About Le Gavroche

Le-Gav-Fireplace-JPEG1

Le Gavroche is one of Vancouver’s longest standing fine-dining establishments, offering classical French cuisine in a relaxed and intimate atmosphere.

Opened in 1978, the setting of Le Gavroche has charmed Vancouverites and travelers alike and has garnered international attention as one of Vancouver’s most romantic dinner settings. The gently refurbished Victorian house (circa 1910’s) features views of the Coastal Mountains and Coal Harbour from the upstairs terrace, a cozy fireplace for cold winter evenings and a private reception room that can accommodate up to 28 guests.

Now owned by Manuel Ferreira, Le Gavroche continues the traditions it began in 1978: French cuisine executed perfectly. Adopting classic philosophies of utilizing the freshest of local ingredients combined with imported products to complete classical recipes, Ferreira goes back to his European roots and memories from a childhood growing up in Portugal and then France.

Ferreira also brings to Le Gavroche a passion for fine wines. The cellar boasts an inventory of over 35,000 bottles from around the world, with a distinct focus on the regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy. Le Gavroche offers wine selections to meet all palates and budget requirements, from a wide range of half-bottle listings to cellar selections of vintage labels. Recognized in Wine Spectator for eight years, Le Gavroche is a well-known Vancouver jewel for exclusive listings and Ferreira’s expert wine pairings.

About Miradoro

Miradoro Restaurant is British Columbia’s premiere winery restaurant. A joint venture between Tinhorn Creek and restaurateur Manuel Ferreira (of Vancouver’s famed Le Gavroche), Miradoro is a destination to truly experience the best of B.C.’s wine country. Perched on the picturesque Tinhorn Creek estate, on the famed Golden Mile, Miradoro (which roughly translates to “Golden View” in Iberian) offers sweeping views of the scenic South Okanagan Valley and features Mediterranean-influenced cuisine that showcases the best local ingredients the region has to offer.

Executive Chef Jeff Van Geest, works closely with local farmers and producers to make Miradoro a restaurant that pays homage the bounty of the Okanagan. The menu draws inspiration from countries like Spain, Portugal and Italy – cuisines designed to pair perfectly with wine. The food is local, rustic, simple, straightforward and seasonal; and reflects Chef Van Geest’s belief that there’s nothing better than simply, but well-prepared ingredients from our local fields, forests and ocean.

Miradoro’s wine list, developed by General Manager and Sommelier Justin McAuliffe, showcases the award-winning wines of Tinhorn Creek, with both current and rare library releases available. The list also includes a hand-picked selection of standout wines from other wineries across B.C.

The 4,000 square foot restaurant features 65 seats indoors and 65 seats outdoors on a wrap-around deck. Ample use of natural woods and cork creates a room that is simple, yet elegant, and lets the food, wine and view be the stars of the show. Two full walls of glass ensure that every seat in the house can experience Miradoro’s panoramic view of the South Okanagan Valley, and an open-concept kitchen with a Wood Stone open-hearth oven as its centerpiece gives guests a great view of the action in the kitchen as well.

The design, construction and operation of Miradoro all reflect Tinhorn Creek’s commitment to sustainability. For example, the large overhanging roof reduces energy consumption by blocking the sun on hot summer days, while still letting in ample natural light. Before breaking ground, Tinhorn Creek worked with The Land Conservancy to identify native plant species to be replanted after construction, minimizing the impact to the natural habitats surrounding the restaurant. And in the restaurant, water is filtered and carbonated on-site to eliminate the shipping of bottled water and all biodegradable kitchen waste is composted for use in Tinhorn Creek’s vineyards.

Miradoro is open for lunch (11:30 am to 3 pm), afternoon tapas (3 pm to 5:30 pm) and dinner (5:30 pm to 9 pm) seven days a week. Miradoro is open ten months a year – closing in January and February.
