Description: Overlooking rows of Pinot Noir & Chardonnay set against the Okanagan Lake, our outdoor Terrace Restaurant complements our wine's natural affinities with cuisine that is locally, sustainably, and seasonally sourced. By growing much of our own produce in the estate Varietal Garden and working hand-in-hand with local farmers, we are able to provide a spectacular culinary experience highlighting the bountiful ingredients & world-class wines that characterize this region. By partnering with local farmers, our menu continuously evolves to incorporate the freshest ingredients. Similar to our philosophy in the vineyards, we have a firm belief in sustainable and bio-dynamic agricultural practices, including local foraging, organic farming, and the Vancouver Aquarium's OceanWise program. Even our own honeybees help sustain the estate gardens while providing wildflower honey to be used by our culinary team.

“Incredible dining experience at a beautiful winery!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

The Mission Hill Estate Winery in West Kelowna has to be one of the most stunning wineries in all of BC. The owners have done an amazing job creating a place that you will always remember, and this includes the dining experience at The Terrace, an al fresco restaurant that is part of this incredible winery. We dined at The Terrace on our last evening in Kelowna at the end of a four day trip to the Okanagan to tour wineries and it was a wonderful way to top off our visit. It was a calm and warm September evening just right for dining outside.

Our server was friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the menu and the Mission Hill wines. After an amuse bouche I had the torchon of foie gras and my wife the striped shrimp appetizer, both were beautifully presented and excellent. Main courses were Okanagan duck breast for my wife and a Halibut and shrimp special for me - both terrific. Dessert was the Martin’s Lane Pear & Ivoire parfait for my wife that was just a bit too frozen and I enjoyed the lemon tart.

The incredible winery setting, the beautiful view of Lake Okanagan, the amazing food and service, and of course the great company made it an evening we won't forget anytime soon.

“What an Experience”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

From the moment you arrive you are in for a treat. Great atmosphere with the bell tower ringing out and a view to die for from the restaurant. Meal excellent and a waiter who really understood and explained the menu. Spend the afternoon and enjoy.

“Should have been wonderful, but.....”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

A group of 4 of us went to Mission Hill on Wednesday 19th September. We enjoyed the winery and the great gift shop, and the views on a sunny day were spectacular. So, we decided to stay for lunch.... and first impressions count, right? The female Maitre'd must have thought she was emulating snooty European role models, because her haughty expressionless face did not move a muscle the entire time we were there. A cold impersonal 'greeting' was followed by a robotic showing to our table and introduction to our sweet waitress Justine. (Justine saved the day from being ruined by Miss Haughty). As we live in Europe, I can assure her that her ice maiden conduct would never be considered acceptable. If it wasnt so rude, it would have been comical.

Anyway, we ordered and the food came. The herb risotto was overwhelmingly flavoured with cumin whch was not mentioned at all on the menu, and our friend could not eat it. So she and I swapped meals. The waitress was aware of this and told Miss Haughty, who looked over towards us but never came over to ask if everything was ok or to see if she could resolve our issue with the food. Poor, poor, poor.

And yes, we did eat the food, but I would have expected that the risotto was removed from the bill as two of us ate meals we had not ordered. But for her not to even bother to address us over a clear problem with the food was appalling service. Talk about treating your customers with contempt - she had that down to a fine art..... shame her service standards didnt match up to her elevated sense of importance. I wouldnt go back for fear that this is the norm for this restaurant.... frankly, views alone do not balance out that behaviour. And as it is very expensive, you should expect to be treated very well. I was not impressed.
