Upcoming Events

EARTHWISE SOCIETY’S 6TH ANNUAL HEIRLOOM TOMATO FEST

Join Chef Jean-Francis at Earthwise Society’s free 6th Annual Heirloom Tomato Fest. Located at the Earthwise Garden on August 20th at 1:00p, Chef Jean-Francis will demonstrate how to make one of his favourite dishes from our Heirloom Tomato menu – the Tomato and Nectarine Salad with whole grilled Argentinian prawns, red onion, fresh basil, and sherry vinaigrette. Get there early to see all the chef’s in action.

Heirloom Vegetarian Restaurant, One20 Public House, and Beach Grove Golf Club’s chefs will also be showing their love for the tomato. After an afternoon on the farm, watching these amazing chef’s work with local heirloom tomatoes, you’re sure to be hungry.

Please join us at Provence Marinaside and try our 3 course Heirloom Tomato menu, where you can sample JF’s delicious Tomato and Nectarine Salad, or one of the other great options.

Carnaval del Sol

On July 9 at 4pm Chef Sheldon will be on stage at the Travel Plaza at Carnaval Del Sol as part of the Chef’s del Sol Cooking Show. He will be teaching you how to prepare Grilled Halibut with Smoked Heirloom Tomato Vinaigrette. Come early and check out some of the performers, artists and vendors.

If after seeing Chef Sheldon’s demonstration, you don’t feel confident making this halibut dish yourself, you can always come try our Heirloom Tomato Menu, and our kitchen team can prepare it for you. The Heirloom Tomato menu runs for the month of August.

Carnival Del Sol takes place in the parking lot at 88 Pacific Boulevard – where the Cirque du Soleil big top usually sets up.

Join our mailing list to keep up with all the latest news at Provence Marinaside.

Canada Day

We may be a French restaurant, but we’re all Canadian at heart. As an immigrant to Canada, Chef Jean-Francis has a soft spot for people trying to make their home in a new country. With that in mind, we have people from all over the world working in both our kitchen and dining room.

With so many people from different cultures and backgrounds working closely together, in a high stress environment, we’re bound to pick up a few idiosyncrasies from around the world. We like to think that’s a part of what makes us all Canadians. As a nation, we have a long history of welcoming people from around the world and celebrating the things that make us different while embracing just how much we are all the same.

If you’re out and about (or as the Americans think we say “oot and aboot”) on Canada Day why not join us for brunch or dinner and raise a glass to the diversity that makes us all Canadian.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost 20 years since this little gem made the rounds and gave us all a reason to feel proud to be Canadian.

I am Provence and I am Canadian!

Fishy Fun with Poisson d’Avril

Once again, it’s time for fishy fun with Poisson d’Avril at Provence Marinaside. Get your sea-legs, and join us for a special 3 course menu dedicated to the bounty of the ocean. Between the chef’s heritage in Marseille, and our location here on the west coast, Chef Jean-Francis feels it is his duty to offer you the best of the sea. This year’s 3-course menu ($57) comes with two optional wine pairings for you to choose from; Stay local with our Canadian wine pairing priced at $30 or venture to the Old World with our pairing priced at $35. These are also available in petite sizes at $18 or $20 respectively for those who prefer a smaller portion.

SMOKED PACIFIC COD BRANDADE

Begin your ocean voyage with the fresh tangy taste of Seabream Carpaccio with lemon Dijon vinaigrette paired with either McWatters White Meritage (BC) or our new Gruner Smaragd from Domane Wachau (AUT). If our Carpaccio doesn’t do it for you, reel in the Smoked Pacific Cod Brandade with mixed greens, or the Rustique Soupe de la Mer – a chowder like soup filled with a bounty of flavours from the sea.

NIÇOISE SALAD PROVENÇAL

From BC’s own Lois Lake Steelhead to the whole Mediterranean Fish we have something that is sure to appeal to everyone. Making its yearly return for the summer season is the crowd favourite Nicoise Salad Provençal with local albacore tuna which matches excellently with either Moon Curser’s Arneis (BC) or Favorita from Fratelli Alessandria (ITA).

Once you’ve finished with your fishing trip, delight yourself with a dip in our regular dessert menu. And of course, just like last year you will have an opportunity to go fishing in our special fishbowl filled with special prizes from the absurd to the extravagant.
