Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We ate dinner at this restaurant a few years ago and when we were in Bonn again, we decided to go here for lunch. See if it was still as good as we remembered. And it was! We were not that hungry and at first we just wanted some small dishes to share. But the main dishes just were too appealling. We had zucchini poufers and cheese croquettes, really good. The main dishes were tasty and the meat tender. With the bill came two glasses of complimentary ouzo - what is not too like? Don't expect gyros or big platters of meat, expect authentic Greek dishes, made with love and served with pride. A bit of Greece in Bonn, we loved it!

We chose the Olive based on recommendations from another couple who visit Bonn often. Management where extremely friendly and helpful on the phone ensuring we had a reservation inside or out as the weather was iffy. The menu is not extensive as the Olive focuses on the quality not quantity of menu items. I chose the Dorado as it was recommended with one companion taking the Mackerel. The Dorado was great while the Mackerel a bit on the small side. The other companions chose baked chicken or two starters instead of a main course. Both were very pleased with their choices. The outside location was great as you could watch Bonn walk by but not be disturbed as it was a off the foot path.

Everything we ordered exceeded our expectations. They respect the product and the customers and it shows through the quality of the food. Everything was homemade and carefully prepared. As a Greek person I can only say that the feta, the olive oil, and the quality of basic ingredients of the Greek cuisine was excellent! The service is warm and welcoming, always helpful to explain details on the food and make recommendations with a big smile. It is extremely hard to find a truly good Greek restaurant in Germany and after a year of searching the whole NRW, this place truly reminded me of home.

It was a cloudy evening. We sat outside. The outside tables were bare - No candles to create any kind of atmosphere. The service was friendly. We ordered two moussaka’s. The taste was good, but unfortunately both moussaka’s were serveren lukewarm. Trying to have a romantic dinner, we did not complain. We ordered 5 min before we received the moussaka’s 1/2 liter of red and white wine to accompany the dish. Although we both did our best to eat slow a dish that was from the start not hot, we were unable to stretch it enough to receive our wine during our meal. When we were half finished eating, we reminded the waitress we were waiting for the wine & she said it would come. After 1/2 hour we finally received our wine. Both of us already finished eating. Although we complained when we received the wine. The waiter ignored the complained. Btw, the wine itself was fine.

Olive Restaurant is one of the best Restaurants we visited in Bonn. Even though it is currently surrounded by constructions it did not ruin the atmosphere that the restaurant has. A very nice and peaceful place to have a good meal. The service was very good. The person who was accommodating us was very nice to talk to , when my mother was not sure what to have , he gave his suggestion, and we later loved it. The food was tasty, representing true greek cuisine, beside the main ( significant ) dishes , the bread that they are making by their own hands , the tzatziki and the welcoming small fasolosoupa all were amazing.The prices are affordable and you will surely not leave with an empty stomach . I really recommend this restaurant if you want to have a good quality meal with a good peaceful atmosphere.

I'm sorry to have to disagree with the overwhelmingly positive reviews on this site. After ordering beers, starters and main course we waited for 45 mins without getting anything at all. Food and drinks were being served all over the restaurant but not to us, we were completely overlooked. We eventually left and went to another restaurant nearby. I'm willing to assume that our order had been misplaced somehow, but still, a professional waiter should notice that guests have no food or drink on their table...

The food was amazing. Huge variety of dishes with authentic greek food and drinks. Food was warm and tasteful. There are plenty vegetarian options as well. The ouzo and the dessert that is served for free at the end were exactly what you need after such a dinner. The place gets full easily though so I would recommend making reservations beforehand and be patient till the food is prepared.

Very nice place! We sat on the terrace, surrounded by lots of plants and old stone from the neighboring church. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The house wine (we had rosé) was fresh and tasty. The food was wonderful. Zucchini fritters were fluffy and tasty. My rabbit was tender as can be and done just right - delicately spiced, so as not to drown the inherent flavor. The stuffed peppers and the fried calamari also hit the spot. Our baclava for dessert was probably the best I ever had!

Small, charming restaurant with very friendly proprietor. And a sweet dog. Excellent chicken skewers, moussaka, and home made desserts were very yummy! Would like to go back and try other food on the menu. Also, live Greek music coming up on Thursday, March 26.

Cozy restaurant with high quality Greek dishes cooked to perfection. Everything is made in house from fresh ingredients and it shows. The zucchini balls and fried cheese we had as starters were very tasty, as were the pork and veal dishes we had as a main course. Staff was helpful and friendly. This was our second time around and we are already looking forward to the next.

This is definitely the best Greek food in Bonn, and possibly in all of Europe, outside of Greece. But the cooking is so authentic and delicious that it might very well be just as good as anything you find in Greece itself. Definitely try the moussakka, pastitsio, and all of the vegetarian dishes! It's everything you'd hope for, and more. And if that weren't enough, the restaurant is home to the most adorable dog you've ever seen. This little doggy is a host and will welcome you, and make sure your meal is a success. Be sure to give it some love on your way in and out! And tell your friends about this place after you've visited!

Really good authentic greek food. Our waiter, Im assuming was also the owner of the restaurant was super friendly and was always ready to answer any questions we had. He also asked a person on the street if they wanted to have a meal, they refused but he still gave them a free coffee. Food came out swiftly and did not dissapoint.

Had a wonderful light lunch here after a long day of traveling via trains. Servers were very friendly and kind. I got the spanakopita and Greek salad - both very delicious. Tomatoes could've been a bit fresher and more crispy, but otherwise very satisfying. A lentil soup appetizer and some sort of cake for dessert were complimentary, even though we didn't order much. Nice outdoor seating at the foot of the St. Remigius Church, where Beethoven was baptized and learned the organ.

We had a delicious lunch with some nice Greek wine, we tried several entries and the portions are all generous. The host made an extra effort to make us feel comfortable. We will definitely go there again.

We ordered today for lunch: 3 main dishes along with side ones. All of them well prepared and delicious, the quantities were larger than the usual ones. As I am Greek I can really share my feeling : "it felt like I was eating at home". Ι gave a promise to myself to soon return and taste the rest choices.
