“Very good French food in Rosarito”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2012

Charming Bistro... Nice atmosphere.... interesting menu.... the owner in attentive.
Pleasant soft live music... but I sure wish that the onion soup was more authentic
with gobs of gruyere cheese melted on top (and down the sides) of the bowl.

“Great Find!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2012 via mobile

We've seen the restaurant sign with the Eiffel Tower on it for years, and finally tried it last night - sorry we waited so long. Located across the street from the Oceana Towers, this charming little Bristro has a great decor, eclectic menu offering French, Itialian and Mexican dishes. A nice selection of wines by the glass and a very attentive wait staff. Not your run of the mill Rosarito restaurants- no rice and beans here!

This is by far the best restaurant in Rosarito! My daughter & I had a wonderful dinner -everything we ate was delicious and had a great presentation. The atmosphere and decore is european and friendly, they have outdoor dining as well., The wait staff were very prompt and couteous & the Owner/Host Gloria Luz is inviting, interesting & and very knowledgeable about many subjects-it was trully a great experience! I can't wait to go back on my next trip.

“My favourite place to dine in Rosarito”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2012

No trip to Rosarito is complete with out dinner at Le Cousteau. The food is always wonderful, and the staff treats me like its my second home... love love love this place. Make sure to ask about the specials, they always have something interesting to offer... and say hi to Phillipe the owner if he is in, he might tell you a joke :)
