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!

Came here with a group of friends and we all agreed that Ginger Olive was going to be our new regular meeting spot. Fantastic food and staff we’re wonderful. Would highly recommend.
Quaint laneway bistro. Very nice ambience, could be romantic. Friendly service. Burger was tasty. Patty a bit on the drier side, but still good. Excellent value - portion was more than enough. Presented well. Can recommend.

Lovely staff and delicious food!! Highly recommend.
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.
The food (also the food presentation), staff and atmosphere are fantastic, service is great! Nice quiet place with right music background that adds to the ambiance. Interior is simple yet neat and elegant. Will be going back for sure.
Delicious food , nicely presented & good customer service . Will be back again surely👍🏾👍🏾

Introduced by family friends, now one of our favorites in Melbourne CBD.Food menu, ambiance perfect forMelbourne! The service is exceptional considering the crowd they have to cater for. We’ve been back a few times and you won’t be dissappointed.
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.
Excellent service, great food and pleasant restaurant

The ribeye wasn't particularly tasty, but the cooking and sides were very good. I probably should have tried the burger

Carnivore breakfast was absolutely fantastic and service second to none, well done 🙂

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! ❤️❤️❤️
Great food, a little different from the norm. Good service and friendly employees.

We popped into this restaurant to grab a bite to eat before a show, the staff were wonderfully attentive, friendly and obviously take great pride in their work. Our food was absolutely lovely & the fries were delightful will definitely keep this place in mind when I next venture into the city

Service was wonderful, food was amazing. Took the entire family and the kids loved it as much as the adults. Every dish was fantastic. Will be back for sure and sooner rather than later. A hidden gem
The food is just superb and the service is excellent. Please do visit this gem of a resto in one of Melbourne’s iconic alleys. Definitely a place to watch. Don’t forget their buko pandan creme brulee, it is everything👌
Excellent service here. The bbq platter was very nice, especially the beef ribs. The beef ribs just melted in your mouth, they also had a slight Indian taste to them too.

Lovely food. Really enjoy the seared salmon with pasta. Had lunch here 4 times in the past month, if only it was closer to my workplace I would visit more. Enjoyed the cheese cake too.

The Ginger Olive restaurant is a beautiful place to eat. The staff are extremely friendly and very humble. The food was very nice with a good variety on the menu. The prices are very reasonable. My wife and I have eaten at many restaurants and this one has been one of the best experiences. Will definitely go again when back in town.

My husband and I had surf and turf share platter this time. Everything was cooked to perfection, the standout is the barramundi and the bbq pork. Impeccably hosting by Eddie and Betty a real treat to come to this place. Very reasonably price menu. Thumbs up to the whole team. Never disappoints. A real hidden treasure.
We celebrated my son’s birthday at Ginger Olive, we were so amazed. The food and atmosphere was excellent especially the service. We highly recommend the place. We can’t wait for our next visit to Ginger Olive.
Ive been here a couple of times and food was always amazing! I ordered the Angus Porterhouse steak and was cooked to perfection, had the mango crepe and finished off with Turmeric latte, yum!!! Thank you Chef Ed and Betty!
Delightful food and very tasty! Great sizes, great value and delicately handled ingredients. 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.
Attentive staff, Beautiful set up, food was very well priced and tasted sensational. Definitely pop back with the missus as we hadn't had a chance to try all the menu. Love the family owned business, they tend to care more for their customers!
P.S: Great place for a business meeting too, the place is not too loud.
this place has it all, the food was beautiful, everything made with a little twist, a personal touch that just elevated from a meal to an experience. Host was great too, informative and interesting. loved this place.
Had a great early dinner at this new restaurant before the football on Saturday night. A varied and interesting menu at very reasonable prices and most importantly everything was delicious. Warm and attentive service from the staff. We hope to return during a future trip to Melbourne.
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!😀😀
I had the Seafood Linguine which was delicious and my husband had the pork ribs that he would highly recommend! 😋 The atmosphere was cosy and the service was friendly. The menu has a range of options and is very reasonably priced for the quality of cuisine. Would definitely be back and would recommend this restaurant to friends and family. 👍🏻😊
Another great night at our new favourite local hotspot! Two Friday nights in a row, this one with friends. Great food and very good value for money in the heart of the city. Looking forward to our next visit!
