Set in the quaint village of Rancho Santa Fe, Mille Fleurs has been a longtime—over 30 years—haunt among locals celebrating special occasions. Its elegant piano bar is often filled with well-dressed visitors in town to watch the Del Mar races, while the courtyard patio strung with lights makes for a romantic setting, especially when watching the fireworks.
French and German influences like spätzle and wiener schnitzel make their appearance on this market-driven menu. In fact, the chef makes a beeline for tradition with mains like lobster bisque and Dover sole. Even dessert veers classic, with straightforward and delicious selections like apple strudel.
Five- and seven-course menus with wine pairings are also on offer and quite popular.- MICHELIN guide inspectors
