“Fabulous Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

My friends and I recently had dinner here and were delighted with the menu and were equally happy with our choice. I had the venison, fabulous. The service was very good as was the ambience. But all this comes at a price.

“Best kept secret outside of Brisbane”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

Most people don't put Toowoomba on the map but this place is a great reason to get out and explore the culinary dishes outside. Ask the waiter (Jason?) for his suggestions and just go with it. Incredible. We had a tapas plate of whatever the chefs had on offer.

ordered a glass of red and some crumbed olive tapas, this was just beautiful. Sat outside, enjoying the early evening, watching the street, and sipping my wine. Service was great!

“Extend a branch Enjoy an experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

The Olive Branch is both a chic bar and an intimate restaurant. The bar is up front with a great selection of wines and drinks and small eats. And once that has relaxed you there is a fine restaurant down the back of this surprising establishment whose menu covers great dishes, all delicately prepared and presented. It is a great total experience.

“Very expensive for very little”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

Mains were all around or over $40 and very small portions. The service was good. The tastes were fantastic. Very nice presentation, however the sizes were so small.
I had been looking forward to the experience however was left disappointed.
