Charming, Authentic Bistro

“Located steps away from the La Jolla Shores Beach, Voulez Vous Bistro and Boulangerie opened in September. One doesn’t expect a French bakery and authentic French cuisine among the surf shops, kayak shops, beach goers and scuba divers. The prices are reasonable and the food is delectable.


The secret is that the bistro is the creation of the Malécot family – Christian and Michel. Christian Malécot, a 22-year-old business graduate of University of San Diego, is heading the restaurant assisted by his father, Michel, who has run several restaurants and a large catering business in La Jolla and Pacific Beach for 33 years. Michel’s restaurant, The French Gourmet in Pacific Beach, is renowned for its bakery and its French cuisine. Christian worked at The French Gourmet, during the summer, for eight years.

The Bistro is located in the space where Papalulu’s was (also close to Barbarella). The colorful tropical décor offers a warm welcome to those who enjoy a relaxed beach setting. The patio is filled with colorful umbrellas and surrounded by French Ploynesian-themed murals. Inside are the display cases for the bakery items and a few comfortable tables.

Voulez Vous prepares authentic French cuisine with a California touch and receives fresh-baked goods from The French Gourmet every day of the week.

The Boulangerie (French for bakery) offers croissants, sweet crêpes and pastries. A flaky, buttery spinach and cheese croissant with a cup of coffee makes for a heavenly start of the morning. Savory crêpes eggs Florentine and Omelettes are also available for breakfast. For lunch, a grilled chicken Panini with tomatoes, jalapeno jack cheese and basil aioli on a French Baguette will hit the spot.






The Bistro offers craft beer on tap and an expansive list of wine (personally selected by



Voulez Vous is a nice addition to La Jolla Shores whether you are interested in specialty coffees with croissants for breakfast, a festive Sunday brunch, a lunch on the sunny patio or a special dinner with French specialties and a great glass of wine.”
