We were between lunch and supper - stopped at Hillside. There was very little to chose at this time of day.

As with many restaurants, we do finalize our luncheon and then have a short hiatus til we open for supper. this helps the Chefs get ready for a busy evening. However, we do offer our appetizer menu for people arriving mid to late afternoon who'd like a perfectly paired nibble with an incredible glass of wine. I hope you were... More

Hi Bronwyn: what a lovely review. Thank you. There is a sign on the KVR that says, "Come on down" - we are a perfect place to rack your bike, take a load off, and have a glass of wine in a beautiful garden with a view of Okanagan Lake and the mountains that is just spectacular. Do come again,... More

We've visited Hillside twice this year for dinner, Both times have been excellent. Outstanding steak and duck... Outstanding kale salad. We've been to them all and Hillside is the best on the Bench for food..

Hi OKFunseekers! So happy you came and joined us for a great Thanksgiving. Chef Rob mentioned the Bistro roasted six turkeys every day for three days; it was a great event, hugely popular and well-received. Come again next year! - Mark More

Didn't get the chance to try the bistro. Don't miss (can't miss, it has a tower) this winery on your way up the bench. The tasting room staff were professional and friendly. Very reasonably priced wine club. Some nice things to pick up in the gift shop as well.

After a busy day of mountain biking followed by several wine tastings, we received a very warm welcome at the Hillside Bistro. The service and food were excellent.
