Best food in the Okanagan

Have been here several times and never disappointed. Menu is top drawer as is the service and the food itself. Prices are more than reasonable and when entertainment is highlighted it too is second to none. Can't go wrong at this establishment

We made a special trip to for lunch only as we heard about the new chef. French twist is an amazing cup of soup and nice sandwich that has so many incredible... More

We had been referred..a 'great foodie place'..an perhaps, on some days. On our visit, it was good, 2 out of 3. Good..but not OMG this is so great. Salad wraps were really yummy and with two dipping sauces, good choice. Next was the brushetta and it too was yummy., just watch out for the un-pitted olives. That is just a... More

My husband and I stumbled across this cosy place on a very quiet Saturday evening. We really enjoyed the food, especially the puddings. As it was a very quiet end of season evening, we had quite a chat with the owner and she recommended the route to take for the next leg of our trip, which resulted in a fantastic... More

To be fair, the night we visited the Dream Cafe there was no music. The decor was eclectic, "boho" and had an intimate feel. The cafe is set-up around the stage to offer an intimate setting to hear live music. The food was just average, however. Our appetizer (a selection of three dips) was served in plastic cups (disappointing). Both... More

We attended a concert featuring Robert Michaels. The venue is intimate, with great seating for patrons. The sound was great, not deafening, but certainly filling the space. The dinner beforehand was very good. The service was outstanding. Robert Michaels was tremendously entertaining. We will definitely plan to return.
