This lovely restaurant can rival any high end restaurant in Vancouver We ordered from the fresh sheet. A fabulous phyllo pastry appy (Chicken & Chorizo Brioua) which set the tone and then entrees of Osso Bucco with polenta and Macadamia Crusted Ling Cod. Both were divine, the flavors unique. Don't be deceived by the casual decor, the food is anything... More

My dinner at Odika Cafe was a very pleasant experience. Not only was the service excellent but the food was delicious. The prawn appetizer was very tasty and was served with a nice dipping sauce. I ordered the wild mushroom ravioli and would highly recommend it. Of course, the desserts were too tempting and did not disappoint!

This place does not inspire confidence when you walk in - seeing a brightly lit 'rockstar' branded beverage cooler as the very first thing when you walk in is a bit disconcerting. (Note to the owners - move that cooler! It makes your place look like a cheap bar) However, the food is what it's all about. It was, simply... More

I have enjoyed lunch, brunch, afternoon espresso and dinner in this small cafe. The owners are the operators and a friendlier couple you won't find. Always willing to please, to modify, to conjure up your favourite, I have yet to be disappointed. French fries might not seem a reason to travel here, but once you taste theirs, you will be... More

We like to try and support our local businesses in Chemainus, and try Restaurants we haven't tried before. Lovely dining atmosphere, food was very prompt, the owner who was waitressing was very nice, and personable. I chose to have ribs. They can make or break a place for me. I was pleasantly surprised. They tasted amazing and we're very tender!... More

This restaurant always appears as number one on tripadvisor and we wanted to see why as we like so many other eateries in Chemainus. Our lunch there showed it deserves its reputation. Delicious!

I would HIGHLY recommend this restaurant. What it lacks in ambiance is made up by the service and food quality & presentation. I would go back in a heartbeat!
