A lovely location, no doubt. Service was very good. Beautiful outdoor patio....the upper patio is especially nice.

I ordered the lamb sausage and my partner ordered a prawn salad. The prawns were ok.....definitely not overcooked. It would have been nice if they had been marinaded. The lamb sausage was very tasty.......but really tiny. Later we had a delicious cheese plate (we were still hungry)......$22 for such a small amount of cheese.

Might go back for 'special occasions', but it's not my thing for a regular dining experience.

Went here with a group of friends. We had the cheese plate appetizer and brioche to start. I had a lamb sausage and falafel which was very tasty. Dessert was divine- a chocolate mousse and a lemon tart with basil sauce. Would get top marks but when we called in the afternoon for a reservation they told us they could only fit us in at 8pm if it wasn't raining because then we could go on the patio. We called at 7 and they said they had room for us at 8. When we arrived at 8 there was one rowdy group of about 10 outside and then about 2 tables with people inside... clearly they had lots of room for us.

We go here every year when we do our annual wine tour through Naramata. They have a couple of my favorite white wines here, and a great little quiet restaurant in the back. Always great service and excellent food, and always paired with their wines. We love this place!

Beautiful setting and excellent food. My husband and I shared two appetizers (seared tuna and elk charcuterie), each had a meal (lamb sausage and prime rib) and a couple of desserts (cheesecake) and all of it was excellent. Some other people at our table ordered pasta and did not love it, but we loved it and would definitely go back when we're in the area again.

I attended a wedding reception at the Winery.

The salad was very refreshing. The steak was also very tasty. Considering the kitchen had to cook for eighty people, the chef has done a wonderful job.
