Our favorite French restaurant on the Monterey Peninsula. Comfortable and attractive. GREAT French onion soup. A bowl makes for a fine meal. Try it; you'll like it.

I am happy that Fifi's continues to offer delicious French food in a cute atmosphere. Tables are cozy & you feel like you are in a French Bistro. Friends took me to lunch for my birthday and we had a nice corner table. Mussels with fires were absolutely yummy. Both pasta dishes friends had were very good as well. NO... More

We have been to Fifi's about 10 times over 30 years. It is a little restaurant, but the atmosphere inside is extraordinary. The soup is wonderful, and the entrées are out of this world.

When it comes to the food this place is ok, the food is decent, the place gives you the European feel, but the service is nothing special,,,,

Went to Fifi's on a date night and would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting great food, service and a good night out. The food was excellent and the selection of wine was abundant. The wait service were knowledgeable and provided service with a smile.

This is a "go to" restaurant whenever I'm on the Monterey Peninsula. Two friends and I visited the restaurant this past week. We were there on a Thursday night, and several "special" entres were available. Hint: the "Specials" are available on weeknights, and are a great deal for $25. We all ordered the trout, on special that night. The special... More

Although we went mostly for lunch, this became one of our favorite restaurants in the Carmel/Monterey area. The place is unpretentious, but food is excellent, the service impeccable, and the prices reasonable.

At Fifi's,you don't need to worry about nouvelle cuisine with its huge plates with tiny bites on them.The menu here includes old favorites of French (and American ) food: oysters Rockefller, duck a 'l-orange, sweetbreads, Floating Island and other such well-remembered dishes. And this isn't a "cafe" for my money: it's a restaurant, with linens and crystal. Large wine list.... More

My boyfriend I visited this restaurant with friends while spending a week in Monterey. We loved is so much we came back two other times. We didn't have a bad thing there.

We went to Fifi's on a cold, rainy night with some friends. The food and service were good, but we had a hard time staying warm.
