Spent a fantastic night eating a curry combo with the kids. Kudos to Travis. Lamb, butter chicken and prawns - prefect end to a beautiful rainy day in the Okanagan.

The Bonfire Restaurant is located at the Cove Resort, clientele seem to be mainly resort guests - but they get very busy when a wedding party arrives. Balancing staffing levels with demand is no doubt a challenge, but hotel occupancy rates and wedding scheduling are know well in advance- it's not rocket science. Menu selections include a wide variety of... More

We waited a few minutes before staff tool care of us at the restaurant entrance. No staff to welcome us. Then, service was slow. Food was only ok. Will not return.

We drive over here from Kelowna on a regular basis for this great venue. The location is superb and the food is lovely. Much of it comes from their garden! Ignore the bad reviews and come here and see for yourself.

We went for lunch based on the menu online. The lunch menu was nothing like that posted online. One of us chose the burger which was a beef and pork belly burger with a pinapple ring and cacklings. The burger itself looked pre formed and not house made, the pineapple slice was bigger than the burger and the cracklings were... More

The management of the restaurant is lacking. We ate breakfast twice. The food is good, but the service is terrible. We also had dinner with terrible service and terrible food. We ordered pasta with mushrooms and couldn't even eat it. The atmosphere is quite nice.

had dinner ar The Cove several nights ago. Two of our party had the salmon special and said it was good. Two of us could find nothing in the menu that appealed to us for dinner - lunch would have been fine but pricey.

Glorious day, great location and the patio was lovely. We went for a birthday lunch and unfortunately we were all disappointed. The quesadilla's were the worst I have ever had. Dry, hardly anything on the inside and no sour cream or salsa on the side to help get them down. Very average. Sad because the setting is lovely. The service... More

The atmosphere is quite nice and the seating staff did their best to get us the best table. However the meal was very slow, took over an hour for simple things like pizza and quesadillas. The server was abrupt and seemed distracted keeping the rest of the staff in line. Limited menu for dinner options unless you order their feature.... More
