Osoyoos is known for its beautiful lake, fantastic wine and plentiful water activities, but our little desert community in BC’s Okanagan Valley is also home to some incredible dining.
With wintery weather having taken over outside and February — the month of love — fast approaching, it feels like the perfect time of year to take a special someone on a romantic date.
Here are five places to consider, located right in the heart of downtown Osoyoos, for the next time you are planning a night out for two.
Convivia Bistro brings French and Italian cuisine to downtown Osoyoos. Open for dinner every day except Sunday throughout the winter, Convivia has a variety of tasty dishes to satisfy any craving, while also providing a charming, low-lit atmosphere to set the mood on date night. Regarding food, if you’re craving hearty pastas, flavourful pizzas, or a taste of Quebec with heavenly poutine, Convivia is the place for you. Choose one of their scrumptious desserts, relax with a rich espresso after the meal, or of course, sample one of the many wines available to you.
The Campo Marina Café & Restaurant opened in 1994, and for over twenty years has been synonymous with outstanding Italian cuisine in Osoyoos. With recipes passed down from mother to son, the head chef and owner create delicious meals that keep locals and visitors coming back for more. Campo Marina matches great food with incredible service and a pleasant atmosphere, making it one to add to your list.
**Note** Campo Marina is currently closed for the season but will be reopening on February 8, 2023, just in time for Valentine’s Day if you are thinking ahead 😉
