“Better than most ski area restaurants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

Sun Peaks is quite isolated from the more populated town of Kamloops, British Columbia, so supplies are a bit restricted. The other restaurants do a reasonable job but with a limited menu spread. This restaurant, however, provides real italian fare with a broad range of dishes. Like many Canadian bars, the drinks are skimpy, but the wine list is good.

“Great food everytime”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

The pizza is delicious, and if you go at peak season make reservations. Excellent service every time, it is our family tradition to eat here on the first night of our vacation each year.

“Ok food nothing special”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

We stayed one night in Sun Peaks on our way to Vancouver and thought Italian sounded nice. Well, very basic italia. At best. I ordered arabiatta pasta and what came out was anything but. Lacked flavor and had absolutely no chili in it. Also came out cold so had to go back and took 5-6 minutes to come back and because been microwaved, now chewy. We should have fgone to the steak house next door. Place was slammed so that May have something to do with the slow service. Don't think they expected the summer crowds that were there.

Dear valued guest,
of course, we never like when guests don't have the dinner experience they expected. I am sorry it happened to you.
I can assure you that our kitchen staff does not use a microwave to 'cook' or 'reheat' any food.
Summer is a bit of a tricky business at Sun Peaks Resort. It can be rather slow on one night and the next night turns out to be really busy, going back to slow the next night. That is one of the reasons why, because you mentioned it, i.e. the Steakhouse at Sun Peaks only operates in the winter month.
I hope, you overall enjoyed your visit to Canada and take a lot of good memories home.
