Be transported to an oasis of comfy class with a menu to make even the most seasoned foodie salivate. Located in the lovely Coast Tsawwassen Inn, the newly re-crafted Beaches Restaurant and Lounge serves up generous and artful servings of West Coast cuisine with a French flair. Executive chef Pascal Dargorne is certainly a coup for Beaches, with such esteemed local restaurants in his repertoire as Café de Paris and Cyrano Restaurant, and brings with him authentic experience in the French culinary arts, having trained in his native France. Almost all the ingredients are hand-selected locally and organics are used when possible. And of course, the décor rivals the food in rich decadence, with deep brown woods, a marble bar and long, white, elegant cloths draped artfully across the many intimate tables that Beaches regulars flock to week after week.
Fine Dining for the Whole Family
Chef Dargorne, along with his executive sous-chef Rajeev Arora, regularly craft special menus to showcase their talents and have prepared an unrivalled à la cart menu. Menu selections range from beef tenderloin medallion and tiger prawns to wild salmon escalope served with a juniper berry merlot sauce and west coast cioppino to fresh Nova Scotia lobster. Some of the more popular appetizers are the baked pistachio crusted goat cheese, lobster and crab bisque, or duck foie gras and apple baked in a puff pastry. They also have excellent shared platters at extremely reasonable prices, per couple, such as the Beaches Seafood Platter, complete with appetizers, salad and a bevy of beautifully crafted seafood choices. And for the little mouths in your dinner party, never fear, you’re sure to find a few basic items that will please them.
Early to Rise
Brunch is also on the upscale side here and is a favourite for the Delta crowd, especially on the weekends when the restaurant opens for the very early crowd. Try the Beaches omelette or the healthier version with just egg whites. The menu also features a wide variety of Benedicts, frittatas, fruit plates and even a low-carb waffle plate. Lunch features a wide range of salads, sandwiches, juicy burgers, wraps and quiche. The restaurant also features a bar side lounge for the casual crowd, a semi-private banquet area for gatherings, outdoor patio, as well as live weekend musicians, serving up light jazz and easy listening.
