Fodor's Expert Review Olo Restaurant

$$$ Downtown Victoria Canadian Fodor's Choice
Victoria's foodies rave about this small Chinatown bistro that serves up some of the city's most innovative fare, simply yet superbly. Many items like the smoked salmon and pasta are crafted in-house, and the locally sourced menu changes often and items often have a French flair. Example starters might include grass-fed beef carpaccio, or perhaps pea soup with cauliflower and an "egg" made from cheddar and carrot. Mains could be short-rib steak done "french-rare," from a local organic farm, or coho salmon with birch syrup. And the basil ice-cream is to die for. The high-arched windows, brick walls and sparse decor make the room feel airy yet warm, an ambience that emphasizes the restaurant's passionate foodie ethos. Open daily for lunch or weekend brunch, and dinner.
