This is one of the worst value for money meals I have ever purchased. I had the chicken breast souvlaki. I'm not sure how they can justify nearly $15 for such a simplistic attempt at a souvlaki. The portion size was a joke for the price. 1/3 of a chicken breast (possibly a thigh..) folded in a small pita with... More

Tonight we took a family of 9 to the olive tree cafe. I had heard great reviews of the food and we were new to the area. We found seating on the porch. The food was great! But the music was so loud you couldn't have a conversation. We asked the lady taking the order to turn it down and... More

We had great food here last year and just had to go back when we arrived this week. I have traveled all over Greece and it's very authentic and well done. Always crowded so get there early. It's BYOB. I agree with some others..the portion sizes have gotten smaller..but not the prices (although still reasonable by Hawaii standards). We will... More

Space is tight but worth the close quarters. Souvlaki is amazing as well as the hummus. BYOB very popular.

We were shopping at Kalala Mall, and I had read the good reviews on TA about this restaurant, so armed with a bottle of wine we arrived not long after 5.15pm on a Tuesday evening, there was still lots of seats left. We enjoyed the dips, and ordered souvlaki and I the special (as recommended when I ordered). The souvlaki... More

A bottle of wine from next door, hummus and baba ghanosh with chips held us nicely until our chicken slouvaki was finished with coffee and baklava. Sigh.. Yum..nothing left but empty plates😬

lamb souvlaki is very good and that is where the 4 star ends ; however all portions are small and not much service; cash only and pricey; one has to get there early as not many tables

I went here with friends later in the evening in the middle of the week. As I hadn't eaten Greek food in some time, I was at a loss as to what I should order, as were my friends. The hostess behind the bar did her best to try and describe the flavors of the various dishes, but in the... More

Haven't eaten here for a couple of years. Food still good but it seemed portions were not very generous this time and not very good value for money spent.

My wife is vegetarian, so finding a place in Hawaii that has many vegetarian food choices is important. The Olive Tree Cafe fits the bill. We enjoyed appetizers that included excellent hummus served with warm flatbread. We also had babaganoush and tabbuleh salad that was quite tasty. We split the falafel gyro with a delicious yogurt sauce. Service was quick... More
