Tetra Kitchen and Vines
… an urban, suburban experience.



Tetra Kitchen and Vines (An Urban Suburban Culinary Experience) opened in 2014 as the brainchild of 4 local Durham Region business people with a vision for excellence and a passion for food. Chef Chad (James Chatterpaul) of sister restaurant Chatterpaul’s in Whitby with business partner Penny Johansen, also of Chatterpaul’s, long time restaurant General Manager and restaurant owner Mark Homer plus Ryan Johansen, savvy realtor with a long standing reputation for customer service excellence, married their talents and voila – Tetra Kitchen & Vines was born.

Our team of front and back of house staff members are proudly local – including our extremely creative Executive Chef Andrew Parks who literally lives across the street from our beautiful restaurant.

Our beautiful location at the corner of Liberty and Longworth is situated among the fabulous new neighborhoods of north Bowmanville – complete with tons of parking, wheelchair accessibility and a south-facing patio.

We are know as a haven for local foodies and our fan base grows by the week!

We are open 7 days a week for dinner at 4pm.  We will gladly open early for lunch
for business groups or large parties.

We would be pleased to provide a list of our many brides and grooms who have celeb rated their special day with us at Tetra.

We are happy to accommodate any food allergies whenever possible.

    We recently dropped by to hear music performed
    by JAYBEL and we were so very impressed by the staff , service and food. A very subtle classy upscale dining experience : the live music really added to the atmosphere.

    We went twice, both times exceptional food, service and décor. Nice to be able to frequent an upscale , non-pub, no- TV -blaring type of establishment locally. One time came without ressies, late…they accommodated us and we did not feel rushed , even until after 9pm. Thanks for a great gastronomique experience!!

    We dined at Tetra last night for the first time and it was exceptional. From the delicious food and artistic presentation to the friendly staff, it is by far the best place to dine in Bowmanville. We will be back and highly recommend Tetra to anyone who has not yet experienced it.

    We went out for my dad’s birthday yesterday to Tetra and I do have to say it was the best food I have had in a very long time. The food we ordered was amazing and the service was very excellent. Staff are so friendly and insure you have what you need. It is such a lovely place run by a very nice owner. We will definitely be returning soon. Would recommend to everyone!!!!!!!
