Amazing fine French restaurant overlooking scenic city views. Almost everything about our experience at Fraiche was impeccable. From the warm and personalized service to the amazing food and the spectacular views.

Now the Food..

Starters

Seared Albacore Tuna Tataki – cucumber & micro green salad, spicy asian black bean vinaigrette. Light and refreshing and tuna cooked very well, too bad it was a size of a quarter.

Duck Liver Parfait – country bread toasts, seasonal chutney. Very flavourful and liver was not too overpowering as found in some.

Mains

Pan seared Steelhead Salmon – turned potatoes, provencal garnish, sautéed shellfish, rich aromatic tomato saffron emulsion. Amazing! The tang from the apricot and lemon sauce highlights the the sweetness of the perfectly cooked salmon. Explosion of flavor

House-made Turkey Boudin – spiced with caramelized onion, winter fruits & herbs, apricot chutney, pomme purée, haricot vert. I expected more flavor in the turkey, a bit bland for me. The mash was very creamy not overly salty.

Desserts

Pear & Almond Tart – chantilly cream, spiced caramel sauce. It was above par however the Coconut Brulée – toasted coconut tuille, chocolate sorbet is the clear winner. It was lovely not too sweet, the texture was smooth and creamy. The sugar layer was crispy without being burnt.

Fraiche gets Food Persuasion of Date Restaurant Approval. A bit of a warning if you are not familiar with West Vancouver this place is quite hidden and off of the busy major streets, bring your GPS.
