Nestled in the heart of Surrey, the Old Surrey Restaurant is the culinary life force of fine dining this side of the Fraser.
The Old Surrey Restaurant, founded in 1975 by Spain native Valentine Aguirre, serves up fresh, inspired dishes with local ingredients including lamb and veal from the family's Chilliwack farm.
From the complimentary fresh baguette and amuse bouche right through to the Caesar Salad or flambeed Crepes Suzette, prepared tableside, your classically French dining experience will be a night to remember.
The Aguirre's have created a standard of excellence, not only in the kitchen but also in their service, which combines the perfect blend of sophistication and comfort.
Since 2007 the Old Surrey has been in the capable hands of Aguirre's youngest son Philip, who spent a year in France mastering his culinary skill and perfecting the traditional recipes that never fail to impress.
The familiar Newton house, white with green gables, has been a part of Surrey's heritage since 1918, when pioneer Lew Jack, a local grocer, built the residence on an old logging camp for his growing family.
Decades later and the library and lounge of the former Jack home are just two of the unique dining rooms that make every meal at the Old Surrey a special event.
Then and always the Old Surrey is an essential part of Surrey's landscape - historically, physically, socially.

The Old Surrey Restaurant is now celebrating its 46th year in operation. The Big Red evolved from the traditional Prix Fixe menu which started back in 2008 to commemorate the anniversary of the restaurant. Focusing on special occasions the restaurant is always trying to help create memories for its customers. The simplicity of a big red bottle of wine, a great meal and some conversation can lead to some of the most memorable moments.
