How It All Began

Tarik and Sara-Ann created, own and operate Bistro 1843. The opportunity to revitalize an abandoned historic building combined with a unique vision of a restaurant gave way to Bistro 1843. Since 2009, guided by the principle that small is beautiful and that quality artisan workmanship cannot be mass produced, they have embraced what makes them different. Today, Bistro 1843 is no longer just their restaurant. It is the hub of their family life. Not just a business, but a way of life. It has redefined the “family run business”.

About The Experience

Bring Your Own Wine!

A Unique Dining Experience

Honouring a deep family tradition of hospitality, Sara-Ann and Tarik welcome guests into their home, a seigneurial manor built in 1843. In a warm, unpretentious and relaxing atmosphere, they take pride in offering quality food and service, and emphasize the simplicity of ingredients. The chef has a unique ability to develop depth and balance of flavour creating wholesome dishes that evoke comfort and enjoyment.
