First visit ever and we came here for a special dinner. Birthday/Anniversary. The four of us were seated in an upper area and we all noticed how clean the restaurant was - spotless! Service was very fast and courteous but never overbearing! Appetizers of crab cakes and oysters Rockefeller were both very fresh and very good. Would definitely order both... More

To celebrate the anniversary of our good friends, we decided on Chanterelle Bistro and we were so impressed with the service, food and ambience that I felt it important to review the restaurant on TripAdvisor. We had been advised that there was a wedding that same evening and that we would be seated upstairs. This proved to be a pleasant... More

We went with friends to celebrate both our anniversaries. The restaurant is very elegant looking with crisp white tablecloths. The food was great and the service was very good. We were not rushed, had time to have our wine, then order the food. The menu was varied and the food served with a very nice look to it. The presentation... More

We had recently moved and wanted to find the best restaurant within the closest area. This is it. I found it by searching reviews on TripAdvisor and it had the highest rating. The staff is friendly, and the food is great. We've had the crab cakes and I've gotten the gnocchi and risotto on different occasions. All I would highly... More

We have been there a few times now and the food is always great. We have a friend that is a vegetarian and she said that they have a great variety. The ambiance is very nice and the service is great.

We have frequented Chantrelles many times over the last two years since moving to Durham region and never been disappointed. The food is always delicious and beautifully presented. The ambiance is lovely and the staff are always very helpful & polite. You won't be disappointed .

Have eaten here many times with no diappointment in the quality of the food. It is always very professionally presented and very good. Bowmanville has limited fine dining but this is one of them. My own personal feeling is the ambiance is a little lacking and I feel like I'm sitting in someone's house. Perhaps it's the many small rooms... More

We were here last year and liked the place. Good food, nice ambiance and very good service. The sort of place for an anniversary dinner or a date night. Food was even better this time, and the service was excellent. We will definitely be back and much sooner. As close to fine dining as you will find east of downtown... More
