First opened in 1971, The Olive Tree has established itself as one
of Melbourne’s iconic Steak & Fish Houses.
Distinguished by the old olive tree that stands at the front; for many
The Olive Tree evokes memories of the ‘good old days’.
Today, the menu is extensive and includes meals that are
affectionately referred to as ‘the classics’. Our philosophy for generous
portions of quality fresh produce has stood the test of time.

Be it a quick lunch, business meeting, casual dinner or social gathering,
The Olive Tree is the ideal place!
