The Olive Tree is an award-winning, family-run Greek restaurant in the heart of Berkhamsted. Greek cuisine has long centred on social dining – food is never to be rushed, but rather savoured in a relaxed environment in the company of friends and family. This is where the mezethes tradition served at The Olive Tree originates from.

Mezethes are small plates meant for sharing. Each dish on the menu is prepared using age-old methods handed down through generations of family cooking. You’ll find the chef’s mouth-watering seasonal specials such as marinated swordfish, calamari stuffed with feta and figs, and ouzo-infused cheesecake alongside all your favourite traditional dishes. The likes of stuffed vine leaves, baklava and moussaka, the restaurant’s signature dish, take pride of place on the menu. Try one of the many pikilia (sharing platters), or a set banquet menu and await dish after vibrant dish of colourful vegetables, bright salads, fresh fish and succulent meats. A great balance of locally sourced produce coupled with imported artisanal ingredients – including olive oil from their own family groves in Kalamata – makes for a truly authentic Greek dining experience. There’s an early evening pre-cinema platter menu available Tuesday to Sunday, and lunchtime deals and specials that are well worth looking out for.

The Olive Tree has a picturesque garden terrace, which offers a sunny spot for al fresco dining. With regular taverna nights that feature Greek banquets and live traditional music, it’s like a little corner of Greece in Berkhamsted.
