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... read 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

This is our third year having a three course meal at Chanterelles on Valentine's Day. Always a treat for us! The kitchen is aware of my husband's garlic allergy and will substitute if needed. Lots of options to choose from - lobster avocado salad, beef tenderloin and lobster tail and a dessert tray to share is what we enjoyed this... More

I had put off going to this restaurant because I figured it would be too expensive but after visiting several other nearby restaurants, I figured we ought to give it a try. Hubby ordered beer and I had a glass of zinfandel. We started with a rocket salad for me and my husband had escargot. Fantastic! Waiting for the entrees... More

I write from the perspective of a diner with Celiac who requires a strict gluten free menu. This little gem is exceptional on any level, but it's how an establishment handles a guest with special need that's the real test. Spoiler alert, this is my new favourite spot for a special night out. It’s privately owned, situated in Bowmanville, Ontario.... More

I took a friend for a belated birthday here last night. What a lovely surprise. The service was excellent. The wine list is very impressive! The food was done to perfection and served piping hot! My friend had the beef tenderloin with scalloped potatoes and seasonal veg and I have the surf and turf. So delicious! And of course we... More
