The staff at ginger olive made our night. We didn’t have to ask for anything, if our drink glasses were empty the staff were on it, recommendations were amazing, the staff knew the menu back to front, would absolutely recommend and will be back for next trip to Melbourne. Well done to Ryan, Diane and Richmond

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Ginger Olive during our stay in Melbourne. We had the Melange of Seafood signature platter for two that was really well prepared and wonderful. The wait staff was very friendly and the environment is welcoming to regular and new customers alike..

Went here for a weekday lunch and was very impressed. Service was impeccable. Friend and I both ordered the seafood linguine; it was a good portion and high quality. Very reasonably priced.There were also lunch specials so I’ll definitely be going back to try out those.

Had dinner at Ginger Olive after viewing reviews in Google. My hubby had the tenderloin steak, it melts in your mouth. I had the seafood platter, everything on the platter was fresh & tastes 😋. Ambience was very nice and the service was super friendly & helpful especially Diane. Value for money. Will go again before we leave Melbourne. Keep up the good work.

The best dining experience is when we are seated in the restaurant, everything is prepared beforehand, what's more, a first-class intimate service is provided after finishing each course. We started off with the most delicious ginger olive mixed platter and shared a delicious dessert afterwards!Shoutout to Ginger Olive for a great feed and amazing service experience esp the lovely girl that served us Gem/Jam for being so patient and attentive to our needs,our glasses never ran out of water!She is amazing!(P.s Kindly tell her we enjoyed Wicked The Musical and it’s of course AMAZING!) We will definitely come back soon,Best food and service in Melbourne!!!❤️ overall 10/10 Cheers 🥂

Absolutely the best steak ever. But more. Such a wonderful ambience in the heart of what Melbourne is famous for. The laneway views, the general atmosphere. The incredibly friendly, relaxed and efficient staff. Others (including my Italian wife) had pasta and it was sensational - and that is no small praise. Overall a very memorable night and we will be back again soon

I recently dined at this place and it was an exceptional experience from start to finish. The moment I walked in, I was greeted warmly and promptly seated. The service was incredibly fast; our order was taken promptly, and our food arrived within minutes.The cleanliness of the restaurant was impeccable. Tables were spotless, and the kitchen area was visible and well-maintained. It's always reassuring to see a clean kitchen in action.Now, let's talk about the star of the show: the beef ribs. Oh my goodness, they were absolutely divine! Tender, juicy, and packed with flavor, each bite was a culinary delight. The meat practically fell off the bone, and the BBQ sauce was the perfect balance of tangy and sweet.Overall, Ginger Olive exceeded my expectations in every way. Fast service, spotless cleanliness, and mouthwatering beef ribs make this place a must-visit for any BBQ enthusiast

We have been to this restaurant twice already and will be back again! Not only is the environment a classy but relaxing vibe in itself but the food is absolutely mouth-watering. My boyfriend and I shared a beautiful seafood platter which we demolished in seconds and have also tried the ribeye and tenderloin steaks which were delicious. I am always on the search for a good piña colada and Ginger Olive did not disappoint. Even though it was not specifically on their drinks menu, the staff went out of their way to make little adjustments to an already existing cocktail to give me the piña colada that I have been longing for. The customer service was second to none. A special mention to Kyle, Ryan and Sophia. It was the friendliness and excellent customer service that made our experience that so much better! Thank you so much! 👏
