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.”

If you want Gluten free this is the place but as much as I LOVE this restaurant and have been going there for years the gluten free Tiramisu is awful. Inedible. Some things cannot be made gluten free without ruining them. Sorry Helena and Sylvester. The rest of our meal was wonderful but the Tiramisu...

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 service by Inna was top notch. She was friendly, attentive, polite, thorough and efficient. The Father’s Day Hungarian goulash dinner was delicious. Simply excellent. We’ll be back!

Continental Treat Nevers fails us. Wonderful food served by excellent staff. Renovations are lovely and we actually have grown to appreciate the plexiglass between the tables. Over the years most restaurants have become overcrowded, noisy, and lacking any privacy. Here we can have conversations without yelling over the chatter around us. Even when covid is a bad memory we hope the spacing and plexiglass stay. Looking forward to our next visit.

We were celebrating my wife’s 2nd Covid Birthday and we always loved Continental Treat. We hadn’t been in a long while. I can say we weren’t disappointed. The Pickle Soup is a must try. We both enjoyed our mains - steak tartar and Hungarian goulash. Hopefully we can return soon.

From the greeting, to the meal and ending dinner with a creme de mint, it is always for us an unforgettable experience. The food is always cook to perfection, the waitress is by far the nicest person in this business and despite dealing with the COVID pandemic, the Continental Fine Bistro remain our number one restaurant in Edmonton. Can't wait to our next visit to the City and pit stop at your restaurant. A+++++

We each tried something different from our usual choice. (We come here often. He has the Pork Schnitzel. I have either the herring sandwich or the rainbow trout). This time we changed it up. He had the sauerkraut and mushroom stuffed pyroghy with mushroom sauce. (He ate all 8 - didn’t even offer me a bite!). I had the pork schnitzel. It was fabulous. Congratulations to Sylvester and his team. Continental Treat remains our favourite restaurant.

As someone with Celiac disease it is just the automatic go to for me and my whole family. Every time I go i just want to try everything on the menu, but I always fall back to the french onion soup. Service this past experience was good, waitress seemed a little unsure and hesitant however she was super friendly and when I had a question if she didn't know, she made a point to find out. This is a must try restaurant for EVERYONE.

Edmonton restaurants with delicious duck dishes

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!
