    We loved Chez Olivier. We enjoyed the lovely french accents from the waitstaff, who were also very friendly and knowledgeable about their wines. We weren't particularly hungry so we only ordered main meals with side dishes. I had the Tournadoes Rossini and my husband ordered Canard a l'orange which were both fabulous. We will definitely go back again.

    Classic French food. The food was good but could have come out a little bit quicker.

    Went to Chez Olivier - Le Bistro to celebrate partner's birthday - thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Had some oysters, fois gras, duck and beef bourguignon. Food was delicious and the staff provided excellent service. Would recommend this restaurant for an intimate dinner experience.

    This was a first time experience and we were super impressed. The food and presentation was superb and the wait staff very competent and friendly. We will definitely come again. The only area that we were slightly disappointed with was,that on arrival and seating, we had to wait a long time before any one approached us to order drinks. We were happy to wait for food orders as the restaurant was busy resetting tables between shifts as we were an 8:30pm sitting. I have been told this restaurant has been established with a fine reputation a long time. I and my guests were overall very impressed. Well done.

    Had been there before when in Greville st and loved it. Went again for wife's birthday and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. Excellent French cuisine, very attentive and yet efficient service and loved the ambience of the place. Will recommend to friends and family.

    Everything we had was top notch - from the bread to the scallops - the price reflects the level of expertise of the chef. Only disappointment was the green salad didn't seem typically French.

    We had a very pleasant and relaxing evening at Chez Olivier. Two of us enjoyed the bisque - very rich flavour whilst . The varied mains of salmon, chicken, boeuf bourguignon, and vegetable risotto were beautiful and a good and wide representation of the food choices. Very friendly staff all keen to help and no doubt with French heritage!

    Not as atmospheric as in its previous location but still offering delicious French standards. I don't know why but it seemed more 'special' when in Greville St, Prahran in a narrow old building that seemed as French as the food

    Just one front of house person. She did well to keep up with patrons in on the day. Didn’t like cinnamon butter, stick with traditional butter. Home made bread was good. Coffee not great.

    Good French food, well presented, good spacing between dishes and excellent service by the wait person. Aware that holding large stocks of wine is expensive but the wine list is a bit limited and without having to be large it needs to have a larger number of white and red wines particular French ones quite a number of which are not very expensive and of good quality and profitable at $14/$16 a glass. Overall our friends and us had an enjoyable dinner.

    Excellent food, probably the best Coquilles St Jaques I have ever had, and the steak was just great. All agreed it was an excellent choice for a farewell among foodies.

About the restaurant

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.
