Description: Head Chef Brent Pillion and his team at The Bistro serve exceptional, contemporary wine country cuisine complemented by breathtaking views of vineyard and Lake Okanagan. Located in the heart of Naramata Bench wine region, Hillside prides itself in proving its customers with the “Ultimate Naramata Experience”. Hillside’s well-equipped cellar, under the direction Winemaker Kathy Malone, produces top quality Okanagan Valley wines destined for many markets. Unique, small-lot, and terroir-driven are terms best used to describe our wines. Our focus is showcasing hand-crafted wine made exclusively from our estate vineyards and other Naramata grape growers.

We were visting our married son in B.C. and were eager to be shown around the Okanagan area, where they were staying for the summer. The day after we arrived we went on a few wine tours and we made dinner reservations at the Hillside Estate Winery on my son's recommendation. Our meals were excellently paired with the Estate wines. We each thoroughly enjoyed our meals, which were prepared with unique ingredients and cooked to perfection. Our server was very professional and the tables overlooked the vineyard and had fantastic views of Okanagan Lake, too. The array of desserts appealed to all of us - there was such variety. Cheese cakes, fruits, chocolate, each of us was pleased with his or her selection. We bought some wines to bring home with us, too. Our meals were so good that we plan on driving the six hours for another weekend excursion just to come to this bistro. Call first as I don't think the bistro is open during the entire winter.

The wines are great but we decided to have dinner in the Bistro and were given a second floor table with a beautiful view. Excellent service and food! One of the first wineries on the Bench and definitely worth a visit for a tasting, lunch or dinner!

Great menu and nice outdoor patio. The wines are first rank also. My experience here in September vaulted this into one of my top choices for dinner on the Naramata Bench.

My friend and I visited Hillside Estate Bistro for lunch on a trip to the Okanagan to visit wineries. The Bistro was recommended for lunch, so we made our way from Osoyoos to Penticton for a bite. We weren't disappointed in the food at least. I wasn't very impressed with the Pinot Gris or Merlot that we had, but the food was excellent. I had an apple and carrot soup which was so tasty, followed by one of the most delicious caesar salads that I have had (heirloom tomatoes, kale, great flavours). When in Penticton, or at least the neighbourhood, make sure to stop by and have a meal at the Hillside Bistro.

This was a superb choice for a light lunch...except the portions were huge. The daily soup special was excellent, but followed by the chicken sandwich made it a large meal. The environment was relaxed and there was no wait for a table. It was a nice relaxing spot to enjoy our wine and lunch. One day we will return to try the dinner menu.
