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.

    The Staff was a bit long in getting to our table but not overly so, the food however was perfection. My lamb was perfectly done and the staff did exceptionally well accommodating our food allergies. All in all it was a five star experience.

    This is the first time we've been to your restaurant. I had been meaning to go for years, but it just never happened. We're so happy we did as it was a great experience. The service was excellent, the food was SO amazing. I couldn't believe how incredible the gluten free perogies were. I will be thinking about them until the next time I come to your restaurant! We're also looking forward to eating the gluten free bread that we purchased. The wine was exceptional and it was an all around amazing experience!

    The food was amazing as was the service. The only drawback was that the tiramisu had run out, which really isn't a big surprise. The Lamb and veal were unforgettable.

    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.
