“A Sydney Surprise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

We ate at this lovely little restaurant on Thanksgiving weekend. The menu looked very appetizing and we commented that we would like to come back to try the Mediterranian dishes. We ended up ordering the roast turkey special because my elderly mother wanted to make sure we had a "proper" thanksgiving meal and we were not disappointed. The restaurant has very pleasant atmosphere and decor. Background music was subtle and appropriate. Although the place was full and very busy, our server(Gerard) took the time to chat (and kibbitz!) with us. We look forward to returning and sampling their eclectic menu. I would highly recommend The Olive Tree.

“Quality, Satisfying, Affordable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

We dine at Olive Tree often for lunch and dinner, we always leave satisfied regardless of what we order. The chef prepares each dish with quality and originality and the wait staff are top notch. The ambiance is warm and intimate. Best of all the price is better than any other dining establishment in Sydney. Olive Tree has a great thing going and we're so fortunate to have it in our city.

A wonderful quaint restaurant. We missed it the first time we drove by. It is hidden in that area. Super good food. It was recommended by our B and B.

“Excellent taste!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

I've had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant with my daughter during the day and a special someone in the evening. This establishment never fails to deliver in service, ambiance, and quality of its food and service. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for an eclectic taste in both taste buds and atmosphere, The Olive Tree truly delivers!
