    The food here is simple, delicious and beautifully executed. We had the zucchini chips with goats cheese, roasted chicken with pilaf and the proccuiuto, melon and mozarella salad. Beautiful Pinot Noir from Tasmania.. delicious. We will be back.

    Lovely interior design and ambience alongside the grapevine pergola of Chesser Street. I appreciate the effort to create healthy original recipes rather than just sticking to the classics. Zucchini chips were good - more salt on them would have been better. The lack of salt is probably because the restaurant is run by a dietitian! Fried feta was good. Smacked cucumber, labneh, mint, zaatar, pickled red onion had large irregular chunks of cucumber that were kind of unappetising. The whole salad didn't quite work, despite having good fresh ingredients. Peri Peri chicken was a little undercooked and bland. Probably not a good choice of mine. I will return and try some other items on the menu.

    We had a terrific experience at Olive, we selected the 'feed me' option, with 1x dinner coeliac. This was no issue for Olive at all, they had their own fresh, GF bread & slightly modified dessert so everything could be enjoyed. The meals were delicious, the service was fantastic, and it had a lively, energetic atmosphere. We are already planning to return soon for more brown butter hummus & to try more of the incredible cocktails!

    We had the “feed me” menu for 4 people and were surprised by how much delicious food was presented. We did not really need the lamb as the extra, but that too was delicious! Gnocchi was awesome! Will definitely go back!

    Our experience was excellent. We did the fixed price menu, which in retrospect was too much food for us, but, the food was very very good, the service was great (thank you, Luca!) and the cocktails were awesome. There was a fun energy to the restaurant, which we appreciated as out-of-towners.

    Our waiter showed excellent knowledge of the menu and guided us well The food was quite amazing and different especially the fried feta dish The gnocchi was as good as we have grown and the innovation in the baklava as and ice cream dessert was very good Only minor criticism was that a couple of the medium size dishes were salads that were perhaps better suited to be described as a side especially the cucumber dish Also BYO rule is one per table meaning that a table of 2 can bring 1 bottle and a table of six can only bring one bottle perhaps 1 per 2 guests is more logical Definitely a go back to

    with a group of 9 the Feed Me menu was perfect - the service was a little hit & miss as it was a busy thursday nite - we had to regularly ask for more sparkling water - we did also order 3 additional serves of the lamb but it never arrived - it did appear on the bill but this was quickly rectified.

    Delightful food and service. Two couples so we ordered the ‘feed me’ option. Tangy and refreshing, good balance of lighter salads and heavier gnocchi and peri peri chicken. Luca provided the right mix of attentive, knowledgeable but relaxed service. A good special occasion restaurant.

    This hits in all the right ways - easy to understand menu with complex flavours that still seemed related. Special mention - an extensive wine-by-the-glass list! We had the feed me menu and it was really well balanced - not starving, not over full and best of all, absolutely ready to come back again :-)

    The charred broccolini gotta be our favourite of the night, followed by the focaccia and the eggplant. The chilli sauce was mildly spiced which worked very well for us. We did the ala carte rather than the Feed Me menu and tried the grilled octopus and kingfish as well. All good but broccolini was something that was truly outstanding.
