Don't trust these people, they write their own reviews on this site. Their food is mediocre and way over priced. Some friends recently went and said it was super salty, it took too long and it felt like they were eating in a trailer park.. oh wait. they were. Eat at one of the great restaurants a Predator Ridge Golf... More

What a delight this place is... recommended by my friend Matt Belair.. It is an unassuming success tucked away (near the airport). They have my favourite wine Nero D'Avola from Italy... it all started there. The staff, the owner Sue, the chef... it was a high performance team. Bring a friend, have some wine, take your time.. and be sure... More

Ricardo’s Mediterranean Kitchen Whenever I am up touring in the Kelowna or Lake Country wine regions, I usually reserve a night to dine at Ricardo’s Mediterranean Kitchen on the northern shore of Ellision Lake, just north of the Kelowna airport. To get there, turn east at the blue and white sailboat on highway 97. Ricardo’s features Italian décor and is... More

On a recent family trip to Kelowna I decided to book a dinner at Ricardo's and we were not disappointed! I requested a quiet table as I have a 9 month old baby who would be sleeping during our dinner and the hostess gave us a seat in the back corner which worked perfectly. We had their white Italian house... More

We were very excited to be going to Ricardo's as we'd heard lots of great things about this restaurant, but sadly all 4 of us were disappointed. Overall the food was ok, but nowhere near to being great. We ordered lobster pasta (which is actually a crayfish type shellfish) & was a reasonably generous portion of seafood, but the sauce... More

Our 3rd time back and probably never again. While the salads were good, the wait afterwards was so long that we got up and went outside for a stretch, (one for a smoke) No one finished their dinner as the food was bland, 3 dishes were warm and the one that was hot explains that the other three were ready...

We've been to Ricardo's a few times on our visits to Kelowna and have always found the food and service to be excellent. Last Saturday night was no exception. The ambiance is warm and friendly and the outdoor patio would be perfect in the summer. The pasta is exceptional. Reservations are required as this is a bustling restaurant.
