This restaurant serves mostly tapas but it does have a few entrees. I had the the salmon, it was very good. I was disappointed in their beer selection, they should offer more local craft beers. The patio has a great view of the lake.

We stopped here for apps and drinks as soon as we checked in to our hotel. Perfect cocktails, the charcuterie board was a perfect assortment...nothing was left, and the warm foccacia bread was delicious. Wish we had returned for dinner.

We had a selection of tapas and a bottle of local wine. The tapas was presented inventively and tasted very good. The Albarino wine complemented it well. Good and friendly service and attention from the owner. Definitely worth a try.

Eating at a tapas place generally leads to overeating. At Sage that wasn't a problem. The knowledgable wait staff didn't try to up-sell and offered some really good information on local wines (there are many wines in BC--unknown before this trip). Definitely a place to...More
