Bistrot O Delices

Easy and enjoyable eating
The latest addition to Bucerias, offering modest dining all day long, is the quaint Bistrot O Delices located on Calle Galeana 14A.  A bistro (or bistrot) is akin to a cafe; a small restaurant that serves moderately priced, simple meals in an informal setting.

This amazing little gem, offering delices (delicacies), recently opened up on at the end of last year.  The owners, Sandrine Millan and Jean Dubourg, are originally from the south of France where Jean trained as a Chef.

As you enter, lured by the tantalizing smell that has already captured you from out front, the friendly French owners graciously welcome you.  Dangling from the ceiling are colored paper lanterns, in shades of red and purple.   Spanish salsa music fills the Bistrot, giving it a lounge-like feel.  This place is cool, yet not overdone.

The locale, modern meets madera (wood), is chic and slightly romantic in its own way.  Eight little rustic tables are nestled into a garden oasis, each set with wicker placemats and white cloth serviettes.   A noble tree, rising up out of the terracotta floor, is the centerpiece around which the patio setting has been cast.   White bougainvillea, large green ferns and a dash of other foliage enhance the already relaxed atmosphere.

The menu offers a selection of light and exquisite food.  If salty is what your taste buds are craving, then try the Croque monsieur (an open-faced ham and creamy emmental cheese sandwich) accompanied with a side salad drizzled in oil vinaigrette. Other options include a variety of omelets, quiche, and the recently added panini.  If you desire something sweet, try the Pan du chocolate (a mouthwatering chocolate filled pastry).  Also available are croissants, muffins, and baguettes served with homemade jam.   Another option for the sweet tooth on a hot day is a glace (ice cream with fruit and topping).  Each and every day there is a different plat du jour (French dish) available if you choose to be daring.

Individually wrapped homemade jams (strawberry, apple/coffee, berry mix) are also available for purchase and make a delightful gift.

Open daily from 9:00am-10:00pm

Located at: Calle Galeana 14A  (Half a block up from Marks Bar and Grill, if you are heading east towards the highway)     322 158
