We stopped to eat here the morning after we had eaten breakfast at a cafe and got very slow service. The service was much better here. Our server was friendly and informative of the menu and their specials. We got tomato juice and orange juice (both freshly made) with my wife's entree being eggs, bacon and toast, and mine a...

We had breakfast it was ok. Better then ok it was good. They have a cool parrot you can play with. It's the name that bothers me. They have no French food. Yes they have a Croque Madame. That makes you a French restaurant? Only breakfast and lunch. Even the decor is distinctly non French .

We were happy to be back on Isla and to get to eat breakfast at the French bistro. Victor and his staff do a wonderful job and his french toast is to die for!!!

Great coffee and eggs. Fruit plate was okay but small. Toast was good. Service was fast. I've only had breakfast here so far.

We were headed for another restaurant which was closed and decided to try this bistro for lunch. We are glad we did. The girls had the lobster and shrimp, we had the snapper prepared different ways. Everything was very fresh and cooked perfect. The service was impeccable and the place was clean and nice. We enjoyed meeting the resident parrot,... More

Just wanted a bagel with cream cheese...decided to try their bagel with cream cheese and green pepper and garlic. Wow, a special treat! Bagel nicely toasted, warm with just the right amount of cream cheese, green pepper and garlic. Coffee was good and plentiful. Excellent service and WiFi.

If you want to splurge a bit, the lobster and shrimp combo is the best ever. For $220 pesos (about $14.00 U.S.) I had two small lobster tails and five large shrimp, along with a baked potato, rice, vegetables, bruschetta, and a huge margarita. It definitely was better in February when the lobster was fresh, but it still was very... More
