Lovely lunch at this location on a beautiful sunny day in White Rock.
Worst food in White Rock
Service was good but not enough to overcome bad food
We had a meal that was not very good. We have been to Jan’s before....and thought we would try it again. We had a Taste of White Rock offering that featured scallops wrapped in smoked ham/prosciutto. The meat overpowered the scallops....and the scallops were overdone to the point of being dry. It was such a massive mistake that it soured the evening. We really want th beach restaurants to succeed....and give them all at least a couple of chances...however...this was such a miss that I doubt we would return on our own.
A lovely way to spend an evening with friends. Attentive service.
I picked the restaurant based on the Taste Of White Rock featured menu. It looked amazing. My friend and I had a 6:30pm seating time for a Saturday nite. The baby shrimp and roasted veggie stuffed trout I had planned to order was already sold out this early in the evening. Extremely disappointing. The chicken dish we end up ordering my friend didn't like, and we both thought the spaetzle was tastless and a very mushy texture. The waitress was friendly but seemed bit inexperienced. Asking if we're ready for bill before we had even gotten our dessert which was part of the 3 course meal and not asking if we wanted coffee or tea either with the dessert.
Overall we both weren't impressed.
Jan and her staff always serve up an excellant meal and making the experience enjoyable!
Jan’s is my favorite White Rock/South Surrey restaurant. This small restaurant has great food and excellent service. And if you need Gluten-Free options, there is no place better in the Vancouver area—you can even order GF fish and chips, what a treat. Ambiance is great with a charming European bistro flare and original art on the walls. Attention to detail is evident in quality ingredients, and thoughtful service, right down to individual cloth towels in the powder room. Moderate prices, not at all expensive, and a super waterfront location in White Rock near the Pier. Highly recommend for get together with friends and couples dining. I have ate there as a single as well and was perfectly welcomed.
We go here often. Food is awesome chefs cook in the open and are flexible for special requirements. No Prima Donna. Recommend it for anytime especially because it is not chain store.
We had a wonderful evening celebrating my hubby's birthday at Jan's. The food never disappoints and Jan and her staff make you feel welcome. Always consider a special as they try out new ideas that have been a wonderful taste experience.
The halibut special and the Moroccan lamb chops were absolutely delicious! The accompanying risotto was to die for! We enjoyed the service and the view as well. We'll definitely be back.
My friend and I hadn't seen each other for a few months, so decided to go to Jan's for a catch-up visit. My friend had a gorgeous salad and I had the baked brie. Everything was delicious, our table was on the patio, and the sun blessed us with warmth! We both loved it and will be going back to Jan's! It's a gourmet experience 👍❤🌞 Sorry, we didn't take pictures.
They do not book with Open Table anymore so they did not have our reservation. Luckily they were able to fit us in. Not sure why we were able to make a reservation with them on Open Table if they're not using it.
Online booking took about 16 hours to get confirmation email
I was turned away for very odd reasons. The hostess told me my name wasn't in the reservation list. There was a lot of tables open but she still turned us away stating there it would take at least 40 min until she would serve us. She was blonde with a gap tooth I believe.
My wife's meal she said was excellent she had the sea food linguine it had lots of sea food in it . I had the ribs they were made by Jan( not pre made out sourced ) and she has a yummy rib sauce. The ribs were over cooked on a couple end pieces but overall were good. The view was amazing and the staff were friendly. We asked for a very specific table for our reservation and when we got there they had exactly what we asked for.. Thx Jan and staff we had a very nice time
