Fraiche

Fraiche is a restaurant located in West Vancouver and is popular for their views of the Lions Gate Bridge and surrounding areas. Their Dine Out this year is $38 and contains 3 courses.

The space isn’t very large. You get the best view when you sit near the window. Perhaps its best to request sitting by the window.

We ordered a few cocktails in the beginning since we got to the restaurant very early. Who knew there would be very little traffic on the Lions Gate Bridge after work.

Even the men had some cocktails too.

All the cocktails were pretty good! A great way to start off the meal, but definitely hurts your wallet afterwards.

Complementary bread comes in 2 varieties – white and an olive bread. We all agreed the olive bread was the best.

Fraiche

Poached Lobster Salad also has melon, jalapeno, and basil. Good amount of lobster, but it was a small salad. I think there were more lobster pieces than greens.

Fraiche

Smoked Onion Veloute has a 63-degree egg in the centre, parmesan, and shimiji.

Fraiche

House-Cured Duck also contains foie gras mousse, blood orange, and brioche. The duck reminded me of prosciutto.

Fraiche

Butter Poached Sole with Truffle also has oyster root, asparagus, and potato.

Fraiche

Roasted Sablefish is on top of brandade dumplings, sunchoke, and topped with a horseradish foam.

Fraiche

White and Dark Chocolate was ok, but didn’t taste super amazing.

Fraiche

Orange Mascarpone was the better dessert, but it wasn’t crazy amazing.

Overall, the view is breathtaking up at Fraiche. The Dine Out menu wasn’t very impressive for the $38 price, but I am sure they bring their A-game on a regular night. The service was very attentive and the staff was helpful in figuring out the menu.
