We were VERY impressed by the food and the service at Ithaka Greek Restaurant. We just wish we had more time in Victoria so that we could have dinner at this restaurant again. It's the best Greek food we've ever had!

Ithaka never disappoints, it is a regular spot for us for dinner. Food is great, very affordable and the welcome is always extremely warm. Make sure you make a reservation though, it has become so popular with tourists.
