Where to Eat in Kelowna - Winery Restaurants, Local Cafés, and Authentic World Cuisine

Find a place to stay

Kelowna's status as a wine-growing hub means local vintages feature prominently on many menus. But you don't have to be a wine connoisseur to enjoy the food here. You can get your morning off to a great start at one of the city's popular breakfast joints, or simply kick back at a local café. Kelowna offers everything from sophisticated world cuisine to hearty fast food.

Typical dishes

 

Comfort food with a locavore twist is popular in Kelowna, like steaks, burgers, and gourmet sandwiches made using fresh Okanagan Valley ingredients. Healthy options are also widely available, including vegetarian, gluten-free, and organic dishes.

Downtown Kelowna

 

Kelowna city centre is packed with restaurants and bars, including a number of patios for enjoying a cold beer or classic cocktail on a hot summer's evening. Bouchons Bistro, a 5-minute walk from Waterfront Park, offers sophisticated French cuisine, including desserts like lavender soufflé. At RauDZ, you'll often find people queuing for a table thanks to dishes like handmade parmesan gnocchi in tomato tapenade.
