1064 – 216th Street, Langley, BC
Advice: Both lunch and dinner are served here, reservations are suggested, on a sunny day request a table on the patio.
After touring the Domaine de Chaberton Estate Winery, my friend Nikki and I were seated on the outside patio overlooking the picturesque vineyard.
This is a French bistro that is in a country like setting with wonderful service in a well-appointed room, patio dining on a sunny day is spectacular.
To Start, Nikki had the Bacchus Salad ($10.95) thin slices of smoked salmon over mixed greens with a Rémoulade sauce and I had the Tomato & Mesclun ($7.95) marinated tomatoes and mixed greens tossed with a grainy mustard and sherry vinaigrette. We both then shared the outstanding Sautéed Prawns à l’Andalouse ($11.95) served in a spicy tomato confit sauce with garlic aioli and pistou crostini along with the Tomato and Brie Tart ($9.95) crisp pastry with vine ripened tomatoes and double cream brie with a drizzle of pistou.
For our Mains, I had the tasty Ruby Trout Filet ($24.95) served on a bed of braised cabbage with white wine, tomatoes and Nikki had the delicious Braised Boneless Short Ribs ($24.95) slow cooked in white wine and tomatoes with olives and mushrooms; we both shared the side dish of potatoes that were smothered in buttery sour cream.
To end our delightful dinner we shared a couple of Desserts, the delish Strawberry Upside Down Cake ($6.95) with vanilla ice cream and the Chocolate Mousse ($6.95) a rich Belgian chocolate mousse with a hazelnut praline croustillant
