La Bussola: Exquisite cuisine
Gillian and I had just come out from the concert about 10:15PM and were looking for a place to eat...but most of the restaurants had closed...except this one.
The friendly hostess welcomed us hungry travellers and we sat down to some great food, simple but soooo tasty.
The decor is elegant but not pretentious.
Favorite Dish: I had the chicken in herbs and a small Italian salad....splendid!!
Gillian had a small dish of pasta as an appetizer followed by veal Milanese
( See, I got it right!!! )

Earls on Top: Million Dollar View
Earls is a franchise restaurant in western Canada. This particular Earls is located on the top floor of a building right on the shoreline of Lake Okanagan. The view alone makes it worthwhile. It was a little windy but there were plexiglass panels to cut down on the breeze. I could have just sipped wine and stared out at the setting sun making the water sparkle. The meal only added to the whole experience. The service was pretty good. Prices tend to be just a little higher at Earls but I thought it was money well spent.
Favorite Dish: Honestly, I cannot remember what I ate here. It was good, though, as I enjoyed the meal. It was likely either a salmon or pasta dish. Food at Earls is consistently good no matter what city I'm in. This Earls also has, as you'd expect, an extensive selection of wine from the local Okanagan wineries.

Freddy's Brewpub: Good beer, quality food.
Beer made onsite that you can enjoy in the pub or in the bowling alley. The head chef, John, makes great curry dishes on Fridays. Large theater complex is right next door so have dinner and a beer, then take in a movie.
Favorite Dish: Try any of the curry dishes on Fridays or for a light snack anytime try the Chop Chop Salad.
