About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Our name is taken from Mica Creek which is located just north of the Nk’Mip resort and drains into the Osoyoos Lake. Although only one aspect, it is an integral part of the eco system, which then provides life to the vineyards, the orchards, the local fish and wildlife. Just as the creek is a vital part of a bigger entity, so too is Mica Restaurant a part of the much larger NK’MIP Resort.

Nestled in the idyllic hills above Osoyoos, Mica Restaurant enjoys panoramic views of the lake, the mountainside, and the vineyards. Possessing not one but two outdoor patios, Mica offers the best outdoor dining experience in the valley. Our menu, featuring both small & large plates, is the perfect culinary diversion and our list of hand-crafted wines, from wineries located within a day trip of Spirit Ridge, will both focus and inspire your wine explorations.
Break away from your everyday to Mica and experience Wine-Country Casual at its best.

Good food, though came lukewarm, likely because the one server was run off her feet. Nice to have a good restaurant in the hotel for guests, though be warned: in spite of OpenTable reservations for 8:30, Mica closed at 8pm on Saturday night. Thankfully, the restaurant called us and a table was found for us at 7!

This is a good moderate priced eatery , pleasant server but a limited wine list , food arrived hot and cooked to our order so overall l would rate this a four star restaurant , the view helps with the rating overlooking the vineyards and lake .

Portions were very small. Salmon dish wouldn’t fill a woman with a small appetite let alone a teenager. Nicoise came with 2 small potatoes. Potatoes are inexpensive, really? Everyone went back to the villa but needed to eat again. We’re Canadian, not accustomed to large portions. Try the Watermark, much better food and bigger portions. They also have a bread basket.

My husband ordered prawns with pasta and gave it an “ok” rating. I ordered the steelhead salmon. It was a 10/10. Perfectly done! Another person in our group ordered chorizo pizza. He gave it an 8/10.

Very good dinner, beautiful view, great service!
I would recommend this restaurant.

Had reservations and could not get a table on the patio. The website is outdated' they do not have mussels, clams and lamb as the website indicates. The server ignored us for 20 mins, I had to flag someone done. The wine is horribly expensive over $14 for a glass of wine is overpriced. Many better resturants in the area.

We dined at this place last year and it was amazing, but it didn’t exactly live up to our expectation this year. The appetizers were great, we ordered the truffle potatoes and the tuna tacos, but the dinner was a little disappointing. The pork ribs was too dry and the taste was not great. The amount of garlic in Ravioli was just overwhelming and the grilled peach pizza was nice but the crust was too flat and the taste was not anything exceptional.
Overall we really enjoyed the view and the service, but were not blown away by the food.

Food was ok, service not so much. Waited forever at each step, at a wine focused restaurant they really need to get some on the table quickly. Me girlfriend had to get up find our server and order dessert, 20 minutes after getting the dessert menu, then had to stare at her dessert while waiting for her coffee. Kinda annoying.

Great server although the servers were stretched thin. The vegetables were few and far between on the plate. The baked brie had a “trail mix” that DID NOT go with the dish at all.

It was pretty quiet there and the staff was noticeably annoyed when we showed up for our 9pm reso (hoping they could go home early I suppose). But the food was great as was the wine! I would definitely go again just maybe in high season.

The restaurant manager had no idea that we were there for a complimentary chef’s dinner, or even what that is, it seemed. Even though we had specified same during our reservation. Her solution? A free entrée. Luckily the food was great and our server was understanding. Too bad about the incompetent manager.
The Hotel that houses the restaurant more than made up for a negative experience at the restaurant. Thank you Tammi and front end staff. We would definitely return.

Exceptional service from Erin the waiter, friendly and attentive. I have dietary restrictions and Eric was very accomodating for my needs. My husband, however, forgot to mention he doesn't eat cheddar and the beef dip comes with white cheddar. No problem, a new one was ordered without fuss.
Highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for casual fine dining for a reasonable price.

We enjoyed our stay at the Spirit ridge resort as well as the food at Mica restaurant
We had a different expectation of the restaurant thinking that it was more formal.
However that did not take away from the fact that we had a good time , enjoyed great food and the staff was super helpful and friendly.

We were a little disappointed in the restaurant. We were a party of six and two were not happy with their meals. We had had lunch on the Patio at same resort z(Spirit Ridge) and it was fantastic so a little letdown by Mica.
I think the turning point was when the waitress, while chatting with us, said she was busy and had to go to another table. It was a bit abrupt as there had not been a long conversation.

Loved our food at Mica. I had the mushroom ravioli, hubby had a perfectly cooked steak. Service was great and so was the view. We also loved the wine selection from the valley. Had an old wine from the reserve list. We will be back for sure!

Stopped by Spirit Ridge for dinner at Mica. A friend had told me they dialed in the deck. We sat on the deck overlooking the vineyard and Osoyoos while the sun is setting is a great relaxing experience.

Our party of 4 had a variant of salads and mains and I tried all dishes. The Char was cooked to perfection and was so juicy and flavorful!! The ribeye was large and cooked perfectly-Med rare.
The blueberry creame brûlée was exceptional.
We were well looked after by attentive staff who anticipated our needs along the way.

Well done to Mica and their team. We will be back

We were with friends visiting from Germany. We chose your restaurant as a destination as part of our journey. Two of us are from Victoria BC.

It was a lovely day, the outlook was wonderful and the food was good, nicely presented and good service.

I had a question and the gentleman inside the restaurant was extremely helpful.

I definitely will return, likely bringing friends.

The customer services was excellent here and the views are spectacular. Bonus - its next door to their winery which is top notch. Our meals (chicken and steak) were very good but I would not recommend the prawns which were flavourless and overcooked. Dessert was fantastic and the wine options are impressive. Would definitely go again. We brought am 8 year old with us and he enjoyed a great meal as well.

The entire evening at Mica was fantastic. We started off the night ordering our favorite drink, a Ceasar. It was amazing. Our meal was outstanding and the the service exceptional.

We will definitely be going back on our next visit to Osoyoos.
