4 Romantic Restaurants in Kelowna for Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is upon us and whether you are a Kelowna local or visiting from afar we know you will be looking for the best romantic restaurants in town.
Located on Sunset Drive, a short walk away from the waters of Lake Okanagan, Bouchons Bistro is a sophisticated French Bistro that has been a fixture in Kelowna since 2004. And no one does romance quite like the French. Parisian décor cocooned by a soft, rich ambiance awaits you as you pour through their extensive wine menu featuring offers from both British Columbia and France.
With their robust brunch and dinner options, you can book your reservation for mid-afternoon or late-night. Try the Cassoulets (rich, slow-cooked casseroles), Foie gras de canard (Duck Foie Gras), or Lapin à la moutarde (Rabbit in mustard sauce) for an authentic French meal.
The Bohemian Cafe & Catering Co.
In the heart of downtown on Berard Avenue, The Bohemian Cafe & Catering Co. is perfect for a romantic breakfast, brunch, or lunch. Open until 2 – 2:30 PM daily, this café has an award-winning menu (Best of Kelowna) filled with locally sourced options. If “sustainable” is the three syllables that warm your cheeks on V-Day, then Bohemian Café is for you.
A warm, bright atmosphere will make you feel like you’re eating at your home-away-from-home. Choose from homemade back bacon, homemade breadstuffs, and homemade jam to complete the cozy, romantic feel.
RauDZ Regional Table
Nestled right on Water Street, with the lake but a stone’s throw away, RauDZ Regional Table is the perfect date-night spot. Reclaimed heartwood pine tables, photographic artwork adorning the walls, and 100% local wine offerings work together to create the perfect Valentine’s Day in Kelowna experience.
Share a double chocolate mashed potato almond brioche with almond milk cremeaux, warm chocolate sauce, brittle cocoa tuile, and raspberry sorbet. And don’t forget to try a gin and tonic with RauDZ Creative Concepts’ farm-to-flask gin, The Whole Truth.
West Coast Grill + Oyster Bar
Right off of Harvey Avenue on Abbott Street, you’ll find West Coast Grill + Oyster Bar, featuring beachy, relaxing, and upbeat décor. The extensive food menu boasts Ocean Wise sensibilities, gluten-sensitive choices, and vegetarian options. The pacific fish fritters and/or calamari are perfect for sharing between a couple.
Dine on Thursday for their “Two can dine for $45” special. This includes your choice of four chef-inspired entrees, a salad each, and a shared dessert. Signature drinks include a rich and spicy WCG Caesar and a fresh, fruity gin-based Pimm’s Cup.
Sure, Valentine’s Day can be corny and corporate. But when you focus on time spent together–over good food, no less!–it can be something really special. Take this Valentine’s Day to tell your special someone all the things you love about them over a romantic dinner and drinks.
