    Amazing views of surrounding mountains plus amazing food. Enjoyed every bit of the meal and dessert. Good wine pairings as well. I am not normally a foodie-type and just stumbled upon this place, but was totally impressed but the hill-top fine dining experience.

    I have been to Mirador before but this year's visit was the best yet. I had the olive oil poached sockeye salmon – olive caviar, sweet pea tortellini, mushroom brodo, chanterelle mushrooms; this was one of the most exquisite dishes I have eaten and that says a lot since I live on the BC coast and salmon is served everywhere here. The mushroom brodo was so tasty, the salmon was perfectly cooked and the sweet pea tortellini were minty and wonderful. The wine at Tinhorn Creek makes every dish better. I can't wait for my next trip to BC's wine country!

  • Second Visit

    Dined on 9/6/2014
    This was our second visit. Unlike our first visit this night was busy because of a Colin James concert on the property. Both times we ate here, the food was good, the service was lacking. Service isn't bad it's just not as polished as expected with this quality of restaurant. Upon arriving, we approached the host desk, the gentleman we think is the manager, showed almost no interest in our being there, barely acknowledging us before asking a hostess to seat us. We were seated at a great patio table, gorgeous views. The service from that point was disjoint. 1 example, ordered white wine to start, when it was empty, no one asked if we wanted more. Half way done main course and no wine on the table.

    Miradoro makes for an excellent stop on a wine touring day. Beautiful views off of the patio and attentive servers. I always seem to gravitate towards the grilled cheese and have not been disappointed yet. My hubby is kind enough to give me tastes of other menu items - all good so far!

    This was out first visit to Oliver, BC. Miradoro was recommended by a friend for our anniversary dinner. Our meals did not disappoint. Delicious to the last bite, and reasonable pricing (we had the Wild Boar Bacon Carbonara and the Sloping Hill Pork Belly followed by the Chocolate Bundino). The views were spectacular, and the wine was paired beautifully with our meals. We will be back every time we are in the south Okanagan.

    Despite the fact this was one of the few nights it rained in the Okanagan the whole time we were there on vacation, we still managed to have an amazing dinner on the patio at Miradoro with majestic views of the mountains and wineries; along with a magnificent double rainbow once the rain subsided. They have outdoor heaters for your comfort and both the food and service were excellent. I had the best Elk I have ever eaten and the chocolate dessert is a must have for chocolate lovers (whatever you do, don't share).

    We've dined here twice and on both occasions came away with the impression that the staff are not quite able to keep up with the pace of the restaurant (our appetizers arrived before our first glasses of wine). The wine glasses were streaky and still wet, and the glass on the deck was so dirty you could barely see out of it. It is too bad because the food and location have such potential, but the overall experience is not up to price point.

    Four of us dined with mixed reviews. My heirloom tomato & stonefruit panzanella was fabulous and the albóndigas was enjoyed by two in the party. The soup was described as tasting like a bowl of melted butter with some stock. For our mains two of us enjoyed the Sloping Hill Pork Belly which was a flavourful, melt in your mouth experience - 4.5 out of 5 stars. The Pizza Bascaiola and Wild Boar Bacon Carbonara each received less than stellar reviews. Most disappointing was the service we received from the gentleman serving our table. Barely visible and inattentive when found. Drinks orders were taken for two of us and then he left, leaving our other two dinner companions to order when he returned with the first two drinks!

    Although the atmosphere and the service is fantastic, the food is extremely disappointing in its content. A complete lack of use of local fruits and vegetables is obvious. plating a fantastic piece of elk with a drizzle of watery polenta makes no sense when u have an abundance of new potatoes, and other ground vegetables. Dropping a gorgeous piece of salmon in a watery broth with suspect tortelinni again ruins the bounty that BC and the Okanagan ha to offer. You have access to the best Canada has to offer and you ignore your local grown fare.

    This was our first experience at the restaurant and one of our rare nights out without kids and I must say the night was kind of ruined by the fact that it was extremely hot on the patio. The misters were broken and no effort were made to put up temporary fans in order to cool down the patio. We did not enjoy ourselves at all. Also our waiter never introduced himself and left for the the night without coming over and saying good night. We were left without a waiter for a while until we finally had to ask someone where our waiter was. Food was very good and the view outstanding!

