I have been several times to Café Beau Soleil and we always have great service and great food. I was there the other week celebrating a friends birthday. My friends had never been there and they loved it. The menu is so good and they have a great sol and coq au vin and an excellent wine menu.

It was very cold and snowy back east so I was truly enjoying the California sunshine, made even better by grabbing a patio table at Cafe Beau Soliel. Had the crab cake sandwich and a glass of wine. Very nice. Went back and did it again the next day.

I can't say enough about Cafe Beau Soleil, it is our all time favorite french cafe for several years. While the service varies from good to very pleasing, the food never disappoints plus their prices are quite reasonable. It's a relaxed place that we go to meet our friends or relatives.

I meant to stop by and grab a quick lunch during the busy holiday season. For some reason, I had never visited this restaurant before even though I am frequently at Fashion Island (perhaps mall restaurants don't intrigue me enough). What I thought would be a sandwich & soup lunch turned into a very unique and surprising event. Shortly after... More

I've had lunch at this restaurant many times with various friends and it's always a delight. A friend and I enjoyed a yummy lunch of french onion soup and Salmon with a glass of wine. A strawberry crepe with Nutello was our dessert with cappuccinos. It was a perfect meal for a chilly afternoon. The service is excellent and it's... More

liked their quick bit soup & sandwiches - the mozzarella, tomato panini sandwich was quite tasty & the hot soup on a cold wintery afternoon did the trick.

We have eaten many times at Cafe Beau Soleil and find it the perfect lunch spot for a great meal on the patio. Great crepes, my favorite is the Crepe Complete, as well as the Nicoise salad and on a colder day the Coq Au Vin. Also some very well priced French wines. Can't beat this for a reasonably priced...
