One of South Edmonton's Best Restaurants and Bistro.The Continental Treat Restaurant is a south Edmonton family affair, as two generations of the Borówka Family work together to bring their romantic turn of the century dining vision to life. Proud to celebrate the restaurant's 44th anniversary this year, owners Ryszard and Helena Borówka and their son Sylvester Borówka oversee the entire operation of what has become one of the best spots on Edmonton’s dining scene. Our Executive Chef Elizabeth Palmowski and her team are constantly working to innovate the menu, while keeping the distinctive, traditional flavouring of our most popular European dishes.
Being the best European restaurant in Edmonton, Continental Treat’s hosts will welcome you gracefully on any occasion – anniversaries, birthdays, or even weddings! The ambiance is one of pure charm, combined with an air of luxury and elegance. During the day classical music selection wafts in the air, allowing you to take your time and enjoy the journey. At night time we switch to light jazz to slow down the pace and take delight in the wonderful atmosphere even more. Our friendly staff members are happy to tend to your every need.
