 Special Communal Table Dinners

Three communal dinners on Thursdays-March 29th, April 26th and May 31st. $100.00+ incl.. wine.

A seven course extravaganza focused on local farms with wine pairings included. This is sure to be a good night of conversation, local food and wine.

  • Oliver: Miradoro at Tinhorn Creek

Tuesdays at 6:30pm until the end of May. $25.00

The restaurant is dramatically rearranged to seat a communal table of either twenty-five or fifty. A seat at this Tuesday dinner table will find you rubbing shoulders with locals and visitors who have a love of food and wine.  3-4 course special seasonal menu.

Starting May 20th-Sundays Alfresco Dining & June 28th-Thursdays Winemakers Alfresco starting at $99.00+ incl. wine.

2012 line-up for their popular communal outdoor Alfresco dinners at the beautiful God’s Mountain Estate has been announced.  Book early as these sell out every year.

Every night- from the menu

And you can’t mention communal table dining with mentioning RauDZ where every night the twenty-one foot long reclaimed heartwood pine table made without nails or screws in the centre of the restaurant encourages guests to sit back, relax and engage with their neighbors.
