We recently dined at the Rustic Olive and had a wonderful evening. The food is really delicious and very generous portion sizes. My husband has a large appetite and struggled to finish his main. He had reef and beef which was overflowing with delicious fresh seafood and perfectly cooked beef. I had the barramundi which had a really tasty fresh... More

The below platter was awesome, but please hold the salad and all that flat bread and replace it with yummy sour dough bread and a small bowl of olive oil or olive oil and vinaigrette for dipping bread with the below platter. It would tick all the boxes with a great view and awesome service and great food :) Antipasto... More

The restaurant was extremely busy to the point where I was yelling at my partner across the table just to talk to eachother, even then we had to lip read. I ordered fettucini monara? (the seafood pasta dish) - it was over cooked and was gluggy to eat. I ate the salmon parts to the dish and pushed the rest... More

This place has, by FAR, the BEST FOOD EVER!!! It can get a little crowded & noisy, but only because everyone wants to eat there. You won't be disappointed. MUST GO!!

The most delicious cheesy calzone I have ever tasted! Our mains were all bursting with flavour and definitely excellent value for money. The service was fast, friendly and efficient and the atmosphere was buzzing. I cannot wait to get back there! The restaurant was packed inside and out and it was a Tuesday evening. Final word - YUM!

Amazing... We loved every mouthful. After moving away from the area we got to eat at Rustic Olive again tonight and it was fantastic. The kids had schnitzel and chips and gluten-free pizzas. The ham on the ham and pineapple pizza was smokey and delicious. As usual the portions were huge. The gluten-free chicken and pumpkin rissotto was tender and... More

I had lunch here with a friend. Very friendly service and they were packed. We shared a vegetarian pizza and salad which was very nice. The menu is extensive. It is BYO so were able to bring our own alcohol. Very reasonably priced and overlooking Redcliffe and the water. Will definitely come back here again.
