We were wandering about looking for somewhere to have breakfast and happened into the Bistro Francais. We enjoyed a huge portion of fresh papaya before digging into our main courses.

We loved bistro Francais! The owner victor is great as well as Maximilian!!! We had the Italian poached eggs and French toast for breakfast and loved every bite! Would absolutely go back! We tried many other restaurants on the island after our 6 visits there and this one is hands down our favorite!

You have to try the French Toast. As others have written, best EVER! Husband had the Croques Madame and loved that also. Bacon was a little weird (extremely thin and very uniform in shape--seemed pressed). Anyways, it tasted o.k. The mixed side of fruit on the plate was also very nice. Waiter was the most delightful man...

We love going to the French Bistro for breakfast. It is always delicious, and much more food than you need. The fruit is always fresh. French Toast and Ham Omelet are incredible. Our girls love the bird in there too!! Super sweet staff.
