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...

We really enjoyed our visit to The Olive Tree. Tasty food, perfect portion size, reasonable price. We had the stuffed vine leaves and fried aubergine to start, followed by the chicken breast stuffed with feta and peppers and the lamb chops.

I just stumbled upon this restaurant while looking for places to eat near the center, and was very pleased with it. The food is plentiful and delicious, and the staff is extremely attentive, making sure you're enjoying your meal. They even gave me a complimentary desert (after I was already really full from the meal), which was a very nice... More

Restaurant is located next to the Market , which is good, but better book table in advance. Remember also to check opening hours. Food was quite good, but rather expensive. Staff seems to have a comfort of to many customers, so don't care much in my opinion. Still it's not bad.

What a lovely place , fantastic service nice and friendly and food to die for, did not believe lamb chops could taste so good. They brought out some cake to try from the chef and a wine to accompany it, you don't often get this attention or kindness. You must come here if in Bruges...

Great staff, perfect location right next to the main square. Would recommend the stuffed chicken and thank you for the "on the house" dessert
