Description: La Cigale, a Taste of the Mediterranean has had a rebirth in downtown Delray Beach, Florida. Just south of busy Atlantic Avenue on Federal Highway you will be swept away to the sights and smells of the Mediterranean Coastline. Think of the French Riviera, Morocco, Greece, Italy and delight in the cuisines of each.

“Again a nice meal at this charming restaurant with great decor.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Quiet and romantic if that's what you arelooking for, a great martini, and the dinner was excellent, for both my and my fried. Try the grilled shrimp provencale you won't be disappointed. This is my second time eating there, and I'll return again. They are featuring different food from different countries every other week during the summer.

“French flair”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

First time here and found a new favorite.
The service was excellent as was the food. Paella with a French twist, and as a duck lover I could not have been happier with my meal. With the owner coming around and greeting everyone, to the very attentive staff, a great experience.

“Best Meal In A While!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

FANTASTIC experience. Treated like gold from the beginning. Alex, the man at valet, took our keys and thanked us for coming, and said he was at our service. What a nice thing to say! We were graciously greeted by the charming owner, who my husband enjoys speaking with in French. We had Nicole as our waitress again, which I was happy about. She is so sweet and professional. The foie gras is the best I have had in the U.S. Wonderful duck and sea bass, and the molten chocolate cake is to die for. If you want fabulous food with five star service, this is the place to go!

“Too much, too spicy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

The good thing about the dining room is that it has a separate small dining room that is quieter than the main dining room. So request this small dining room if you do not like shouting during dinner. The menu is attractive with its Mediterranean touch. We ordered the calamari as a starter and they were so spicy that their natural taste was completely overwhelmed. The waiter very nicely offered to replace them by a less spicy version which was better but so copious that it was a full meal. The paella was good but not outstanding. Our friend ordered the Moules Marinieres which she liked. The service was good and attentive. Complimentary valet parking on site is available.
