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).
