Enjoyed a very good lunch. The service was outstanding and the Bloody Mary's and food was wonderful. The salads were very fresh and the meat loaf and shrimp and grits were delicious. I will go there again when I am in South Bend.

Beautiful building (previously a bank) in a nice location. We ate outside, enjoyed watching high school kids in formal dress prepare for prom. Food was delicious -- beef tenderloin was tender, sauce savory, vegetables prepared very nicely. Duck confit was crisp but not dried out. Bison short ribs were nicely prepared and beautifully presented Wine list was fairly extensive, mostly... More

I had a variation on the the wedge salad, and although rather small in size, it was very tasty and satisfying in its' taste. Too be honest, I had a hard time deciding on my main dish. The offerings are limited. I decided upon the... More

Without a doubt one of the top 3 restaurants in South Bend. The wild mushroom soup is a must. Service was very good and out waiter was very knowledgeable about the daily specials. A definite destination restaurant.

I tried the monk fish special tonight, and it was absolutely delicious. A sweet thick piece of fish, wrapped and spinach with delicious sides. My coworkers had the porkchops, and they loved them. The service was excellent, very attentive and not overbearing. We shared the crème brûlée for dessert, and it was perfect

Café Navarre has been a beautiful additional to downtown South Bend. The renovation of the building was very well done - takes advantage of and highlights the unique architecture. Menu is well planned with fresh seasonal offerings and has something for everyone - I especially appreciate the lunch options and the fresh fish selections. Great place for lunch or dinner... More
