This is a wonderful greek restaurant that has a lovely intimate atmosphere and superb food and service. We have been going to it for the last five years and though it is pricey it is worth a visit because of the attentive staff and the many freebie side dishes and drinks they lavish on you during the meal!

My friend and I were recommended to eat at The Olive Tree during our stay in Bruge. This lively, warm and tastefully decorated Greek restaurant is a little gem and although we hadn't planned on eating Greek food in Belgium we were very glad we did. When we arrived the restaurant was full with customers and taking into account that... More

We were moved from downstairs to upstairs and back to downstairs again. The restaurant was very busy on a Friday night and the staff didn't seem to cope. Atmosphere was nice however and food average.

I'm not really sure why this place has some really bad reviews. It took us a while to get served but it was a very busy evening and we had walked in without a reservation. Food was brilliant, lovely and tasty and our waiter was great! Free dessert and shots on the house, even if they do this for everyone... More

Went on a whim, and was pleasantly surprised! I had the fried calamari, my partner the lamp chops, and we would recommend both! Service was lovely, with complimentary olives and then complimentary lemon cake after we had finished our meal. Would 100% go again

Fed up with the mediocre and terrifyingly overpriced Belgian food we had had in our stay in Bruges (sorry Belgians! No offence....!) we were overjoyed to find this little gem. Beautifully decorated with fresh green walls and olive branches lit with soft lighting, it was totally relaxing. The most welcoming and hospitable staff who made every effort to make us... More

I absolutely loved this place. Food was amazing, ambiance was very warm and welcoming. A wonderful restaurant owned by a greek family. The mosaka was out of the world! Will come back for sure. Best restaurant in Brugge :)

This place really is a find. Just off the main market square we were given with a warm and friendly welcome on entering, even without a reservation. The restaurant is modern, tastefully decorated and furnished with Olive Tree wood and echoes of the Greek Islands. It is clearly family run by people who take a pride in their restaurant and...

We stopped for lunch and had a lovely time. The service was nice, the atmosphere was relaxed, the food was light and delicious and it was the perfect compliment to our day in Bruges.

Dropped in without a reservation and was welcomed by nice friendly staff. Food was superb four of us each had different dishes and all enjoyed, big portions so waddled out eventually full and content. This is not expensive for the quality and quantity
