A casual dinner for 4 friends, managed to get a same day reservation. Waitress was friendly and efficient. Main portions were large and reasonably priced. Decor was quirky and restaurant was busy.
As a visitor to Melbourne, the decor was quite a flashback , however the quality of the excellent service and the magnificent meals was pleasantly surprising. The waiters service was exceptionally good without being 'snooty' . The steaks were cooked perfectly, the sauces were tasty and delicious , the portions were generous and I highly recommend the continental cheesecake for... 更多
Not the greatest of experiences I have had...Ordered steak to be rare to medium and came out very well done and portions were very small.....our group was ordered around by the waiter and demanded that we order our meals straight away.
Had been looking forward to going to the Olive Tree on various visits to Melbourne but never quite arranged it. So when I finally went unfortunately I was a little underwhelmed. My Daughter had the Lasagna which she said was a little overcooked. My Son-in-Law had a Steak which again he said was a little overcooked. I had the Lingunini... 更多
Tucked away in Park Street, The Olive Tree takes you back in time to with its 1970's decor (the sign out the front hasn't been updated to reflect the "9" that was added to phone numbers back in the 1990's!)

We shared a dozen mixed oysters! A BYO bottle of Vas Felix! My partner partook of an entree serve of spinach and ricotta cannelloni with bolognese sauce. I accepted the suggestion of waiter and ate the venison coletta accompanied by perfect 'al dente vegetables'. What followed was an affogato for each of us! Which completed a great dining experience. Love... 更多
I had noticed this restaurant since the 1970s but have only just had an excuse to try it out. What have I been missing out on!!! It was quiet for our chat with our financial planner and the staff were excellently attentive without intruding. The Menu was innovative and well priced. We had Venison steaks coated in Parmesan and Almond... 更多
I visited the Olive Tree on Friday November 18 2016. The venison I had was absolutely magnificent, accompanied by the rosti and beetroot and apple chutney. The service was excellent along with the great selection of red wine. Overall, fantastic restaurant
My mates and I stayed in the Quest above the olive tree and we ordered out one night. The food was actually amazing even giving the fact it was takeaway. Generous portion sizes with nice vegetables to boot. We all enjoyed the various meals we ordered. I can only imagine how nice the food would be if we had dined... 更多
