This is a small restaurant that will really surprise you. It is set in the corner of a strip mall and it has a wonderful outdoor patio with a pond and waterfall - perfect setting for a relaxing meal. There is an inside eating area also for inclement weather, but not the same ambiance. The food is quite good and... More

My husband and I just moved to Fallbrook.We looked at Travel Advisor and decided to try Brothers Bistro. It was wonderful. My husband had the Mahi-Mahi ( tonight's special) which was seasoned and beautifully presented. The French Onion soup and House Salad was wonderful also. The setting is peaceful! A wonderful evening.

We joined our daughter and her family here for dinner and were surprised to say the least. Being that it is in a shopping center, we did not expect much. They have a beautiful patio dining area and you quickly forget you are in a shopping center. The service was outstanding and the waiter joked around and played with the... More

My sister & found Brothers Bistro down the street from our hotel. We dined outside in the enclosed patio. Wonderful experience! Good wine & food! The grilled shrimp were fresh & tasty. Restaurant busy, so service was a little slow. Friendly server, manager could have assisted serving staff more.

We always enjoy the food here. It is always fresh and delicously prepared. Dine inside or outside. If you're tired of fast food. Look for this hidden Gem in the Major Market shopping center.

Absolutely fantastic. We discovered this place thanks to Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. The food was excellent. My husband had Cioppino and I had salmon. Big portions and I ate the salmon for lunch the next day. I am very picky about crab cakes and theirs are excellent. I just wish it was closer to where I live, but... More

Open on Monday so this is why we found them. A quaint place with a beautiful patio. Caesar salad was so delicious and the calzone was excellent.

Fresh fish are featured as daily specials. Only place in Fallbrook that doesn't overcook their fish. My wife had the Cioppino. Presentation great and more importantly was the flavor. The broth is complex, not thin. I had the halibut with pomodoro and Kalamata olives - really satisfying in taste and of course not over done. Their bread pudding dessert was... More
