Working at PLUVIO

​​We aim to charm and delight our guests, and each other, through kindness, generosity, creativity and fun.

Our restaurant is a small, intimate space with an open kitchen, serving exceptional quality food, outstanding wines and creative cocktails in a fun and unique manner. Our four boutique hotel rooms are located behind the restaurant, beside our rooftop kitchen garden, which allows us to provide our guests with a complete hospitality experience. Opened in April 2019, our contemporary West Coast fine dining restaurant was awarded 4th Best New Restaurant in Canada by Air Canada’s enRoute Magazine and owners Warren + Lily were recently chosen as some of Canada’s 2020 ‘Foodies of the Year’ by Western Living.

During the covid-19 pandemic we have taken every step to keep our team, our community and our guests safe. In the restaurant, we offer a three or five course dinner menu to a limited number of guests, ensuring physical distancing is in place between tables and putting our open kitchen and bar behind plexiglass. Our rooms are perfectly set up for a safe and comfortable guest experience which has been enhanced by very thorough cleaning protocols.

We work with an exceptional group of passionate and driven hospitality professionals who work closely as a team to support each other and our guests. We work hard to ensure our team stay happy and healthy. We make sure that Pluvio is a positive workplace with opportunities for growth and development and that our team have a good work - life balance. We offer competitive wages with extended health and dental benefits, a daily family meal and restaurant and room discounts.
