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.

    I have been going to this restaurant for years. The food is always great and service is always good though new faces all the time.

    Such a treat to be able to chose anything on the menu. I have Celiac Disease & it was so nice to be an "ordinary" person for a change. Ate there with my parents & husband before an event at the Jubilee Auditorium so let them know we had a deadline & they were very accommodating and we were easily done on time. Also like that there is parking behind the restaurant for their patrons. Absolutely delicious food & will definitely eat there again!

    We were entertaining international clients from the Caribbean so we were looking for a culinary experience different from what you would find in that region. The atmosphere was casual and the food was delicious! Afterwards we strolled Whyte Ave to help digest our fantastic meal. Continental Treat is the perfect place for a fun and unique business dinner.

    Our server needed reminding about drinks before dinner for some of our party and also neglected to ask all about coffee after. The food which is normally very good was a little off. The bread/ toast was not very good. I found the spaetzle luke warm and the schnitzel dry. Even the dill pickle soup was not as good as I remembered. I am only speaking for myself but am wondering if Saturday night with drunks stumbling into the window beside our table is not the best time to come.

    Excellent food and service. We were very surprised at how fast our food arrived, and yet was plated impeccably—the Dutch herrings in particular were a real visual, flavour, and texture treat. This was our first visit, and we will certainly return with family and for special occasions in the future.

    Our server, Hayley, was very knowledgeable, gracious, personable, and professional. She answered a couple of questions we had about particular menu items, and she was very helpful. Our food was excellent -- beautifully plated, and the flavours and aromas were inviting, and the food was very satisfying, both taste and texture. Congratulations to the chef, and to management for a wonderful evening. (We were celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary, and we were delighted to have our special dinner at Continental Treat.)

    As always, a treat to dine at Continental Treat. The waiter who has been there forever is professional but friendly and helpful yet never in the way. It was a busy evening but no one rushed us. When we arrived, the greeter said 'we have a lovely table for you" and indeed it was. That wonderful window view. It was special evening and we thank you for doing your part.

    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!
