We went to Continental Treat a few months ago and while it was a decent meal, it wasn't spectacular. The food was kind of plain and extremely fattening (everything was fried and with gravy). And expensive, including both the menu and the wine list! Won't be going back there again. There are MANY better restaurants in Edmonton to go to for a great meal.

Thank you for your feedback. We specialize in traditional European food and realize that sometimes that can be very heavy for some people. Also dealing with European food, we use nothing but the freshest ingredients which does mean more expensive than some places.

We welcome you to come back and try us again and, hopefully, experience all that Continental Treat has to offer.

Kind regards,
Sylvester

You won't go away hungry from this popular Whyte Ave. eatery. I had the Red Barszcz soup, the Chicken Stroganoff with kopytka (24), and Apple Strudel (10). The entrée was quite a plateful, and a bit heavy. But everything was good. Ditto the atmosphere and service.

The food was delicious; very flavourful with great presentation and taste. The vegetables were perfectly cooked - still crisp with bright colours and the soups are very imaginative and good. I tried the Pickle Soup on a lark and ended up loving it!

We were invited by our friends and enjoyed both food drinks and service. The cucumber soup was great and we had nice white wine too. Our waitress was very nice and friendly. I like the decoration and atmosphere too. Good parking facilities. I would recommend this Restaurant and would return again.
