Gotta go.

We try to get to Rosarito once a year. Bistro Le Cousteau is restaurant we plan our visit around. Been going since 2003.

We would love to give more stars but the experience lacked a little umph. Highlight was the Greek salad - absolutely delicious and a meal in itself. Everything else was uninspired. For example, a French restaurant that serves margarine instead of butter with the bread...just something not quite right about that.

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.

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.

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. :)
