Good Food in Mendocino

This is considered one of the better restaurants in Mendocino. We had both lunch and dinner. For lunch we had the cheese plate, Salade Nicoise, and the very good gazpacho soup from heirloom tomatoes -- literally a Caprese Salad in a bowl. The cheeses were probably local, and the wines were also... read more

We are locals who have enjoyed the Beauj over the years, but are sad to say it is not what it was. We took friends there a few weeks ago, and not one of us had a good meal!!! The fish was overcooked, the lamb stringy and tough. The service is still lovely and the setting charming, but I hope... More

Dinning at Cafe Beaujolais was a wonderful way end a day of sight seeing around Mendocino. The small dinning room is in a victorian house with all it"s charm adds to the fine dinnig experience. The staff was very attentive and friendly. We brought in a bottle of wine we had purchased at a local winery to accompany our meal.... More

If you consider a meal at Cafe Beaujolais from the perspective of what you can reasonably expect from a restaurant in a town this size, then it's really very good. It's a nice room with polite servers, a refined atmosphere, a great wine list, and a sophisticated menu. If, on the other hand, you were to judge Cafe Beaujolais by... More

The menu was varied and filled with gourmet food. The service was attentive and knowledgeable, and the kitchen staff was skilled. I though my fish was overcooked, particularly compared with the fabulous fish I had at the Lark Creek Grill for a fraction of the price in the SFO airport, and the greens were woefully overcooked and soggy. The duck... More

We chose to visit this restaurant because of the recommendation of our innkeeper, and we are glad that we did. We were promptly seated even though we arrived a bit early. The restaurant is located in an old house on a side street in the beautiful little town of Mendocino. The staff was friendly and courteous, the dinner was wonderful,... More

Quaint little Bistro in a renovated 1900s home. Tables are packed together so you can smell your neighbor's dinner, but when in Paris ... Food was farm-to-fork fresh and the staff was engaging and honest. When we asked our waitress her favorite between two entrees, she correctly steered us to a wonderful meal. A bit pricey, but worth a special... More

Great food (foie gras, steak tartare, fresh seafood), excellent service, local wines and a lovely setting in an old home. Note: Mendocino map has it in the wrong location!

Well what can I say... The Beauteous is one of our all time favorites. We ALWAYS have at least one evening there when we stay at The Little River Inn Book your reservations early.
