We recently dined at Periklis restaurant because it got extremely high ratings in a recent "Local's Favorite" survey in the Times-Colonist newspaper. Unfortunately, the Times-Colonist was also hosting a loud volunteer appreciation dinner that night, so our meal was constantly interrupted by loud door-prize announcements! We would have appreciated being told that the large party would be using microphones and speakers, but it didn't distract us from our meal too much.

As a vegetarian, I went with the vegetarian plate. This had a lot of food. Lemony potatoes, steamed vegetables, rice and Greek salad were served as accompaniments to the spanakopita (pastry with spinach) and tyropita (similar pastry filled with feta cheese), plus dolomades (stuffed grape leaves) in a lemon-egg sauce. The food was very good, but there was just too much for me! One person ate a gyro (pronounced euro), which seemed to be meat, veggies and sauce wrapped in pita bread and served with Greek salad. Someone else chose a mixed plate with kalamari, dolomades, Greek salad and other meaty-type things. The last diner had a plate that was half hummous and half tzatziki, with pita bread for dipping, plus a bowl of white-bean soup.

Everyone was satisfied with their dinner. The restaurant owner frequently comes from table to table to ensure everyone is enjoying their meal. This restaurant would be great for groups and families, because everyone can find something on the menu and nothing is seasoned in a super-spicy or unusual way.

The complete menu can be found online at the link below, along with contact information and a map.
