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!

We chose the Odika because of TA recommendations. Although we didn't have reservations we were able to get a table. Our hostess/server was absolutely wonderful. My partner enjoyed the crab cakes with a salad while I chose a seafood linguine. Unfortunately, it was the wrong choice. The pasta was poorly done. It seemed to me that it had been under... More

I had lunch there with a friend. The food is fresh and tasty. The service is very friendly and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. Prices are reasonable and I am looking forward to a return trip for dinner.
