Sorry you didn't have a nice experience but I think you've got this Olive Tree mixed up with another venue - We don't trade on Sundays & didn't have a private function booked on 6th May. We're at the Ground Floor Park Street, South Melbourne....More

This place has been around for probably more years that me. Very popular with the older traditional crowd. Table cloth service with traditional winter foods like streaks and ribs and pastas. Great deserts. Big portions.

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!
