Overlooking rows of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, our outdoor Terrace Restaurant offers stylish, seasonal wine country fare to complement our wines. This spectacular culinary destination was recently recognized by Travel + Leisure magazine as "one of the top five winery restaurants in the world…the centerpiece of the Canadian wine tourism industry…one of the most glorious dining experiences around." We are very fortunate to have an accomplished and celebrated culinary team, led by Executive Winery Chef Matthew Batey, CCC (Certified Chef de Cuisine). Since arriving in the Okanagan following a distinguished restaurant cooking career, Matthew has co-authored the concept of "Cuisine du Terroir": wine country cooking with the freshest, locally grown, in-season ingredients.

Great food served and fantastic service. Wait staff will describe every dish they serve you, specify main ingredients. Wine pairing is of course excellent and a fantastic view of Lake Okanagan. Unfortunately the Terrace Restaurant is only open in summer as it is strictly a patio restaurant. A little pricey but well worth the experience.

The position is stunning with amazing views down to the lake. The staff were all very profesdional and friendly. The food was stunning and tasted amazingly fresh. The wine was also gorgeous - especially loved the Chardonnay tasting set of 3. This is a very popular place (and I can see why), so you should definitely make a reservation in... More

We have eaten here two times, about one year apart. On both occasions the service was excellent, the view stunning, and the food was wonderful. We tried a relatively new Viognier wine from the Oliver-Osoyoos area and it was fantastic. Go there- you won't be disappointed

Service was very attentive at the beginning of the dinner, but there were delays in service during later courses. The food was delicious, very interesting and inventive. The location and view were excellent. The outdoor restaurant has heaters and wind screens to keep clients comfortable if the weather changes during dinner.

We have visited the winery on several ocassions but this was our first time for dinner. We expected it to be excellent and we were not disappointed. The Reisling Reserve was excellent and we later picked up a bottle for our "cellar". There was an "amuse bouche" of melon soup served first. Light and refreshing. We started with the Haida... More

After hearing great reviews about The Terrace restaurant at Mission Hill, we were very excited to try it out. We made reservations (needed) and arrived on time. If first impressions should tell you anything, we should have listened and walked away right then and there. We waited 5-10 minutes before a hostess even showed up at the front desk. Multiple...

Restaurant was noisy - we had to change tables. Both my wife and I had rib eye steak, which was served in a stack of three steaks. In both cases, the top steak was excellent, the bottom one was full of fat but tasty, and the middle steak was tough, chewy and tasteless. Service was good.
