Cafe Beau Soleil gives a fairly modest feeling of France, with some decent French wines, a few French dishes (the escargots were very good), and French service (slow, but more polite than you sometimes find in Paris). Settings were nice, but paper table covering detracted a bit. Nice to have opens of sitting outside, sitting halfway outside, or sitting inside.... More

This cafe has some typical French cafe dishes with some local twists. Food and service was for the most part very good. The menu has fairly good variety, and I would like to come for breakfast some time to try some of those items. No draft beer but some excellent bottled beers. The wines by the glass seemed to be...

Loved the Duo of Beet and onion soup. Kids liked the hot chocolate. Bread was good and came with yummy jam. Dessert crepes were righteous and the service was top notch. We will be back, perhaps next time for breakfast. Highly recommend.

This is a great place for breakfast, lunch, or a quick afternoon coffee. Dinner is also served. The outdoor patio is lovely.

I came across Beau Soleil on a rainy day, where I was looking for something easy, what I found was something much more! The menu is easy and simply, ranging from a burger to lamb shank (A Must Try). The staff has never fallen short on being prompt, polite and attentive. In short, this is someplace I can recommend for... More

Date night with an exciting movie followed by a quick trip down the escalator to a fun French cafe. Great duo. Ordered a lovely pale blush Rose. Now you are in France. We sat outside and watch strolling shoppers while we dined. They have an amazing 2 Avocado halves salad. One is heaped with tuna and the other egg curry... More

The Cafe is adjoined to American Rag Cie away from the majority of the restaurants at Fashion Island so it may well go unnoticed by many if you do not know about this little gem. Very quaint, delicious food and our server was very lovely complete with a french accent which made it so much better. Warm, cozy atmosphere and... More

We came here for lunch on a Sunday to meet a friend and her family who are visiting from Arizona . The weather was perfect so we opted for outside sitting and also because my other friend brought her dog with her. We had a reservation as this place gets filled up really quickly. I ordered the crab and shrimp... More
