In January 2003, Vince Morlet opened Tapenade Bistro with the idea of bringing an urban bistro to the historic fishing village of Steveston, BC. Over the past several years, Tapenade has earned the reputation of being an exceptional neighbourhood bistro with great food, outstanding service and fantastic wine. The menu is steeped in French tradition, though is updated with west coast sensibility and is presented in an approachable and informal setting. The philosophy behind the Tapenade kitchen is to showcase the natural beauty of local, sustainable and seasonal ingredients in an appropriate and sumptuous manner.

Tapenade’s wine list is comprised of carefully selected wines with a focus on BC, California and France. These thoughtful and inspired wines make an ideal accompaniment to our simple, yet elegant cuisine.

The restaurant seats 75 inside, as well as 70 on the patio for those warm days in Steveston Village.

Reviews

Tapenade-4

“Many restaurants talk about consistency – consistency in service, atmosphere and food. Not all can live up to that claim. However, Tapenade Bistro in Steveston delivers every time.” Vancouver Sun

“Chef Alex Tung and owner Vince Morlet have both had long and distinguished careers in the Canadian restaurant industry, but they decided to really make their mark in Steveston.” Toronto Star

“A perpetually sunny Steveston room no matter the weather outside or your mood, with inventive Mediterranean inspired food built from fresh and local ingredients.” Vancouver Province

“In the Best of Richmond feature in this paper several weeks ago, Chef Tung placed first in the Best Chef category. As well, Tapenade was honoured and humbled by the fact that the Readers’ Poll placed them first in Best Brunch and Best Fine Dining, second in Best Place to go on a First Date, Best Dessert, Best Place to Take Out-of-Town Guests, and third in Best Wine Selection. Phew. Both Morlet and Tung say that to be honoured in that many categories is a testament to their staff.” Richmond Review

“Tapenade Bistro offers many dishes on par with the haute cuisine of any high-end Vancouver restaurants – but at neighborhood prices.” Vancouver Sun
