Quite possibly the best omelette I have ever had. Quite a cool place..... am I in Paris? The decor is fantastic, the staff are very good. Delicious food and drinks. There is also a bar, very classy.

Situated in the heart of the Kitsilano district of Vancouver you’d be hard pressed to find a more authentic French bistro atmosphere. Service by a former resident of Saint Tropez, the food was perfectly prepared. We chose the fish offering but given the unbeatable quality...More

Lovely Parisien style bistrot in the heart of the West 4th Strip of restaurants/shops. Staff are French sounding/speaking and have their own quirks, but in a good way. Lunchtime meals are fast and well prepared. Pricing in the $15-22 range. Pomme Frites (French Fries!) are...More
