Just back from Kalamaki and had to write a review of the Olive Tree as we enjoyed it so much.
Enjoyed food at the Olive Tree on many occasions.
Been here tonight and came away with a stomach bug :( hubby and daughter ok but had different food. Not the best food we had in Kalamaki which is a shame as the service and ambiance was excellent, restaurant was busy with holidaymakers and also locals which is always a good sign, I think I was maybe just unlucky. They have excellent early bird offers too. We had starters, main and drinks for 3 coming to 37 euros.
This restaurant served myself and my fiance our most disgusting meal of our 2 week holiday. I ordered sirloin steak and my finace ordered the salmon. You couldnt tell which was which when tasting as all you could taste on both was salt!!!!! Def would not go back there!!!
my husband and I have just returned from kalamaki, and by far the best restaurant we tried was the Olive Tree the food is excellent, loads of flavour, portion sizes just right, and lots of choice. the staff couldnt do enough for you and were very attentive. this is one i would highly recommend and plan on using again
We have just returned from Kalamaki, and we went to the Olive Tree on several evenings. The service was excellent, and the food great. My son chose from the childrens menu and had plenty, also got a free ice cream, and the meals my husband and i ate were hot tasty and lots of it. We just had a main meal and drinks, and found we couldn't eat anything else, the one time we had a starter we were unable to finish or main course.
Just got back from Kalamaki and must say The Olive Tree is by far the best restaurant in the resort. So good we ate there 5 times in the week. Food is to die for (particularly the Frygania dessert), portions are more than big enough, price is good and staff and atmosphere are amazing.
We went here twice in our 2 week holiday. The 1st time was fantastic and the food was delicious, the staff were friendly and helpful. The 2nd time, it was average. I guess it depends on staff and how busy the restaurant is, but you would hope for some consistency...
This place is overrated. I got the chicken "special". The sauce was lovely but the chicken was criminally over done. Such a shame. My boyfriend got the gyros and you had to find the meat it was literally just a plate ful of fat. Also my sons meal (which came with the starter) was served cold. The chips were stone cold. Not impressed. The staff were unattentive and hard to get hold of, it took 25 minutes for us after finishing our meal to have our plates cleared away.
One to avoid next time I think, but the setting is lovely.
Really cannot fault the Olive Tree, food yummy, service courteous and polite and always a smile. Try the vegetarian bouritos, wonderful.
My boyfriend and I were in Kalamaki in October 2005 and really enjoyed the food in the Olive Tree. The Zakynthian beef was a favourite. We did come on this website in 2005 and left a message congratulating the Olive Tree for their food and service.
We visited this restaurant three times during our stay. Each time the food was very good; service was friendly and prompt. The chicken and beef stifado were tasty and memorable.
This was our first time going here as we have never stayed that far down before. The food and staff where good but one meal the meat was alittle over done. But all in all it was a nice meal and we would go back again.
very busy due to the top quality food served and the service provided
The meals we ate in here were great. The chicken burrito was lovely and they make an amazing ceasar salad. Service top notch and we always had a nice table. The queues show it is a good place to eat and the staff are very polite.
Couldn't believe people actually queue to get in this restaurant! Its rubbish! Although we didn't have to wait for a table, the table cloth hadn't been changed from the previous diners and the service was poor. I ordered the Cod which had been nuked within an inch of its life, and could have doubled as a lilo! There are far more nicer palces to eat.
we only been to the olive tree in May and Oct last year, must say considering we been to Kalamaki 10 times prior we were really impressed with the food. And little waiter John we all fell in love with, we will be back Aug 3rd see you then Janine Martin George and Lottie xxx
Excellent food and service
We visited the Olive Tree for the first time and i have to say excellent service and food.
we have to say this was a disappointment. we didnt mind the delay to be seated, after all thats usually a good sign if so many people are waiting, especially in may. the chicken souvlaki was bland and tasteless, the other chicken dish was equally unmemorable. give it a try if you like, but there are other places we would recommend you try first.
This is a great restaurant with friendly staff and tasty food. We ate here several times during our stay in Zante and were always welcomed warmly.
