The platter 2 was so delicious, we love how the slow cooked beef was done and the taste of grilled chicken was great. Excellent service for all the staff members, made an extra effort to check on us on a busy saturday dinner night. I will definitely bring my family here on their holiday in Melbourne.

Enjoyed an amazing meal at Ginger Olive in the city (Shop 2/38 Manchester Ln, Melbourne). The food was amazing, the service was spot on and it had a lovely intimate vibe. We ordered one of the signature platters “Ginger Olive Platter for 2”, every bite was perfect. If you’re looking for a wonderful dining experience, give this a go!
