Had a gr8 night, lovely view of Harbour by the warm heater. A few staff such as Assos was outstanding, while a pretty “backpacker lady” was not helpful ( she assumed what we JUST ordered 1 minute ago already cooked & could not be changed rather than checking w kitchen the way most trained staff wld do). Overall, food was lovely, especially stuffed battered zucchini flowers.

Booking with Dimmi excellent and good table reserved on busy Saturday evening. Service and attendance was good. Unfortunately, the food was a let-down on a special occasion - salmon was bland, snapper tasteless, daughter's linguini was dry and left half and worst was son's fish n chips which we tasted after he ate some to find fish partly uncooked and left stale horrible taste in mouth - truly dead. Olivos refunded the meal but seriously the chefs should not be serving this.

About Olivo Restaurant

An Italian all-rounder. Boasting beautiful waterfront views and an international mix of tourists and local diners, Olivo Harbourside is a great Italian restaurant on the busy boardwalk. Hungry tourists stop to browse the menu, while in-the-know regulars stroll in to grab their favourite harbourside table. Chef Glynn Pedlar aims to please with his extensive menu; there are burgers, handmade pastas, salads, fresh seafood, steaks and even kangaroo (much to travellers’ delight!). The beverage list is even longer, with a huge range of Australian and imported wines, beers, spirits and sparkling, as well as a list of classic and original cocktails. Any night of the week, there are regular specials and deals, as well as a handy early morning breakfast menu. As expected, it’s busy on nights with the Darling Harbour crowd, but it’s a great place to people-watch. A must for any tourist in town. Best dish: Angus rump steak.
