We chose to go to the Minstrel for New Year's Eve this year for their great food and music. The band was fun and the dance floor was crowded which is what we all wanted, however, the food was less than par. The lamb meatballs which was one of two appetizers was the best item of my meal. I chose... More

The Minstrel Cafe constantly surprises with the quality of the food and the excellence of the entertainment on offer. The cover charge is always reasonable, and it's a delight to see such A list acts as Maria Muldaur and Duke Robillard in an intimate setting.

The Minstrel Cafe is out of downtown on Lakeshore Road. Popular with locals it seemed. Excellent food, well presented, good variety of choices. Nice atmosphere, often entertainment on weekends. Good wait staff and service. Seafood, meat choices, pasta and some spicier options, enjoyed seafood fettuccine. Appetizers tasty as well. The$5 cover charge on entertainment if staying after 8 pm was... More

Very quick service and happened to come on a night when there was no entertainment surcharge! Really enjoyed the fresh fruit and cheese platter - full of flavour and very good size.

We went to the Minstrel Café in Kelowna, BC on Saturday, October 25th. We wanted to hear the Regals Band. They were very good. We had drinks and dinner. The server was attentive but he did not know the specials. He had them written down on a paper and read them off. He had about 4 or 5 tables. Our... More

The owner of this place is very crooked and apparently has no concept of what reviews are doing to this place. The dining was horrible and the chef made excuses, laughed at us and charged us anyways for food that I wouldn't feed my dog. Beware!! The only place I've ever been where water and a lime or lemon wedge... More

We stopped by before a concert at cedar creek. What a great location. I had the baby back ribs. Yummy. The tree in the patio is enormous and must be hundreds of years old. Worth it to just check out. We were leaving and they had a band setting up for some live music. Too bad we couldn't stay.
