Description: The South Okanagan has gained a well deserved reputation as a desirable destination for tourists seeking an agricultural and culinary experience. The Sonora Room at Burrowing Owl Estate Winery features prominently in this regard with its epicurean excellence, superb service, relaxed style and scenic splendour. The restaurant overlooks 146 acres of picturesque vineyard from the patio or inside the warm and inviting dining room. The philosophy of the talented culinary team is to embrace the opportunity to showcase many of the South Okanagan’s local producers. Dishes are created that utilize an array of local organic produce, seasonal fruits and artisan cheeses, and pair perfectly with Burrowing Owl's award winning wines. The exclusive wine list includes a selection of Burrowing Owl's current vintages, and library wines that are no longer publicly available for sale. Creative cuisine, impeccable service and a beautiful venue highlight the great agricultural diversity of the region.

We had an amazing lunch on the deck. The food was outstanding and you can't beat the view from the deck. Our waitress was very good. Over all a very pleasant experience and would go again in a heartbeat!

“You want to eat here”
Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

We stopped here after playing golf in Oliver for a late lunch. At 3.15 lunch was over but there was an appetizer menu so we took a seat on the balcony to enjoy antipasti, smoked tuna albacore and heirloom tomato salad. Together with the amazing view and delicious wine it was the perfect end to a great day. We have been to Burrowing Owl many times over the years and have never been disappointed.

“Perfect in every way ”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

Just had dinner on the patio of the Sonora Room & it was perfect!
Service was attentive & not overbearing. Pleasant server & wait staff. Food was amazing, fresh & locally sourced & paired perfectly with The Burrowing Owl wines. 6pm was good timing to enjoy the sun & watch it set post dinner.
Highly recommended & will definitely be back!

“Sunset on the Deck 2”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Another gorgeous evening on the deck. The meal was again excellent with a nice Burrowing Owl merlot. Service was well above par and Chef Brock visited our table for a chat. The personal touch and experience make this a regular stop on our wine tour experience. Yes, they take reservations. The outside deck gives you a view and the feel of the vineyard. Inside is just as nice if it too hot outside. The menu is simple with something for everyone.

An amazing meal - simply delicious and perfection. Our food was so beautiful we had to take pictures. More importantly, everything was prepared perfectly and with such attention to detail. It was fun discovering tiny fruits and vegetables in the dishes that I had never eaten before. Simply lovely.
