Really enjoyed our lunch here- simple but stylish food, without being too pretentious and overlooking a lovely view. I suspect the service might be a little patchy, our server was great but front of house seemed a little stressed/overwhelmed, despite it being far from full......More

We came for lunch on a warm May afternoon. The terrace was cool and the views of the hills and vineyards were picturesque and soothing. We ate and drank well. I had spaghetti alle vongole, with Manila clams and house-made pasta accented by an arugula...More

Don't go here if you are looking for a cheap meal. The menu only has a small selection but all very special. We had one of the library wines with our meal rather than the recommended pairings, it was still delicious. The lavender ice cream...More

The South Okanagan has gained a well deserved reputation as a desirable destination for tourists seeking an agricultural and culinary experience. The Sonora Room at Burrowing Owl Estate Winery features prominently in this regard with its epicurean excellence, superb service, relaxed style and scenic splendour. The restaurant overlooks 146 acres of picturesque vineyard from the patio or inside the warm and inviting dining room. The philosophy of the talented culinary team is to embrace the opportunity to showcase many of the South Okanagan’s local producers. Dishes are created that utilize an array of local organic produce, seasonal fruits and artisan cheeses, and pair perfectly with Burrowing Owl's award winning wines. The exclusive wine list includes a selection of Burrowing Owl's current vintages, and library wines that are no longer publicly available for sale. Creative cuisine, impeccable service and a beautiful venue highlight the great agricultural diversity of the region.
