Kelowna lake view restaurants

Often I get approached with queries regarding the best dining options in town. No matter the season or what the unpredictable Kelowna (YLW) weather forecast may bring, I almost always suggest restaurants that come with a lake view.

As such, I have created a list of the best lake view restaurants (as far as I’m concerned) in Kelowna and nearby towns, that are north and south of the city. 

When curating this list, I made an effort to include options that are either within walking distance to the lake (a common Okanagan perk) or contain a view of one.

Outside of downtown Kelowna, I have found that the best lake view restaurants are either apart of a resort or winery. Either way, you really can’t go wrong!

A note that some of the following restaurants are age restricted, so be sure to double check if you are making a reservation with a minor. Also, if you’re booking a table between April and November, you’ll definitely need a reservation.

From West Kelowna to Vernon, any of the below spots will add a little extra to your dining experience. Whether you are coming back from the beach, taking a shopping break, or celebrating an occasion… you can consider yourself covered.
