We tried Le Vol Au Vent this summer for the first time and we were not disappointed. Most definitely an excellent French dining experience, and one that is very different from other restaurants on Marine Drive. Be prepared to spend the time to enjoy your meal, while service can be a little slow, its certainly worth the wait and makes... More

Had a wonderful lunch here on Friday. The lamb sausages made perfectly, the chanterelle's amazing, the prawns and scallops perfectly prepared. We finished with a lovely fresh fruit millefeuille. The service is sometimes a bit slow but it is worth the wait. Everything prepared on the premises.

A friend and I recently dined at this very French, very quaint, unique little enclave at West Beach. The appetizers were outstanding. My friend had duck pate and I had escargot, delicious. The bread and butter flowed beautifully with the meal as did the selected wines we chose. My friend had a seafood salad that looked gorgeous and tasted even... More

This restaurant is a cute gem on the strip and their menu is not huge but definitely covers the aspects of French cuisine. The prices are moderate and I suggest getting the seafood salad. It's loaded with mussels, scallops and fish and at 15 dollars, this is not one to pass up. The crepes and sandwiches are very rich because... More

Le Vol Au Vent is unique in this part of the Lower Mainland outside the Vancouver City itself in that it offers authentic French cuisine cooked by the hand of a master - all fresh ingredients and a menu that took me back to eating in the family restaurants of rural France. It doesn't take many diners to pack out... More

There were four of us for the 'bite of the rock', the annual dine out for WR. fixed priced menu $35. Well worth it for both quality and portion size. A fantastic Camembert pear salad for starter, followed by a choice of half duck tl'orange, bouillabaisse, rabbit among other choices. The deserts were fantastic, tarts, creme brûlée, poached pears. All... More

I came here with friends who are well acquainted with Nana and Michel who own the restaurant. I guess it's the sign of a good restaurant when they able to pack it full of people on a miserable cold weekday night in November. We did have to wait about half and hour, but other than that, everything was exceptional. Nana... More

Dining with locals, we were thoroughly delighted with all on offer. In our group, we had vol a vent with chanterelle mushrooms, seafood salad, duck l'orange, escargot, lamb cutlets. Nana, our friendly hostess, enticed us whilst we perused the menu, with her offerings.. She watched keenly as we consumed each delicious morsel. Have I mentioned the huge range of delectable... More

We used to love coming to this place but the last time we were here at the end of June it had really gone downhill. It was a Friday night and the owner who also is the only waitress, was so overwhelmed that we received really bad service. The chef, who is also the owner, could not handle all the... More

Very good French food with staff that make it delicious! The Chantelle mushroom vol au vent was very tasty and highly recommended. In fact, WHAT A HIDDEN GEM!! This has to be one eatery to visit along the White Rock promenade. It's somewhat deceiving and the decor a bit hole-in-the-wall compared to the plethora of other restaurants nearby, but sit... More
