"Its fairytale pretty indoor/outdoor dining room among the vineyards is aptly named Old Vines Patio. Dinner here as the sun sets over the lake is a treat for the eyes and the palate." The New York Times (October 2006) - "Beyond our tables, the panorama of the lakefront, watercraft wake lines and row upon row of grapevines, with mountains in the distance, was mesmerizing." Wine Spectator (July 2004)- "One of the four best places to dine in the Okanagan."

My friend and I chose old Vines because it was a Christmas lunch. We had an awesome table overlooking the vineyard. Unfortunately the pork belly on the scallop appetizer was not properly cooked. It was cold and rubbery.. other than that it was a very pleasant experience.
Everything was perfect, from the moment we crossed the threshold. Great service, delicious food, good wine, delightful atmosphere, wonderful view - the praise goes on and on. This is as good as it gets. I'd recommend this place to anyone.
Wonderful meal in a gorgeous setting . Start off with a wine tasting and browse through all the great items in the gift shop. End off with a fabulous meal overlooking the vineyards and Okanagan Lake. Always a favourite.
