This was our second dining experience at the Bistro and it was every bit as wonderful as the last time! My wife had thier Petrale soul and it was delicious. I had the hanger steak which was outstanding and melted in the mouth. The service was exceptional from the moment we walked in, through the first-class treatment we received from the busboy. Our waitress was very attentive and a great personality. You can bring your own wine (sometimes they waive the corkage fee) but we bought a delicious bottle of their Pinot and were very pleased. This is a very small place, but therein lies its attraction. The entire dining experience was very affordable, especially for the value received. Close your eyes and yhou are dining in a wondrful Bistro in Paris! We'll be back!!

We started with ousters on the half shell. And had fresh petrale sole. Lightly sautéed. The server, Julia was cheerful and attentive. The bathrooms were outside the building so I was not eager to brave a trip in the rain but the food and staff was worth the visit

This restaurant is a wonderful find. Located on the north end of the main street in Occidental it has been serving wonderful county French food for what seems to be a very long time. We never get tire of taking a drive to the coast and then head back through Occidental to have a trip finishing meal. Try the Escargot in Pastry…wonderful. The Short Ribs are excellent!! The special of the day is always a treat. Take your own wine…corkage is reasonable. Highly recommended!!!

All I can say is WOW! Our bike tour group enjoyed our last night's dinner in this really superb bistro. The food is a good as anything in The City! Hard to find wines from the County are a plus. The kitchen is so tiny! How do they do it?
