Lunch

Went for lunch with my wife. Food was excellent and the service was better. The resteraunt wasn't very busy but we arrived after one so the lunch crowr might have already left.

Was walking by with a friend and came across this bistro. Read the menu... The "avocado and prawn" appitizer immediately intrigued us. We decided it would be a good place to stop and have a beverage and a snack. We were greeted nicely.... But then the service went down hill they did not have anything we requested to make a... More

Nice down home restaurant with the taste of French style cuisine. Very Quaint, make sure to make reservations prior to going. great food, great value for the money. Wine selection not the best, but then don't be afraid to try something new.

Like most students, my daughter was due a nice meal when she returned from University....having "lived slim" for a number of months. We received a warm friendly welcome and a true taste of France when we visited. This is a small intimate setting, with a unique menu. Very tasty food. Not cheap....but I believe money for value. Recommended!

Excellent and not pretentious. Glad to see that the Bistro is already rated #1 by Tripadvisor in Okotoks. I have never posted a review before, but I will continue, as YOU the potential customer might appreciate the reassurance, and the owners deserve it. My parents always liked this restaurant, and now that they are in a local nursing home, I... More

Over the past number of years my husband & I have dined here on many occasions - we have never been disappointed. Friends have joined us, both for lunch & for dinner on different occasions, they too have been impressed with both the food & the service. It's a small restaurant, well run & conforming to it's French cuisine roots,... More

My wife and I stopped for a light lunch at this establishment whilst visiting Okotoks for the first time. We were shown to a window seat and chose from the menu mushroom soup and quiches. The waiter (owner?) was attentive and polite and the food was truly delicious - all home made! The atmosphere and decor was very French with... More

Thank you to the owners of Bistro Provence for allowing our 38 Girl Guides to come experience a fancy "High Tea" styled party at your lovely restaurant. It was the perfect place for our "little" group. The old post office from 1882 makes a beautiful, quaint little spot to have a wonderful time. Allowed us to get in some local... More

Wonderful authentic French cuisine. Owner served us and was very attentive. It showed that she was very proud of the restaurant. Her husband is the chef. Would definitely recommend however, the seating area is quite small. Quaint for a small gathering but bit sure if they could accommodate a large group.
