We stopped for lunch on our way to Whistler. The menu includes several full meals with lots of local veggies! My wife had salad with smoked duck. We had lamb with an excellent variety and quantity of tasty vegetables.

An Excellent morning out. Unfortunately too early for lunch. However the wines certainly made up for the lack of lunch. Im now a club member and drove away with a case of red wine. Reserve. 6 of each reserve wines.

What a lovely spot. We tasted a few wines and bought a case for Christmas. Sadly we were too late for lunch but really look forward to trying it next time as the customers on the patio certainly looked happy!

Nice, clean building, nice views and great wine, what more could one ask for? They do serve food, but we never sampled. Bought 2 bottles to take home. Will stop here again.

Was staying with friends in Lillooet and came here for a lunch and a dinner! It was excellent both times and even though it was very hot, the staff was kind and the patio still pleasant. A must-do in Lillooet!
