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

After it become apparent that the power outage was wide-spread, Chef Murray kindly offered... 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.

My wife and I had enjoyed this restaurant a number of times when it was located in Gold River, and we planned our trip to Victoria so we could stop for lunch to see how the owners were making out in Chemainus. It was delightful. I had the prawn curry and my wife had a vegetable curry. Both were excellent.... More

We don't get to Chemainus often but when we do, we like to eat at Odika. Food is still fresh and good as when they opened, but the service seemed a bit distracted this time around. We never did get asked if we wanted dessert or coffee, which we waited for as long as we could. Finally gave up and... More

A nice find in a part of the world with few imaginative menus. This establishment had a pretty ambitious selection in the "starters" and "mains" categories. Dessert was heavily biased towards cheesecakes. Starters had much to praise - the leek and Gorgonzola "creme brûlée" was tasty but could have been hotter. The grilled lettuce Caesar salad was tasty but the... More

Ordered take out because our 1 year old was sleeping. Figured the full orders are usually large so we ordered the half portion. Mushroom Ravioli and the Panang Prawn Curry. Was a little surprised at how small the half portions were for $17 each. The full orders were $28. They were both good however, the curry was very tasty, but... More

Since discovering this little place near the Chemainus Theatre, I have come back whenever I had the time, particularly if entertaining folks from out of town. The owner is a delight, putting her spin on her seasonings, flavors and presentation that is both delicious and a huge cut above ordinary fare. The place is very crowded on most theatre nights,...

We were in Chemainus for two days last week at a B&B and when we asked were to go for dinner - our hostess recommended Odika - what a great suggestion! When we arrived, it was busy, but we were seated promptly at the window. The menu has so many interesting and delicious sounding choices. I finally settled on the... More
