Eastern European (Czech/Hungarian) hidden gem. Cooking like Aunt Sofia, with organic herbs and fresh cheeses and meats. Dark, intimate setting in a historic home. Cash only

Best restaurant in Niagara Falls...go here
November 15, 2013

Excellent little gem, we actually had our wedding dinner here, with family and then went again this year and still loved it ! coq au vin, is my favorite and my husband is a huge dumpling fan and he said they are the best dumplings he has had. Call for reservations.

Turn back the pages of history............in Prague
June 03, 2013

This would be the perfect safe house for George Smiley. It's very likely that Jim Prideaux was stashed there after his luckless intrigue in Prague. Jarmila is the owner/chef and has been in Canada for 30+ years. She's a buxom Eastern European hostess who entices her guests with exotic Czech and Hungarian dishes. A spicy as you want, the sauces... more

Maybe the best food in Niagara falls - definitely cooked with the most love
February 16, 2013

Went there last night for a romantic dinner and couldn't be happier that we did. The pride and knowledge that the chef/owner has in her food shows.

Too pricey to visit often
February 10, 2013

Lovely, intimate, and reminiscent of my Mother's and Grandmother's cooking, however the prices were prohibitive and we could not afford to visit more often than once per year on special occasions. I was hoping for at least a token piece of cake for my husband, as the owner knew it was his birthday, however none was forthcoming. I can buy... more

An unexpected rare gem in a tourist town of overpriced, pedestrian eateries
October 15, 2012

Red Chateau is world class, small, quiet romantic, reminiscent of the quaint neighborhood restaurants commonplace to Paris but unique to Niagra Falls. The owner/ chef can hold her own with any of the world's greats. The beef stroganoff is the best I've ever had, better even than the outstanding beef stroganoff featured as a house specialty in the St Petersberg... more

June 29, 2012

We were looking forward to dinner here given its billing as fresh, home-cooked food with a Czech flavor. The house it is in is darling, although not in a great neighborhood, but then there is an odd display case in the front room. Perhaps our group of 8 overwhelmed the owner, who does it all herself (serving, cooking, etc.) The... more

Despite the French name, Red Chateau serves wonderful East European food.

I believe that this is the only non-chain restaurant in all of Niagara. And what a treat! The Red Chateau is a tiny, quirky little place about 15 minutes northwest of the Falls.
