If I could give this place more than five stars, I would. Out of all my travels and favorite food (from Cali over to New York and tons of spots in between), this hands down takes the top spot. From the soup, to the salad...to the bread and pasta- I can’t rave enough. The courtyard, the service, the scenery, the food- all fantastic. I can’t wait to go back.More

My companion and I went for dinner and the food was very good, service also very good. We both had the seafood melange, which was 3 different kinds of fish each with its own different sauce, plus whipped cilantro potato and carrots. Every piece was...delicious. My companion's Caesar salad was excellent; my garden salad just ok. Rolls just ok. My companion had a specialty cocktail that was delicious. I would definitely return to this location for dinner. I especially liked that it was fairly quiet so you could have conversation, and we never felt rushed by the staff.More

If you're in the area it's a MUST. If I lived in Cocoa, Florida I would be obese, I would eat a Café Margaux every day!!! The food is absolutely delicious--the manager and servers are top notch. Simple raspberry ice tea, refreshing one of the...best I've ever had, The pistachio crusted goat cheese salad was perfect. The rack of lamb was a generous portion, and again, perfectly cooked. To the haters who hated the tomato bisque, you're wrong, very wrong. This is the way tomato bisque is done, and it was done to perfection. Oh and dessert : The chocolate cake and whip cream, don't say no!More

Very friendly staff, and an outstanding Pasta Primavera. Although the pasta dish was worth coming back for, I wish they would offer a couple more plant-based options, for those who prefer to eat more green. They are primarily a French restaurant with an emphasis on...being a steak house, and could possibly benefit from offering a couple grilled portobello mushrooms, and/or Cauliflower Steak with a potato side, and sautéed veggies. Or possibly a Lentil dish?More

We stopped in for lunch & were not disappointed. Servers were professional, friendly, & prompt with their team approach. Both the seafood special & quiche exceeded our expectations. Both dishes contained generous portions and were cooked to perfection. Fine dining at midrange prices. We will...be back when we return to the area.More

We came to Cafe Margaux for my wife’s birthday while on vacation. It was our second trip to Cafe Margaux and it did not disappoint. The service was splendid and the food was spectacular. I got the fish special with 3 different varieties of fish....I couldn’t decide which I liked the best since there were all very good. My wife got the filet. I can’t wait to come back again to try something else.More

Once again, we had a wonderful lunch at Cafe Margaux and their menu for Valentine’s Day was awesome and the service was the best we’ve ever had there. We’ve been there many times. We dined al fresco. My starter was a beautifully plated duck liver...and peppercorn paté. ($16) It was delicious and my husband enjoyed the sherried lobster bisque. ($13) Next, we enjoyed a fresh green salad which was included with our mains. The menu was special for the day and choosing was not easy. I picked one of the fish plates. There was a salmon with grilled shrimp, a grouper with sea scallops and a golden tile fish. ($35) All came with veggies and goat cheese whipped potatoes. Geesh! How to pick?! My husband prefers red meat and he had an equally difficult choice. He chose spice rubbed prime filet mignon accompanied by two large garlic buttered poached shrimp. ($48) Again, the plating was beautiful. There were some terrific dessert choices ($7-9). The black onyx cocoa cake was magnifique! The service at Cafe Margaux is a team effort and everyone working in the outdoor serving area approached us in a professional but leisurely manner and that was much appreciated. We never felt rushed. Finally, my only suggestion would be for the restaurant to use portable credit machines so that guests can pay at their table.More

We have been going to Cafe Margaux for several years and it never disappoints ... A great restaurant, excellent service especially by servers Christen and Sara. The food is exceptional. We always go for lunch and have a delicious meal. Can't wait to return. We...live in Jupiter FL, and sometimes we drive up to Cocoa just to have lunch ... like we always say on our way out ... we will return.

My wife and I just celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary at Cafe Margaux at Cocoa Village in Cocoa Florida and we picked the perfect place, again. Our servers were Darius and sweet Athena and they were very, very good. The manager Jason checked on us...several times and they could not have been a better team to have serving us. My wife had the seafood trio and it was out of this world while my 16oz Prime Ribeye had me in culinary heaven. The steak came with asparagus and Greek roasted potatoes and the fish trio came with roasted rainbow carrots and garlic mashed potatoes and we were both very satisfied with our choices. My wife and I choose Cafe Margaux for almost all of our special dinners or whenever we want an upscale meal in a comfortable atmosphere and tonight's meal and service is why we keep going back. Thank you Jason for your great food, terrific atmosphere and the amazing food that always comes out of your kitchen being served by the best servers in town. We'll see you guys sometime soon. Take Care and Happy Eating, Rick WMore

We had an amazing meal at Cafe Margaux. We have a family condo in Cape Canaveral and have always wanted to stop at Cafe Margaux when we had someone to watch our kids. This finally happened and we were so glad. The service and food...was top notch. Since we are from Michigan we usually stick with fresh seafood while in Florida. I changed it up here and decided to have a steak. It was the best steak I have had in Florida. My wife got fresh fish so I did get to try some. All of the food was amazing. We can’t wait to come back.More
