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.

    Strictly speaking for myself, I think my server Diana who needs more training. Firstly without introducing us the daily special. Worse I order a bowl of Your restaurant signature soup “Flaczki” in order to save time. I asked Diana to gave them an spare plate , bowl or cup for the couple to share when I ordered the soup. Diana spent more than 10 minutes to stress her opinion it’s impossible to share the soup. She further suggested it’s her opinion to order two cups. She is not customer oriented....

    I had the dill pickle soup and the liver/sausage dish and my wife had the soup and pork schnitzel. Both our meals were perfect. Great taste, nicely plated and served hot. The dill pickle soup is worth the trip alone. Service was friendly and professional. Great beer list. The English stout “Imperial Russia” is a very good beer.

    Have been to this restaurant several times and always have had a positive experience. Our service was very slow; bordering on neglectful. The restaurant was busy, but that has always been my experience. Everyone enjoyed the food, although I found mine to be very salty (chicken stroganoff). Sometimes places have an 'off' night.

    Every thing was awesome. We had gone there as the restaurant came up when I googled gluten free breakfast and I was disappointed at first that they didn’t offer breakfast. We which our minds to a lunch meal and the food and service was fantastic. 💯 would go back and highly recommend.

    It was awesome as the service and food was excellent. Nice dining experience. Linen table cloths and very pleasing. If I was to mention anything I would suggest using cloth napkins. Just felt weird as it felt upscale and the paper napkins were out of place. Thanks again and we will be back. Lots of the menu to try and need to try the schnitzel.

    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!
