La Fantaisie
Housed in a two-storey Victorian building in the heart of Abbotsford, La Fantaisie artfully
combines florist, Cafe & restaurant and function spaces into a welcoming and tactile proposition.
Embracing a layered approach to materials, the venue reflects the beauty and fragility of the
historic site. Burnished concrete floors, exposed-truss ceilings, raked render and troweled
brick walls create a textural backdrop, drawing focus to the striking articulation of floristry
and café benches. Custom carved from solid blush-toned marble, the bench’s scalloped
profile is a creative hallmark of the space, complemented by linen drapery and tiered flower
displays that define a series of dining settings in timber and cognac leather. Upstairs, a
brass-lined cocktail bar and open function room craft a captivating setting for special events.

    Great atmosphere. Very beautiful. Signature drinks are lovely and very instagrammable. My group were place in a very tight corner despite other tables being available and booking ahead. Food was ok but everything looked really nice. The waiter we had was wonderfully honest about which dishes were better than others and we appreciate this. There was a change in menu that morning and so we taste tested!

    Would recommend, food was excellent. The pancakes in particular were great. It was quiet when I went but the way the tables are set out is a bit squishy. I can imagine it might not be a comfortable vibe if it was really busy. But enjoyed it overall, good food and drink and is very aesthetically pleasing.

    Lovely place with great ambience and even better food. Tasty and charming food prepared with care and great tasting. The sign of a good menu is when it is hard to choose what to order and then have food envy no matter what you choose! We were upstairs which is a great space for functions and quiet enough for our large group to easily hear each other.

    Amazing experience, Jia (the wonderful owner) was so accommodating, generous and so lovely! He gave us a really pretty table and had a lovely chat with us before and after our visit. He accommodated our 15min late arrival when we called to let him know we’d be running late, and suggested some close parking spots. Cassie (the girl who served us) was so kind, she took lots of photos of us and was so patient and had a beautiful personality. She made sure our food arrived quickly and gave us pretty flowers to pop on our table. The food tasted really nice and the prices were quite reasonable. Highly recommend, will definitely visit again! Thank you Jia and staff!

    The food was beautifully presented and it tasted deliciously fresh. The blue crab chillie scramble is a must have. Done forget to order yourself a refreshing rose tea latte whilst your at it. Bravo to La Fantaisie and it’s excellent service. I hope to bring my friends back the next time I visit.
