the wait was long, the dining room was hot with no view, except mirrors, & small. Who wants to look at themselves in a mirror, except perhaps a teen-ager? The food was nothing special. the price was too high for what you get. if each meal was 1/2 the price, it might have been acceptable. I'd recommend to the Hotel... More

We have stayed here twice for the Coronado Speed Festival and have loved it both times. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff is friendly & helpful and the bistro food is excellent. The cookies in the lobby are delicious! I would highly recommend this establishment to anyone looking for an affordable, quality stay on Coronado Island.

We love this little restaurant for breakfast. I had Artichoke Joe's and my husband had the Denver Omelet. Both are excellent.

We had a great breakfast at a reasonable price. Seating is limited so give yourself some extra time. It is right in front of the Hotel and only 10 yards from the free Coronado shuttle.

The chef is wonderful here and more than willing to talk to the guests. The food is very good........good menu selection! The only drawback here is wine and beer only! All good and service is attentive!

We stopped in to visit the Bistro because we were curious about the property. The restaurant is cozy and within an easy walk of the main shopping area. The bulk of the dinner entrees were $20 or less; the food was very well prepared. The restaurant is dog-friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to come here again!

We visited Coronado for the first time recently and my daughter selected Crown Bistro for breakfast. One of the favorite meals of the trip. The Lemon Poppyseed pancakes were absolutely delicious. I think my daughter literally licked the plate the sauce was that good. She was concerned that 6 silver dollar pancakes would be too small a serving, my son... More
