Thought we were eating Mediterranean as restaurant suggests. Previously was lovely. This time a one hour wait for dinner and every dish drowned in cream and butter. Even salad was drowned in overpowering commercial dressing. All eight of us felt sick and totally disappointed. What a shame!!

Seen the restaurant had been open for a while and finally decided to give it a go. Very impressed! First impression was the wine list where you instantly realise, "They're not trying to rip me off!". Started with the trio of dips with Turkish bread - all very tasty and well presented. Then went for the pork belly on red cabbage entrée which was very moist, tender and tasty. For the main I had the eye fillet with mushroom ravioli and it was tender and perfectly cooked. Finally finished off with the Greek assortment for desert which was delightful. Had a great meal and will definitely return.

We recently dined with NZ guests at Oliv. The ambience of the restaurant was great. We all had lovely meals, and the service was excellent. The waitress was friendly and very efficient. Unbeknown to us, they have a promotion on at the moment, of a free bottle of wine when 4 people dine there. An added bonus!
We would highly recommend others to dine there - all in all it was a fabulous evening.

Came out for our second dinner at Oliv and can only say that the food was great. The first time we were here it was good but this time it was fantastic. The veal scalapinni was better than one I had in Lucca in Tuscany. If that doesn't some it up I dont know what would.
