Nice location but the entrée Veal Osso Bucco served were not up to par and for the price you pay its too expensive and portion too small and toughest meat for a Veal dish, I I had better in other places!

Abience was nice, staff was friendly, food was so-so. My choice was roast duck breast and this was still raw in the middle. No offer to change this and no feedback with suggestion chef goes back to school.i

Well for starters the wine is nothing to write home about, but everyone's tastes are different. The best thing we had was a wine from a different Vinyard. The food was bland, the place was dirty and the service was unfriendly and slow. It was...More

The South Okanagan has gained a well deserved reputation as a desirable destination for tourists seeking an agricultural and culinary experience. The Sonora Room at Burrowing Owl Estate Winery features prominently in this regard with its epicurean excellence, superb service, relaxed style and scenic splendour. The restaurant overlooks 146 acres of picturesque vineyard from the patio or inside the warm and inviting dining room. The philosophy of the talented culinary team is to embrace the opportunity to showcase many of the South Okanagan’s local producers. Dishes are created that utilize an array of local organic produce, seasonal fruits and artisan cheeses, and pair perfectly with Burrowing Owl's award winning wines. The exclusive wine list includes a selection of Burrowing Owl's current vintages, and library wines that are no longer publicly available for sale. Creative cuisine, impeccable service and a beautiful venue highlight the great agricultural diversity of the region.
