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.

We recently had the opportunity to dine at Terrafina at Hester Creek Estate Winery in the beautiful Okanagan Valley. We split a Citrus Beet Salad, followed by the Beef Tenderloin and Lamb Pappardelle along with a bottle of Hester Creek 2011 Block 2 Reserve Merlot. Heaven! We shared a freshly prepared Bread Pudding for dessert - it was worth the wait. All this on the outdoor patio offering expansive views of the glorious Okanagan watching the sun go down. The wait staff was friendly, professional and efficient. Might be a tad pricey to take a young family, but for a special occasion.... it will make an impression!

Some girlfriends and I recently spent a weekend doing some wine touring and overall we had a great experience. We stopped for lunch at the Hester Creek restaurant and the food was fantastic. We were all less impressed with the service, not because our server wasn't nice but because when talking about our experiences so far in the day, and where we were to go next, she advised us against purchasing wine at another particular vineyard. It was an odd comment to make, considering most of staff we had experienced at different vineyards had all great things to say and recommendations of wines to taste at all the different vineyards. The particular vineyard that we were advised not to purchase the wine (basically because she said there is better wine out there to purchase at different places), all of us girls bought wine at because we all liked it the best. Go figure.

We went to Hester Creek Winery for the wine of course, but also because we heard they had some good gluten free options on their menu. It was a lovely warm and sunny day and they gave us a wonderful spot on their outdoor patio. The view of the winery and the valley below and the peaceful setting amongst nature made it the perfect spot to relax and recharge after doing some wine tasting.

The serving staff was very friendly and helpful. They recommended the gluten free pizza and pasta. We started with the beef carpaccio, and it we gobbled it up in seconds it was so tasty! The gluten free pizza was crisp and light. The toppings were delicious and "just greasy enough" to feel like you're having a great pizza experience! I had a pasta dish with clams and prawns, and although I found the portion a bit small, every bite was delicious!!

For dessert, the chocolate and salted caramel panacotta was legendary!! I definitely recommend this restaurant...it's worth the trip!! And in our case, it was worth the trip twice as we went the next day for lunch as well :-)
