Out of the way but worth finding!

This relaxed pub has excellent food. We have visited here a few times & each time we have walked away happy with whatever we have eaten. Likewise our friends. Minstrel is not downtown so you would have to make it a mission to find them, but you will be happy you do. I would suggest calling ahead... read more

Firstly, the service was excellent but the food was average at best. My steak was painfully thin and overcooked while my wifes lamb shanks were ok. The menu sounds a lot better than the food that arrives.

Loved everything from the meal to the staff. Beautiful atmosphere inside and out with an amazing patio with a giant tree that is filled with lights for you to dine under, very romantic. Prices and portions are perfect.

I love this place. It is beautiful inside and although the patio was still closed for this visit, I have been there before and can say it is one of the prettiest patios I've seen at a restaurant. The food and wine were both wonderful. We stayed for the first set of music and were impressed with the band. We... More

Love this restaurant and it never disappoints. We try to eat here at least once whenever we are in Kelowna. They often have entertainment and if you want to really hear the entertainment dont sit in the booths sit at a table

If you want to try something a little different in a beautiful location this is for you. Tasty dishes, good portions, at a reaonable price. We take our guests here when they are visiting Kelowna.

Great live music while having dinner. Bands change frequently. Food was good. Patio open in summer, with nice garden. Make a reservation to get a table.
