You find yourself very comfortable in the environment that surrounds you and try a fantastic high-quality and tasty food but with affordable prices. The attention you receive is also very close and friendly but relax. Definetly, it is a must when visiting Budapest!

Amazing! The absolute best hummus I have ever had! The falafel, shawarma, and tabuleh were super! Also had pilmine (sp?), but I was stuffed lol. Joszi was a great host and made us feel right at home! Will definitely come back any time I am...in town!!!More

Lovely little restaurant that serves top class food! We had hummus, falafel, dumplings and pitta and they were all amazing. Fast and friendly service too which always helps. If you like this kind of cuisine then this place is a must!

Best hummus bar in Budapest. Don’t settle for less. The hummus is fresh and creamy. I can also recommend the shawarma.

We were tired after a long day, and the Olive Tree was everything we could have wished for. My partner and I both ended up super happy and satisfied. I was especially excited to see they offer whole flour pita - as a pita lover...but one sadly unable to have white flour, this was a dream come true. They tasted amazing, and so did the chicken, couscous and hummus I had. The staff are lovely. We enjoyed the restaurant's interior, which is individualistic and cosy, with attention to detail and a creative, laid-back atmosphere. Thank you so much for a perfect evening at your restaurant. The Olive Tree is now our favourite place to eat in Budapest, and we'd love to come back someday.More

I stopped in based on the reviews I read and wasn’t disappointed. The restaurant has a cozy, comfortable atmosphere. Service was friendly and fast and the food was fantastic. I had the mixed plate with chicken shawarma - a generous helping of Israeli hummus, the...most amazing couscous, samples of 4 salads, a generous serving of chicken shawarma and two pieces of warm pita. Yummy! I’d definitely go back!More

The food here is superb. The service is excellent. The drinks are well made and good value. The portions are goodly-sized. Everything about this place is lovely and the overall ambience made it one of the nicest eating experiences in the city. The only thing...to remember is that it is quite small and thus it is worth booking in advance, as it is much in demand.More
