Called the restaurant last minute to accommodate 16 people as the hotel wouldnt (manteo) music was nice, food excellent ( curry chicken and thai mussels). Great wines. Worth checking out. Need a car or cab to get there. Great staff, very efficient and polite.

really enjoyed the crab crusted salmon/scallops, menu was hard to choose from everything looked so good. Have to go again to try signature lamb and salads. Service excellent and patio in a nice backyard setting, we really enjoyed!

I'm sorry to write a bad review because I think many Kelowna people like this place. Tonight was my second time here, the first was just drinks and appies. I had shrimp tacos and it came with a side of corn-like salsa salad. I immediately tasted something wrong with it and had a few of my friends try it too.... More

We went with a local couple and, although calling ahead and told of a table, were put out on the grass as all was taken. The "chips" are triangular pieces of pita - not fries. Beware English speakers ! Sauce that came with it was fine, spicy. But a big downer was the "Signature dish " the lamb shanks. Lamb... More

Had a great meal here with a group of friends. Sat on the patio and the atmosphere was fantastic. Started with a seafood chowder that was excellent, and for my main had a wood fired pizza. The sauce was unique and I loved it as it was a bit spicy and a little sweet. The service was very good and... More

I have never come across worse customer service. No just service, just rude and arrogant people working there. NEVER going back and i will go out of my way to tell as many people as possible. Management would not even reply to a complaint.

We were hesitant to go but wanted to see some live music and we were told the band plays from 08:00 to 10:30 so all during dinner. They kept the volume loud enough to enjoy but still able to easily have a dinner conversation. Our service was good, friendly and prompt and our meals were fantastic! The Mediterranean salad was...

This restaurant was highly recommended by a local winery and I am so glad we went. We arrived very late for lunch and the service could not have been more friendly. I ordered the clam chowder soup and WOW - this has to be one of the best soups I have ever had. The salads were amazing, we liked everything... More

The Minstrel is probably my favourite restaurant in Kelowna at the moment. Love the food. Service is always good and I like the ambience. No complaints whatsoever.
