I had not been for some time but service, ambiance and a varied, generous-serve menu mean I'll be back! My friends -locals - had not been before and were fulsome in THEIR praise and plan to return.

We are regular clients of this restaurant. It seems that the service has gone downhill somewhat, which is a real shame. The food however, has always been very good. Disappointed with the cheese platter which offers very small portions of cheese. The cheeses didn't look fresh and neither was the apple and the apricots, again disappointing.

Staff there were super friendly and food we ordered were delicious. The chicken and prawns from the chicken and avocado with grilled prawns were cooked to perfection and the sauce just delectable. It was my first time eating venison fried in bread crumbs but it was a pleasant experience. Definitely a thumbs up

About The Olive Tree

All In the Family There’s a reason The Olive Tree has been around in South Melbourne since 1971. Simple, honest Italian food – that’s what keeps patrons coming back. Tucked away on Park Street not far from Domain Interchange, The Olive Tree has charm in abundance with its brick-lined walls and the light streaming in through the front window. For a romantic date, dinner with friends, or a special occasion, The Olive Tree offers something for everyone. The menu is bursting with classics. Go for the oysters, smoked Tasmanian salmon, fried calamari or barbeque octopus to start. Patrons rave about the pasta dishes, which are simple but full of flavour. Choose from vegetarian penne or fettuccine with shrimps, scallops, mussels, calamari, prawns and fish. Whether you’re in the mood for something from the grill, a traditional veal parmigiana or beef burgundy, there’s a solid selection for mains, too. If you’re looking for a meal that will truly warm you up, head to The Olive Tree. This family-owned restaurant is sure to treat you like you’re part of the family too. Best dish: Duck risotto
