    Overall was a good experience however one steak was cooked well not "medium" didn't complain as we were hungry. There was a lot of gristle on the rib eye, everyone elses meal was great and they enjoyed their steak and noodles and pasta, was just the rib eye that was not to standard, should've had the scotch as that looked delicious!

    The rib eye on the bone was tough. I cook a better steak at home. Only about 300gm and over priced for the quality.

    Ginger Olive is an absolute gem! From the moment we walked in, we were enveloped by a vibrant and welcoming ambiance. The music was perfectly curated, creating a lively yet relaxed atmosphere that set the stage for an unforgettable dining experience. The BBQ chicken and beef ribs were nothing short of spectacular. The chicken was tender and bursting with flavor, with just the right amount of smoky goodness. The beef ribs, on the other hand, were a revelation – succulent, perfectly cooked, and seasoned to perfection. Each bite was a testament to the chef's expertise and passion for quality BBQ. Overall, Ginger Olive has it all: fantastic food, great music, and a warm, inviting ambiance. It's a must-visit for anyone looking to enjoy a memorable meal in a wonderful setting. Highly recommended!
