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.

AS always Les Faux Bourgeois is a wonderful dining out experience. The service is second to none and all the dishes we have eaten have been great. If I have one negative it is that there was too much food in my steak frites order. Not really a problem.

It was awesome. There was not a single false note. The Tarte Alsacienne we shared as an appetizer was full of flavour. My wife's steelhead was cooked just right, not underdone, not overdone, it was light and melt in your mouth and she loved the sauce. My Coq au Vin was a huge contrast, that deep, dark, rich gravy I couldn't get enough of, with all the bits of bacon and onion; I didn't leave a scrap. Desserts were classic too, service was friendly and helpful. Great place.

Service was great, and they had good covid procedures in place (plexiglass between tables, all staff in masks). Food was delicious, reasonably priced and good portions. We shared the French onion soup, beef tartare, mushroom tart, risotto and creme brulee. Would definitely go back and eat this meal again!

A fantastic evening out in the midst of these most challenging times. Celebrating my wife's birthday and we needed to get out! The covid protocols employed were appropriate and explained well, in advance of our arrival. Our server was friendly, informed and professional - he helped to make the evening relaxed and enjoyable. The meals were excellent - just what we hoped for, and why we continue to return to Les Faux.

The food was fabulous - especially loved the pâté appetizer. Service was impeccable, friendly, professional in every way. Very good anti-Covid safety measures in place with limited numbers of diners, all separated by plexiglass barriers that do not detract from the usual atmosphere of the restaurant. My only minor complaint is that the restaurant is very dark. My very elderly guest and I needed a flashlight to read the menu. Otherwise, a perfect dinner out!

We went to FB for my husband’s birthday. Everything was great: the food, atmosphere, the service, and the price. We felt very safe as there was sufficient distant between tables, staff wore masks, and host offered sanitation soap immediately. Music was soft and did not overwhelm. A couple of appetizers can be changed to a vegetarian option.

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.
