Provence Marinaside – Vancouver, Yaletown

February 8th, 2010 · No Comments

If you are strolling along the seawall, Provence Marinaside is a good place to stop for a bite to eat. If it is nice outside, one of the patio tables is a great place to eat, drink and people watch or be watched. Although it can be crowded, so be prepared to wait if you don’t have a reservation.

We happened to eat inside as it was a rainy (surprise) winter day in Vancouver. Inside, the ambience is relaxed and comfortable with most tables quickly filling up although we didn’t feel squished in like sardines, possibly because we had a table for 10. I had the baked eggs florentine (two eggs, pancetta, spinach, velouté, gruyere cheese, toasted baguette) which was good but nothing special. We also tried the basked of fresh baked goods which was not bad but again nothing special – in fact, I thought the croissants were slightly disappointing. Overall, the food was average – not bad, not great – which is not unlike many restaurants scattered all over Vancouver. It is the location and convenience to Yaletown yuppies which is what makes this a busy spot to eat. Service was attentive and friendly.
