Meet the owner

For those old enough to remember, American chef and television personality Julia Child is credited with introducing French cuisine to North America. She famously told her audience that anything was better with butter – lots of it.

How things have changed. At West Vancouver’s innovative, French-inspired restaurant, Terroir Kitchen, executive chef and proprietor Faizal Kassam is offering up perfectly executed and simply divine dishes that are also healthy. Sounds like an oxymoron? Non!

Terroir Kitchen is the face of modern French-inspired cuisine. Having said that, Faizal also features Mediterranean gastronomy with nods to Italy, Spain and North Africa.

All the ingredients, save the olive oil, vinegars and some cheeses (the superb burrata is flown in from Southern Italy once or twice weekly), are locally sourced and, as much as possible, sustainable. “I get my fresh Ocean Wise  fish daily and all of the meats are free-range and antibiotic free,” he notes. “I change a few dishes on the menu once a month based on the seasonality of the produce."

Terroir is known for its shared plates, many of which have become fan favourites: the crispy pork belly with smoked cauliflower puree and lentils is sublime; the potato gnocchi with venison ragu, crispy sage, saffron pecorino and cocoa nibs is stunning; and the juicy bone marrow is wonderfully balanced by apple, parsley, capers and pickled pearl onions. “The potato gnocchi is adapted from a 100-year-old recipe given to me by a former chef,” adds Faizal.

For those looking for heartier fare, Terroir Kitchen also offers bigger plates, such as roasted elk, half chicken, grilled skirt steak and catch of the day. Vegetarians, you haven’t been forgotten – the winter squash is chock-full of earthy deliciousness.

This was our first visit to Terroir Kitchen and we had an absolutely wonderful meal. The food was so tasty and beautifully presented without being pretentious. Our server Hannah was cheerful and very knowledgeable about the menu and the wines. At the end of the evening when Hannah was unable to secure a cab for us and as we were the last people in the restaurant she and her boyfriend offered to drive us to our hotel which helped end our lovely evening on a high note. If we have the opportunity in the future we would definitely return to Terroir Kitchen.

Kitchen is authentic and creative. We had a fabulous meal. The restaurant is so underrated for its creativity and flavours. Just not "a scene". The duck two ways was just the best. My hat is off to the chef. Try the bone marrow,. The squid. The gnocchi. It just goes on and on. Next time Cornish game hen.

Celebrating friendmas at Terroir Kitchen made our day. Our server Craig was the biggest sweetheart you will ever meet and very enthusiastic in recommending what to get. The foie gras terrine was heavenly and one of our favorite dishes that night. We had the duck to share and that was a burst of flavor and one of the best duck I had in Vancouver. I will definitely recommend everyone to check them out. A cosy restaurant, amazing service, our drinks were absolutely stunning and food was just mesmerizing. Thank you to the terroir team for such a welcoming dining experience.

Awesome flavours, excellent “personalized” service, warm cozy intimate atmosphere However, the lighting of/on the exterior “Terroir” signage is so weak at night that it is impossible to find at night. It should be fixed.

Terroir has a good selection of vegetarian dishes for my wife and I. The wine list was great, with strong B.C. and international selection. Service was very professional and I wish we had left room for dessert as there was a fantastic offering.
