Our Story

Welcome

The St Tropez Bistro has been a family-owned and operated restaurant in Saskatoon since 1979 and was originally located on 3rd Ave S…in 1998 a desire to do something different brought about the purchase of this landmark building on Second Avenue. Our historic brick building, formally known as the Hanson Building, was originally constructed in 1906…the main level was leased to the Bank Of Nova Scotia, and the second level held the builder, Albert H. Hanson’s Farm Lands & Investments Office. With over 100 years of character and charm, it seemed like the perfect home for us to continue to evolve our business. Two generations have helmed our little restaurant here in the “Paris of the Prairies”, each adding something uniquely theirs to our Bistro.

As our focus has always been cooking from scratch, using fresh ingredients & sourcing local whenever possible. In 1999 Jason built a little herb garden here on our rooftop…that garden has grown to include a variety of Heirloom Tomatoes, Squash, Peppers, Beans & edible flowers

In 2015 our garden expanded even further when we purchased land south-west of the city along the South Saskatchewan River. It is there that we spend our days off gardening, foraging & taking in a prairie sunset or two.

Our menu is influenced by life on the prairies, where we have travelled & what we grow in our gardens.
