Description: Bouchons, an elegant French Bistro, opened for business on May 14th 2004 in the heart of Kelowna’s cultural district, a two minute walk from the Delta Grand Hotel. Offering French regional comfort food in a casual elegant European ambiance, the goal was to bring to the beautiful Okanagan Valley a restaurant of international calibre.

Just ate at Bouchons yesterday with my best friend. The service was very professional and the food reminded me fondly of my travels to France. The price fixe menu is a fantastic deal at $52 and they have an impressive wine list. Even when they ran out of items on the price fixe menu, they replaced them with something even more amazing. We truly enjoyed every course and the decor/atmosphere is equally as charming. Would definitely return. Be sure to make a reservation, the staff is quite responsive.

If you are wanting to get to France and may not have the travel budget- or want to reminisce of days gone by while in France....
Book a reservation at Bouchons

A formal dining atmosphere yet allows the more casual Okanagan dress code is completely acceptable.

Food is classic French dishes
Great cheese platers, and offer a multi ‘course’ menu that can be quite creative.

With Fries- frites to all that dine- served in a cone of paper to enjoy with your main course

A classic and quality option for a special dinner, or when you want to escape the cookie cutter ‘reheated food served at the many chains that are in Kelowna’

Sitting in Bouchons you'd be hard pressed to believe you're actually in downtown Kelowna. It truly looks and feels like the real deal including the decorations and furnishings, the menu board in French and a great selection of traditional French dishes. The food is pretty good - I thoroughly enjoyed the country pate appetizer, red snapper and creme caramel dessert (all on the prix fixe menu for $52). My table mates loved the steaks frites and beef filet. The service is excellent, the prices fair if a little on the high side and the dining room very comfortable.

We have been going to Bouchons since they opened around 2004 and it has always been one of our favourite restaurants in Kelowna. Excellent food and service. We were then sad to hear it was being sold to new owners a few years ago. We kept on going during the year long transition where the original owners stayed on to help out. Luckily all was still the same.

However, they have now started making changes and none for the better. We have been back twice this year and both times it was not up to the usual high standards we have come to expect from this place. It is small things like the presentation of the food, other times it is the food itself. We used to love the crispy Steak Frites - now they are soggy french fries. The Rack of Lamb is also not what it used to be. I understand that it is hard to keep up the quality the prior owners had but there have just been been too many changes. It is all too easy to fall into mediocrity which I believe is what is happening. Sadly. it is no longer our favourite place to go.

This is our goto place to eat as we pass through Kelowna. Always good to great. Great service.

The menu has changed but we generally order off the chalk board.
