When stepping into The Olive Tree in Bruges, guests will immediately sense the essence of Greek culture through the welcoming atmosphere and friendly staff, or, as the Greeks like to call it: ‘filoxenia’ (hospitality) and ‘filotimo’ (love of honour). “They say that food is a reflection of the people who eat it and there is no better way to understand a culture than through its food,” co-owner Aspa Limniou explains. “Our principle is to prepare authentic Greek recipes by keeping all the culinary traditions that were passed on from generation to generation.”
