Do you eat offal? Tongue, liver, tripe, etc?  If you do, you know how good it can be, when prepared by skilled culinary hands, such as the Chefs at Bistro Pastis in Kitsilano.  If not, here is your excuse to jump in with both feet and enjoy.  Enjoy!


Autumn is a wonderful time of year in France; les marchés overflow with stunning produce, there’s a crispness to the air and a golden hue to the light. It’s time for heartier fare to chase away the chill. Our third autumn menu, which runs from November 6th – 18th, includes Chef Tobias Grignon’s variations of an ‘offal’ theme. At only $42 for three courses, it is ‘offally’ good.

Reservations a good idea: On-line: or call us at 604-731-5020.
