This is a great special occasion restaurant. The service is incredible, old style attentive servers who never let a water glass sit empty or a dirty dish to linger on the table. The atmosphere is wonderful, low lighting, soft music, and a fantastic view of the lake. The only thing distracting us from a truly special experience was a couple... More

We came here for their famous Sunday Brunch. We pre-booked reservations for 10:30am as we heard it is pretty popular. The hotel parking was all full when we arrived so we parked across the street in the paid lot. The buffet was $35/person. It is definitely on the high end but is worth it for a special occasion. The variety... More

We had company in town for a family celebration, and they wanted to take us somewhere nice. There is a lot of paces to go in Kelowna, making it hard to decide... SO we decided to go somewhere that we had heard was good, and that we had not gone to before. Decided on the Eldorado patio! Good choice! Food... More

Stopped in Wednesday morning and ordered eggs florentine and eggs benny. Server was attentive but the food had a 20 minute ticket time and came out luke warm and poached soft instead of medium. Not a huge error, but the entire plate was a bit subpar in comparison to other scratch made breakfasts in Kelowna. Oak and cru, Gulfstream, l'oven,... More

Excellent décor in a long narrow room along the water that provides intimacy and a great view. Hit and miss food. The misses were dishes recommended by the overly friendly waiter. Mushroom appetizer was too salty to eat. The crab cake was nothing special. The artic char main dishes were excellent.

This was our second time at the Eldorado for dinner and they consistently deliver. Food was tasty with many local and sustainable choices. Excellent Okanagan wine list paired with professional wait staff. We sat on the enclosed veranda seating, which extends the length of the restaurant facing the docks and lake. It is not that wide, so they have 2... More

We were here for a celebratory dinner with our real estate agent. The service was very good-as it always is-but the food wasn't up to the usual standards. My farm to table tower was ok-not great-and my husbands steak was over cooked, not the medium rare he had requested. Our realtor enjoyed the tuna. As always the desserts were beautifully... More

We've been going here for many years. The El is a a boutique hotel, dripping in nostalgia and glamour of a old day yacht resort. Sadly, lately it ends there.

Great place for breakfast. Fabulous service. The best hollandaise sauce I've ever had anywhere in the world. It was amazing! Spectacular lakeside views. Enjoy a aftermeal stroll along the pier and waterfront.
