent! If you enjoy Greek/Mediterranean food you will not be disappointed!

We decided to book the Olive Tree for our last night in Bruges and had a lovely time. The restaurant is charmingly decorated with a lot of green and wood and created a relaxing atmosphere. The staff were all very friendly and made us feel welcomed. We had the taramasalata and beautifully cooked crispy aubergines in honey and sesame seeds to start with. For mains my grilled squid was delicious despite being a tad cold by the time it reached the table and my partner's lamb chops were cooked just right and full of flavour. We were pleasantly full and weren't thinking of dessert until they presented us with wonderfully moist and zesty homemade orange cake and a small glass of liquor each to finish off the meal - on the house! Go when you are in Bruges! Located right in the touristic square but a real gem and very reasonably priced.

We were so lucky to get a table here!
The staff were great and the food beyond amazing. We had Moussaka and the grilled lamb, after it was recommended as soon as we walked through the door by another table. We were given a complimentary taster dessert and it was delicious.
The atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable. We would definitely eat here again.
Be sure to book in advance!

We begged our way in when we should have had a reservation, but we were treated delighfully. The service was great, the food was delicious. Highly recommend the octopus and the lamb chops! Everything was very fresh and delicous. Had great reasonably priced wine. The orange cake and dessert liquor were a sweet touch. This family is doing a great job in a town overrun by tourist spots.

This is a very nice Greek restaurant that values freshness and quality. The food and service were excellent. We were offered home made orange cake at the end of our meal, which was delicious too. My partner is Greek and having been to plenty of Greek restaurants around Europe, this restaurant is certainly one of the best.

Tip: If you are planning on dining here especially during busy weekends such as Easter or the summer months, reserve a few days in advance.
