“pretty good beach restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Had a nice family meal on the patio, beautiful location and good food for a reasonable price. Appreciated the very warm friendly service by one of the wait staff (one of the family members?). Her warmth and good manners were in stark contrast to our first encounter with another waitress who tried to seat us indoors at the worst table in the house (even though there was lots of room on the patio).

“Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

My husband and I went here for a late dinner. We shared the appetizer platter. It was very good, a great combination of hot and cold items. One of the items was their salad wraps, very tasty with the peanut sauce. We saw the other menu items on other tables and they certainly don't short change you in the portion department! It all looked very tasty. We would definitely return to this restaurant.

“Skip It”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

We were there for dinner on our last night of holidays. We were literally the ONLY two people in the restaurant. My husband's dish was wrong three times over. Asked for noodles, got rice. Asked for red curry, got green. Asked for prawns, got chicken. Then they offer a 10% reduction on his meal? Are you kidding? Very poor customer service. We ended up not being charged for his meal after we complained. I have no clue how you can mess up an order so badly when you only have two customers. Probably very hit and miss here. Never again.

“Favourite Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013 via mobile

Live in Penticton and eat often at Cambo. My wife loves the Butter Chicken and I love the Sesame Chicken and Spring Rolls. Every time we eat here we so enjoy the freshness of the food, the atmosphere and the amazing view looking up the valley. Great restaurant!

“Bland food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

Found the food to be very bland and unoriginal. Seemed to be almost "out of a box" type of food. Our server was unfriendly as well. Not a good experience. Will not return. Go 100 meters down the road to Saltys beach house.