    The first thing you notice at Miradoro is the outstanding view of the Okanagan valley. The restaurant is perched on a hillside overlooking the valley, and has been designed to take full advantage of the view, especially from the outdoor patio. The menu shows the chef's commitment to fresh local ingredients. The food was prepared well and attractively presented. I had the morel crusted elk, which was grilled to perfection, and the recommended wine was a perfect match. The service was prompt and attentive. I would certainly consider returning to Miradoro on my next trip to Oliver.

    It was nice to view the menu online and then do the reservation online as well. You can't beat the location and view! The food was very good and menu selection adequate. Our only complaint was the bland tossed greens that was valued far more than they were worth. Other than that everything was excellent!

    I'm pregnant and therefore requested a mocktail for a drink. I was supposed to get something very tasty with fresh fruits and fruit puree. Instead, I got something plain with a splash of juice in the sparkling water. We ordered 2 apetizers followed by a pizza. It took more than an hour for the pizza to reach our table....not sure why!

    Took some friends from Calgary for their anniversary while they were visiting, and couldn't have given them a better night. We lucked into the fact that a concert was playing in the amphitheatre at the same time, so combined with the beautifully prepared and presented food, the marvellous wines and the scenic patio, dinner was a huge hit!

    We had the meatballs and meat & pickle sampler and the meatballs were bland. For the main course we ordered a pizza and it was greasy and very minimal toppings. If you were going for a garlic pizza, then that's what you should have called it. The best part of the meal was the dessert. The tiramisu was very good and the sponge toffee with chocolate pudding was also very good.

    There is a lot of hype around miradoro and so expectations were as high as the menu prices.The setting and the design of the room is excellent.However there were lots of little kids running around all evening with pizza allover the place and little adult supervision.The food is good but not spectacular.The service is enthusiastically amateur.The wait staff know little about the dishes on the menu nor the wines on the list which rather defeats the objective of a night in a high end winery restaurant.We had to ask twice for bread and when our main dishes arrived the food was placed on a table with no cutlery and we were asked if there was "anything else I can get for you?".........well yes a knife and a fork.!! Sonora room is much better.

    We've been here a few times, and always enjoy the experience and food. The view here simply can't be beat, it's spectacular. On our last visit I had the Tuna in a can appetizer, and the Elk with smoked faro for the main, my wife had the chef's 3 course tasting menu. I really enjoyed the tuna app, but wasn't a fan of my Elk main, most notably the smoked faro. The smokiness of the faro overpowered everything else on the plate, it was just too much. If you like the smell of a forest fire, and always wished you could eat a forest fire, then this would be a dish for you. I finished my meal with the chocolate budini, which is always awesome, love this Miradoro dessert!! My wife really enjoyed all her plates, and we'll be back again.

    My wife and I ordered the chef's special....it was not special. I think he was trying to do too much, or something. There were little gems, like the hand crafted pasta on the main chicken dish, but only about 8 pieces of that. The chicken...meh. The appy was pretty good, better than expected for farmed fish. The desert was an unfortunate blueberry tart. The crust...bulletproof...the blueberries...dessicated to tastelessness. It was sugary. But I expected, and paid, for more.

    The atmosphere was great & it was a hot evening so we got a great seat with a view on the patio. But I have to say, as fancy & renowned as this place was, it was not even close to the best place we ate at during our trip. The wines were not very fantastic, for one. But more so, the recommended wine & food pairings which I went with from the menu were really not that great paired with the food. The food was okay on its own, but there was some element that didn't go very well with it. I had the Elk steak and with smoked farro. The smokey farro wasn't my cup of tea. The elk was cooked well but it was a bit much for me. The budino for dessert sounded great on the menu but just ended up being a chocolate pudding. I expected more.

    This was our second visit to Miradoro at Tinhorn Creek Winery and just like the first visit, the food and service were outstanding. It's hard to beat the beautiful view of the valley and miles of vineyards, from the restaurants lovely deck. What better way to cap off a day of wine tasting, than to enjoy an exquisite dinner artfully presented in a beautiful environment. We would highly recommend checking out the Tinhorn Creek winery, and a night out at Miradora if you're visiting the Okanagan's wine country. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

    We arrived the evening of Fathers' Day fearing it would be crowded and noisy. It was not. We ordered the three course tasting menu with accompanying wines. Their tasting menu features seasonal foods. That day it featured zucchini blossoms stuffed with halibut and new potatoes , duck with young vegetables, followed by a little new rhubarb in the dessert. All were excellent. And the wine pairings were exceptional. Excellent service was also paired with a very pleasant ambiance.
