This was a good find. We were in town for a quick visit and a local told us about this great little place. Skeptical about French in Rosarito? For sure. We walked into a little retail place that looked almost like a cabin inside. The lighting inside was wonderful and the atmosphere was very cozy. The service was friendly and... More

The place is clean and quaint. Great atmosphere. The service was excellent and food was phenomenal. Great wine list. Our entire table was thrilled with their meals. I had a fresh yellowfin tuna steak extra rare with a peppercorn gravy over it. I'm still thinking about it. Don't miss this one.

Very cool restaurant. Chef is from France and has a consistently great menu. Oso Buco, clamari, escargot and great salads. You'll pay a little more than other's close by but the ambiance and service is excellent and I have always had great meals and good service.

This was one of my two favorite restaurants in Rosarito along with Susanna's. This restaurant has upscale food. I know that it seems crazy to have French food in Rosarito but it was all very good. The waitresses could not have been nicer. We were their last customers yet they never made us feel rushed. It is just a few... More

Le Bistro Cousteau has never failed us. We have eaten there maybe four or five times and the food has always been fabulous. A fascinating mixture of cultures and cuisines, dishes are a little French, a little Mexican, a little Spanish, and more. We had the Corn Soup with Huitlacoche, which was delicious, and the Coco Curry Shrimp (regular menu)... More

A very nice wine selection is offered.. but... nope.. still not the best part. Great appetizers.. French onion soup.. ( good.. but definitely not the... More

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

I went to this place to have dinner with a few friends we ordered a pizza, salads etc.. And after waiting for an hour we asked the waiter how much longer it would take then he had realized he had taken our pizza to another table so he tried to take the pizza away from the other table and give...
