The octopus was especially good. Disappointed that the had run out of Halibut and there was no chicken or white meat on offer. When we last dined here we were delighted that Tinhorn Creek wine was only marked up a little (taking advantage of the fact that it's already there on site). It's a shame that the newer owners have opted to gouge us on the mark up as it encourages us to go for less than perfect wine pairing.
If you are looking for delicious greens, (which appear hard to come by on many of the menus in this area!) their kale caesar with a pickled egg is delightful and so, so fresh. The halibut with wild nettle and ricotta gnudi defied expectations, and even the chicken strips for the kids were of the best quality (and we have tried chicken strips in fancy places around the world, for better or for worse). Our server Emily was professional and lovable. We drank in the views from the patio as our kids parkoured in the amphitheater below. An overall perfect lunch experience.
Dear Anonymous, Thank you for your comments. We love your description of our menu items and are very pleased that you enjoyed your visit! We agree, Emily is a valued member of our team! Do stop by when you are next in the area. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
I was really disappointed on my recent visit to this highly recommend and, in my opinion, over hyped restaurant. Fist of all, the pancetta pizza was decent, but the wild boar pasta was served cold, sauce was too watery and the taste was rather bland. The real disappointment came in the form of a lamb dish that was essentially the bacon part or stomach that was rolled and seared. Sounds amazing, but the searing was over the top, so much so that I would recommend garden shears to cut through the tough outter crust and what awaited you was a chewy mess of flavours packed inside. The service was very much non existent and not at all knowledgeable. Now we are NOT picky eaters, fussy or entitled, we simply wanted a decent meal, especially at the final price that we paid. The view was pretty spectacular, but again, if you're going to pay these top end prices, you should get a well rounded and thoughtfully prepared meal.
Dear Murray W, Thank you for your review. We offer our apologies that your expectations were not met. Both of those items are some of the most popular on the menu and we are sorry that this was not rectified on the night. I will liaise with our Executive Chef to ensure that these items are being prepared as per his direction. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Enjoyable as usual!
Wonderful patio. Amazing scenery. Great service and food.
Dear Stella, Thank you for your review. It sounds like we met your expectations on all fronts. Do visit us again next time you are in the area. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
An absolutely wonderful meal in the most stunning location! Cannot recommend enough!
Dear Bc80, Thank you for your comments. It's great that you enjoyed your visit and we look forward to taking care of you again. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The service from the team was excellent and the charcuterie board one of the best we've had, though the menu is a bit pizza and pasta heavy. Exceptional wine and local ingredients. Overall a great experience!
Dear VanLee, Thank you for your comments. It's very pleasing to hear you thoroughly enjoyed your visit overall! Do stop by again when you're next in the area. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Overall it was really nice. Pizza's were most excellent and the service was amazing. The haddock was a disappointment. Fish was nice but sauce was bland and the "balls" that came with it hardly made it a pasta dish. Overall compared to the pizza's despite costing considerably more the portion size was small.
Dear MarkB, Thank you for your feedback. It's great to hear that you were pleased with your overall experience. I will review the halibut dish with our Executive Chef to ensure it is being portioned correctly. We do look forward to having you in again. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Enjoyable atmosphere. We opted for the wine tasting flight unfortunately the wine comes in unmarked identical glasses even the server wasn’t sure which wine was which when it arrived at our table. A nice touch would have the glasses marked so the wine tasted could be compared with confidence.
The food was delicious my wife had the beet lasagna and I had the 3 course chefs table.
Dear Ronv, Thank you for your review. Lovely to hear that your visit met expectations. Sorry for the misstep on the wine flight, on your next visit we'd be only to happy to write the varietals out for you. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Only good for pizza and wine. Salads are over dressed, the roasted olives are drowned in chilli oil. But pizza is excellent, wine very good.
Dear Foodie1, Thank you for your review. Great to read that you loved your pizzas and wine choices. Sorry that your expectations weren't met for salad and olives - we would have been only too happy to remake those for you. We look forward to having you in again. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
View was awesome
Restaurant was clean and nice
Food was bland
Food was overpriced for what we received
Portions where small
Plate lacked imagination very few vegetables
Wine good but pricey
Dear Anonymous, Thank you for your review. It's pleasing to hear that you enjoyed the ambience in the restaurant. Our apologies that you did not enjoy your meal. We will liaise with the back of house teams to ensure that the dishes are being portioned and presented as intended. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Excellent food and wine experience, first class service, as always. The octopus dish is probably the best we’ve ever had.
