Getting There

  • Edmonton,

Meet the owner

Traditional old-world charm fills the air at Continental Treat Fine Bistro on Whyte Avenue. Family-run since 1982 by the Borówka family, this welcoming spot consistently provides Edmonton’s diners with high quality traditional European fare and great service. “We really try to give great service,” says Sylvester Borówka, who co-owns Continental Treat Fine Bistro with his parents Ryszard and Helena Borówka. “Through the years we have created what I call loyalists. These are customers who prefer to come to our restaurant over anywhere else and now their children and even their grandchildren are coming in.”

Sylvester says the family has worked hard to build their reputation. They started with a humble seven-table restaurant, but in just five years were able to expand. “I’m proud of our restaurant,” says Sylvester. “We always want our guests to feel welcome and to enjoy their meals.”

    I walked in on a Wednesday night around 9pm...and was the only person wearing jeans. Oops. The place looked high end from the inside and it's located in the heart of Edmonton, The beer list is expansive, The selection was great and included a number of beers I had not come across before.It can undoubtedly compared to sherbook liquor store.

    Best Food In Edmonton That I ever had

    For the appetizer I tried the Chicken Stroganoff stuffed with cheese, it was tasty, but nothing special to it. On the other hand, the Chicken, Shrimp and Rice was amazing.Cooked perfectly so that it does not feel like you are chewing a rubber band. All in all, the food is simply prepared but delicious, the waitstaff is amazing.

    We always enjoy or visits to the restaurant. The amount of roadwork was a bit of a distraction (no fault of Continental Treat, of course), however it never affected the quality of food and service, which was as good as usual.

    I so appreciate that everything there is gluten free unless otherwise noted. And that the individual parts of the meal that contain gluten are also noted. I could make choices and substitutions without having to ask a lot of questions. The food was outstanding! Best meal I've had in a very long time.

    One of us had the special (Chicken cutlet with mashed potatoes and a mushroom sauce) and one had the Hungarian Goulash. Both had the cup of pickle soup and was great and enjoyed the meal. One of us had been there several times and was not disappointed whereas the other person had never been there before but enjoyed their meal thoroughly as well.

    We celebrated our 48th wedding anniversary 29th of August. My husband and I went through several names of restaurants we favour. We wanted our evening to be special, not just another evening out. We chose Continenal Treat as the ambience, food, service has always been above and makes you feel special. On a number of occasions over the past few years we have been with friends for either lunch and or dinner. Never have we been disappointed. It's well worth the expense and the food is excellent. It truly is a treat every time we go. Thank you, Larry and Jan

    Edmonton restaurants with delicious duck dishes

    A Whyte Avenue staple and hotspot, the Continental Treat is an Edmonton favourite. This eastern European restaurant serves the best dill pickle soup in town, not to mention killer schnitzel, filet mignon with various sauces, stroganoff and, of course, slowly roasted duck legs with a pinot noir demi-glace accompanied by kopytka (potato dumplings) and hot red cabbage.

    Gluten-free? Vegetarian? Meat-lover? If you have any of the aforementioned eaters in your dining party, look no further than Continental Fine Treat Bistro. It has one of the most extensive gluten-free menus that I’ve seen. They use many seasonal ingredients and their menu is fairly dynamic. Their dishes have French, German, and Eastern European influences. This place is always a good choice and never a dull moment!

    Influenced by Central and Eastern European cuisines, they serve up cheddar and potato perogies, as well as wild mushroom and sauerkraut perogies. Both are a treat.
