Perfectly Pleasing Penticton Restaurants

Coffee Shops To Casual To Fine Dining

Penticton restaurants are diverse and delicious. For a small city of 33,000 people, the city offers up some great places to eat.

The best restaurants in Penticton aren't necessarily the most expensive, or the most well known either. Depending on what you're looking for, dining in Penticton can be as casual as a burger by the beach, or as fancy as a five course meal by a professional chef or at a local winery. Variety is the key. :-)

You can choose from trendy locally owned restaurants, casual and lakeside dining, cozy cafes, downtown coffee shops and deli's, BBQ, pizza, seafood and pasta eateries, which are family and kid friendly.

Summer is a great time for dining outdoors. And many a restaurant in Penticton has an outside patio where you can enjoy a nice relaxing meal, and at some you also enjoy views of the city, the lake and Okanagan Valley.

Or you can grab a delicious sandwich from a great local deli and head up the road to the viewpoint on Munson Mountain and enjoy some really beautiful views of the city and the Valley.

These are some of our personal favorites and also some recommended by locals...
