Consistently good and excellent daily specials

Have eaten here many times for decades and simply the most consistently good and reliable midrange restaurant in Rosarito. Great chef and great variety of dishes, all with a nice French flair.

Quality of the food was low. The service was poor. Will not go back ever again. The waiters were arrogant and indolent. Spilled coffee and they didn't offer to serve another.

We are weekenders in Baja and once a month we typically will have one dinner at the bistro. We love their Caesar Salad! All of their dishes are amazing. Wonderful French onion soup!

This was our favorite Rosarito haunt for years. It has slipped a little in the past year. I think there is a new chef.

The best I have had in years. We have been there 5 or 6 times and also order the escargot as an appetizer..... it never disappoints! Everything we have ordered from their menu has been scrumptious. The service is good and the wine list is pretty good too!

I love French Onion Soup. Bistro Le Cousteau has delicious french onion soup. The restaurant is quaint and inviting. Everything is good on the menu, and it is right in the heart of Rosarito. Philippe, the owner is welcoming and charming. A must! The pizza is delicious too. Who would of thought, a french restaurant in Rosarito. :)

This is where I go when I really want to treat myself, usually sharing the experience with special friends and outside with my dog in good weather. I have explored the menu and never been disappointed by the escargot or crepes or any of the entrees, yet I seem to keep going back for whatever type of fresh carpaccio is... More
