"Knowing Denis' prowess made our decision both difficult and easy. We knew everything would be delicious, but every selection we made precluded our tasting of something else. Oh, the cruelty of a single meal." ~Gulfshore Life Magazine

"Bistro Soleil at the Olde Marco Inn on Marco Island is in a historic building built in 1883. French born and trained Chef Denis Meurgue was named one of the Top Ten Chefs in South Florida. The dinner I savored reflected his worldwide cooking experiences. No meal for me is complete without a delectable dessert, and the fresh beignets with chantilly cream and chocolate fondant was just that." ~Stephen Fries, New Haven Register
