Great atmosphere, food good value for money. Would be great to have a bar operating upstairs on a busy Saturday night for non-function diners.

Burgers and schnitzels were generous size and my husband said one of the best schnitzels he's ever had. Another guest said he has eaten lots of chicken parmys and also thought this one was one of the best ever.

We always catch up with friends who travel to the city by train at the Dove and Olive, everyone comes from different directions so it's a great Central Spot and a short walk, the food is always great and great prices The boys love the beers

I had my farewell party with my friends and they all liked this place! The food was good quality and still decent price. Also loved their happy hour :)

Beef short rib was very tender and quite a large portion. Bit of a meatfest! Was busy (Fri night) but the staff really looked after us. Thank you :-)
