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.

This is my favorite place to eat. My husband and I stumbled upon it while conducting business in the Monterey area. We had crab cakes, steak frites, a couple of glasses of good (cheap - $2.50) wine and creme brulee. It was DELICIOUS and the waiter was top notch. I recently returned there for my birthday with my sister and friend. When they discovered it was my birthday, the wait staff adorned our table with rose petals and confetti - very nice touch. We ate and drank large. For the three of us, the bill was about $250.00. But, we had appetizer, soup, salad, filet mignon, three deserts (hey, it was my birthday), a bottle of wine and expressos. Very reasonable I thought. I am actually planning another visit there this weekend. It is my new favorite place to eat. I highly recommend it!
