Dine like a local on the east side at Euro-style utilitarian bistro Les Faux Bourgeois

Every neighbourhood has one. A spot where the locals hang out. Where the waiters wear jeans and know you by name. Where the food is delectable but not overly priced. Where a small patio and coffee shop beckons, encouraging you to sit and watch the world walk by. Welcome to Les Faux Bourgeois.

“We are a classic utilitarian bistro for the east side of Vancouver,” explains owner Andres Sepelt.

“We are noisy, we are not pretentious and people walk into our restaurant happy, happy we are here.”

What’s not to like about Les Faux Bourgeois? The food is delicious and, when possible, sourced from local farmers and fishermen. The majority of staff at Les Faux Bourgeois, including Sepelt, live in the neighbourhood. And $20 gets you a meal. Be sure to make reservations, this place fills up fast.
