What You'll Get


Mediterranean cuisine is renowned for the way its rich ingredients inspire innovative food-fighting techniques. Skillfully execute the Kebab Eye Jab or the Hummus Humdinger with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of upscale Mediterranean cuisine at The Black Olive, located down the block from Victoria City Hall.

The Black Olive entices guests with a menu of lamb, pasta, seafood, and other Mediterranean fare. Ardent accountants break from gazing into each other’s eyes by diving into a pair of crusted crab cakes ($13) with red pepper aioli. Kick start stomach gardens with a fresh vegetable and berry salad ($9), a mix of fresh herbs, veggies, and local berries tossed in a blueberry vinaigrette, before packing eager bellies with one of the savoury pasta, seafood, or meat entrees. The Mediterranean fettuccine ($18) infuses the classic dish with coastal allure, as the pasta is mixed with fresh basil, feta, tomato, wild mushrooms, and Greek olives. The popular half-rack of lamb ($26)—New Zealand spring lamb flavoured with rosemary and Cretan spices, in a red wine demi-glace—along with the other range options, including the pan-seared duck breast in a flambéed cherry sauce ($28)—invoke a sense of heartiness reminiscent of a burly cherub baby. With each dish cooked to order, the conscientious chefs pay special attention to food allergies, dietary restrictions, and other culinary demands.

Lube esophagi with an extensive wine list that includes British Columbia, West Coast, and international grape-infused selections. Sip on a 6-ounce pour of a Chilean merlot ($8.50) or share a more local white, like the Red Rooster gewürztraminer ($9) with a lucky date or former game show contestant.
