“Very good food”
Reviewed 28 April 2013

The food was very good and there's a good choice. The only thing I could say is that some of them are pricy. Decoration is nice as well as the service.
They don't let beggars enter which is a plus when you want to eat without being disturbed like in some other places.

“Authentic, delicious food and inviting atmosphere!”
Reviewed 21 March 2013

I grew up in France, which generally makes me a harsh critic of French restaurants. Le Cousteau passed my "food snob" test with flying colors-- the food is authentic, absolutely delicious and brought me back to my childhood in just one bite...followed by another bite,and another ,and another, well you get the point. ;) The ambience is romantic and inviting, the walls are covered in French posters and memorabilia and delightful French music pleasantly plays in the background. To top it all off, the owner Philippe is a darling and the staff are accommodating,knowledgeable and kind. My husband and I will certainly be returning and we highly recommend the restaurant!

“Excellent romantic atmosphere”
Reviewed 8 October 2012

Great ambience! Very romantic. I dig the wood fired Neopolitan style pizza. The Ceasar Salad is served just like the original, the dressing made from fresh anchovies. And the profiterole dessert is outstanding.

“Very good French food in Rosarito”
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!”
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!
