This is our all time favorite place to go for amazing dining. Ed is a wonderful owner/host who welcomes you into his restaurant. The atmosphere melts the stress of daily life away in an instant. The menu is simple with fresh ingredients and choices for everyone. The aroma, taste and presentation of the food is remarkable. We have dined in many restaurants all over the world (especially Paris) and we have to say that this is the best! Nicholas (Executive Chef) knows how to blend the various flavours and textures to create scrumptious dishes. The restaurant is small so reservations are recommended.
Bistro Provence is a wonderful place to hold meduim size events. There is a room that holds 35 + people for any special occasions. We have held 2 birthday parites and we found that Ed & Nicholas worked with us to tailor the menu to our requirements. Both events were wonderful! Do take the drive out to Okotoks to dine at a wonderful place!

What a lovely surprise, this place is a real gem. Bravo to the Chef. You won't be disappointed. From the minute you walk in, you know your in for a treat. If you are looking for great food and friendly staff you have found it here. Went in for lunch and have already picked out what I will be having for dinner on my next visit (which will be soon). Thanks for a wonderful meal and a great experience.

Having frequented L'Petite Table for serval years In Okotoks, I was greatly disappointed when it closed down. But to my surprise and delight, the restaurant re-opend under new ownership and kept it's French cuisine. There is now a new owner who has taken the reigns and the restaurant is once again thriving! I went outone evening with 8 close friends to experience the new menu and see what the chef had in store for us. The experience was absoutely delighful, the food was phenomenal and the service could not be better! It is definitely worth the drive out to Okotoks to experience this quaint little restaurant and the wonderful French cuisine that is presented. I can't to return soon.

If you want food that is cooked from scratch with amazing flavours, then try Bistro Provence. We went as a family and really enjoyed the atmosphere and Old Town Okotoks. If you are coming from the city it is a short 15 minute drive from the south end of Calgary. What is nice is that you are getting wonderful french food in an 1880's era converted post office, what a piece of nostalgia! For European tourists who want to feel the Old west, this is a fun restaurant to check out.
