After a long day of travelling we walked in to the Olive Tree Cafe to finish the night with a delightful dinner. And thats exactly what we got. Staff is very helpful, friendly and cheerful. The food of the main menu is delicious and the place itself looks lovely.

As mentioned by others the service can be a bit slow but that didnt spoil it for us. When we came back the next day for lunch we were directly recognized and welcomed as such. What a lovely way to start the day.

If I must give one tip: the fries could be a bit cruncier.

I have eaten here a few times. The food has been consistently good. Prices are reasonable. Service has ben very cheery; except when they are run off their feet (which is fair enough). Really liked the way time was taken by our waitress to chat with an elderly customer who clearly wanted a friendly face to talk to; good on them for obliging him. I did not mind waiting.

We had a breakfast, a lunch and a dinner at the olive garden and all were excellent with good ingredients well prepared. The staff were very friendly. The cafe isn't luxurious, but comfortable especially if the weather is good enough to allow the outside to be used.

This place used to be the best place in Te Anau but standards have dropped incredibly low. The food and sometimes service is incredibly terrible

The restaurant staff was overwhelmed with a full house, and service was slow. The food was decent. Opt for the simpler dishes. Sticky date pudding -- delicious
