“Terrific small French restaurant in Bucerias, Mexico”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Le Bistrot is a gem of a restaurant hidden away on a side street in Mexico. Outstanding, classic French dishes with a somewhat limited menu, but everything is excellent! It does get busy at dinner, so be sure to make a reservation.

“Not to be missed ”
Reviewed 2 April 2014 via mobile

Charming, romantic bistro. Owners are welcoming. Had the frog legs, French onion soup, chicken with mushroom sauce and tuna with mustard sauce. Menu changing daily. Choice of 4-5 starters and 3 entrees and 3 desserts. Portions are large, so come hungry. Having been a classically trained chef in Paris, the sauces were right on. Everything was cooked perfectly. Bring your own wine. Avoid sitting outside due to the stray dogs.

“Creme de la Creme”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

Reservations a must! This petite gem, located in the heart of Bucerias, (Nayarit), captures your eye as you round the corner. Hospitable and gracious service topped with an excellent small menu in a quaint atmosphere - who could ask for more! (Value added - bring your own wine - or purchase from the little store across the street, and no corkage fee!) On our 3rd visit, in March 2014, we were delighted to find Boeuf Bourgignon on the day's menu. Slowly and subtly cooked to perfection, finished in a clay pot in a hot oven, the serving was more than ample. This is dining, the way it should always be. Congratulations to the owners, who obviously love what they do!

“Consistently fabulous meal”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

Where else can you have a gourmet meal and bring your own wine ??? If you are looking for a long menu with lots of choices , this is not the restaurant for you . There are only 3 entrees , but they always have something for us. Portions are very large , so come hungry !!!
