Disappointed by the service. We felt like we were being rushed, and like we were imposing on the staff. The menu is very limited, offering dishes that were very complex and confusing in terms of the flavour combinations.

An interesting restaurant with a typical 'Cuba St' setup - several disjointed rooms.
They have a good outdoor space at the back - inside (sort of).
The vegans in our party (or 4) were happy with the choice and we were happy with the Lamb - very nicely cooked.
But I found there was a lack of greens for the price, sure you can order a side but a bit of something wouldn't go amiss.

The staff were friendly and knowledgable.
Overall we were happy with our choice.

We can’t seem to walk by without calling in for cappuccino. We always have a perfect cup of coffee. We love the service, friendliness and ambience here. Having eaten brunch here too we’ve also found that so tasty and freshly cooked. The best eggs florentine!

Meeting a friend for lunch? Need a great cuppa while out shopping? Want a great, relaxed atmosphere to sit and plan your day? Olive is your place. The food is fresh and delicious with good vegan choices. Friendly service. It’s my favorite place in town for a bite.

Had a lovely vegetarian meal with stuffed mushrooms, cashews and wild rice. Amazing! Wait staff were wonderful and there was a lovely atmosphere in the outdoor area. Shared a table but didn’t feel crowded.
