Little wonder that booking is essential; the food is top-class and the staff genuinely welcoming. Upon finishing our meals, we were given, free of charge, a glass of lovely Madeira wine, so much liked by one member of our party that she enquired if she could have another, which we would have been more than willing to add to the bill. We were given a jug of it and not charged. This said it all about how the staff values its customers. Interesting to read that many of the negative reviews of The Olive Tree are from people who were unable to secure bookings. I'd be envious too.

We came upon The Olive Tree by accident and though we weren't able to book a table for our first night in Bruges, we had success our second night. We never expected to be eating Greek food in Belgium however from the greeting through our departure everything was excellent. Our entire table of 5 were thrilled with our meals. The Friday night music was a nice touch and Paris and his staff were as friendly and attentive as you would ever hope for.

Spent Easter holiday in Bruges,had read reports and booked well in advance,I cannot fault it,very friendly family run place,food was superb,best meal without question,considering it is so Close to main square the prices are very reasonable,they are more interested in people thoroughly enjoying their food rather than getting as many bums on seats.would definitely suggest you book in advance or you won't get in.a wonderful piece of Greece!

Tried to get into this restaurant on our arrival in Bruge over Easter weekend but all the tables were booked. Thankfully we managed to get a table on another night. Saw a couple from our hotel leaving as we came in who had thoroughly enjoyed it also. Rustic but smart decor. Nice warm family atmosphere the staff all seemed very eager to please. Food was delicious and we were given a small sample of a homemade cake after. It was the cheapest meal we had in Bruges but far and away the best.
