“Best meal of the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

This was an excellent place to have lunch. Contrary to some other vineyards we ate at (hgmmmm... Quails Gate....) this place gave perfect sized portions, superb quality food, and great bang for your buck. Would not hesitate to eat there again and highly recommend it even if you're not a wine drinker. Definitely worth the scenic 10 minute drive from town.

“Great Lunch Fabulous Wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

We were on a wine tour of the Naramata Bench and we had been to 5 wineries before we stopped at Hillside Estate Bistro for lunch with our tour guide. It was not too busy, as it was the Wednesday( Oct 2 213) just a couple of days before the Wine Festival started.
The three of us all started with their Spiced Carrot & Local Apple Soup, OMG, the best soup I have ever tasted!!! I had the Roasted Chicken & Fontina Paninihe, which was great but their soup and their Gamay Noir Wine was excellent. Our sever was very attentive, liked the layout of the bistro and the atmosphere was wonderful. When I travel that way again would definitely plan on having lunch or dinner their.

“Great food and great wine.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Didn't think of dinner until late. Glad to see that they were still open. Headed to dinner after a quick visit to the tasting room. Dinner was pleasantly surprising. Very glad we (reluctantly) had dessert. It was terrific. We enjoyed ourselves very much.

Two of us went for a simple, light dinner on a Sunday evening and we had a very good dinner, with excellent service and very good food.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

This wine festival event at the winery/bistro was a four course meal preceded by canapés. The Rose wine was a surprise to someone who rarely lies this type - it was so good that we purchased a couple of bottles. The canapés were delicious and well presented. The four mains were equally well prepared and very tasty. They were well paired with wines from the winery. The wine maker and one of the owners introduced each session with information and humour. I'll certainly be back next year as this is not an event to be missed.
