Stayed at the Econo lodge motel and walked about 2 mins down the road to the rustic olive. Service was friendly, just a tad slow but overall good. Main meals are around the $25-35 mark. We had the pasta and the lamb shanks, both big servings and yummy, we couldn't finish either and staff were happy to put leftovers in a takeaway container to take home. Was nice as we were able to have a few drinks and walk balk to our motel room.

My partner and I are vegan, and the Rustic Olive was happy to cater for us. We had 3 dishes to choose from, as well as an extensive wine list. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding.

I have enjoyed many wonderful meals at The Rustic Olive. Tonight I was really disappointed. My slow cooked pork was dry and hard to cut. The mashed potato was watery and not creamy at all. The plum sauce or lack of it was lacking in flavor. Over all this dish was a complete fail and considering i have eaten it everytime i went to this restaurant i was really disappointed.
Others at the table enjoyed wonderful Twice cook duck and Barramundi (albeit a bone was found) I have to say though the waiting staff were amazing and attentive and the meals came it in great time.

Excellent service, every team member seemed happy and eager to please. We enjoyed the porterhouse. Will definitely go again.

We stayed at the Motel next to the restaurant just so we could try the food at the Rustic Olive. We loved it. The restaurant is bright and cheerful, really well set up, and for a Thursday night - packed. The food was all and more than we expected. Decided to try the Mezz Platter which was so good that instead of a main we also shared the seafood platter which was exceptional. Everything about the restaurant was good, price, service, ambience. Can't wait to stay in Mildura again, we will certainly be back to the Rustic Olive.
