We have been enjoying eating at Victor's restaurant for over 20 years. Last night he opened for dinner for the season. He did not disappoint. Fabulous meal! Expanded menu. The chicken cordon bleu was so tender and flavourful. Will be my new favourite. Gracias to Gurillmo for outstanding service. And to top off the meal, Victor's famous home made flan!... More

What great menu choices! The hotcakes were very good with a serving of fruit on the side. The Croque Monsieur and Croque Madame were delicious hits with my family. We had breakfast here twice. The portions are very large for breakfast. I think my husband and I could share an order and have plenty. Service is very good. We will... More

If you're staying "in town" on Isla then there's no better place for breakfast within walking distance. Had several during our stay and enjoyed each! But most of all, really appreciated the personal, sincerely caring service of the owner and staff. Will definitely return and recommend that you do!

We have been coming here for years, at least 7 visits, and won't stop. This is one of the best breakfast joints on the island. Come to try there fare and you will know what I mean. Baked goods or fresh fruits, it's all good!

My wife was in a mood for crepes, so we took a table out in front of this cheerful cafe so we could catch what breeze there was. We started with coffee and tea, and my wife ordered the fresh fruit crepes with maple cream (75 pesos) while I selected the Croque Monsieur (80 pesos), which is essentially a fancy... More

I've been here many times over the past ten years, and always enjoyed the experience. My favorite here is the lobster, but I haven't been disappointed by anything I've tried here, and the service has always been excellent! I can't wait to go back this winter!

We happened into Bistro Francais when we were looking for a breakfast spot. The name of the restaurant wasn't really anywhere so we thought it would be more Mexican style breakfast. When we looked at the menu we almost left but we had already ordered coffee so we decided to stick it out. I had the croquet madame with scrambled... More

Whenever we are wanting a great Canadian breakfast we go the Bistro. We have eaten there over a dozen times and never been disappointed. We have never gone for an evening meal even though it was on our "try" list last trip for their lobster dinner.

We have been going to the French Bistro for about 11 years and have always been pleased with the food and service. We often have breakfast on our way to the beach. Some favorites are the French toast and fruit and yogurt. Victor is very nice and his staff are great.
