Originally owned by Daniel Sidhoum (Olga’s brother), the “new-and-improved” Pescadou Bistro remained in the family after Chef Jacques de Quillien and his wife Olga took over in 2002. Olga, raised in Southern France and Paris, and Jacques raised in France’s Loire Valley and Brittany, bring a eclectic French Cuisine perspective to Pescadou Bistro. Chef Jacques de Quillien was previously the owner of Le Mistral, in Corona del Mar. Prior to Newport Beach he worked as a Chef in Montreal, Coral Gables, Houston, and San Diego.
Rillettes, trout, floating island, all excellent, as usual. Service was superb. My wife and I always make time for a meal at Pescadou whenever we are in Newport Beach
Great place ! A little bit of France in Newport Beach... food, staff, social distancing was great. We took the blackboard menu, fresh, delicious and great value for money
Pescados is a restaurant worthy of the best Parisian, Lyon, Quebec City cuisines at a fraction of the cost. I’ve been dining here for the last 12 years and have never..ever been disappointed. It’s not a glitzy environment. I simply don’t care for anything other than great French food...beautifully prepared and graciously served as is the case at Pescadou Bistro in Newport Beach, California!!!
Our first visit at Pescadou. We loved it! Service was outstanding. Food was delicious! Will definitely go back soon.
This is a gem of a restaurant, a true family run treasure. We are so glad they are able to reopen. PLEASE support local.
Great local Resturaunt, glad to see them open once again. we’ll be back soon
It was excellent as always. One of my favorite restaurants! So glad to have them open again. I always know that I will find so many good things on the menu that it will be hard to choose. Jacques and Olga are so warm and welcoming. That’s why I keep going back!
This was our first time back to indoor dining. Everything was perfect. Thank you so much. We are glad your restaurant survived COVID-19. Best wishes going forward
Overall excellent experience. The food is amazing. Service is excellent. Wine is delicious.
Great restaurant, my wife and I come here almost every month. Great French food in a great, cozy setting. Also, very good on the Covid protocols - every server in a mask, tables apart from each other, etc. A complete winner!
Fantastic and authentic French dining. A table next to us ordered Ranch dressing for their pommes frites and I loved that there was none! We need more real food here. Thank you!
Excellent meal. Always good, friendly service. Pleased that Jacques, Olga and team have opened again. Great restaurant. Our favourite.
Always a great meal!
Our favorite restaurant in Orange County—we are thrilled that they are open again!!!
We love Pescadou's! We were so excited upon hearing of their re-opening. Since it was only their second night being opened, it was a little more chaotic. They were extremely busy. We didn't get the personal attention we usually get, but the food was fabulous and that's all that matters. Thanks!
Thanks to staff and owners for staying open. Only 2 outside tables so we were 2 of 6 customers. Food was awesome. Sitting outside ok given circumstances of covid newsome shutdown of indoor seating. But Newport Blvd loud. $25 corkage fee. I get it. Thx for a fun date night.
Service was slow. Some of the dishes came out lukewarm. We have dined here before and really like this restaurant. We will be back.
