If you're charging that kind of price range, then it comes with expectations. We had friends visiting from out of town and we wanted to have a great meal. We had a reservation and my husband was sat blocking the aisle in front of the...More

We opted for Olo when we couldn't get into TA's top rated restaurant and couldn't have been happier. We sat at the bar which is are preferred choice anyway. The apparent simplicity of the menu does not capture the flavours within. The bartender was awesome...More

It's a small restaurant and takes reservations up to 10 people. It's best if you check out their website for more info.

Description
Relationships are forged over food at OLO - whether its friends and family enjoying a boat-to-table brunch or Executive Chef & Owner Brad Holmes finding farm-fresh ingredients from hard-working neighbours. Delicious food, laughter and good conversation are always on the menu. 'Olo' means 'hungry' in Chinook Jargon, a derivative language of English, French, Chinese and Chinook, and just like the Pacific Northwest was once a gathering place for traders, OLO is where the community comes together when hungry for more than just a meal. Serving up fresh local produce, Chef Brad is part of the Slow Food Chefs Alliance and switches up the sustainable menus depending on what's coming through the kitchen doors every day. Each dish celebrates life in B.C., using only the best ingredients available and working with amazing farmers, fishermen and foragers to provide an experience that captures the essence of Vancouver Island. Handcrafted seasonal cocktails showcase the best of Vancouver Island products and the bar program highlights the region's bounties with an impressive selection of B.C. distilleries, breweries and rare Canadian whiskeys. The thoughtfully curated wine list focuses on small-batch producers that showcase the Okanagan and Vancouver Island's best wineries, alongside premium international selections.
