Dropped in for a business lunch when passing through town. Absolutely the best risotto i've had in a long time. Nice wine selection and solid service. Not a big place but if you want a quite restaurant with great food, try it out. I'll definitely be back when i'm in Bowmanville next time.

My family has GF issues, and this restaurant is very accommodating in this department. The food is excellent. The chef is very proud to show you his kitchen and the staff is very gracious.

My family has been coming here since they first bought out Silk's on King St. Loved it then and still love it now. Some dishes have the option of coming mild, medium, hot. I recommend going less rather than more, unless you can handle it. I was surprised by how hot the hot was. The last two times I've had... More

We just recently moved to area and we're looking for a nice restaurant for a Birthday dinner. Chanterelle Bistro was recommended by several people. A very good choice! Ordered beef tenderloin, was cooked exactly how I like it (does not happen often as I like medium well), lots,of vegetables and very different, ie white beets and purple carrots! Ambience was...

Chanterelle is a little gem in Bowmanville. It's our favourite restaurant in the area. The sea bass is delicious, and the rack of lamb is one of the best I have had at any restaurant in the GTA. The menu would benefit from some variation, but I doubt you could find comparable food in Durham at the same price point.

We walked in on a rainy night with no reservation, not dressed well because we started out looking for a different place that was more casual. No problem, gave us a nice table front of house. Just the right amount of wait service attention - timely, available, without hovering. We shared the rocket salad, and goat cheese tart starters. Is... More

My husband and I went for an early dinner before a rock concert last night. The service was exceptional and the food was divine! I had the Mushroom Risotto, that I couldn't stop eating, and my husband had the Beef Tenderloin. The Tenderloin was cooked to perfection and the Potatoes Ana was amazing! The Risotto was hot and bursting with... More

My wife and I went here for dinner for the first time based on reviews. I do not know where other people who have reviewed this restaurant have eaten but i would not classify this as 'fine dining'. The service was average, certainly nothing special, and not anywhere near the standard i would classify as fine dining. The restaurant itself... More

If you want a delightful meal - French fusion style - with superb service and lovely ambience, slip off Highway 401 and proceed to downtown Bowmanville. Marita Aguete and Derek Leung, owners of Chanterelle Bistro, are passionate about food and skilled at presenting dishes filled with flavour. Lovely appetizers. Terrific lamb shank. Excellent vegetarian pasta (not on the menu but... More

Been wanting to try this for some time. Food was fantastic. Excellent escargot. Great lamb shank. Very good gnocchi. And service was excellent. Great experience.
