Excellent service and cusine

The location is a bit remote but the reputation has been maintained over the years. For that special night out you can select wine from almost anyplace in the world, including the Okanagan, and sample a main course commonly not available. It truly is unique.

We were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary and chose this place as we had heard so many good things about it that we thought it the perfect place for our celebration. The restaurant is tucked into the end of Commonwealth Road in lake country, about 7 minutes north of the Kelowna airport. Since it was Valentine's weekend it was decorated... More

Neither good nor bad in concept, the tomato sauce used for the spag as well as most anything else on the menu that involves tomato sauce, is not traditional in nature it is very carrot heavy. I personally did not mind it however for other people I was eating with who were expecting a traditional tomato sauce; this was not... More

Our great friends took us for dinner for our anniversary to this quaint fun, romantic out of the way restaurant sat. Night. The food and bevies were good, although both my rib eye steak and my friends were cooked too well. She ordered rare and I medium, they did not come to us as ordered. But we politely overlooked that.... More

We had an early dinner here on a Sunday night (in between Christmas and New Years) so it was very quiet in the restaurant. I think it is usually a very energetic spot which is the type of atmosphere most prefer. I enjoyed my dish - though it didn't blow me away (bruschetta appie, gnocchi entrée); when it comes to...

We have tried this restaurant twice mainly because there have been some good reviews but I have to say both times were not what I expected. First time we were a party of 4 and all four main courses were just OK but nothing to rave about. Tried it again this weekend and same thing, food OK, really overpriced for... More

The unpleasant and downright rude behaviour of the owner/manager left a very unpleasant taste in our mouths and we will not be back. She needed our table for the next reservation and was extremely offensive in her altercation with us. We were leaving on time and I don't understand why the next people to come in would be treated with... More

We had dinner here on a Thursday night. There was a small jazz ensemble playing as we arrived. The set lasted through the first part of the meal and was really relaxing. We had the crab cakes as the appetizer and I had the pork tenderloin with gargonzola. It was excellent. We chose a local pinot noir after intensive review... More

Any prime rib lover will absolutely enjoy Ricardo's blackened prime rib! The menu is diverse and the atmosphere of the restaurant is friendly and welcoming. Reservations are recommended, but not always necessary if you come early. The al fresco dining during the summer is wonderful, and the cosy atmosphere inside is great in the winter. Ricardo's cookbook is a worthwhile... More
