The special of the night, rabbit with mustard, was super. The meat was juicy and the mustard sauce was perfect. The salad with the poached pear and the sardines starter were excellent. The owner/hostess sang a song while leading us to the table. This added enchantment to the atmosphere. Cafe Ca Va is the best French restaurant in the region.

Very disappointed with the service. I booked a table for 7 at 8:15 for a surprise birthday dinner for my wife. We didn't get our table until 9:10...50 minutes late. I complained and the owner put out a plate of pate and basically said:"what do you want me to do? The table before you arrived 30min late". I really would have expected more.

Food portions were generous and the salmon starter and boeuf bourguignon were superb. Service was reasonably attentive and the noise level was very moderate, making for a very enjoyable evening of converstation with friends. Love the "no corkage" Tuesday night

As soon as we read the review in Vancouver magazine and found out that Brigitte and Alain were working together again, we made a reservation. Excited to experience the food and service we enjoyed at La Regalade, Cafe Ca Va did not disappoint! From appetizers to desert, the food was delicious, refined and beautifully plated. The room transported us away like we were on holidays and the service was exceptional. We will definitely be returning sooner than later!

I gave only three stars for atmosphere as I did like the old look better. Missed the warmth of it. Also too bad they no longer have the French chanteuse and the piano bar. Baring that - service is excellent and the food divine. We went there for the happy hour mussels. Three course meal - can't be beat.

Quirky but nice decor and excellent attentive service. The menu is pared down and favours carnivores however the food is excellent. The fixed price 3 course menu is good value. We enjoyed our meal and will return.

We had a fantastic lunch and we were particularly impressed with the hostess. We had to wait for our reserved table but she brought us each a nice glass of Kir Royale for our trouble. We loved the lemon tart and my friend loved her pork sandwich. We would have liked to have seen more vegetarian options on the menu. Two of us had to settle for a frittata which was very good but something we could make ourselves at home. We came because we knew the team from La Regalade was there and we were not disappointed.

Four of us commented after dinner that it was one of the most enjoyable meals we had ever had. All four of us have had the opportunity to travel the world and enjoy many wonderful dining experiences so agreed that Alain as Chef and Brigitte's front of house service is a very special combination.

While we were there, there was a sudden eruption from the kitchen where the chef began shouting at the top of his lungs to his kitchen staff and throwing or banging pots and pans around. This went on for a good 4-5 minutes, which was very upsetting to customers as the kitchen is open to the restaurant. This qualifies as psychological harassment at the workplace and certainly ruined the lunch of everyone who was eating there. I don't care how good the food is. I for one will never set foot in that restaurant again.

Fabulous lunch! As it was a birthday lunch, and we were offered dessert, I was surprised to find that we were charged the full price for it. Our onion soup, and the Croque Monsieur that we three shared was amazing, and the wine too. To go with the fabulous ambience, I would suggest cotton serviettes for lunch as well as dinner...the paper ones look tacky and are non environmental. We will be back!

Food and service was absolutely perfect. Our waiter was very patient and helpful with my 95 yr. old mother-in-law. The french onion soup was the best, but the lemon tart for dessert was the show stopper!! I can honestly say, it is one of the best desserts I have ever had. We will return!!!

Lovely cafes for a sandwich in West Van

Lovely cafes for a sandwich in West Van

During the day this French bistro on Marine Drive in West Vancouver plates some of the best classic and original sandwiches anywhere in the Lower Mainland. One of their must-try items is the Croque Madame, which is basically a ham and cheese sandwich topped with a béchamel sauce and more cheese, then baked in the oven before being topped with a fried egg — a Parisian classic and sure to satisfy your midday hunger.
