Step into Les Faux Bourgeois, with its sleek mahogany paneling, charming French wait staff and joie de vivre ambiance, and you’d think you’d been transported to a bistro off Les Champs Elysées. But look across the street to the small park and you’ll remember you’re in Mount Pleasant’s Fraser and 15th triangle, an area ‘Fauxbo’ helped put on the map when Stephan Gagnon and Andreas Seppelt opened it in 2008. “We realized on the Eastside, aside from neighbourhood pubs and excellent Asian cuisine, there was no place to go out and get French food and a glass of wine,” says Andreas.

But it’s not just Mount Pleasant locals who flock here for a plate of Boudin Noir and what are known as the best steak frites in the city (just try getting a table without a reservation). People come from all over the lower mainland for their Fauxbo fix. What draws them, along with the excellent French comfort food, is the unpretentious vibe, so different from the white linen service of most French restaurants in Vancouver. “The idea was to create a bistro that was truly a bistro in the traditional sense like you’d find in Montreal or France – noisy, utilitarian, reasonably priced,” says Andreas.

It was our 10 year anniversary dinner and it had been quite a few years since we last dined at Les Faux Bourgeois. They did not disappoint. Absolutely wonderful meal and experience. Food was better than I remembered (my memory of it already being VERY GOOD). Service was A++! Can't wait to go back! Cheers

It was an excellent experience. Food was great, service was attentive. The only nitpicky thing is that the music was a bit loud and not at all French bistro-y. Although it's not a kids menu oriented, my kids enjoyed the squid and salmon and the Shirley temples that the server suggested (not on the menu per se). My older one loved escargot, she ate most of them! My wife had the duck and I had the chicken. Bread service was a nice touch. Next time we'll try the mussels and steak.

Incredible. Some of the best food I've had in my life and I'm a foodie. Definitely the best French restaurant I have eaten at. The escargot was well done, the Canard Confit was different as the salad was to die for. I would get the Canard Confit just for the salad because that was a standout. The salmon was good but nothing crazy. The Ratatouille with chicken was solidly good as the ratatouille really sent the dish over the top. In general, the vegetables that were prepared were superbly good.

Romantic restaurants in Vancouver

Romantic restaurants in Vancouver

Faux Bourgeois is notably one of Vancouver’s most romantic restaurants. With its dim lighting and delicious French cuisine, this charming bistro is the perfect location to bring that special someone. The menu features classic French fare such as steak frites, bouillabaisse and duck confit. Be sure to come on an empty stomach because you’ll definitely want to try a little bit of everything!

Mussel your way in: Vancouver restaurants for moules-frites

Mussel your way in: Vancouver restaurants for moules-frites

Discerning diners have claimed the Moules Marinières served at this Fraserhood bistro are the best in the city. It’s not a tough argument to make. The soup-like broth they come swimming in is good enough to slurp. Studded with mellow garlic, freshened with parsley and brightened with white wine and a hint of lemon, you’ll want to ask for a spoon. The fat mussels retain their own briny flavour and the aioli that comes with the fries is a welcome touch.

Bon appétit! Vancouver's excellent French bistros

Bon appétit! Vancouver's excellent French bistros

A pioneer on the formerly sketchy block of Fraser and Kingsway, Les Faux Bourgeois has expanded to accommodate the legions of Vancouver diners who have been flocking here since 2008. This is no-fuss, old world French cooking: salade de gesiers, pâté de campagne duck confit, bouillabaisse. Staff are charmingly French-accented and the space itself refreshingly unfussy. Reservations are strongly recommended, or find a spot at the bar if that craving for Cassoulet on a cold January night quickly needs addressing.
