This famous West End eatery offers first-class, affordable French cuisine in a casual European setting, located on Denman Street. A quick walk from Stanley Park and the downtown core, it's Vancouver's oldest (since 1977) and most authentic French bistro. At 65 seats, it's a typically intimate setting; casual, bright and elegant, with white linen tables and postered walls. Cafe de Paris has built an enviable reputation as the perfect stop for a night on the town or a place to wine and dine amongst European warmth and character.
Paris Pommes Frites
The fame of Cafe de Paris' pommes frites is widespread, and of course they have great wines, hailing mainly from France and B.C. Daily specials feature the market's best. The chef's daily three-course table d'hote is highly sought after, and there are a la carte specials too. Vegetarians have choices, including a special vegetarian casserole. Lunch and dinner favourites include bouillabaisse, cassoulet and New York steak. If looking to have an intimate Parisian soiree, the café caters for private parties.
With a string of awards from the local press and Wine Spectator, Café de Paris continues, under the ownership of Daniel Thomas and Jon-Michel Preece, to improve on their version of the traditions of French cuisine. All dishes are prepared entirely in-house, from pates to desserts. Catch the annual game festival, dating from October 15 to the end of November, and expect a range of opulent range of choices such as pheasant, bison or boar.
