    Can someone please give me translation of "tu es beau à croquer"?

    the meaning is "you are really cute". but i don't know if you have an expression which conveys also the image: the guy is so cute/handsome that you could bite him (as you eat an apple or anything really nice...)

    I think we can say 'you look good enough to eat'.

    Sorry to bump that old thread but I was looking for something (that I will never find, like David Vincent ... I'd better go to bed now, talking nonsense ...).
    Can we say: 'he's a dish'?

    You scared me, I thought you were talking about me :D
    Seriously, I like the expressions you suggested but is it possible to say 'you're a dish' (or is it too much?)? And is it only for men or only for women, or does it work for both?

    Anyway thanks for your reply.

    I think even "you're a babe" works here, too.

    That's also the way I heard it and I'm pretty sure it is only a BE word.

    He's a dish seems dated to me, from the American point of view.

    Sorry if I digress - what is a "BE word" egueule?
