My husband and I In kamloops for overnight stay as we are doing the rocky mountaineer the commodore was recommended by staff on the train so we decided to try it out. We weren't disappointed chose 2 of the tapas dishes to share and they were excellent plenty for 2 people they also had a great beer on special so even better staff were very helpful and the strangest thing happened a girl turned up in the bar and rang a bell and preceded to buy everyone in the place a shot! She did it 3 times whilst we were there!! Made our night thank you

We are in Kamloops on business for a week and like to have dinner at different restaurants and today, we chose The Commodore. After a ho-hum experience the night before at Carlos O'Briens, I was hoping to find culinary redemption here. I was not disappointed. There is a very interesting menu, nothing like traditional pub fare. Our server reminded us that they are not a pub but a dining lounge. We first tried the beef tacos from the tapas menu which were excellent then had our main course. I had the seafood curry, which was fabulous. the sauce had a medium spice in a very tasty sauce. We were all impressed with the decor, the service and especially the food.

While we were in Kamloops for a few days we also tried the Commodore. What a cool place we were there after the Car show downtown a couple of days ago, great look and feel to the place. I had heard about their Beef Taco's. I thought a Taco is a Taco boy was I wrong. The meat was fall apart tender and the veggies in them were great. Our server told me they are so popular that they only had two orders left. I felt bad but we ordered the last two they had.

The rest of the food was really good as well. Sometimes you go to a Bar style place and you get just run of the mill food but that is not the case at the Commodore. Nice Surprise. Meet the owner Dino really nice guy with a great attitude for the customers. Have to try something different next time. My friend had the soup, I heard it was great some friend she didnt share said it was to good for me! Thanks Dino.

lots of great live music. Centrally located in downtown Kamloops. Good place to hang out and meet people. More middle aged crowd which is great if you don't want to be surrounded by teenagers.

Thank steve b
