Great view, great place, the restaurant and the winery, great food, great service, what else does one need?

I've mentioned in a previous review of the Tiki Shores motel a bit about a number of restaurants based at wineries, and Hillside is one of them. There is a certain charm about this place, apart from everything else, which I'll get to in a minute. It's not pretentious, unlike Mission Hill, or... read more

This vineyard, winery and bistro is one of the oldest in the south Okanagon wine region. The location on the benches of Maramata on the east side of the lake just outside of Penticton makes it very accessible. The service is impeccable and the wines are amazing - bought an entire case during our last visit - a mix of... More

If you want to treat your very best friends with a great outdoor lunch or patio experience, you won't be disappointed with HEW. Come during the early summer or after rush season for a patio lunch and taste some of the best wines in the valley in their tasting room.

We came here as part of a winery tour. There's wine tasting. There is a good collection and several medal winning wines. The rosé is much better and has a more complex flavor than that from Township 7 (though they have a good chardonnay and 7 blanc). You can do a self tour of the winery (just around the bistro...

The attendant in the tasting room was very nice. On her recommendation we ate lunch at the bistro and we were not disappointed. The food at the bistro was awesome. Best grilled cheese ever!

We accepted the advice of a friend - cancelled reservations at another well-known bistro and went out for the season opening at Hillside. The meal was simply perfect. Apparently we were treated to a new menu and we savoured the experience. Be prepared to experience something unique and bold. The creative presentations, the flavours of the meal and the perfect...

I have been to this winery before with a group of women on a golf/wine tour that I was escorting many years ago. It is lovely with a wonderful bistro. Unfortunately we were there in early season (March 22) so they did not have the bistro open. The wine tasting was very good and they waived the fee since it... More

I have been for lunch several times and dinner once, all have had a good meal. Although you can find a burger on the menu for the majority it is not your normal type of lunch fair and go with an open mind to experience something different . A culinary experience. its a little pricey but what wineries aren't. They... More

In the winter you need to rely on the fresh food choices rather than the breathtaking view of the summer. We have eaten at Hillside many times and the quality is always very good. Wine prices are reasonable and it's a chance to do wine tasting before you even sit down for dinner. Lunch is also good with a variety... More
