Conviva Bistro Cuisine comes up in a Google search as a top restaurant is Osoyoos. We are not sure how that happen, but Conviva is actually the worst place to eat in Osoyoos. Let me explain why we have such a strong opinion.
We phoned a day in advance and made a dinner reservation. When we arrived exactly on time, the lady with a bleached mop on her head checked the reservation book, found the reservation and told us to seat down in the waiting area because they don't have available tables. We looked at one another questioning what kind of hospitality is that? While waiting for 20 min we had a thought to leave, but unfortunately made a poor decision to stay. After 20-25 minutes waiting in a lobby, we were asked if we would like to purchase a drink at the bar while we are waiting for our pre-booked table. We nodded and were allowed to move onto a terrace to a table. It was announced: "This is somebody else's table, but you have a drink or two while waiting for your table." At that point I really wanted to leave, but stayed for the company. We had our drinks ordered: house wines. After we finished our wine we were asked if we wanted to order more, we declined and were transferred to "our" table. "Our" table was a table close to the fridge, outdoor grill and serving table. What a catch! After we ordered food we waited for another hour, as they managed to burn pizza twice.
Eventually the order arrived: hard as a rock Goat cheese and Duck shavings pizza, Pan seared scallops with wild tiger prawns. Rock hard pizza was horrible, literally horrible. Scallop dish was eatable: 3 scallops and 2 tiny prawns on a bed of 3 table spoons risotto.
I wish people wrote honest reviews about their experience with Conviva, we would not wasted 2 hours of our time and $127. By the time we left Conviva still hungry and very disappointed, most sit-down restaurants were already closed. So, the final verdict-hopefully they will close down soon enough.
