Waterfront Restaurant wins prestigious honour

Kelowna’s Waterfront Restaurant and Wine Bar was judged the best Okanagan restaurant in the Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards announced this week, while Old Vines Restaurant at Quails’ Gate Estate Winery in West Kelowna was chosen the best winery/vineyard dining.

The tiny Sunset Drive eatery won the same award for top valley eatery last year, while the Terrace at Mission Hill Family Estate Winery won for best winery/vineyard dining last year.

Judging is by a panel of 19 expert judges, who commented, “self-effacing chef Mark Filatow blends the bounty of the Okanagan with a smart and sleek room that’s both funky and affordable.”

Silver went to the Wild Apple Grill under the helm of chef Bernard Cassavant, with bronze going to chef Rod Butters and his team at RauDZ Regional Table.