Dear Lynn, Thank you for your review. It is very pleasing to hear you enjoyed all aspects of your recent visit and that expectations were met. We look forward to having you in again. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
It was about 10 minutes before we got some water. We should’ve at least been acknowledged within a couple of minutes. Our server said she was new, but still. I’d go for the view, a kale salad, and a pizza, but $32.00 for pasta...really?! I could make a carbonara with boar bacon for four for about $20.00 and that’s a fresh pasta from scratch, baby. Our pizza was excellent though, and the view is unbeatable.
Dear JonathanG, Thank you for your review. Our apologies for the delay in your water. Our service procedures call for this to be poured right away so will review with our front of house team to avoid any missteps in the future. It is satisfying to hear you enjoyed your menu choices and the view. Do stop by again in the future. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
The setting is absolutely stunning. Food and wine were a little pricey but overall a wonderful experience.
Dear EllenM, Thank you for your review. It's great to hear that you had a wonderful experience on your visit. Please stop by again soon. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Location and ambience is very nice. Service and food fell way short of expectation. Chef’s menu was just okay - family style serving was very odd for a tasting menu. We had two pescatarians - server was not open to accommodating at first. They did added fish courses, but did not adjust the wine pairings - served a heavy red with halibut. Certainly lacked attention to detail. There are better choices in the Oliver area.
Dear P987YOW, Thank you for your review. Our apologies that you did not enjoy our Chef's menu format, this is a constantly changing menu so we will add your comments into future planning. It is pleasing that we were able to create custom fish courses on the fly and agree that while red wine may have matched the plate setup, it may not have been the best choice for the protein. We do hope to have you in again to enjoy an a la carte dinner. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Was my husband’s birthday celebration . The spectacular View and quality of food is one of our favourite in this valley. Chef is not afraid of using his spices. Always have flavourful specials. The duck was amazing! Perfectly cooked. As always, the clams with chorizo was delicious. The tomatoe broth had a great blend of flavour.
Hello Tam, Thank you for your review and for choosing us for your special occasion. We are very pleased to consistently be one of your favourites in the valley. Do stop by again this summer. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Great place and food. Server did his job but had an attitude that we couldn’t figure out if it was us or him. Was my wife’s birthday so unfortunately it wasn’t the experience I was hoping for, for her. I would return but wouldn’t sit in his section if working.
Dear SeanD, Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed the ambience and menu-also that we were able to accommodate multiple allergies at the last minute. Our apologies that the service wasn't to your expectations and we do look forward to your return in the future. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Great experience as always!
She had perfectly cooked clams with chorizo in a hearty tomato sauce, and a really good duck breast and I had potato & leek pure and 30 day dry aged prime rib steak with grilled oyster mushrooms. We both enjoyed awesome tiramisu that was mouth watering delicious. Coffee topped the meal really well.
Dear JayM, Thank you kindly for your review. It was a pleasure to take care of you and very pleasing to read that you enjoyed everything that came across your table. We do hope to have you both in again. Sincerely, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Wonderful way to celebrate my birthday ! Another couple who had not been to Miradoro joined us and we all had a lovely dinner experience! Thank you!
Dear Wendy, Thank you for your review. It was lovely to look after you again as always. Do join us for a communal dinner in the future. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager

Hello Etienne, Thank you for your comments. It was a pleasure taking care of you and we hope you make the trip down from Summerland again soon. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Consistently superb food and great service. With the price-fixe menu for March, the value is outstanding as well. We have been several times and have never been disappointed. Miradora is amongst the best if not the best restaurant in the Okanagan valley.
Hello Bob, Thank you for your review. It was lovely to have you rejoin us and Manny, Jeff and I look forward to your next visit. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
We have been to Miradaro quite a few times. Never a disappointment. It is one of our favourite places.
Dear Anonymous, Thank you for your visit and review. It's pleasing that we are one of your go-to spots and we look forward to hosting you again. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
New Years so busy time. Service is ok but not great attention to detail as it represents itself as fine dining. Had the set menu which was good. Regular menu good selection.
Dear Anonymous, Thank you for your comments. Glad you enjoyed the wide range of choices on the evening and we do hope to have you in again soon. Safe Travels, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Was wondering evening! Well done!

