Great service, wonderful food and just a special place to dine either indoors or out in a lovely little upscale neighborhood in Bucerias, South of the kissing bridge and around the corner from Mark's, Karen's Place and a host of shops & art galleries.

The menu has only a few items. The ones we tries were all excellent especially the Tuna mustard steak.

I hate to tell to many people about this tiny, elegant, delicous resturant which has such fantastic food...you do need a reservation. We eat once a week here when in Nuevo Vallarta, worth any cab ride to get there. I always have their Tuna - which is huge and you can share it...it has a mustard sauce with it and... More

We started with lovely goat cheese salads, so fresh! Then on to peppercorn steaks. They were amazing! Enjoyed a merlot that was a perfect pairing. Even the accompanying potatoes and vegetables were great. And dessert too was delicious. Going back next week!

This French cuisine restaurant is wonderful. 10-12 tables, limited but not limiting menu which hits all the right spots. Escargot, French onion soup, pâté for starters. Boeuf Bourguignon, lamb shanks, steak à poivre for mains. Crème Broulée, chocolate etc for dessert. If you like French food, a quiet dining experience and the ability to bring your own wine to the...

This is a lovely little place with an abbreviated menu. Our food was good, service was excellent, and ambiance was nice. They have a decent wine selection.

We have been here many times over the years. Usually get the pepper steak, which is superb. Went there recently and tried the Tuna. I believe it was best I have ever had. Meals come with salad, but the Greek salad, French onion soup, and escargot are also favorites. Located on a side street, limited tables - best to have... More

This restaurant is not to be believed. Prices are reasonable and food is fabulous. They have a full bar, but you can bring your own wine. The pepper steak melts in your mouth. Great pate, desserts - everything is fabulous. If you come, and they are full - try across the street at the little Spanish restaurant. Fabulous food, unique... More

Went to le Bistrot for the first time last month and the food was excellent.Even though the power went out for almost an hour they didn't miss a beat and the food came out in a timely manner. I had the pepper steak and it was one of the best steaks I have eaten in Mexico. We will definitely be... More

Went there a couple of times for dinner during our stay; very intimate atmosphere, excellent to celebrate an anniversary, birthday or a romantic dinner; fine French cuisine at a reasonable price
