It gets busy so go early. No reservations. Menu is limited: There is not much Greek food in Honolulu This is one of them. Casual with some out door tables. Parking lot get full fast. go early or plan takeout. No wine but liquor store next door.

I had an absolute horrible experience about 7 years ago. I had waited in line to pay after placing my phone order about 50 minutes prior (knowing it takes awhile). Waited about 10 minutes in line. When it was my turn the cashier skipped over me and helped the woman behind me. I kindly said that I was next. The... More

We have been here many times and while the food is just OK the wait can be long...however last night the line to order took 30 minutes and then the wait for food was 35 minutes. We will never go back. The kitchen is small but the normal delay is impacted by a very large number of take out orders.... More

Can be a wait to order and wait for your food. There is limited seating but I'd recommend securing a seat then ordering your food for dining in. Or you can take your food to go and eat it elsewhere. Note that they only accept cash or check and will tell you that there is a Bank of Hawaii ATM... More

Love this place. The food is made to order. It is always fresh and very tasty. It is also a BYOB. We began with the Greek Caviar otherwise known as tarama salads. It is prepared with lemon juice and garlic and served with pita bread. It was so delicious. Next we had lamb and fish souvlaki. These dishes are served... More

Olive Tree Cafe is a local classic that never disappoints. Love that they are next to a wine shop that you can buy and bring into Olive Tree Cafe. It's self serve, but that's what keeps the prices low! They have a parking lot, but it's always full so allow time for that.

This is one of the worst value for money meals I have ever purchased. I had the chicken breast souvlaki. I'm not sure how they can justify nearly $15 for such a simplistic attempt at a souvlaki. The portion size was a joke for the price. 1/3 of a chicken breast (possibly a thigh..) folded in a small pita with... More

Tonight we took a family of 9 to the olive tree cafe. I had heard great reviews of the food and we were new to the area. We found seating on the porch. The food was great! But the music was so loud you couldn't have a conversation. We asked the lady taking the order to turn it down and... More

We had great food here last year and just had to go back when we arrived this week. I have traveled all over Greece and it's very authentic and well done. Always crowded so get there early. It's BYOB. I agree with some others..the portion sizes have gotten smaller..but not the prices (although still reasonable by Hawaii standards). We will... More

Space is tight but worth the close quarters. Souvlaki is amazing as well as the hummus. BYOB very popular.
