Pescadou Bistro Restaurant Review

: Pescadou Bistro, located in a rather nondescript storefront on Newport’s scenic Balboa Peninsula, is uncompromisingly French. It's also very casual and just plain fun. Owners Jacques and Olga de Quillien imbue the place with a breezy, convivial spirit and culinary sensibilities that have made it beloved in the community. Provençal fare ranges from rabbit à la moutarde and coq au vin to a seared duck breast with green peppercorns and grilled hanger steak with a red wine reduction. Regulars come for the good bouillabaisse. Can't decide? The restaurant offers a three-course prix-fixe menu at a reasonable price, too.
