“COULD BE BETTER”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

We used to visit more often. Food tasted better and more unique. Service is still friendly, the outdoor seating convenient, and we like the European atmosphere.

“A hidden treasure in Newport Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

We live in the San Francisco bay area but enjoys visiting OC annually for over a decade. Café Beau Soleil is THE one place that we always come to enjoy lunch or dinner at least once during every trip and so far we have never been disappointed. I highly recommend this place to anyone who appreciates wonderful unpretentious good food. Combined with their warm, friendly service and reasonable prices, this place is Newport's hidden treasure!

“Un Repas Delicieux”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Cafe Beau Soleil reminds me of a petit cafe in Provence. The ambiance, especially of the outdoor seating area, was quite enjoyable and relaxing. The menu had a nice variety of meals at a reasonable price. Three of us ate lunch at the cafe, each of us ordering something different; all meals were delicious! This is a cafe/restaurant to which we will return and then dream about going to France.

“A Little Bistro in Newport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

Sitting on the patio sipping wine reminded me of the Paris bistros. The two beet appetizer with goat cheese is perfection. The ahi tuna entree was very good although not exceptional. The flourless chocolate cake was well worth the calories. The general manager Pascal makes
sure your experience is a very good one. Bourjour!

“Great For Breakfast Too”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Whenever we are in Orange County we try to breakfast here at least once. It is a very authentic French Bistro with a pleasant patio in Fashion Island. The Breakfast menu is very nice and the French Toast as you would expect is fabulous. Very nice service as well.
