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.

    This was my first time eating at this restaurant and I only have good things to say about it. Booking a reservation was easy, there is parking right out back that I didn't even know about, every dish was unbelievably delicious - you would never know that the garlic bread is gluten free - and the staff even went the extra mile to bring my partner a free piece of cake for their Birthday. Great service, great food, would 100% recommend this place to others. I will definitely be coming back!

    As we have experienced in the past the food and service was outstanding, with the exception of one minor problem and also being disappointed that they have discontinued their Vegetarian Menu. With the elimination of the Vegetarian Menu my partners selection of suitable dishes is now basically restricted to one entre. She did however find that entre, FUNGHI & KOPYTKA, to be outstanding. We opted to share a portion of Apple Strudel for dessert and found it to be very dry. Our attentive server immediately corrected the issue by offering us a complementary replacement. When you dine at Continental Treat I recommend the ESCARGOT A LA BOURGUIGNONE as they are the absolute best Escargot I have tasted anywhere.

    My friend had commented that she had never been to Continental Treat after I told her I bought a Groupon to go. She went online and purchased one as well and we made plans to try it. There we were told about a policy that was not clear when purchasing a Groupon for $9 that would discount the food by $20. Only one coupon per table! I get that they don't want a large table of people all using the coupon, but this wasn't like that, it was just a friend and I would have told my friend not to buy one had I known. Now I am stuck with my coupon because the friend was allowed to use hers and I wasn't. Very annoyed! They should put this information on the front page in bold letters!

    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!
