Working at Provence Marinaside

We are a chef owned French/Mediterranean restaurant with a focus on local seafood. Located in Vancouver’s Yaletown district, we’ve been open since 2002, and had a major renovation in 2016. We feature one of the largest wine lists in Vancouver with more than 200 wines available by the glass, and 48 wine taps. We have many of the latest wine preservation systems, and pride ourselves on providing top quality wine service.

Our kitchen combines traditional methods with modern equipment and local ingredients to create our own take on Provençal cuisine. Chef Jean-Francis learned his craft under the tutelage of his mother Suzanne Quaglia, a well known chef in Marseille, before moving to Canada. Having worked under a number of well known chefs in Vancouver, in 1998 Chef Jean Francis opened Provence Mediterranean Grill in Point Grey, and later Provence Marinaside in Yaletown followed by The Wine Bar – an extension of Provence Marinaside.

Many of our staff at Provence and TWB have been here for several years, and we look forward to having you join our little restaurant family.
