Modern Vineyard Cuisine inspired by our Indigenous roots. We proudly sit on the traditional land of the Syilx People of the Okanagan Nation. Our inspiration for the name of our new signature restaurant comes from a chaptik story passed down through the generations of our First Nations people of the Okanagan.
The Syilx People of the Okanagan Nation approach to food is based on the creation stories of their culture and we’ve taken their stories as the inspiration for the name of our restaurant: “The Bear, The Fish, The Root & The Berry,” based on the story of the Four Food Chiefs.
The Four Food Chiefs are central: Skimxist Black Bear (chief of animals, representing self-sacrifice, leadership, giving), Ntytikxw Chinook Salmon (water creatures, perseverance, hard work), Speetlum Bitterroot (plants below the round, relationships to the land) and Seeya Saskatoon Berry (plants above ground, growth, strength, community) are legendary and the elements of indigenous cuisine.

    Have had 2 dinners here, and in both instances, they were terrific experiences. The food is both interesting and delicious. The desserts in particular are creative works of art that are also delicious. The last dinner was part of ‘Dine Around’, and the wine pairings were very nice, unlike a restaurant in Kelowna we went to. Would recommend this, especially for a dpecial occasion dinner.

    Very nice Dine Around meal with friends, the cod entree was very good and the portions were all just right. Regular menu portions can be enormous. Enjoyed our server who was from Poland, just the right amount of attention and no rushing. A pleasant evening only a small issue - window side tables are cool, bring a sweater or wrap.

    Camryn was incredibly knowledgeable and kind to us, with fast and efficient service! Portions were way bigger than we thought they would be. Three of us shared the hot crab & fish dip with bannock and the Salmon platter (noted for sharing) and all three of us almost regretted ordering dinner too, as there was so much food! Perhaps we should have just had one appie! Great value all around and very generous dinner portions too! Had a fantastic dessert that we took home and shared later! One dessert, Okanagan Black Forest and a couple of hours later a few sweet bites shared by three of us were a great treat!! Nice take on a classic cake that I love!

    We have visited this restaurant on several occasions. Our dinner was outstanding and truly enjoyed the meal, however, we felt our server was rushed which may have been the reason he seemed to forget things. Unfortunately, we did not see him after he presented us with our bill. We paid our bill and left without seeing him again. He was very pleasant and knowledgeable regarding the menu. It was a cold evening and we thought the restaurant was extremely cold, which meant we along with some others, ate with our coats on. Unfortunately, we did not mention this to the servers as we sat there all evening in our coats. As we leaving it seemed like the heat had come on.

    This is my second time at this restaurant. It wasn’t very busy as it’s off season but that did not affect the quality of the meal or the service. I was pleasantly pleased. It was delicious and the perfect amount of food.

    Not sure what happened to the fish chowder but it was way too thick and pasty and contained too many potatoes! I do remember a fish chowder at your restaurant that was thin and tasty, maybe a couple of years ago. I don’t think I will order this again as it was disappointing. We did enjoy the bannock and spreads.

    Disappointed after it was recommended by friends. Plate was warm but the food could have been hotter. The large breakfast was disguised by sausages cut in half and lots of arugula. It was tasty but could’ve been better. Fabulous views and service was good but did not think it was value for money. Sadly, have no inclination to return.

    We planned this visit specifically to sample the wine at the winery. When I found out the restaurant was located there we had to get a reservation and try it as well and we were not disappointed. One of the best meals we’ve enjoyed in awhile and the Nk’Mip wine selections make it even better. I would drive out of my way to come back if I was ever in the area again! Incredible.

    The premises need attention - the seat cushions were dirty, the plastic "wicker" edging was cracked and peeling off. The servers did what they could, but were inattentive. The food plates were not removed in a timely manner, the water was not refilled until we asked, they seemed not to really know where the food was sourced or how it was prepared. Most disappointingly, the food was either "blah" (lacked seasoning or any form of flavour) or seemed to have salt poured on them. It was a lot of money for a very disappointing meal.
