Amazing Italian Food

The Rustic Olive is certainly one of the best if not the best restaurant on the Redcliffe shoreline. The food is full of flavour and as it is a BYO with a very reasonable $2 corkage you are able to match your choice of wine and food perfectly.

We sat outside in the later part of the evening for some dessert. Because the restaurant was very busy we did wait a long time and we had the impression that we were not only a low priority but probably a bit of an inconvenience. We ordered two desserts, two bottled waters and 2 coffees. We asked about the way... More

This restaurant is so popular that there are 2 sittings. Make sure you make a booking as they may not be able to take walk ins. Not bad for a little place like Redcliffe. Great food with great service. Excellent host and the staff are attentive.Their Pizza's are "eccellente"

The sheer number of people at this restaurant says plenty about it. The service is good; the food is tasty; and the servings are very big. I'm impressed with the enormous variety of dishes that come from various combinations of pasta type; sauce type and main ingredient. This is very smart.

This restaurant has terrific food at reasonable prices. It does require booking and should you want to dine with a larger party get in early. They will adjust the menu where they can. The view is amazing. Couldn't fault the staff!!

We had coffee and a snack on the outside terrace in front of the restaurant sitting in a nice sea breeze from Moreton Bay. Coffee was fine as was the snack without being outstanding. Service was friendly and fast.

We stopped in for lunch today and I had a chicken Caesar salad. I ordered a drink that didn't come until after our meals had arrived and id already requested again. The standard of the salad was awful. Huge lumps of fat attached to the bacon and the chicken didn't really taste of anything, very unappealing. Add into this the... More
