At lunch we serve home made quiche, quinoa salad, entrecote steak with fries, club sandwich & Mikael' s famous pies. For desserts you have to try Celine's macarons! We have some classic flavours such as raspberry, pistachio or lemon but if you fancy something different why not try our salted caramel macaron or violet with passion fruit. All our desserts are home made & change daily.

“Excellent food and well served”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Having read the reviews on trip advisor we decided to visit for lunch on valentines day, what can i say that as not already been said! I had the steak frites and the wife had the fish, both where excellent, the steak which was cooked to medium was very tender, unlike the typical steak you receive in Spain this one was very lean , the wife reported the fish being the best she had eaten for some time, the cost was typical bistro but the quality was far superior! To round off our meal we had the valentines day desert (assortment of miniture cakes) with coffee, being french macaroon fans we where positively surprised when these appeared on the plate, home made and the best i have ever eaten.

Service was very friendly and i can highly reccommend if you are in the neighbourhood!

“Good food and very friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013 via mobile

We read the reviews on trip advisor and decided to visit for breakfast on Saturday morning. My wife thinks its the best omelette she has had in Spain and my selection was just as good. The only disappointment was that we had missed the champagne tasting the night before. That won't happen again! We must keep supporting these local independents for the sake of the area. It makes it a better place to live.

“Watch out Roux brothers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic French cafe, serving a great selection of breakfasts, try the 'Celine's Special' as this is too good for words! Lunch is superb and great value along with fantastic wines to beat any top restaurant! The only downside is they are closed on a Monday, otherwise we would be there every day!!! Suppose one has to cook sometimes! Try the Macaroons with a coffee, a small and wonderful treat on any day! Definitely worth a visit even for a quick coffee, everyone is always made welcome as if long lost friends by the owners, Céline & Michael.

“A little gem in the heart of golf valley.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

A great bistro in the middle of aloha with delicious breakfasts, lunches and on selected evenings early dinners. The owners are very welcoming and are great with our children. Looking forward to the omelettes and lattes when we visit again at easter. Keep up the good work and success will follow!

“Rendez Vous Aloha, Marbella”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

What a lovely little French cafe! Run by a charming couple, Mikael and Celine, it is spotless and the food is organic and fresh every day with the most amazing fresh macaroons cooked by them each evening. This is definitely a place that everyone must try on their trip to Marbella. Proper French cooking in a very friendly atmosphere with a sunny terrace in the heart of Nueva Andalucia the golf valley.
