Ate in this restaurant and enjoyed our meal. The service was great, the menu offered a variety of options - we all found something to eat which can be a challenge at times. Had drinks from the bar - a bit disappointed as I found my drink had a strong alcohol taste. Typically when I have had frozen Margaritas in... More

Dinner with reservation on a Sunday evening. Patio seating busy, inside seating not. Chose inside, as the outside seating chairs looked less comfortable for table dining. Decent view of the lake front in or out. Good service, nice atmosphere. Spinach and tomato salads were ample size, nicely presented and tasty. Chose the Chicken and the Eggplant parmesan mains. Both were... More

Our waitress was lovely and the food was delicious and very affordable! The view is right over lake okanagan and is gorgeous. Definitely a hidden gem!

Great locataion, great patio family friendly for those of us with little ones who aren't allowed to eat at the Parrot! Great wine list (Burrowing Owl Chardonnay!), fresh salads, excellent pasta, lakeview. No cons that I can speak of - one order of pasta will suffice for two people.

As the night started out the service was very good. The appetizers came out and everyone seemed to enjoy them. Then a very long wait for the entrees started. About 40 minutes later our supper arrived. I got the fettuccine Alfredo and it was very bland. For being a pasta resturant, we were all very disappointed with our pasta dishes.... More

You go there because it's pretty and makes you feel glamour. Their decor is fancy and I love the ceiling. The patio is comfortable, the lower part for eating. the big chairs and the lower table make it difficult to manage to eat and wear a skirt. Their patio don't get much sun. The staff is nice and efficient. But... More

I ordered the only vegetarian pasta dish: Spaghetti & roasted vegetables in pesto sauce. Pasta sat in warming water too long, the entire dish was waterlogged, thus pesto very anemic, tasted more like a few basil sprinkles, and it was not piping hot, which did nothing to enhance its appeal. Other pasta dish was good though, so could have been... More

This was a very nice place to eat and the prices are very reasonable. I had a pasta dish with prawns, it was delicious and you get lots to eat. For dessert I had creme brule and it was so good. The service is very good and friendly. You can eat inside or outside (weather permitting). You can get an... More

We visit Penticton a lot and don't want to eat in over-priced restaurants all the time. This time around, we had dinner at the Bufflehead which is inside the Casino. It was perfectly delicious, a great menu to select from, and the prices were extremely amazing, as was the view. My only complaint - and this has nothing to do... More
