Over a year ago my lovely wife and I visited, and greatly enjoyed our meal at this establishment. While many Penticton eateries can feel over-priced, this establishment offered a lot of value for our money. More recently we returned to find they had a new...More

I went for dinner on my own and booked for 7:45...the dining room was empty before 9, clearly people dine early in Penticton. My waitress was delightful but not very knowledgeable about the wines and their food pairing. I had a wondrous blue cheese with...More

Nice variety from the chef and always a good meal here. The dishes to share are the best. Loved the lentil croquettes.

We've usually had lunch in the sun at Hillside. This time we went for dinner on a chilly evening. The room was warm and cozy. Service was solid. The menu encourages sharing. That's always a pain with only two people. I wish restaurants would forget...More

We were here in 2009 and thoroughly enjoyed the location, food and service. They have changed to a tapas type menu that is ridiculously high priced. Not realizing the change, we were seated but when we saw the menu we excused ourselves and left.

When we arrived for dinner the impression was the essence and ambiance of an Austrian Heuriger. A perfect mixture of food and wine. Even though it is a large room, the high ceilings ensure that it is not noisy making conversation easy. There were six...More

We went there after a long walk quite hungry for a late lunch. They offer outdoor seating which is very nice but also indoor in case it is too cold. We decided to go for some tapas and shared them. Overall the choice was good...More
