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.

This is my 3rd dining at Les Faux Bourgeois within the last month and all 3 Diners initiated by me and booked by me yet to my surprise the last one on Sunday March 7 we had a server that he said his name is Mathew, that I felt tipping him was not earned or even worthy for his lack of service and comments. Like he has no time for us ??? He did not offer the special or inform us what is available. He was arrogant, brought the bill before we ask for it. The desert was skipped, this will deter us.

The French boyfriend got to feel like he was in France again, and when he’s happy, I’m happy. Food was exquisite—he had chicken cassoulet, I had salmon hazelnut. I was SO glad I didn’t have starchy food for a change, I’ll be able to eat without increasing the waistline! lol. He was so sad that the potato dish is no longer served, he said it’s the best there! The barriers are great too because we have a conversation more easily and not catch any illnesses... hope they stay after the pandemic!

Everything was exquisite. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. The food was amazing. Large portions for a very reasonable price. We had the escargot, goat cheese and beet salad, beef tartare and mussels and clams. Everything was prepared and presented beautifully. We celebrated our one year anniversary and had a wonderful time. Covid protocols were followed and we felt safe and comfortable. Romantic setting perfect for date night! We will definitely return.

Les Faux is truly one of the best restaurants in Vancouver. I have been going for years and have never had an experience anything short of superb! The food is impeccable, and the service is friendly, professional and engaging. Go for the Steak Frits and stay for the Martinis.

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.
