I’m a regular here in Ginger Olive! Took my friends here and they loved it! Others even went back with their friends. Love the seafood linguine and the Ginger Olive platter. And for desserts, the pandan cream brûlée and the Ube truffle are top of my list! Great service too and very reasonable price!

First dinner out after the long lockdown, it was just fantastic! I have no clue why we have never been to this gem before. The service is very friendly, the food is definitely worth the price. Ribeye steak was the best we tried in Melbourne, it melts in your mouth! Thank you, we will come back.

Place was not the noisy side it's in a small lane. Staff was friendly and professional, they look after you well. The food was splendid! The grilled barramundi fillet was nicely done, crispy skin but still soft and juicy inside. The side salad was delicious too, the mangoes adds an extra layer of flavour 😻Will come back to try the other stuff.

We had - Signature Platters - BBQ & More ❤️Includes: Grain fed pork, slow cooked beef ribs, chicken, lamb ribs, Caesar salad and side chips 🍗🥩🍖Amazing tenderness and moist meat. Compared to others I tried their meat is not dry and I love it. It felt so mouthwatering and the sauce that they used to grill or bbq the meat made it highlight the savour was and so satisfying.They also have amazing customer service as they would refill your water every often and when you receive your food they would ask how it was. It's an amazing way of also building rapport to the customer and the staff are so hospitable.I really recommend this place! ❤️❤️❤️

Such a terrific location too - gorgeous atmosphere, quiet, cozy and inviting, right in the heart of the hustle and bustle of Flinders Lane and Degraves St. We loved talking with the owner and cook personally as well. It was like having dinner in his own home. We’ll be back.

Lunch at Ginger Olive today is definitely going to be the first of many visits. The Chicken Mushroom and Pancetta Linguine was delicious with a satisfying serving size. My boyfriend thoroughly enjoyed the Crispy Fried Chicken Burger but suffered from FOMO when the table next us had the beef ribs come out. So we’ll be back for that I am sure. The aptly named happy ending of the meal was the Mango Crepe, left you wanting another serving. Service was great, friendly knowledgeable and all the food came out in a timely manner. Family friendly atmosphere and central location means you can stop by whilst shopping in the city. Highly recommended!😀😀
