Description: Still blushing from all its accolades in receiving the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2016, Terrafina Restaurant at Hester Creek Estate remains the top-rated restaurant for the Oliver area on TripAdvisor and has been awarded Okanagan Life's Reader's Choice Best Restaurants for 2016. Terrafina welcomes you in its nice and intimate patio or, if you wish indoor where the old brick and stone walls reveal the ancient origins of the building that hosts the main restaurant. Terrafina's team is happy and doing an amazing job in working together to present a first-rate dining experience. As the leaves change colour, you'll find lots of exciting events this fall. . Stay tuned, too, as the temperatures cool for heartier Italian specials such as Cheese Fondue, perhaps Raclettes, and game (venison) season. Until October 31, Terrafina remains open daily, 11:30 am to 9 pm. To preview the Tuscan and European influenced menus, make reservations or learn about hosting intimate private functions, visit our website or call us. Enhance your group events and corporate occasions such as customer appreciation and/or Christmas parties by planning now to host them in our beautiful restaurant.

Was apart of a rehearsal dinner with around 20 - 30 people. Friendly staff, great family style dinner. Beautiful property and scenery. Would recommend this in a heart beat.

“Awesome weekend”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

We were 6 couples who stayed in each of the 6 villas so we had the area to ourselves. It was great. Beautiful accommodation and gorgeous views. We had our own private area for breakfast which were excellent. The first night we had a cooking demonstration in the demonstration kitchen which was really great. The following day we had a winery tour along with a tasting of the various wines. The wines are all very good and very affordable. The staff were friendly and so very helpful. I would not hesitate to go back or recommend this winery.

“Delicious and With Great Service”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Good variety of food including thin crust Neopolitan style pizza although you would never see duck confit with bleu cheese in Italy. Server and hostess were attentive and friendly.

“Great wine.”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Loved the wine here, though we were not nearly as impressed with the restaurant. I would suggest visiting for the wine and skipping the restaurant.

“Disappointing and Overpriced.”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Ate here based on the great reviews on tripadvisor, etc. Was very disappointed. The menu seems rather unimaginative. The food is considerably overpriced given the quality. We started with the salad, that was priced at $14.75. Given the price I'd have expected the salad to be something more than simply a bed of lettuce with a bit of cheese and dressing, but alas, it was not. Possibly the most I have ever paid for a basic salad. On to the entrees. I ordered the duck & bleu cheese pizza. It was average, but again not worth the price tag. My wife ordered the chicken (priced at $28.75), which she enjoyed, but again, I can't remember ever paying that much for a chicken dish.

Don't get me wrong, I regularly pay $30 for an entree without hesitation. However, when I do so, I expect top quality in return. It was not delivered here. 4-5 star prices for in what my opinion was about 3 star food.

We left full but unsatisfied, which is not a good feeling to have after paying just over $100. The wine and the service were good, that was about it.
