Pied a terre is a cosy 30 seat restaurant hidden under a black awning on Cambie street. It has been voted one of the best casual french bistros in the city.

The service is attentive and friendly. The surroundings very bistro french. The food is pretty good and reasonably priced but nothing wowed us. I had the duck confit which was a generous portion of perfectly cooked duck confit which was tender and easily came of the boon and although I liked the grilled peach accompaniment, the white beans in a sea of sweet brown sauce (a reminder of the quebecois pork and beans) surrounding the duck was a bit overpowering. The entrecote was just a tad overdone and the fries although tasty and relatively crispy were slightly disappointing – we were expecting thinner crispier fries. That being said, apparently the tarragon chicken was excellent. In addition, our tablemates really liked their chocolate mousse. As well, they keep their lillet appropriately chilled which is how it should be served so kudos to them.

Overall, it is pretty good french food in a quaint surrounding with friendly service. I think it is a tad more expensive than Bistrot Bistrot and Les Faux Bourgeois, but it is not a bad option if you live in the neighbourhood. The table d’hote is $42.50 including a glass of wine and most of the mains are $19-25.
