I have no idea how this is one of Victoria's best restaurants. There is no skill to this cooking: fried rice, fried potatoes, boiled veg, grilled kebab. The owners don't even try and do any better than this and add their own creativity... really you could cook food like this at home if you really wanted to. Anyway, rant over...... More

The staff were very friendly and efficient. The portions were plentiful, the quality was very good and the food prices were excellent value. As with most restaurants the wine prices were too high. But the water was free! The restaurant is popular so best to book.

Have you ever gone out for dinner last minute to a restaurant you've never been to before assuming it will be an average dine in Victoria. BUT then sit down and feel like suddenly your on vacation in a different country, get serenaded while eating fabulous food and drinking fantastic wine then smash plates while shouting "Opa!" And leave wishing... More

We order the Greek platter and we served the Greek salad first and our server Dimitri brought us chilled salad plates to put our Greek salad on which I thought we as a nice... More

We picked Ithaka because of great reviews (and we love Greek food) and it definitely lived up to all our expectations! The food was delicious, and the atmosphere was so fun! There was music, dancing, and we even got serenaded at our table! It was the prefect place to celebrate a birthday. Would definitely come back next time we are... More

OMG. The food was amazingly good. I had the pork souvlaki and my husband the lamb souvlaki. Everything was delicious and the veggies were fresh (not the reheated frozen ones). The staff were amazing too. They treat you like regulars and family. They danced too. We highly recommend this restaurant. We would definitely go back.
