We went out for the Dine-Around and were extremely happy with the meal choices. Two of us had the short ribs, another the duck and I had the awesome seafood risotto. The risotto had lots of shrimp & scallops, cooked to perfection in my opinion....I had the Caesar salad that had the most flavorful Fraser Valley smoked bacon on it. The others had Potato Bacon soup which my husband says was amazing. If you like chocolate, make sure you have the Chocolate Pate or of course Basil & Mint's famous all homemade Tiramisu. Service was spot on and one thing about this restaurant it is not loud, background music at a very nice low level so we could have a great conversation.More

Came here on recommendation from our B & B host. Good to get the three-course set menu and food generally good but restaurant quiet so lacked atmosphere! Good value and worth a visit.

Saturday night. Booking seemed to go awry despite us have a mailed confirmation. However the manager was happy to confirm a table for us - it didn't seem overly busy in the front area but a couple behind without a reservation was turned away. Whatever....The service was friendly and prompt, drinks mis-messaged somewhere but easily sorted. The food (3 risotti and a pizza with side salads ) was good, well-presented and plentiful; pizza could have been more blistered ( I didn't get that either ); but altogether it was a very enjoyable meal for our last dinner in Kelowna before heading out the next day. Location is in Mission Creek out of Kelowna Central, which we would not have known about with internet search. There may be enough life nearby but it seemed a standalone spot.More
