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.

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

We were on a tour of the wineries in the Oliver area and came accross Hester Creek Estate Wines. It was lunch time so we thought we would stop for a bite to eat. Terrafina is a separate building from the winery. It is an elegant Italian Bistro with a wonderful view of the area. They have a lovely outdoor patio for those warmer days. We had two dishes from the appetizers menu and there was lots of food and it tasted so wonderful. We enjoyed the ambience here and have spoken highly of the restaurant since coming home

“Great location”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Terrafina and Hester Creek Estate. There is only one restaurant on the Hester Creek Estate notwithstanding Tripadvisor showing two entries. It's a stylish dining room with a delightful setting overlooking the vineyards of the Okanagan valley.

It's a well run restaurant with a short menu of predictable favourites. Cooking is generally competent though perhaps would benefit from some simplification on the "less is more" principle. An over salted dish was quickly replaced.

The wine list has a meaningful contribution from local rivals. The Hester Creek contribution includes their current shop offering but virtually nothing from their older vintages which we found slightly disappointing as our wallets were out for a bit of celebration.

“GREAT ITALIAN WARM & FRIENDLY SERVICE”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

My wife and I visit this lovely bistro attached to Hester Creek winery, every couple of months and have NEVER been disappointed. Split one of the Pizza's and then take a lighter lunch. Good wine selection and excellent dinner from a limited but Great menu.

“First class winery!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

This was one of the last wineries that we visited and I must say, the most beautiful, best service, best amenities. We were travelling with our three children and when we walked into the tasting room the kids were served first! The room is beautiful, the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable and they offered amazing food and wine pairing classes. The wine is good too!
