Our only complaint was the mussels in the first course were dry and not as plump as we expected. Everything else was exceptional. Thank you.

Nice atmosphere, with nice music background and good service. The starter was good, being chickpeas, asparagus, and egg. The main dish was the beef bourguignon which was a little dry and salty. The chicken was good. The best was the dessert: chartreuse soufflé.

My only complaint would be about the vegetable served with the duck entree: it was charred, tough and I could not tell if it was leeks or fennel, but I think anything would have been better.than that . Otherwise everything was fine and of course we will be back.

Our food was deliciously outstanding in flavour and the portion sizes were perfect. Everyone left feeling completely satisfied and not over stuffed. Our server was very attentive without us feeling like she was hovering over us. I will definitely be returning and bringing all my friends!

The dishes of the spot prawn dinner special that we attended were terrific. The atmosphere of Cafe Ca Va is casual but elegant. This is a special place. We are coming back to try the whole roast duck. We witnessed it being served once and it looked and smelled amazing.

This was our first visit to Cafe Ca Va. My husband and I were huge fans of the chef's previous restaurant La Regalade and were excited to try his new restaurant. The atmosphere is lovely and the decor is gorgeous (even the washrooms!). The service was fantastic and the owner (female) was very accommodating to my dietary restrictions with being pregnant. She ensured that I was able to get the meal that I had come for - the beef bourgignon, which she gave me the last serving of and it was delicious! The french onion soup was also very good and I highly recommend the lemon tart - it was amazing. My husband also thoroughly enjoyed the duck fois gras, beef tenderloin, and the chocolate mousse desert.

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.

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.
