Fifi's Cafe Bistro
From the crocks of onion soup to the buckets of mussels with fries, this place has a menu straight out of a Parisian sidewalk cafe. The three-course prix fixe meal also is French in origin. But perhaps the most pleasant French culinary custom that this place borrows is the feeling that, even if dinner is not pricey, it should still be an enjoyable special occasion. Cheery, festive decor, a knowledgeable husband-and-wife duo at the helm, and a renowned collection of French wines and wines by the glass help to make this place a favorite of foodies on a normal budget. See website for menu and more.
The wait staff were friendly and the wine was so-so, but the dinner was poor in quality. I ordered mussels and was disappointed in the quantity and quality. The bowl was filled with about a dozen mussels, two of which were empty, two of which were still closed after cooking. The dish had way too much balsamic vinegar and overpowered the flavor of the mussels. For the money spent, there are better places to eat in Pacific Grove.
