2 Bear Fish Root Berry 1

The Bear, The Fish, The Root & the Berry

Fine Dining


This is a must-try culinary experience when visiting Osoyoos, utilizing seasonal ingredients to create modern vineyard cuisine, inspired by the restaurant's Indigenous roots.

The Syilx People of the Okanagan Nation approach to food is based on the creation stories of their culture. The name “The Bear, The Fish, The Root & The Berry,” is based on the story of the Four Food Chiefs - a chaptik story passed down through generations of the First Nations people of the Okanagan.

The Four Food Chiefs are central to the inspiration of the dishes and include: Skimxist Black Bear (chief of animals, representing self-sacrifice, leadership, giving), Ntytikxw Chinook Salmon (water creatures, perseverance, hard work), Speetlum Bitterroot (plants below the ground, relationships to the land) and Seeya Saskatoon Berry (plants above the ground, growth, strength, community).

About British Columbia

In Canada’s westernmost province, fresh local bounty, talented chefs, and a melting pot of cultures combine to make British Columbia a top culinary destination. It’s a rich tapestry supported by farmers, growers, and producers whose ingredients shape menus in communities along the Pacific Ocean, in the Rocky Mountains, and everywhere in between.

Here, Indigenous cultures who have been nurturing the land for millennia showcase traditional offerings with a modern twist. Other multicultural influences inspire chefs and artisan food producers to blend local ingredients with global flavours. Dishes also vary widely, depending on place, creating distinctive regional dining scenes—from wild salmon sushi in Tofino to down-home guest ranch cooking in the Cariboo to delicate dim sum in Richmond. 

Victoria, the province’s capital, boasts more restaurants per capita than almost anywhere else in Canada, while Vancouver, BC’s most populous city, was recently recognized with several MICHELIN Stars, further elevating the city’s reputation as an international dining destination. Wine touring, spirits, and local beer are hugely popular here, too, in the Fraser Valley near Vancouver, on Vancouver Island, and especially along the Okanagan Valley lakeside, where seasonal pours provide the perfect finish to a day of hiking, biking, and swimming.
