We ordered 2 pizzas on line, being Valentines day, we had already been out for lunch and didn't feel like cooking tea. Wow, were we impressed to the max with these 2 pizzas. We will definitely order from there again without hesitation. I can't explain how fresh and yummy these were. Give these guys a go, you won't be disappointed... More

We were a table of 7 and not one of us enjoyed our meal. I would regard it as my worst dining experience ever. My family is Italian and we have travelled to Italy many times, and I can tell you the food had no resemblance to Italian food what so ever.

The building just looked delightful - we were very keen to eat - the wait satff were very friendly but unfortunately the food had no flavour. The rissotto was swimming in liquid and had no flavour. Very disappointing indeed.

We expected to have a good Italian meal and we got what tasted like stuff out of jars. I could not eat my Spaghetti Bolognese. The meat was big lumps and the tomato sauce overpowering. My husband could not eat his either. The table was sticky and in fact the whole place was tacky and I would hate to see... More

We have been holidaying on the sunshine coast for the last four years, with the exception of last year. Having eaten at the Olive Tree previously and enjoyed it very much we saved it for the last night out. We ordered four different meals, which all arrived in a reasonable time, my husband had lasagne, a couple of bites in... More

The staff were very friendly and accommodating. A lovely cosy little place. The building itself is lovely and it's white exterior is very appealing. I have been visiting the Sunshing coast for 10 years and have always wanted to dine here. I was not disappointed. Beautiful food and service. I am going again next time.

Can I just say, going to The Olive Tree was the worst dining experience I have ever encountered. The pizzas were hardly even comparable to frozen pizzas found in the supermarket - a combination of soggy bread with cardboard-like toppings. The "smoked garlic aioli" tasted like - and I apologise for being crass - fecal matter. The Lasagne lacked any... More

Such good value and friendly service! We visited with little children and were made to feel at home as soon as we walked through the door. It really topped off our 5 night break at White Shells apartments. We'll certainly be back!
