Kelowna Eats

  • Bouchons Bistro
    A cozy and casual French Bistro in downtown Kelowna. Thoughtful wine list and frites to die for.
  • Fresco
    Always my first recommendation to friends and out of town guests. Fresco is a world class restaurant in the heart of the Okanagan. Chef Rod Butters creates seasonally inspired menus & relies heavily on our local produce. Audrey Surrao masters the wine list & insures service so every experience a wonderful one.
  • La Boulangerie
    A little slice of France in the Lower Mission. We LOVE this place. Authentic baguettes, great sandwiches, dreamy quiche, mille feuille, croissants, chocolate brioche.... MMmmm!
  • Laughing Moon Gallery & Restaurant
    One of our neighborhood haunts. The menu is eclectic, the decor is funky & we know what to expect.
  • Le Triskell Creperie
    Light buckwheat crepes filled with everything from brie, roasted red peppers, and seafood to chocolate. A real treat & a very good deal.
  • Mahdinas
  • More to Come...
  • Ozeki
    Our pick for the best sushi in Kelowna.
  • Ricardo's Mediterranean Restaurant
    Eating at Ricardo's is like eating at a good friend's home. A good friend who can cook! Tucked away in Lake Country (turn at the big boat off of 97) Sue and Ricardo serve up some of the best Italian comfort food I've enjoyed. A table with the oversized and cushy chairs is a must.
  • Siam Orchid
    Simply the best Thai food in Kelowna. The chef and co-owner is from Thailand & knows her way around the kitchen. Lucky for us.
  • Spoonstruck
    Zu & Angela serve up some tasty curries & delish desserts in this urban little cafe on Kelowna's quiet Tutt Street
  • The Grateful Fed
    We love this funky deli/cafe and owner Kamel who serves up the best smoked meat outside of Montreal. His Turkey Club is simply the best in town and even if you're new to the Fed, you'll feel welcome in no time.
  • The Ridge Restaurant ~ KLO
  • Waterfront Wines
    An urban wine bar that makes us locals feel like we're in the big city again! Fun food, great wines & cocktails, funky decor & very good service. It's fast becoming a favourite hangout of ours.

South Okanagan & Naramata Eats

  • Vanilla Pod
    Inventive & delicious food & an urban chic setting in the heart of Summerland
  • Theo's Restaurant
    I wish Penticton was closer! I've only been to Theo's when it's packed. But I hear a full house is the norm. Theo's is lively, fresh & savoury -- just about everything a good Greek restaurant should be.
  • Salty's Beach House
    I haven't been to this Penticton favourite yet but I hear good things...
  • Naramata Heritage Inn
