You have to try the French Toast. As others have written, best EVER! Husband had the Croques Madame and loved that also. Bacon was a little weird (extremely thin and very uniform in shape--seemed pressed). Anyways, it tasted o.k. The mixed side of fruit on the plate was also very nice. Waiter was the most delightful man...

We love going to the French Bistro for breakfast. It is always delicious, and much more food than you need. The fruit is always fresh. French Toast and Ham Omelet are incredible. Our girls love the bird in there too!! Super sweet staff.

A must every year. Great meal. Great Price. Great Service. Pasta is the best. Lots of spices and veggies included. Huge Shrimp. Fun place to sit, eat and watch the world go by!

Me and my husband came here almost every morning for breakfast! The workers were all very sweet and greeted us with a smile! Their french toast was probably the best I've ever had and I ordered it 3 days straight! It was also nice to watch their beautiful parrot while we ate! We are going back to Isla next year... More

We are there two days in a row and had an excellent breakfast both times. Fresh food prepared perfectly. The Croques Madame was our favorite. The owner obviously takes a lot of pride in this place...as well he should. We'll be back.

We had dinner here recently, upon our friends request. Yum, it was wonderful! I ordered the fresh fish, and it came with rice, and veggies. The drinks were good, and the owner, he was so sweet!

Good overall. French inspired, with a bit of Mexican influence. My Croque Madam tasted very nice, but wasn't quite like those I had in France.

Nice place, open to the street. Excellent service, nice menu of French food. We ate here for breakfast and everything was tasty and nicely prepared. We never went for dinner but the menu looks very good.
