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

While I wouldn't say I had a bad meal I would say I had an expensive average meal. My husband, myself, daughter and son went. Menu looked great and sounded so good I was unsure what to order. Starters included shrimp bisque which was good, Buffalo mozzarella tomato confit salad which looked nice on arrival but was textually challenged as... More

On business and walked in alone. Quaint decor and nice vibe. Service was excellent, and the food was brilliant. Well done Chanterelle Bistro. Cant wait to return with my wife.

We had a 50th wedding anniversary party with 15 people and they let us have the front room reserved. They made one long table down the middle. I brought my 39" flat screen t.v. and my laptop and they accommodated me setting it up to play a few special videos on. The owners advised we could have a set 3... More
