Loved the French-themed atmosphere - felt a bit transported here! We had the yummy chorizo mussels and pommes frites and two very delicious salads (endive and beet) . I was partial to the endive salad - it was served with farro, pear and the most delicious goat cheese. The wine selection was lovely as well - loved the wine flight.... More

This hidden gem is tucked humbly away on a street side in cozy Ocean Beach. If you're not looking for it, you could miss it - which, would be a shame. The restaurant is several small but charming dining areas, partitioned and appointed much like an old countryside home. The staff is professional, knowledgeable, and aims to please. We tried...

We were in town for our first ever ComicCon and were not familiar with the area. Our front desk said this was the best in OB, so we gave it a try. We were still in shorts and board shorts but they said we were fine. Unfortunately I don't recall the our server's name, but he was very friendly and... More

Very difficult to describe these dishes as they are so complex and varied. The brussel sprouts are a must have! The portions are so generous, makes it worth the slightly higher prices at this establishment. We had a flat bread that consisted of beets, curry sauce, assorted cheeses, jalapeno, and feta cheese that lasted lasted us for three days as... More

Never knew about this place until we wound up in Ocean Beach one day. It was great. Tthe beef Burgundy was to die for. Very rich deep dark broth with very tasty tender beef and just the right texture to the carrots and mushrooms. The mussels were tremendous also the steak tartare was very good. Our only complaint was the... More

Fabulous French dining in Ocean Beach? Who Knew!! We were not expecting to find escargots and lobster bisque that were out of this world in Ocean Beach, but there on the corner in this quirky building sits Bo beau beckoning francophiles and gourmands everywhere! We had 2 kids under 7 with us and they adored the french bread, atmosphere, and... More

A small in intimate French bistro with an extensive wine list, this gem is worth the drive to Ocean Beach. Dark, wood beams and strange light fixtures provide a very rustic atmosphere. If you like France, this is a good substitute. We started with a small order of the famous Crispy Brussel Sprouts (yes, they live up to the hype!)... More

I've eaten here several times. The food is good and the staff is personable. The outdoor seating is a bit uncomfortable, what with the hard wooden benches. But my real issue is that the menu has become too predictable and needs an update or makeover. Like their signature appetizer, the roasted brussels sprouts -- good, but how about something new?...
