"Classic Dishes at Bistro Pastis."

-Richard Wolak, Vancouver Foodster 

“Elegant French bistro with a lightness of being. A jewel.”

-Mia Stainsby, The Vancouver Sun



“Understated manner, consistently excellent dishes make Pastis stand out …Pastis can do no wrong.”

-Tim Pawsey, The Vancouver Courier 


“No need to fly to Paris for real steak tartar and pommes frites…

John Blakeley has raised bistro dining a notch since opening

Pastis in 1999.”

-Northwest Palate Magazine


“Fine little room … is now established with an ever-growing wine list and a graceful, bistro-style menu … service sparkles under owner John Blakeley.”

-Jamie Maw, Vancouver Magazine


“High-end French bistro fare in remarkable relaxed, elegant

surroundings, with surprisingly reasonable prices given the

calibre of the cuisine.”

-Robin Mines, The WestEnder


“Be warned. It’s very easy to become a regular.”

-Andre LaRiviere, The Georgia Straight


“Some of the happiest memories of my life were spent in rural France …Pastis both draws on and transcends this vision of French country life.”

-James Barber, The Vancouver Sun



“The five-course tasting menu is a bargain, and with Blakeley’s expertly chosen wines – a commendable slate of 50 wines by the glass – for an additional $25, it’s an outright steal.”

-Jeremy Ferguson, The Globe and Mail
