About Fraîche & Beachside Forno
This waterside location on Ambleside Beach in West Vancouver offers a comfortable, coveted setting overlooking beach, ocean, mountains, the Vancouver skyline and even the rainforest that is Stanley Park. The “landmark” building has long been a neighbourhood favourite, with its large sunny patio and airy interior. It’s an ideal spot for a romantic cocktail, a friendly lunch, gatherings for family and friends and, of course, to watch the summer sun set from the patio. The atmosphere is relaxed, casual and fun while the food is creative, generous and affordable.
The team behind Fraîche strives to create an exceptional dining experience of both calibre and comfort – their mission is to create memorable, interesting cuisine that is seasonal and regional in a welcoming setting. Fraîche’s subtle elegance makes it versatile for every occasion – from brunch to business lunches and after work drinks to romantic dinners and celebrations of all sorts. Fraîche was awarded Gold for Best North Shore Restaurant in this year’s Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards following it’s Silver win in 2009. The restaurant has achieved numerous glowing reviews from Greater Vancouver food media and was named one of Canada’s Top Ten Best New Restaurants of 2008 by enRoute Magazine. The restaurant’s panoramic cityscape views complement Chef Dino Renaerts’s inspired cooking, as does the impressive service, top notch wine list and lovely little extras.
