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.

    A lovely night out to celebrate 3 graduations with a gluten-free member. Ambience was fantastic, quiet enough to talk, and food was delicious. Not an everyday spot, but worth it for a treat! Everything was gluten-free, but a pity no Black Forest cake available.

    The food and decor spark fine memories of Berghoff’s in Chicago (long gone, I believe). But with a far more attentive wait staff. Disappointed with the bread; everything else was superb. Our waiter, who both critiqued and recommended the spaetzle, was a hoot.

    Very impressed with our first visit. Service was excellent, and food was as well. It was nice to be served soup that was hot just like warm. Bit disappointed in the apple strudel we had for dessert as it was not warm and quite tough. Still overall a fantastic experience

    We received great service from Hayley and the food was wonderful! We love our meals and soups were served steamy hot not lukewarm. Love their pickle soup schnitzels!! Too bad there was a very loud and noisy table that evening which make it rather disruptive at times.

    The waiter needs major training in customer service. He interrupted our conversation every time he approached the table without ever giving us 2 seconds to acknowledge his presence and pay attention to him. He never smiled and he acted more like a machine than a human. Very disappointing... we liked coming there, but... and it was my dad’s birthday:-(. So sad....

    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!
