First night in Bruges. We enjoyed the grilled lamb chops and moussaka. Also the complementary appetizers and cake were greatly appreciated! White house wine was tasty. We also greatly appreciate it when a resto provides free tap water, what we consider 'normal' is clearly not the case in most resto's in Bruges, so thumbs up for that!

We were lucky to get in to this very good little Greek restaurant. We would book if returning as it gets busy. The food was simple but well cooked and very nicely presented. Good gluten free options available. We chose a Halloumi cheese and tomato starter followed by Pork and Chicken Souvlaki, very tasty!! Also, reasonable prices for Bruges! Staff... More

We were looking for a break from the heavy food of Paris and Bruges and the olive tree was perfect. Expertly cooked lamb and chicken, small wine list with mostly Greek wines. Very good food while also a healthy meal. The staff was very friendly, only issue we had was we were seated directly next the the washroom which was... More

Staff were very friendly, but service seemed a little disjointed for a Thursday evening. The food was good, but for the price I expected better.

From the service to the interior. This place has a added value, being authenticity. The dishes were nothing different when on the menu but the presentation and taste are definitely a "different" kind of Greek cuisine experience. A definite recommend when in Bruges

We chose the Olive Tree from the positive postings on TA for our only evening meal during our mini break to Bruges, and we were not to be disappointed! The restaurant is small and welcoming with a slight rustic touch to give diners an authentic Greek feeling. The menu provides a broad choice with all the starters seemingly ~10€ and... More

Beautiful meal - don't order a starter as you get bread and olives automatically and no need for dessert as a lovely taster polenta cakes and dessert wine comes complimentary at the end Incredible meal - but you must book in advance

After a full day of sightseeing which ended in the bar at Historium Brugge, we decided to try out The Olive Tree. Great starters and a fabulous kleftiko (and souvlaki!) with complimentary orange cake (lovely & moist) and dessert wine, as well as very friendly and attentive staff...ended our short break on a very positive note. The Olive Tree is... More

After another day overindulging on Belgian baking we were ready for something fresh and light. We ordered the grilled squid which was served with rice, potatoes, salad and pitta. The squid was cooked well allowing the delicate flavours of the superb produce to come through. The staff were attentive, friendly and really down to earth chatting with customers whilst working...
