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.

    We celebrated our Anniversary and What a lovely evening! Table by the window to watch the sunset over the lake! A bottle of Red Horses Cab/Sav Excellent! We paired it with the 3sisters salad, and both had the beef ribs they are to die for! Filled by the Honey and Pear Pavlova! Excellent service! If you are in Osoyoos this restaurant is a must!! Thanks for the great evening!

    Food is very fresh tasting. A nice presentation of each meal, and a brief description of each dish. Our sever was very pleasant and did a great job of making us feel welcome. Cocktails were delicious, and the local wine was very good.

    Excellent food - our party of 4 ordered salmon entrée, lingcod, beef ribs and duck/beans. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars for ambience is because a large table sat next to us and then it was too loud to talk to our friends who sat across from us at our table.

    We spent a week in the Okanagan and this restaurant was by far the best. We tried the duck cassoulet, the bison tenderloin and the braised beef ribs and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Highly recommended. The view and ambiance made it a perfect evening. We’ll be back for sure.

    We ate on the outside deck overlooking the vineyards and lake - a lovely view that included a distant thunder and lightning show with dessert. While the service is not professional, it is very friendly. And the food is outstanding. We had the elk and ling cod with the chocolate dessert and a very nice bottle of Burrowing Owl cab franc. The elk was perfectly cooked rare, and served with a wonderful sage butter and accompanied by an array of delicious vegetables including a very yummy creamed kale. The cod was nicely crusted and came with chirozo and surprisingly good chestnut noodles in a lovely sauce. This is our second time at the Bear and we will be going back again next year - the drive from Vancouver is well worth it.

    Disappointed that the sudden cooler temperatures that day meant that the patio was not available; however, we were seated at a pleasant table overlooking it. Our brunch dishes were outstanding; my husband had the venison burger and I had the beet-cured salmon/eggs benedict with perfectly poached eggs and delicious hollandaise sauce. Service was genial and attentive, in spite of the busyness that morning. The only slightly negative aspect was a large group of conference attendees at the long table near ours—some of the people were much too loud! Once their food arrived and they began eating, the noise level dropped considerably. After we finished our meals, the sun came out and we were able to go out on the patio to enjoy the view. We’d very much like to return for dinner the next time.

    The food and the views were amazing, but the service wasn't great. We waited 15 minutes for a drink menu and water, and another 10 minutes for our drinks after we ordered them. The food probably took half an hour, and my husband sat with an empty wine glass for a good 10 minutes before the server checked on us again. The supervisor apologized for the wait time and comped our first two drinks, but the server herself wasn't super friendly. I would definitely try it again, because of the food and the views, and would just hope for more attentive service.

    We went for the experience of the indigenous food and it was certainly interesting. Food quality was okay, but the menu was not well laid out and was a bit confusing. Service was average. Wine selection was poor. Overall the cost was way out of proportion to the quality. It was fine to do once, but would not go back.

    Probably the best meal I have ever had. We ordered beef ribs, lingcod, and the elk and they were all perfectly cooked and tasted amazing. The portion size was just enough to make you full and not have any food left over. Dessert was also amazing. The server was very knowledgeable and knew the menu very well and explained it when we sat down. It is definitely a restaurant for later teens and adults who appreciate food, as it would be a waste it bring kids here since the food is more sophisticated. We also very much enjoyed how all the food was inspired by the First Nations culture here and how all the ingredients were from BC. The location is beautiful overlooking the vineyard, the lake and the town of Osoyoos. Definitely would recommend sitting on the patio if you were coming in the summer. Overall, if you are in the area or staying at the resort this restaurant is a must to try.

    Horrible lunch - not only slow (1 hour wait for lunch food) but also poor attitude of supervisors on duty. The one lady really thought she was too good for her job - made us all feel belittled. Given this place so many chances - never again despite staying here. Much friendlier service and better food in town and at other wineries.
