    All good, the party enjoyed themselves. Some of them were intimidated by the owner watch over people’s shoulders. That can a bit less

    First time patron but will definitely be back. Requested a pre-theatre early dinner, which was no problem. Easy to find and close to the Regent Theatre. The staff were very friendly and amiable; even entertained 12-year old youngsters who are fussy eaters. Nothing was too much trouble - great atmosphere and fantastic service.

    Love this restaurant. We had the shared plate and it was absolutely delicious. The meat was cooked to perfection and the fish was tender and sweet. The service was second to none. Couldn’t fault it. The staff are extremely courteous and friendly and eager to please. What I really liked above all else was the quiet atmosphere. It wasn’t subdued but quiet enough that you can have a pleasant conversation and hear it clearly. Thank you Ginger Olive for a wonderful evening.

    I thought I was booking a lovely restaurant for a special dinner with my brother but when we turned up it was immediately obvious that this restaurant relies only on passing traffic as it seemed more of a combo cafe/restaurant. It was not the dining experience that I was looking for i.e. Something that represented the high price ticket of their food and offered an intimate relaxing and enjoyable dining experience. This was bright, plastic tables, expensive food and average wine. The steak was about $65 and was no better than a steak out of the counter at Coles. Sadly this was all our family talked about after the evening, which was disappointing.

    Everything was just right. Beautiful food, impeccable service and casual atmosphere. Staff and owner were attentive without being annoying. We loved this restaurant and can't wait to go back and work our way through the menu. Loved that it was 5 star food and service without being pretentious. Highly recommend.

    The staff were superb, very welcoming. Part of our order was the meat selection good for 2 and the sad part was on the lamb. The lamb seemed not fresh and so giving a bad taste. The rest of the food was delicious.
