What a great find here on Coronado Island. Looking for a nice, cozy place to have a great dinner with outstanding customer service, this is the place. My wife and I were in search of a local restaurant to enjoy for the evening and found it here. Will definitely go back again.

On our first trip to Coronado, we heard the Bistro was a favorite of the locals. We had to try it. Delicious breakfast! They serve other meals but we usually have breakfast there.

The bananas foster french toast was very tasty. Yum! The pancake breakfast was huge and good. The restaurant was conveniently located next to the Crown Inn. It has a nice patio.

We reserved outdoor table in advance for dinner. The place is small and has indoor and outdoor sitting, outdoor is nicer to my taste. Friendly service, food is well prepared, not bad

This is a great breakfast spot. I always make sure to find something to slather the wonderful homemade jam on. The bistro is small but the food is large with flavor. A good consistent spot which is hard to find in Coronado.

Our grandkids LOVED the delicious belgian waffles; and we grownups were equally pleased with our breakfast selections. All the food was fresh, tasty and beautifully presented. We liked it so much that we booked a table for the spanish food and wine tasting dinner, which did not disappoint. Wonderful flavors and wine pairings, in a festive holiday bistro atmosphere. Go...

Went to Crown Bistro for breakfast with friends. We all had a variety of food with nothing but fantastic responses from all. Banana Foster French Toast, fresh strawberry waffle just to name a couple of our favorites. We will be back when headed back to Coronado.

Head and shoulders above anything on the island. The combination of a solid menu, excellent preparation and presentation, generous portions and extremely reasonable prices just does not exist elsewhere on Coronado. Do yourself a favor and walk the extra 4 blocks to try this amazing bistro.

Had a cousin in San Diego tell me about this restaurant. We would have never tried this bistro without the recommendation and that would have been a misfortune. This place is great. Very European, six tables inside and five tables outside with a very small staff. Our first night there I had Lamb shank and the meat fell off the... More
