Wow - everything was first class

Don't be fooled by the exterior, inside Chanterelle is all first class. Derek's sea bass and lamb are both outstanding, the service is great and there's a broad, interesting and reasonably priced wine list. For catering in Newcastle / Bowmanville or for eating at the restaurant, this is a great... read more

Second visit in two weeks!! A nice little window seat for two, private and quaint. Delicious bread with homemade hummus to start followed by Romaine salad with creamy garlic dressing. My main both times was the Coq Au Vin, chicken braised in red wine sauce with bacon, mushrooms and onions (fabulous)! Creme brûlée for dessert!! Even with a bottle of... More

We went here for a family birthday dinner! The food was awesome and the prices were very reasonable. From Sea Bass, to Veal Tenderloin, to Duck Supreme and Sirloin Steak....everyone loved their meal. The staff were very accommodating when one of our party was able to come after we had been served. Their wine list was very extensive for such... More

We had dinner at this Bistro last week and were so surprised this gem is in Durham Region. No more long drives into the city and traffic to experience fine food! We had the escargots, sea bass and crème Brulee and each was absolutely fabulous. Even the vegetables that accompanied the main course were somehow cooked like no other. The... More

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.
