    A lunch today of Saltspring Island mussels was one of the finest mussel dishes I have enjoyed. The mussels were plump and sweet and succulent and the sauce was a rich tomato and lardon perfect balance to the mussels. It was a memorable meal and will be repeated soon!

    The four of us, two couples, each had a different item from the menu - appetizers, mains and desserts - and all the dishes were excellent, as was the friendly service. We are recommending Ca Va to friends and family and will definitely return. Thank you!

    This was my second visit to Ca Va. My first time was for dinner and this time was for brunch. Both times the food was excellent and the service was excellent. I like that they are attentive but not over the top. I will definitely recommend this restaurant to others. The prices are also very reasonable for the quality of food you're getting.

    Tremendous city-status restaurant in lovely West Vancouver. Pass the bridge, the lineups at Park Royal's mass-type eateries and indulge the senses at Ca Va. Lovely wine, fine desserts and expertly crafted mains. Servers are kind and conscientious. Chef is from West Van himself and came to greet us. Best for special events but great for anytime.

    With only two other people in the restaurant, our waiter was too busy on his computer, we had to get up and get silverware from snother empty table, as well as get up to get pepper and salt. Corny painted flowers on windows, unrelated moving art, it is trying to look sophisticated and is just a jumble of incongruous items. Food was average.

    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.
