Fresh, Local & Fine Dining.


Established in 2008, Chanterelle Bistro has been dedicated to delivering exceptional food and service to our valued guests. We take pride in sourcing the finest local produce, crafting irresistible homemade desserts, collaborating with local businesses, and offering an extensive selection of gluten-free dishes, ensuring an enjoyable culinary experience for every guest. Whether you’re attending a business meeting, enjoying a romantic dinner, or hosting a family gathering, our passionate team is committed to making every dining experience at Chanterelle unforgettable.

In 2010, we made a significant move from Highway 2 to Division Street, marking the beginning of a new chapter for our restaurant. Our current building traces back to at least the 1960s, that housed two flower shop businesses.

On November 1st, 2021, Becky took up the reins, bringing fresh energy and innovative ideas to Chanterelle. Under her guidance, we continue to uphold our tradition of excellence, ensuring that every dish we serve reflects our commitment to quality.

We invite you to join us and experience the warmth of our hospitality and the incomparable taste of our offerings. We look forward to welcoming you to our table!

Celebrated our daughter's 30th birthday here a week before her wedding. The food and service was fabulous. Also 5 stars to Chantrelles catering as they were the caterers for our daughter's wedding and our guests loved the food.

Food was great, nicely presented and everything was hot.There was 9 of us and three were celebrating their birthday. Places we have been in the past helped us celebrate by bringing us a complementry slice of cake with a candle, but not here. It was a saucer with a candle, we were all shocked but this. After spending more than $800.00 I think three slices of 🎂 cake wouldn't go a miss.

I booked Chanterelle for my moms 60th birthday celebration. They were able to accommodate 30 people, and provide the best service. Everything went smoothly from contacting Becky (owner) to going over the fine details of the set menu for large parties, to arriving at the restaurant and having excellent efficient service. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was exactly what we wanted. Highly recommend Chanterelle for large parties, or a date night and everything in between!

This was our first visit to Chanterelle Bistro! We were so impressed with the friendly greeting by the hostess. We did not have a reservation but we got a table quickly. The table was a bit tight but for not having a reservation we were just happy to get a seat! I would advise to make a reservation if you are concerned about space for seating as some of the tables are close together. The atmosphere is warm, clean and there were a mix of families and couples. Our server was lovely and helped with letting us know about the menu, specials and making a wine selection. We had bread provided at the table and that came with a homemade hummus so delicious. We ordered the crab cakes which came with a corn relish, they were very tasty and had good presentation. For dinner we enjoyed shrimp and scallops and prime rib. Everything was cooked perfectly and arrived hot. We will definitely be back again and appreciate having such a little gem so close to home! Thank you for the great service and food!

Derek, I wanted to thank you and your staff for another outstanding meal from your restaurant. Last week we decided to pre-order from the Valentines Day menu for pick up - since we aren't able to dine in at the restaurant at the moment. Being in Courtice, we were a little concerned about the drive home and whether the food would survive it) but we decided to risk it and try it anyway.It's important to note that we have been visiting your restaurant for years (and have never been disappointed with the food or the service - both are top notch) but this would be the first time we would be picking up and driving our food home.Last night we arrived at the restaurant at 5:20 (our pick up time) and the food was packaged and ready to go so we could leave almost as soon as we arrived. Everything was individually packaged in take out containers and was ready to eat as soon as we got through the door.All of the meats (beef and chicken) were cooked to perfection and my fish delicious. I was surprised to see you included your bread and hummus in the package (which is always included at the restaurant when dining in) and the desserts were to die for.We definitely plan on doing another take out option in future (if we aren't able to dine in) because the process of picking up and bringing the food home did not take away from the quality, presentation and taste of your food.** Update since new owner Becky has taken over: The team at Chanterelle Bistro continue to impress me with their high level of service and quality of food. Becky has been working hard behind the scenes to introduce some new things to the restaurant (including a Saturday tea service) and many take out options. Thank you Becky for continuing to build on what Derek started! We love coming to visit and you are by far our favourite restaurant in Durham!
