“Terrible service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Whilst the food was acceptable the service was the worst I've experienced. The one waitress had such an attitude and the owner clearly wasnt interested in sorting out a bill problem we had. Definitely wont be back.

“What they cook, they cook well”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

The Olive is a mere 30 seconds walk away from Harris Park train station, and also very close to the Great Western Highway which is one of the major roads in Sydney. It is open Tuesday-Saturday* for lunch and dinner.

The restaurant only serves banquet style dishes i.e. they charge AUD $50-AUD $60 per person* and bring specific dishes to the table. For $50, you will get freshly made flat bread, four dips (my favourite is the beetroot), sausages (superb with lemon squeezed over them), Greek salad (including marinated yellow peppers), chicken skewers, and the most flavoursome and tender lamb you have ever tasted in your life. For $60, you get all this plus two seafood dishes.
There is also a comprehensive list of alcohol including a page of Greek wines, and a small dessert menu. Alcohol and dessert cost extra.

The restaurant has indoor and outdoor dining. The outdoor dining area is covered and in winter the heating is turned on. The sound system plays a blend of traditional and modern Greek music.

*This information is correct in October 2012 but may change in the future. Please refer to the restaurant’s website for their latest opening hours and prices.
