The Purple Olive

The Purple Olive Restaurant The Purple Olive Restaurant is based in Brisbane&acirc;€™s Fortitude Valley just on the border of New Farm

The Purple Olive Restaurant The Purple Olive Restaurant is based in Brisbaneâ??s Fortitude Valley just on the border of New Farm. The Restaurant has now been in operation for 18 years. The Purple Olive Restaurant is a family run, owned and operated business. We strongly believe that our concept is what makes us great and has got us through the high and lows of running the restaurant over the years. Our concept is a very simple philosophy, that we are here to serve all those who enjoy exceptional, exciting and inexpensive food. We love the classic flare of Italian simplicity, substantial dishes based on great local seasonally available produce. The Menu consists of just such style classic Italian dishes with a modern twist from Home Made pastaâ??s and breads through to seafoodâ??s and braised meats as well as delightful desserts. This is everyday eating at itâ??s very Best

Staff are lovely. Food in unbelievable - good size serves and so full of flavour. Cheap corkage. Do it!

The Purple Olives's hearty, flavoursome and generous meals always keep me and my friends coming back whenever we're craving a great Italian feed. The menu is extensive and there will definitely be something to please everyone. Definitely check this one out! Parking can get tricky being a busy shopping and restaurant precinct so leave some time to find a park.

Great Italian food. Their pumpkin gnocchi is fantastic.

OVER 10 years AGO

I went here with the wife and another couple and was very impressed. The waitress did a fantastic job of selling the evening's special - so much so that we did not even look at the menu and all ordered the same thing! We were all really glad that we did as the food was excellent, as was the service and general ambiance.

OVER 11 years AGO

This restuarant offers something for everyone. Authentic mediteranean food and pasta for those wanted some italian flare thrown in. Great location on James street, plus it is BYO with a bottle shop across the road. Had a great night here! Definitely recommended.
