We visited on a busy Friday night and were seated right away. All of the menu items were so unique and looked so fabulous we were having a hard time deciding what to order so Paul, our waiter, gladly made some suggestions! We definately were not disappointed!! Awesome staff, great ambience, delicious food.

This great little restaurant was a pleasant surprise, as we were just curb-cruising, looking for a likely lunch spot. What a treat! The decor is great, the service excellent, and the menu to match. We had lunch fare, mostly wraps with side salads, and all three of us were pleased. Put it on your list, and don't allow the location... More

Probably the most authentic Mediterranean cuisine we've had in a long time. Lunch was excellent. We had the muhumarrah dip and falafel. The service was also very nice.

The menu items are tasty and surprising. I had a paella, which was not very traditional (in fact including pineapple!), but had great flavor. My husband had the basil pesto chicken quesadilla which we thought was brilliant!

The food at this restaurant is always beyond expectation as everything is unbelievably good! The portions are so large that it was difficult to finish my main: chicken cesar salad. My sister ordered the donair and had the same problem lol! We are so lucky to have this dining option in a small city and the prices are very reasonable.... More

The food is good just not what I was expecting like a creme sauce is still tomato. But still very good. The restaurant has poor parking and is off the beaten path a bit

We were looking for something a little different than the usual pub fare around here, and we found it! If you like tasty Mediterranean food at a reasonable price, be sure to find your way to Olive Tree (not to be mistaken for that manky chain restaurant in the US, Olive Garden). Great service, nice wait stafff, adorable atmosphere, cozy... More
