Wonderfully cooked food, great service, a relaxed evening, what more could you ask for. You do need to book though.

My siblings and I found this restaurant as highly rated on Trip Advisor, and decided to give it a try since it was quite close to our hotel. We weren't disappointed.

We arrived very early, as we hadn't made any reservations, but were lucky enough to get seated right away.

The lamb chops were amazing, as was their lamb stew. Grilled calamari was lovely as well. And free cake for dessert was just icing on the top!

We went because of the high ratings on trip advisor but have to say it was only average. Now the service was good and the nice touch of some - on the house - granny cake for desert was a nice gesture. Other reviews raved about how delicious the greek dishes were, we were somewhat disappointed. The Moussaka was bland. In terms of value it is probably over rated.

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.
