A Taste of French Romance Since 1998

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.

Olga and Jacques have pledged to maintain:

  • the spirit of Pescadou Bistro, described as “romantic” by wGuides and “uncompromisingly French, casual and just plain fun.” by Gayot.com;

  • the “Simple pleasure of Pescadou Bistro” decribed by Zagat Survey’s Orange County editor Gretchen Kurz;

  • the “amazing hospitality” described by wGuides;

  • and the great “Bistro fare” that makes Pescadou Bistro one of the greatest value in Orange County: “one of the best deals around” for “great-value prix fixe dinners” ” (Zagat Survey); “If you’re looking for value, the $35 prix-fixe menu can’t be beat.” (Gayot.com); “Down-to-earth French fare” (Orange Coast magazine).  

Events

The Loire Valley is often referred to as "the Garden of France", the playground of Kings (good hunting country within easy reach of Paris), and the Cradle of the French Language (the city of Tours is reputed to speak the purest French). Listed (at least in part) amongst the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in late 2000, the Loire Valley is also noteworthy for the quality of its architectural heritage, in historic towns such as Montsoreau, Amboise, Blois, Chinon, Orléans, Saumur and Tours, but in particular for its world-famous châteaux (castles), such as the Châteaux de Montsoreau, Amboise, Azay-le-Rideau, Chambord and Chenonceau.
