Bistrot Bistro

September 6th, 2008 · No Comments

Popular local Kistilano spot. Dropped in here on a whim when we couldn’t get a table at Fuel (even at 9pm at night there was a 45 minute wait). Solid food – nothing special on the calibre of average good food. Selling French bistro fare in a nice casual setting. Started off the meal with a Lillet and a Kir. Apparently sometimes when you have to wait for your table, they will give you a complimentary kir while you wait (nice touch).

Good crusty French bread. The appetizer of house charcuterie, pate, fondant, and pork rilette
was both filling and generous in size. The beef bourguignon was recommended and came in a piping hot pot with minimal sauce – not stew-like at all. The Fisherman stew pot with snapper, halibut, shrimp, scallop and mussel was average. Many wines served by the glass in generous servings with suggested pairings on the menu.

Overall – great local neighbourhood spot with simple bistro fare and wine – all served in generous portions at a reasonable price. Friendly and attentive service. Relaxed atmosphere. A tasting menu is also offered Sun-Thurs which we haven’t tried but looked to be good value – approximately ?$25 for 3 courses. There is also Karma Tuesdays where a portion of the restaurant profit is donated to charity.
