RSF Votes for Favorite Restaurant in the Ranch

Tagged in

Last week, RSF residents weighed in on a survey which asked: What is your favorite restaurant in Rancho Santa Fe? With 29% of the vote, the winner is… MILLE FLEURS!

Located on the corner of Paseo Delicias and Avenida de Acacias, Mille Fleurs has been in the heart of the Ranch for over 30 years. The French restaurant features an elegant menu offering lunch, dinner, dessert, and cocktails. Besides a unique menu that brings together the best of French cuisine with California ingredients, Mille Fleurs prides itself on being one of the first farm-to-table restaurants in San Diego.

Mille Fleurs, which means “thousand flowers”, celebrated its 30th Anniversary in 2015. In an article published by the RSF Review, owner Bertrand Hug detailed how he took ownership of the famous establishment in 1984 and transformed the vibe to a more elegant establishment. Hug also brought Chef Martin Woesle on board, who builds a distinctive menu using only fresh produce.

Mille Fleurs is not only recognized by the members of the community, it has received several awards including 'Top 25 Restaurants in America' by Food & Wine magazine and 'Best Restaurant in San Diego' by The New York Times.

Following Mille Fleurs, RSF’s Morada Restaurant and Thyme in the Ranch tied for second place with 21% of the vote. Rancho Santa Fe Bistro, Ponsaty’s and The Golf Club’s Osuna Grille followed the top restaurants in that order.
