The menus also include a variety of popular local dishes and dishes from the founder's homeland, Greece.

For better or worse, we no longer live in the time of Greek gods and gladiators, however, we can still eat like gods at the Olive Grove. Here you will find all your Greek favourites including Tzatziki, Moussaka and Spanakopita. If you have a large group dining the platters offer big portions for you and your crew to indulge.

While they may not fan you off and feed you grapes, The Olive Grove offers a cozy outdoor patio, and a comfortable ambience indoors. Don’t fret if you are G-Free, they had one of the very first Celiac friendly menus in the city. Hop on your chariot and get over to the Olive Grove for a truly Greek experience.

Sometimes nailing a concept for a restaurant is hard to do.  Frankie's take on a modern diner in the heart of downtown Victoria, not only nails it, but pounds down the details building itself as the definitive modern diner.

Open early till late (early bird specials t'boot!), this is one place you truly can bring the whole family and enjoy a good glass of wine. I'm sitting here over eggs, toast, hash (withe cheese!), and one of the better cups of coffee I've had all week, while getting love drunk ready over the menu. I'm by myself but I wouldn't know it. Friendly faces are everywhere and it feels like I've known the staff and Frankie all my life. Yep, that a diner. 

It's Frankie's.
