“$100 for not much”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Food was average and overpriced. My daughter wouldn't eat the macaroni and cheese from the kids menu and when I sampled it, I couldn't blame her. Overcooked noodles and bland suace. My husband had a salad with too much oil and the rapsberry vinagrette dressing had way to many seeds. The soupd was good, but at the end of the night it wasn't worth the bill.

“over rated”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

we are new to west kelowna. we were looking for good spots for dinner and drinks. The atmosphere in the restaurant is cold and resembles typical hotel breakfast surroundings. No music,impersonal lighting, about as romantic as going to the White Spot. The service was abismal, not blaming the staff, as they were clearly overwhelmed. No management in sight, until a half hour later came out front, took a look around and disappeared. The menu looks impressive, in concept, with tapas, cheeses etc. We ordered an array of cheeses, hot and cold tapas and bread. the cocktails took 25 minutes, 2 martinis, the food after ordering when got the drinks took a half hour, for tapas! We kept the menus, to consider our dinner selections, ordered wine and began on the starters. Without getting into everything, the oysters were good and fresh, the bread was amazing, but everything else was awful. The cheeses were even served with disdain and had the consticeny of coming out of a freezer. Needless to say, we corked our wine, expressed our dismay to our server, and promptly left. At no time was a manager or supervisor brought into the fray as clearly they don't care. I imagine this is one of many inadequate eateries that rest their laurels on being lake side. Whatever the case, no thanks to coming back.

“Fully recovered”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

It has been a year since we last went for Sunday brunch at the Bonfire.
That experience was disappointing and we did not go back until very recently.
The kitchen management has changed and we were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the Sunday brunch.
We can recommend it and will return soon.
Excellent selection, fairly reasonable priced.
Good atmosphere and service.

“Amazing food, service and view!”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Best restaurant in Kelowna!
Food - delicious. We ordered pizzas as starters - so fresh, different ingredients to your standard & great thin crust bases. Mains were great too, though some of us couldn't finish it because it was so filling!
Service - great. Couldn't be more helpful. The manager, assistant manager and servers looked after us so well & moved us inside with no fuss when it got cooler outside.
Ambience - lovely. So relaxing. Felt like a restaurant in Australia, not the Canadian standard. Beautiful mood lighting, comfortable seating and spacious interior + gorgeous patio overlooking the pools and lake. Heaters outside for the winter time.
Would definitely go here again next time we're in the country!
