Fodor's Review

Candlelight and music fill this small bistro known for its generous wine pours and French cuisine. The menu ranges from escargots to sand dabs sautéed in lemon beurre blanc to steak frites (french fries); lunches here are an exceptional value, as are the prix-fixe dinner specials offered from Sunday through Thursday.

Fifi's Bistro Café Review

At the recommendation of a friend, who visits the area often, we had our first meal here perhaps 4 years ago, and have come back yearly. The location, on a busy street in a mini-mall, on first blush, gave us pause, not that we're snobs, but just seemed a little out of place. Once inside, however, you feel transformed into a different place (perhaps France?!). The food is traditional French bistro with lots of comfort food with lots of flavor.

I especially liked the soup and fish dishes. Decent wine selection as well, all at fairly reasonable prices.

great breakfast

We have enjoyed FiFi's for a few years every time we pass through Monterey area. Their breakfast is particularly good with a feel of small town cafe and great food. Good value can be had during lunch time with local fresh catch and produce.
