$5 for most appetizers, champagne cocktails and beer. Delicious food and beautifully prepared. A great place to relax and watch the shoppers go by. Happy hour is M-F, 2-5 p.m.

After reading a few positive reviews, I decided to try for a french bistro experience in the heart of the Newport Beach Fashion Island Mall. I ordered Tuna Nicoise salad and pommes frites. I got salad topped unceremoniously with with DRY canned tuna. The pommes frites were cold french fries. Definitely not worth the trip. Nice outdoor eating area though.

Had a delightful Mother's Day brunch at Cafe Beau Soleil today. The Cafe is located by Nordstroms in Fashion Island, right off the parking structure. The restaurant is small and outside the front of American Rag. My daughter had their beet salad and the ahi stack. My husband had the huevos ranchero and I had the crab and shrimp omelette.... More

My wife and I were in Newport Beach, and traveling with our dog. We wanted a nice glass of wine, a light dinner, and to have our dog by our side. Cafe Beau Soleil did great. Couldn't ask for a better setting, and friendly atmosphere.

Champagne, charcuterie, cheese and charm! That's Cafe Beau Soleil! I feel like I am sitting at a sidewalk cafe in Nice or Paris. The food is excellent and wonderfully French. The service is attentive and gentile. The GM, Pascal, is very hands on and checks in on the tables, giving insight into the menu items and their preparations. The Dover... More

We've been back from Paris about 6 weeks and can't wait to return. In the meantime we went back to an old favorite here in Fashion Island. We sat next to an old oil painting of the typical Parisian cafés. We asked for "gas" and were obliged along with a nice French red. We aren't bread eaters and didn't ask... More

Food was good and some even authentic french food. We picked it because they are very accomodating to our furry friends, try the champagne cocktails they are yummy too!

After 30 minutes, started to feel like in France, excellent service, very reasonable prices, quality authentic French food and crepes. Found out about my terrible French language capabilities. Merci Beaucoup 😊
