Owner Liz Ingram-Chambers has been bringing a taste of Paris to Halifax at Le Bistro since 2011. She imparts this love of old-world French cuisine by offering French-style comfort foods and favorites every day. Not only is the food comforting, but the atmosphere is comfortable, elegant, and welcoming. Regardless of how much you know about French cuisine, classics like boeuf bourguignon, coquilles St-Jacques, and croque monsieur are sure to have you humming “La Vie en Rose” in no time!


Liz Ingram-Chambers greets an elderly couple, helping the gentleman with his walker. She asks how they’re doing, bringing them past the foyer and into her restaurant with the same grace and interest she’d possess if they were her own family. Ingram-Chambers has spent the better part of her life with customers like these. Le Bistro By Liz, the restaurant on South Park Street is a staple, as much her home as anywhere else.

The business, now owned by the restaurant’s former general manager Liz Ingram-Chambers, reopened this month and is already attracting “regulars” from 10 years ago. Every second person that comes in says they used to come in years ago and tell me how happy they are that we’ve reopened,” Ingram-Chambers told Restaurant News.

Back to Basics

halifax-mag Haligonians love comfort food but we don’t necessarily want to dress to the nines to get it. That blissful feeling of being home, dressed down and getting away from it all, is exactly the ambience that restaurateur Liz Ingram-Chambers is hoping to recreate in her new take on an old and popular Halifax haunt, Le Bistro. Which is, once again, occupying the same bottom corner of the Park Victoria, on the corner of South Park and Clyde streets.
