About Bistro Pastis


“John Blakeley is one of the most intuitive restaurateurs in the city…he is Left Bank but right brain – this is smart, cozy cooking at decent prices.”  Vancouver Magazine

Bistro Pastis is as close as you can get to Paris without a plane ticket. The menu features classic bistro fare (Coq au Vin, Bouillabaisse or Steak Frites for instance) served with a contemporary touch along with one of the finest by-the-glass wine lists in Vancouver. Add streams of natural light through the café windows to the warmth of a crackling fireplace in an intimate room presided over by a genuine French Maitre d’ and you have all the ingredients for a memorable meal.  If you’re in a hurry or just meeting a friend for a drink, Bistro Pastis also offers prime people-watching seats along its traditional front-room bar.
