Café is nice but not what it used to be when the Petersen family owned it. The charm it used to have and service was no longer there for us. Food is good but not worth the price. Café and bar have been updated and are very nice but the old world charm is gone. I would recommend the cafe... More

A great little bistro in an Old World Charm inn located in the heart of Solvang. Quiet, charming. Great service and excellent food.

Like my review of the inn, a meal here is a very great dining experience. we usually book a stay that includes at least one dinner here, and have always enjoyed the meals. The Chef has never disappointed, all the meals have been excellent.

We enjoy the three course dinner included with the theater package. Everything is tasty and be sure to get the molten, chocolate cake for dessert. It is worth the calories!

We had the continental breakfast buffet, which included hard boiled eggs, yogurt, fresh fruit (strawberries), bagels and dry cereal. The eggs were very good, cooked perfectly! The strawberries were sweet and fresh, and the sweetened yogurt was a good pairing with the fruit. Our server made sure that we did not ru out of hot coffee. Tables overlook a courtyard,... More

We spent the 3 days at the Petersen Village Inn. In order to make things convenient we decided to have dinner there one of the nights. It was a very,very good idea! The main course choices were Petite Filet, Salmon, and Chicken Province. Each one was prepared with such excellence that we all wanted to try each others. For our... More

Cafe Provence features European & Mediterranean cuisine wonderfully prepared by award-winning Chef Erminio Dal-Fuoco. Leisurely dine in the unhurried atmosphere of the upscale bistro-style dining room while sipping wine from one of the local valley wineries featured on the Cafes wine list. Arrangements can be made for small private dinner parties and winemaker dinners. Open for Dinner nightly. Reservations highly recommended.
