We where excited about going to this place for supper. Restaurant was located in a simple area to get to and was easy to find. Parking was small but we where able to find a spot on a busy night. We where greated at the door by the owner or a manager. He was very pleasant and made us feel... More

The Olive Tree is a true gem. The menu offered great variety of Greek/Mediterranean cuisine. The backn wrapped scallops and seafood linguini were both exceptionally tasty. Nice atmoshpere and decent prices. Highly recommend this restaurant for your next dining experience.

The Olive Tree is a gem. While there are several great places to eat in Sydney, this one never disappoints. The food is good, portions are large and there's often something different to be had as a special. I was there just last week and had the best Turkey burger but better than the food, the service was outstanding.

Seven of us went here for dinner. Most of us have eaten here before but we were caught out by the new menu as the choice is limited and different. To start we ordered the tzatziki dip, the warm cheese dip and two of the bacon wrapped scallops. These were all good. We then ordered a peppercorn burger, which is... More

The service was great, right from the minute we walked through the door. Meals were delivered in record time and were hot and delicious with kind of a comforting flair on the menu. Varied menu and reasonably price.

A wonderful spot to sample Mediterranean, Greek, Italian or Moroccan dishes, plus the usual diner fare. In checking recent reviews, it sounded as if there was to be a major menu change, but when we arrived, we found lots of good selections. Nothing out of the ordinary, except some haphazard service. Just two wait staff were handling the entire dining... More

Food presentation was sub -standard. Looked forward to this meal only to be disappointed with the food. Ordered fish with vegetables and salad instead of pototoes. They served the fish with salad and no vegetables. They said since you ordered the salad we didn't give you the vegetables. Wow... Need to ensure the menu matches what they put on the... More
