About the restaurant
The name BLOCK ONE represents the first vineyard planted in 2009 and is very special to
Proprietors Sheri-Lee and Curtis. “It taught us to be farmers; to be ONE with the land. There are things we will never experience again. That vineyard block represents the past – the starting point, getting our
hands dirty, all the ‘firsts’ of our business”. BLOCK ONE represents the future as this vineyard block now produces some of the estate’s finest fruit for our international award-winning wines. You will be amazed by the outdoor seating area of the restaurant. Seating is covered by an engineering wonder in a one-of-a-kind cantilever that is already drawing attention in the world's architectural community. The restaurant moves to an equally impressive indoor space during inclement days and in the winter months.

All groups of 6 and larger are subject to an auto-gratuity of 20%. At this moment we do not have a dog friendly table available.

To start, the service was impeccable. I highly recommend the crudo and venison, you will not be disappointed. Every flavour and ingredient has been carefully chosen to create an outstanding dish. The experience couldn’t have been more positive and this restaurant deserves a 10/10.

About the restaurant
Panoramic views of the valley below; clean lines, and a comfortable atmosphere. Locally sourced ingredients prepared by an award-winning chef. All of this, in the heart of the south Okanagan – with a hint of Mediterranean on the palate.

It’s where rustic meets elegant in delicious harmony.

With an emphasis on seasonal products and a commitment to sustainable practice, the menu at Miradoro is a study in culinary creativity. From the authentic forno oven to a diverse wine list (including library wines), this is the place for food lovers to indulge.

Open from March through December, Miradoro is where you can enjoy a leisurely meal and a glass of wine – whether you’re visiting wine country or you live down the road.

It was great but it appeared the server was a bit overwhelmed although she was lovely. It was really loud though.
