We ordered the eggs Benedict, pain de chocolate and bacon. All very good. Hollandaise a little too lemony, but otherwise no complaints. Service was great, Lewis was our server. Cozy atmosphere!

The food choices here are very nice and the quality top notch. Enjoyed sitting in the cafe and watching the world go by over lunch.

I had not eaten here for a few years, and was very pleasantly surprised. The setting could lead you to think you are in France. It was simple but nice. The food that I had--onion soup and Quiche of the day--was excellent. If you want a laid back pleasant meal, seriously consider Cafe Beau Soleil.

Charming French style café in the Newport Fashion Island shopping center. Lovely patio with décor that reminds one of Paris. The service was excellent as was the French onion soup and tarte tartin. They offer a large menu including crepes, sandwiches, omlettes and typical French dishes. Look forward to visiting again.

My wife and I have dined here on three separate visits to Newport Beach. The menu does look like a Parisian Street Cafe with slections from fish, stews, steak frite. I remember last year I had the lamb shank (perfect) and this year I had the steak frite with brown sauce which was perfectly prepared. There is nothing pretentious about... More

The restaurant itself it not that much to look at but the meal we had was excellent. We wanted to have a french meal and Boeuf Bourguignon was on the menu. Always skeptical about this meal because if the meat is not prepared and cooked properly it is just awful. We both ordered it and we not disappointed - it... More

I had a craving for crepes and checked this place out. Cozy and charming indoor seating. Food was ok...not sure why but it t was not quite like the crepe I remember from Paris. I think the crepe might have been thicker - less light. It's ok.

Solo afternoon late lunch before a movie. 2 for 1 happy hour menu for apps and wine. The beet salad was outstanding! Calamari served fresh and hot. The server, David, was attentive and nice. Great little place near the theaters in Fashion Island.
