Love this restaurant! Fabulous menu, food & staff. Their daily Happy Hour Special can't be beat. Wonderful atmosphere & decor!

Had not been here for a few months, but glad we gave it another chance. I had the Strawberry Fields salad with chicken and it was very good!! Happy to see all the local Okanagan wines on the list as well.

We live close to this Resturant and try to go with neighbors bi-monthly. We always enjoy the food here and like to sit in the dining room since it is quieter and less distracting. The service has been consistently good. Very grateful to have Sammy...More
