Continental with a strong French influence balanced by Baja imagination. Daily specials always offer great variety in meats, poultry and seafood invariably accompanied by outsanding sauces of a master sous chef. Low key casual atmosphere, not at all pretencious and very attentive service. Ample portions, all done to perfection. A sure fire enjoyable experience every one of more than 50... More

Some of the best escargot in Mexico. French, American and Italian cuisine all delicious. I've had most everything on the menus save the fish. Lamb and filet mignon are my favorite entrees. Salads are always crisp. The crepes are delicious and go from vegetarian to ham, to chicken to shrimp. Prices are reasonable. For example $10 for twelve snails. The... More

We would love to give more stars but the experience lacked a little umph. Highlight was the Greek salad - absolutely delicious and a meal in itself. Everything else was uninspired. For example, a French restaurant that serves margarine instead of butter with the bread...just something not quite right about that.

Quality of the food was low. The service was poor. Will not go back ever again. The waiters were arrogant and indolent. Spilled coffee and they didn't offer to serve another.

Have eaten here many times for decades and simply the most consistently good and reliable midrange restaurant in Rosarito. Great chef and great variety of dishes, all with a nice French flair.

We are weekenders in Baja and once a month we typically will have one dinner at the bistro. We love their Caesar Salad! All of their dishes are amazing. Wonderful French onion soup!
