We ordered our meal to be delivered to our hotel room (Hotel Oswego) through the Dine in Victoria delivery system. It works great; delivery as promised and quite warm (but we were in a suite with a range to warm food if neede). We ordered calamari, greek salad and a chef salad. Everything was fine, even better than I expected.... More

My book club had 3 members who are Celiac and one who is also Lactose free, so the Olive Grove is a great place for us to eat. They have a large Gluten Free menu as well as many other delicious choices for others. The Celiac members each got one of their Gluten Free pizzas then shared among themselves. The... More

My husband and I ate here in late November 2016 when unfortunately for me I was in a great deal of physical pain from an arm injury. We were waiting 30 minutes for my physio appointment and I needed to take some medication that required food immediately. The waitress, sorry I don't remember her name, saw how much pain I... More

Everything was great (Service and food) The only thing I didn't like was the enforced tip. I always tip well anyway but believe it should always be an option.-----

If you are ever here, try the warm spinach salad. IT IS HEAVEN! Well, for salad people :). Service is good, selection of drinks good, and food never disappointing. Will have to visit again soon

I was excited to visit this restaurant because, as a Celiac, I was thrilled to hear they had a separate menu. Firstly, the place was tired and old. Secondly, the food was disappointing. Although the dip trio was good, the pasta was terribly overlooked and the sauce wasn't very tasty either. Overall, the whole experience wasn't great. I wouldn't return.

Others ordered lamb, ribs and more chicken. Everyone really enjoyed their food. The service was so great, we were impressed . Very efficient and... More

The meal was okay, the service was actually great, but the intestinal problems after were really not worth the experience. Don`t go there, just drive a little further and get some greek food closer to town.
