Amazing!

I've been here several times and will return again and again. The menu is well thought out and the food exceptionally delicious. The service is excellent with Mom and daughters waiting on tables when it is busy while Dad prepares each dish to perfection. I've had pasta, Osso Bucco, lamb shank and salmon, and more. If you want to have... More

Very good bistro in downtown Bowmanville. No need to drive far for an excellent food experience. Derek and Marita have much passion for their work. Their catering is also excellent.

Selected this restaurant for my husband's birthday celebration after reviewing all the recent comments. The Beringer white zinfindel complimented my husband's melt in your mouth lamb shank as well my juicy chicken in red wine entree. The Squash soup made with a touch of maple syrup was delicious and a great start. Even the crusty bigette bread was served with... More

We've been coming to Chanterelle for years, even at their prior location. We love it. The food is delicious, wine list is good and the owners are so nice. Family night, or date night, we are never disappointed. Have you considered a little outdoor seating area? That would be nice and very French.

good food, good service, fair prices, small town casual fine dining at it's best. The menu is varied and the wine list wide reaching.

I have not been to this restaurant but read Jeff C's review. He claimed that this restaurant is "fine dining"; the restaurant is actually a bistro as stated in the name. Jeff should know the difference before making a sound judgement. Let's face it...it's number 1 at the moment. I will try this bistro and give a fair rating and... More

My friend and I enjoyed a lovely lunch here. We were greeted immediately and escorted to our seats. I like how we and other guests were all seated away from each other so that we could enjoy some privacy. Service was wonderful. Friendly and knowledgeable. I ordered the coq au vin. Very juicy and tender and it was served with... More

Chanterelle is by far my most favourite restaurant in this part of Ontario. This French bistro has the best food of anywhere. It is beautifully prepared and exquisitely presented. The restaurant is immaculate with tablecloths and flowers to make for a lovely presentation. Above all, the food is so delicious. I have lamb shanks frequently which come with a large... More

We had five in our party for a recent Friday evening celebration. Service was attentive and we enjoyed a chat with the chef/owner who clearly has a passion for fine food. Smoked salmon, crab cakes and rocket salad were all great appetizers. The mains were super too, especially the Grouper for just $24. The wine list is extensive with a... More
