Café Rabelais

2442 Times Blvd. | Houston, TX 77005

Situated on Times Blvd. in the heart of Rice Village, lies Café Rabelais, an exquisite French bistro. 

A chalkboard menu hangs from the wall and changes according to what's fresh daily. Start with a classic French appetizer-the seared foie gras.  Choose from a duck breast or lamb dish, high quality escargot, sandwiches for lunch, or mussels served with frites (fries). Pair your selection with a beverage from their nice collection of European wines.  After your meal, try a desert crepe and if you're a chocolate lover, be sure and try the chocolate mousse.

This cozy and romantic atmosphere is the perfect date spot. Find wine bottles neatly stacked in wooden compartments against the wall and wine bottle drip candles on the tables. This place is always packed but don't let that scare you away- it's worth the wait!
