Most restaurants in Osoyoos are closed on a Sunday, however we found Convivia on the website with fairly good reviews.

The decor is lovely and the service was excellent. The hostess seemed little confused when we arrived although there were plenty of tables available and waited a good 10 minutes to be seated. We chose the pizza with goat cheese and honey with a side salad. The salad was small and dull looking and had obviously had the dressing on hours beforehand as it was soggy. Cost $6 The pizza's arrived very fast which is unusual. The crust was very white and undercooked with a small amount of goat cheese and a couple of slices of red pepper. It tasted a little sweet so assumed this was the honey. Cost $18.50 each. We had two glasses of white wine recommended by the server. Cost $9 per glass.

Disappointed .

While the ambiance was lovely and food unique and tasty for Osoyoos, the service was utterly dreadful. We made a reservation for two, arrived a little early, and sat for 25 minutes before managing to flag someone down to ask who would be taking care of us. Had to flag someone down again to order, then ask about our still undelivered wine when our appetizer finally arrived, had to ask where the mains were, and even flag someone to order dessert and request more water. We have both been servers in our university days and know it's hard work when it's busy, but this place had no organization; servers seemed to be running all over the place, like no one had a section. Unfortunately, doubt we will ever go back despite the nice menu and care in food prep. Kudos to the kitchen staff but thumbs down to the management and wait staff.

My husband and I spent 2 nights in Osoyoos and ate here both nights for dinner. The first night we were blown away by the service and the food so decided to eat here again. Again it exceeded our expectations. Would definitely recommend.

Wandered off the main drag in Osoyoos and found this little gem. Had amazing service and food. Lovely well dressed French waiter who made our visit special. Had Calamari which came with this amazing dip - I used the bread to eat every last drop of the dip. Had cannelloni and lasagna. Portion sizes were perfect for us - not too big. Had creme caramel and stuffed pear for dessert. The stuffed pear was a wow. Would return in a heart beat! Hands down best place to eat in Osoyoos. We were in Osoyoos for 4 days and tried a number of eating spots.
