Le Crocodile


Recommended Posts

A truly lovely experience, just a I anticipated, having been there before. We started with cocktails, a Negroni for me, a French 75 for one daughter and something with passion fruit for the other daughter. We all had the lobster bisque to start which was accompanied by a perfect cheese straw. I could live on the bisque I am quite sure. (We were all still talking about it the next morninig.) One daughter and I had the Beef Wellington which was the Chef's special of the evening. It was the most delicious, perfectly prepared piece of beef I have had in quite some time. My other daughter had prawns served with angel hair pasta. What the sauce was escapes me at the moment, but apparently it was "absolutely delicious." No room for dessert but we were served a complimentary pear sorbet with Poire Williams and of course the crocodile chocolates. The service was impeccable but not pretentious. Would not hesitate to recommend Le Crocodile, should you find yourself in Vancouver. We had breakfast at Breka where the assortment of pastries both savory and sweet is mind boggling. My daughter who is a nurse had an early shift and couldn't join us but I had ham and swiss melt on a wonderful croissant, my daughter had a chipoltle chicken puff pastry. London Fogs for both of us. It was a grand evening all together.

Aw, sounds like a lovely time with your daughters and the food looks lovely. What breads did they serve? The bisque sounds dreamy. 

There were two types of bread, a dense, seeded one and some baguette. The bisque alone is worth the trip.
