Lunch special $19.90 was adequate.Barramundi, mango salad & Chicken Parma & chips.Parma was least enjoyed, dry, not nice flavour.Barramundi was nice, but small, sitting on lots of salad. Was tasty, but mainly cabbage. Too much.Service was friendly, and attentive.
Great food and atmosphere. You can get players of seafood it meats. Probably better to just get mains if you are in a group. Staff are attentive and the location is easy to find in a side street. You can dine outside as well. Great night out.
Never been here before but was pleasantly surprised. I got the carbonara and it was the best I've had in ages. Really rich, full of flavour and nicely presented. The people with me were also happy with their meals. The staff were friendly and helpful.I'd be happy to come here again.
Found another hidden gem in Melbourne CBD! We were looking for a place to have dinner and glad we came here. We ordered the signature platter dish (the ginger olive platter), and it was so worth it. Great place and good service. Definitely recommended 😀
Excellent service and delicious foods. Menus have a great variety of choices and presentation was exquisite. Will be coming back again very soon. Thank you Ginger Olive for our wonderful dinner. We really enjoyed dining in your Resto.
Amazing restaurant tucked into a small laneway. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful with the owner also coming out to see if everything was going well. I had the ribeye and it was the best steak I've had. Ever. The menu is reasonably priced and has something for everyone - the cocktails were tasty and really well priced. Overall great experience.
The place was nice and our servers were all lovely! The food had great flavour but the lamb ribs we ordered were very chewy and we couldn't eat much of it.Would recommend trying but just skip the lamb and get the other meats which looked delicious!
Amazing food (their signature platter is highly recommended!). Also exceptionally good service and nice atmosphere. Been there 4 times, every time food was amazing and waiters extremely polite and helpful. Highly recommend this place!
Very high quality food, fantastic flavours…. I got the Trio of Ribs and they all fell off the bone! The service was friendly and attentive. A surprise find as I was walking past, so glad I stopped by and gave it a chance…. Will be back for sure!
We visited with our family and Wow what fantastic food wine and service. Amazing flavours, most tender ribs and best fluffy wedges I’ve ever experienced. Gorgeous Heatcote wine, and all reasonably priced. Thank you for quality all round
My partner and i ate here last Saturday night before a comedy show, we found this close by on the internet.Cosy and intimate, we ate early (530pm) so only a few other tables came in after us. The gentleman serving us was very hospitable and helpful with questions. The mocktails were delicious, we thoroughly enjoyed our meals, the flavour combinations were super tasty, would definatly recommend and return. Thank you
Wouldn't have expected a restaurant like Ginger Olive in this lane. Stands out in the quality of food and friendliness of services provided. Also excellent price - value ratio. If you wish to experience great food (manly meat, but also vegetarian options) in a very friendly atmosphere, Ginger Olive is a choice not to be missed.
Went here for our work pre-Christmas celebration. Cannot believe I did not know about this place sooner. Fantastic communication prior to our booking. Staff were really efficient and attentive. Food was amazing. Everyone in my group agreed that they will definitely come back for more.
Can't recommend this restaurant enough! Food and staff were amazing! Very accommodating for us with our one year old. Also a great range of food. Being one vegan, a vegetarian and a meat eater it's hard to find places where we can all enjoy the food but I highly recommend the vegan pasta and Udon noodles and my partner loved the rib eyeWe will definitely be back when we stay in the city next ☺️
My wife had to take me to this restaurant Ginger Olive, oh wow the Ginger Olive Platter was awesome for two people, tasty tender and well presented and highly recommended at a very reasonable price. Thank you so much guys, thoroughly enjoyed the food.
Absolutely amazing amazing food. My wife and I had the platter for 2 and we enjoyed every bit of it. It is definitely a must try. The beef rib was the highlight of the platter, slow cooked just right with great sauce.
The family and I had a wonderful time and experience at the Ginger Olive this evening. We shared two lots of the platters and they were delicious and beautifully presented. Thank you for the great service and great food.
We dined before the VIC lockdown 5.0. This restaurant in Melbourne is located in the middle of CBD. The food was so yummy and delish especially the BBQ. The sweet potato was also yummers. The service is great! The only downside is small space and no Rice!
Ginger Olive is a hidden gem. Restaurant is small and cozy! Staff are very friendly and attentive. Food is delicious and platers have a great size. Truly recommend the ginger olive share platers and the beef bbq. Great value for money! I will come back.
First time dining, 2 of us. Good choice to order Ginger Olive platter to share and taste different food, plenty of meats, tasty and tender. Reasonable price, friendly service, cosy and clean. Will be back for sure.
Stopped in for a weekday lunch. Service was excellent and food came out in a reasonable time. I had the slow cooked pork ribs - excellent! My friends really enjoyed their meals too, looking forward to returning. Definitely worth checking out!
We stumbled across this little restaurant & we are so glad we did! The service was exceptional & the food was so delicious. So many options available!! Great environment & atmosphere. Really well priced. Overall we thought this was an excellent little find
Definitely a 4.5 star if I could. The service is very friendly, attentive and accommodating. The value for money is amazing! Great food and amazing flavours. Side salads and salads are beautiful, different and flavoursome. Good drinks menu that has cocktails, wine, beer, spirits and more, you won't miss out here. No complaints at all just missed half a star as it wasn't the wow I expected. Definitely worth a try. Great job ginger olive!
We spent five days in Melbourne and on the last day booked lunch here. The food was beautiful, and the staff were the most polite we encountered during our stay, from the booking through to leaving a really nice experience, thanks guys we'll be back
What a great meal and the service was fantastic. I couldn't decide between the beef or lamb ribs, so they made me a combo of the two. The ribs were perfectly cooked - tasty and tender, and it came with a nice green salad. My wife's boneless chicken was also a memorable dish. The portion size was generous and the price reasonable. The meal came out relatively quickly which was nice as we were going to the theater. The service was attentive but not overbearing. I had an enjoyable chat to Eddie the owner and the rest of the team were also very friendly. I highly recommend having a meal here.
One of my favourite places in the city for a delicious lunch of grilled barramundi with chips and mango salad. Located in Manchester Lane just off Collins Street it is place to enjoy a meal with excellent service. Try the tea cooler made with ruby grapefruit, green tea, honey and mint. Very refreshing. Have been here a number of times for lunch and it has never disappointed Prices are reasonable and nothing is too much trouble for Eddy and Betty I will be back again and again.
What can I say, a hidden gem ! Superb food, excellent service, great atmosphere. Most enjoyable dining experience in years. Thoroughly recommended, I can't praise Ginger Olive highly enough. Already looking forward to our next visit.
Wow, stumbled across this restaurant and glad we did. Great service from friendly staff and amazing food.Got the signature platter to share with a few sides and every dish was, cooked to perfection with amazing flavors.Well priced, small place with a nice atmosphere, would recommend you book.Highly recommend and will definitely be back, thank you for a wonderful evening.
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!
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.
The best service, best fusion food , celebrity citing and best BBQ pork boa in town!The lady owner is so kind and accommodating and especially the chef for the world class dining experience . Always delicious and never lets me down.
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.
