About the restaurant
If the valley prospers, we prosper. Everything you see on the terrace menu is homemade, grown in the estate's garden or produced locally with our agricultural partners. Chef Patrick's philosophy is that if it grows together, it goes together, which is why we offer wines from the same region to accompany your meal.

About the restaurant
Those behind Socialē by Villa Rosa have been offering consistently great food and wine from both B.C. and Italy for more than 15 years in Penticton. That food, which includes fresh, local produce, and wine complements the atmosphere and makes for an unforgettable experience.

Socialē, which is Okanagan family owned, is the cousin of Villa Rosa Ristorante, which is on hiatus. The soul of that restaurant will live on through Socialē. The Italian wine bar and coffee house has taken the best from Villa Rosa Ristorante and turned it into something even more unique and special.

Socialē is located at 950 Lakeshore Dr. W., in Penticton, mere steps from Okanagan Lake Beach.

Had an amazing evening last night with a friend at the bar. Ben, and all staff, were attentive and professional and generous. The food and wine were exceptional. This is a wonderful addition to Ambleside dining. If you love French cuisine and an intimate setting with exceptional service (and who doesn’t?), I highly recommend this spot.

About the restaurant
*Please call us for large group reservations*

Afghan Kitchen is the manifestation of a young boy’s dream. He roamed the streets of Kabul in his sandals and saw how hard his family worked to sustain themselves. In the times of war, they moved to different neighbouring countries until they finally came to Canada.

Afghan Kitchen presents you the vision of the young boy’s very own restaurant since he was six years old. Every corner of Afghan Kitchen is thoughtfully curated. Every dish uses mum’s recipe.

This is a family-owned and -run business that reflects the best of Afghan roots, traditions, and values. Afghan Kitchen is the taste of home.

It is our first time to Afghan Kitchen. We were really happy with the food, service and the price is reasonable. The owner, Kassib, came to talk to us and introduced himself. Our waitress is very pleasant. We would definitely go back again.
