Terrible service. I love this restaurant for the food but the service keeps me from never going there. The restaurant is owned by a husband and wife team and they refuse to hire any help ie waiter/waitress or bus boy. So the service is always slow, and you're constantly surrounded by dirty dishes as they rarely bus the surrounding tables unless they absolutely have to.

We had not been here for ~2 years and this was our 3rd/4th time here overall. The food is always good and this time we had: cod fish n'chips (for the kids), duck a l'orange (for me) which was quite good but a touch drier than i would have liked, (seafood) bouillabaise, and a vol au vent with chantrille mushroom starter. The ingredients are all fantastic, the skinny fries were served up as a 'free' appetizer for the kids, the desserts (which we never have time for) look delicious. This is a family affair so the service is not the quickest, but then again it is french and friendly. Comparing this to our other favorite french bistro, Jules in Gastown, this would be #2. Overall, any time we want a nice dinner along the beach in White Rock, we would probably 75% come here again versus all the other options.

Went for dinner early Sept 2009 at the recommendation of a "foodie" friend and was pleasantly surprised when the recommendation was more than exceeded by the experience! The owners are a French gentleman and his wife, who I think is Indian. He cooks, she manages. And boy, can he cook! We were greeted with a small plate of toasted baguette and pate: absolutely lovely. I have to say, the block of pate we got as an appetizer was not as much to my taste -- too much liver and not enough herbs. But perhaps that's me. Others at our table enjoyed it. I had the duck, cooked medium-rare, with a raspberry sauce -- simple but prepared absolutely perfectly. It came with pommes frittes sprinkled with sea salt. The atmosphere is that of a simple restaurant you'd find any where in France -- where they care more about ingredients and what they put on the table than the tables themselves! The MAIN thing here is that the food is truly fresh and (even late in the evening) prepared with care and skill.
