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).

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...

I had a blackened smoked turkey sandwich and my wife had the french dip, mine was great, hers was better ...and after tasting mine I didn't think... More

We've been dining here for years. They went through a rough patch a while back but seem to be back on track. Today we had great service and delicious food. I love the new omlete choices. I had fig and prosciutto and my husband enjoyed crab and shrimp. A little pricier than previously but did not disapoint.

Arrived on a quiet evening to be greeted by a sullen youth who made no effort to make us feel welcome. He seemed void of personality & almost made us walk away at this early point in our visit. Once seated we were served by a charming young lady & had delicious French food. The Croque Monsieur was massive &... More
