Description: Mica Restaurant The name is taken from Mica Creek which is located just to the north of Nk'Mip resort and drains into Osoyoos Lake. The creek is an integral part of the eco system which provides the fish from the lake, grapes from the vineyards and produce from the local farms. At Mica Restaurant we strive to offer the best of this local bounty in all that we do by featuring local food, wine and producers. This bounty is delivered through a style of service that is both efficient and polished while at the same time being friendly and welcoming.

“Poor service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

We arrived on time for a dinner reservation for four people and were told we could not have a table on the deck as we had requested, only inside, unless we wanted to wait 20 minutes? Several empty tables inside. We opted for the inside table, but were then told there were no menus available so we would have to wait 20 minutes for an inside table. My wife spotted a couple of menus on a desk outside the restaurant and so suggested one of those would do, but we were then told a walk in table of 12 had just come in so there were no wait staff available for 20-30 minutes, so could we wait outside the restaurant or at our table but with no service? We said, OK, we'll wait at our table, to which the hostess replied "we want to offer you good service, so you'll need to wait here for your table". I guess all of the options we were given were simply a ruse, and the fact was the restaurant took a reservation from us and didn't honour it. Instead of standing outside for more crappy service we chose to enjoy a fantastic meal at the nearby Mirador. When we last stayed here two years ago this place was great, but there are plenty of better options today.

“Overpriced, Poor service, Food OK.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

Service was very, very slow. We had a reservation for the patio and were sat in the corner at the back, when a front table came available a few minutes after our arrival we asked to move and were told it was for reservations only (which we had!!!). The mashed potatoes were powdered, the meat and cheese tray was warm. Overall, Smitty's in Osoyoos would be better.

“Very Disappointing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

Gorgeous view!!
The service was disappointing. Very unprofessional and rushed.
Not mindful of the customer at all.
Limited menu.
We were given a 4 page menu but could only choose from ONE of the pages! Bad form.

“Beautiful views and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

Our waitress was a little cold but the gorgeous view over the lake made up for it! Ordered the steak frites and enjoyed the hot sunshine! The Pinot Blanc they make is delicious.