Dear LiannaP, Thank you for your review. So pleased that we consistently meet your expectations and look forward to your next visit! Kind Regards Sam Lymbery General Manager
The meatballs were outstanding as well as the chocolate mousse for dessert. My wife’s steak was not up to par.
Staff was very friendly and helpful and of course Tin Horn wine was excellent.
Will return next we are in Oliver
Dear SeanG, Thank you for your comments. Pleasing to hear you enjoyed almost all aspects and we look forward to your return visit. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager

Have the duck, it’s to die for.

We had a very nice dinner as it was my wife's birthday. Our reservation was 6:30 PM in December so it was dark. We'll be sure to return again in the summer in order to take in the views while dining,
Dear RandyM, Thank you for your comments and pleased that you chose to celebrate your occasion with us. The summer views are something that we are known for and we look forward to seeing you in the future. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
From requesting a table booking on-line, to changing the head count verbally, to pre-ordering the meal, and the quick delivery of the meal, the service was flawless. Delicious food, great scenery, and wonderful service. Thank you and yes, I would definitely recommend to others.
Dear NancyT, Thank you for your review. Very pleased to hear that you enjoyed all aspects of your visit from the organization, the meal and service to the room itself. Thank you for recommending us to others and we look forward to your next visit. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery
Service and food was fantastic. Meatballs were the only thing that lacked a little flavor. Other than that excellent
Dear JenniferR, Thank you for your review. It was my pleasure to look after you and your guests. Great to hear that you enjoyed almost all aspects of your visit. Looking forward to having you in again. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Thank you Manny for your hands on service! Always above and beyond.
Dear SerenaS, Thank you for your review. It's super to hear that Manny accommodated you with the service he is known for. Do come by again soon. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
A good friend and I had lunch at Miradoro as part of a girls' special day out. We were a bit early for our reservation, so we spent a little time in the tasting room where we had an exceptional experience. Alas, this did not continue in the dining room as our waiter seemed a bit "off his game" that day. He was not as welcoming nor as attentive as we expected, nor as I had experienced on past visits to Miradoro. The food and wine were very good, although I thought $17 for a glass of (albeit very good) red wine was a bit pricey.
Dear Lynne, Thank you for your review-our apologies that your expectations were not met. It was pleasing to hear you enjoyed your food and wine choices and that we were able to provide gluten free options. We too agree that the Whole Cluster Cabernet Franc is great and we do hope you visit again. All the best in dining, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Communal table event was nice. I enjoyed the Haida Gwaii theme and education.
Dear DavidM, Thank you for your review and for joining us at our popular Tuesday communal dinners. Chef endeavours to create a wide variety across the communal program and glad to hear he met expectations on your visit. We hope to see you in again. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
2 of the food items order were bowls of soup & the special pizza (1) $11 for a bowl of soup which contained maybe a cup of soup ... insane (2) pizza was goood but it would have been nicer if a topping were on every bit or at least every other bite - there was a lot of crust which contained nothing on top
Dear ValerieS, Thank you for your feedback, it was a pleasure to serve you on your special occasion. I will liaise with our Executive Chef to be sure that our soups are being portioned as always. I am also sorry hear that you were dissatisfied with your daily pizza as it is one of our most popular menu items. Had either of your issues been brought to my attention on your visit I would have personally adjusted this for you. We do hope to have you in again. Sincerely, Sam Lymbery General Manager
We live nearby & have never been disappointed by the food & service! Great place for the location & view!
Dear Terry, Thank you for your review. We value our locals and it is pleasing to hear that you can rely on us for a great experience on all fronts. We look forward to your next visit. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
The food was very overpriced for what was offered , plus it was not very well cooked the steak which is 56.00 was not up to the standards of a high priced restaurant tough and over cooked , the potatoes were burned and the mushrooms were very salty and mushy , the caesar salads were very good but overall the experience was not great .
Dear abarth, Thank you for your review. Our sincere apologies that your menu expectations were not met when you visited. We will review that menu item to ensure it is being prepared to our Executive Chef's exacting standards. It is pleasing to see that you enjoyed our ambience and service. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
This is my 4th time at a long table event over the past 4 years and the quantity of food has gone down. I think the timhorn creek wines should also be at or close to the winery price for the tinhorn creek wines. Probably would not go back.
Dear DaleL, Thank you for your review and continued patronage over the years. As always we will endeavour to deliver great value at our communal dinner events and we would welcome you back in the future. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
