Back in September, it was a birthday month of two of my friends. So, I picked some restaurants and had my friends pick one. They chose Trafalgars Bistro.

It is located in Kitsilano. I have been there for Oceanwise celebration and wondered if their regular menu taste good, too. There is $30 3-course dinner as well, which you can choose one appy from soup, green salad, or caesar salad, one entree, and one dessert from Sweet Obsession where is their sister restaurant at the next door.

I can’t remember what kind of soup it was… But my friend (not only her but we all) didn’t like it and asked to change to the other soup.

Caesar Salad (as a part of 3-course)

I ordered this dish. Although I generally don’t like couscous, this Israeli one is like pasta so that I could eat. It was surprising discovery. 🙂

I ordered this. It was puffy pastry, like hard version of cream puff.

As they have a sister restaurant, Sweet Obsession, there are too many to choose from. I wish they have pictures on menu so that we don’t have to ask for each dessert’s details. 😉

At the beginning of this month, I happened to look at their site and found that there was a spacial dinner for 3rd Annual Oceanwise Celebration at Trafalgars Bistro in Kitsilano. I like seafood and thought 7-course dinner for $65 was good deal, so I emailed to one of my friends if she was interested.

I called them next day for a reservation, and I felt comfortable by talking with them, as I was on guard because I thought the restaurant was not casual. When I asked their dress code and if jeans were OK, she said, make sure the jeans were able to be stretched due to 7-course. 🙂

My friend ordered taster size (2 oz) of wine, and I ordered a glass of wine.

I enjoyed most of them.

Sockeye salmon was little sweet for me. Paella was like soup, which I’m not sure if it was supposed to be. Lobster in the pound cake was big pieces and it was interesting-weird taste. :O

I liked Uni form, though I’m not really a fan of Urchin. I don’t think I ever eat sturgeon before, but it tasted like between sable fish and cod. I just looked up what kind of fish it was, and it was surprising to me!

An extra picture of the restaurant.
