We went to this small restaurant simply because it was lunchtime, it was there, we were hungry and so decided to give it a try, not expecting very much.
Were we surprised! The Bistro is quite small (maybe 10-12 inside tables and 3 or 4 outside). The food and the service were both superb, and we could not believe the low prices. In fact, we enjoyed it so much that we came back the next day for brunch! We also learned that it has a stellar local reputation, winning several "best of..." awards.
It's part of a hotel/motel, the Crown City Inn. While we didn't stay there (we had a prior reservation at the Hotel del Coronado), I did hear, while waiting for my wife in the lobby, a comment from someone checking out: "We stayed here last year and loved it, and we'll be back next year!" We'll likely stay there on one of our trips to the area.
Do try the Bistro, you won't be sorry!
