If you want a surprise in Dining, go to Chanterelle Bistro - an amazing continental cuisine restaurant that creates delicious food at a very reasonable price.  It is on the main street (King St.) in the historic part of Bowmanville.  Right next door to Chanterelle, is Herb N Essence - a very small daytime restaurant only - great gourmet take-out-perfect for your B&B room when you do not want to spend the time or money on a good restaurant (buy your own bottle of wine at the A&P or the LCBO - both in Bowmanville). 

If you love the view and sounds of the lake, go to Bobby C's Restaurant at Darlington Marina. Just go south on Liberty St. and turn left on Lake Rd. and follow the signs.  They have a very large outdoor patio overlooking the boats and Lake Ontario.  Great fish and seafood entrees.
