The most authentic aspect of Salade de Fruits is that it proves French food does not have to be pretentious and ridiculously expensive, and can still be delicious, copious and satisfying. This is the best value French cuisine in Vancouver, and with an ever changing menu and super-fresh ingredients.
I've been there several times now, and it's always amazing from start to finish - great service, team-like effort of bonafide Frenchies, fresh and delicious food and great bang for the buck.
On my first visit I had the mussels, which are a large serving and come in a delicious cream sauce and with an enormous side of homemade fries. The next time I had the halibut, fish of the day, which was exceptionally tender and covered in a creamy butter sauce. Even the vinaigrette on the salad is to die for. The duck pate is more of an appetizer, but is great for sharing and does not taste over processed, and has actual bits of shredded duck throughout.
The service is great, and the servers work in a team to make sure everyone is satisfied and gets what they need. They're fast, friendly and 100% french!
This is a hidden gem that you probably wouldn't notice from walking by, but is a definite must-try. Highly recommended to all ages and tastes!
