My husband and I enjoyed a lovely meal at the Hillside Bistro. Although the setting overlooking the Okanagan Lake is beautiful at any time, I would recommend the ambiance of the evening hours as the sun is setting over the lake. The bistro faces westward, thus taking full advantage of the evening light and colors. Ask for a table on... More

This restaurant worth a visit for several reasons: the views from the patio are great, the wine selection is excellent and the food we is of excellent quality (the meat I asked was excellent). The restaurant is situated inside the cellar of Hillside so you have a great selection of the wines produced by they. I would recommend you to... More

We chose the BIstro for my wife's birthday dinner in July 2014. Unfortunately it was a little too cool to sit outside but the food and service more then made up for that. I had my heart set on the gourmet Burger but was diverted to the Butcher Block as it sounded fantastic. And it was! Have to say that... More

For the past five years we have stopped at Hillside for lunch and a tasting during our time in the Okanagan. This summer as in the past, I had booked reservations for a later lunch. Despite our large numbers this year of 14 - we were still able to enjoy the upper patio with its wonderful view. The service was... More

We had our lunch at the vineyards restaurant and the mussels were delicious with their wine pairing suggestion. The only thing I would complain about this place was the flies that came to dine with us. There were a couple of them and it did interfere with our experience at the restaurant. We went to the wine shop for wine... More

I randomly found Hillside Bistro online and took a chance making a dinner reservation - I'm so glad I did! The food was excellent and the wine was absolutely beautiful. While the Bistro has an amazing view of the lake, the patio can get extremely hot in the summer. When booking a reservation, you may wish to request a seat... More

The tomato soup was good. The thick burgers were 'dripping-down-the-chin' great. The fettucine with lamb and tomatoes was lukewarm and had almost no flavour. The mussels were OK. They serve no cappuccino. The price was right ($100) for four without wine including one dessert and coffee after. Service was excellent. The location is wonderful, on a hill in an old-looking...

In a winery tour with a friend this was the last winery: nice wines, even if not all of them, but the guy who served us was tired, or annoyed, or bored...don't know which one...and he totally ruined the experience. The other lady behind the bar was way way better...but they have a gorgeus view on the lake! Anyway...something that... More
