Going Downhill All The Time

Service was good albeit somewhat over attentive (being asked too many times if everything is ok can be just as bad as not checking on customers enough), as usual but, that's where anything good about this place ends. The perogie app was stone cold inside so I sent that back to be nuked. I could... read more

Want a nice little family restaurant to go to in the area. This is it. I love this place the food is plentiful and not overpriced. Run by a Greek family who are always willing to sit and have a conversation with you about your day. They have a small bar and daily specials that are not only great tasting... More

I remember going to Bowmanville Restaurant with my family when I was younger and liking the food. However, that wasn't the case the last time I went and got takeout for myself and a family member. The chicken fingers meal I ordered was bland and overpriced, and the french fries were borderline gross. The service was mediocre, I waited forever... More

Lots of room, you can take large parties if you wish. Seating is great, one side for fast food and breakfast the other for comfortable fine dining

And my breakfast is a Western sandwich, hold the bread and the ham, add mushrooms and spinach, a side greek salad with olive oil and lemon. Delicious and healthy. My friends (and sometimes family) and I go here every Friday morning and each one of them customizes their breakfast. They are very willing to please everyone. The service is excellent... More

I have been to this restaurant many times over the years and it's been getting worse. We were there for breakfast a few times and had to wait quite a while for coffee. Once we got that we had to wait quite a while to place our order. The place wasn't busy either. We sometimes call for take our as... More

Had dinner here on a moments notice while waiting for a tow one frigid night. Options are very limited at the Bowmanville mall so after reviewing the predominantly sushi type menu decided to try this place. I'm not a big sushi fan but thought I could try something else on the menu. My son was with me and we ventured... More

Being new to Bowmanville it as been fun trying the local restaurants and there are plenty. Decided to give Niko's Bowmanville Family Restaurant a go for lunch....waited ages for a server to bring us menus, I was aware of the time because of the TV overhead. Anyway I ordered a BLT toasted on brown with a side of home fries,... More

Visited this restaurant recently while visiting a family member in the nearby hospital. There was 4 adults & 1 child. The place was half busy. The service was not the greatest. Waitress had to be reminded a couple of times for things. When the food arrived it was barely warm. All but one of us had breakfast. Our son had... More
