What the Bistro is all about!

We've added a bit of a “European / French” flavour to this wonderful 150-year old house in Historic Amherstburg. 

AND . . . We are going to be doing a whole lot more!

Our aim is quite simple.  We've created a different kind of restaurant, one where you can come and taste things that you just can't get anywhere else!   And you won't find “burgers, steaks, chicken, pizza, wings and fries”.  I promise. 


And now, just to put things into perspective . . . Every Day . . . We bake real French Baguettes, all butter croissants &  Danish . . .  Chocolate, Raspberry, Apple, Maple or Cinnamon, along with homemade desserts like "Nutella & Walnut Bread Pudding".

We still have all your favorite Panini and Salads, but you should try some of the new tastes we have brought in:

Smoked Atlantic Salmon on a "Montreal Style" bagel

Home-made French Onion Soup "gratinée" with Emmentaler Swiss Cheese and Parmesan

New salads include a  Chèvre salad, Julienne salad & a Nicoise salad

Artisanal Cheese, Charcuterie (cured meats) and Pâtés plates ***

*** We serve these plates with as much crusty Baguette as you wish.   We supply all the condiments that work well with your choices: wine jelly from Oxley Estates, Dijon from France, Confit d’onions from Québec, fresh fruit, cornichons, olives and gherkins.    


This winter and spring we are planning to return to some "Traditional" cooking values and create some unique Specialty Dinner Evenings:

We call them

“Dalhousie Bistro Soirées”

For more information, visit our "Bistro Events & Soirées" page.

For those who enjoy good food, let's go on a voyage.  

Just imagine for a moment . . . You have a glass of wine within reach. You are biting into a piece of crusty French Bread . . . it has a thin coat of Triple-Cream Brie from France and a touch of wine jelly. The combination of tastes is extraordinarily good.

You lean back to savour the moment.  It’s late in the afternoon.  From the porch of the Bistro you view the gardens and then the Detroit River, peeking out from under the trees in King’s Navy Yard Park. Life is good. And you’ve found your little oasis in Amherstburg.

A small sip of wine . . . and preparation for the next taste experience . . . a thin slice of Rosette de Lyons with a touch of Dijon and a sweet morsel of "Confit d’Onions" to balance the flavours.  Another great taste sensation.

Know what is really wonderful?  

Are you having company coming in for the evening, don't have the time to set up  hors d'oeuvres,   visit our Cheese and Chacuterie page, 

pick your favorites, call the bistro  at 519 736-0880 , and we can have everything set and ready for you to pick up.  .... Or, you can drop off your own serving plates,  ssshhhhhh ..... we won't tell.  

Like everything on our menu, these are all available for Take-out or Eat-in.
