Love this restaurant so much, that we're going with friends, two weeks in a row. I am vegan and I got the most amazing meal. Mushroom risotto with veggies and a very good salad. They also had on hand, coconut ice cream! They start you all off with bread and hummus. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the service was very... More

We really enjoy that we can get Fine Dining without leaving Bowmanville. We have been going to Chanterelle Bistro for years and never disappointed the service, staff and meal are always great. We have tried many items on the menu but I usually order the Grilled Veal.

We had a good meal but waited a long time for the waitress to take a drink order. For me a real problem as the restaurant was not crowded. Once she finally came things moved moderately well.

My husband and I went to Chanterelle for dinner to celebrate; we sat in the alcove just at the front door, which only fits a table for two. This was our fifth visit to the restaurant and both the service and food was terrific, as usual. I can never say no to the lamb shank, and I am always happy... More

This is a classier type of restaurant. Food prepared by a chef rather than a cook. Good service, lovely ambiance, quiet elegance. We had fresh bread served with fresh hummus it was delicious. All the meals we had were fresh made to order and tasted good.

good food, consistent every time you go. We've been going for years, even when the restaurant was down on King St in Bowmanville.

I had the Veal Tenderloin and he had the rib-eye Steak both entrees were cooked to perfection, We also shared Mussels and crab cakes appetizers they were also very good although the mussels were messy so be ready with your napkin. The service was also very good... More

We enjoyed a delicious dinner at this Bistro. We were seated at Table No. 1 which is located by the front window. No other patrons seated beside us so very private. The service was excellent. Our server knew exactly when to approach us whilst dining. Prices are to be expected for a fine dining experience. The outside of the restaurant... More
