This is my favourite restaurant in Melbourne, always great food and service. They really try hard to make a night memorable and special. I love the new space, works really well. I can't recommend enough.

Interesting French Parisian experience

Absolutely fantastic! The food was incredible- especially the Parmentier de cochon (a pulled pork shepherds pie) and the service was impeccable.

We had the degustation last night and it was amazing. Authentic French at its finest with incredible service to accompany it. The flair that they give the dishes is incredible and everything on the plate was delicious. Thank you Chez Olivier!

We dined here because we adored the old location of Chez Olivier. The new location is laid out very awkwardly. The seating is uncomfortable for extended periods of sitting. The acoustics of the restaurant are terrible, and many of the patrons are extremely loud, and become increasingly so in an attempt to be heard over each other. My dining companion and I could not carry on a conversation during our meal because of the ambient noise. The servers, whilst lovely and engaging, could and would easily overlook attending to our table promptly. Despite all of this, the food was as amazing as always. Unfortunately, the new environment is not at all conducive to a pleasant dining experience. I do not think I will return.
Dear Sir or Madam, We truly value your patronage over the years. We had to leave our home of 14 years in Greville with a heavy heart. We couldn't reach an agreement with our landlord and the premises were dangerous for both staff & customers. We have now been in our new home for a little bit over two month and are still figuring out the dynamic of the new space. We appreciate all feedback to help us make this space our very own. We acknowledge the noise issue and are already looking at various solutions that would fit. We are going to act quickly on this and hope you'll give the new location another go. Warmest regards,

About Chez Olivier - Le Bistro

Can’t go wrong! Whether you feel like a crisp, light lunch in the dining area, or a fully-fledged and committed degustation with the end result of sinking into a large lounge afterwards, you can enjoy the ambience that is Chez Olivier. It is one of the loveliest French restaurants in town. Here you will find traditional dishes such as escargot– snails cooked in garlic – or a beautiful goats’ cheese salad. But whilst they use traditional French recipes, they also like to use exclusively Australian ingredients and in a style that is their own interpretation of what it is to be Australian. Here the sophisticated and caring staff urge you to thoroughly read the menu and take your time in ordering. And you will not be disappointed when the food arrives. Pop in for one of their well-loved Duck and Pinot nights on a Wednesday, or even speak with them about having your next work or social event here under the guidance of their function staff. Their wine list is smart, their staff even smarter and the food is of the very highest quality. Best Dish: Boeuf Bourgignon
