Super food and a awesome wine list ! A real gem. Not to miss !!! Excellent ingredients and a chef who is truly memorable ! Not a lot of places, so it would be wise to make a reservation. Another strong point is that the real good wines have a very logical price.

We chose the Bistrot for our Valentine's Dinner because the proposed set menu looked balanced and well thought out. Indeed, everything was delicious and beautifully prepared, though service was a bit slow, but not totally unexpected given that every table was full and had arrived about the same time. Wanted to give it another go so returned the following lunch.... More

Passed this place this afternoon on the way back to my apartment from parking the car. Didn't look like much, but looking on Tripadvisor directed me back. I'm so glad I looked for it on TA. Our ceviche and avacado appetizer was fresh and fantastic. The steak tartare some of the best ever (including Balthazar (Paris)). The Lamb shoulder wrapped... More

Went there for the first time with friends. We were welcomed as if we had come often. The food (fish or meat) was perfect. Right next to the Forville market (Sucquet area) Nothing fancy but really worth trying

This restaurant came highly recommended. We were told we needed a reservation though the restaurant was never more than half full on the Saturday night we were there (January). From the get go the maitre d' treated us with contempt. He spoke enough English that we could have got by but didn't seem willing to use it. He was so... More

I just spent a most enjoyable, out of season weekend, in Cannes with friends and found this most excellent little bistro and I am so pleased that we did. We wandered around for a while, trying to judge from the look of the various restaurants, which may be to our taste, an impossible task and one usually doomed to failure,... More

This was the best meal Steak Au Poivre and an excellent 1999 Haut Medoc. Friendly service, and very good value. The decor is quite simple and does not look like a tourist trap

Based on an attractive menu and stylish decor, my wife, daughter and I decided on this restaurant for our last lunch in Cannes before our return home. We were not disappointed in the least. Le Bistrot Gourmand is very French in many ways, and one should truly go there without any prejudged ideas of what a French restaurant and service... More

Yes! Great value, superb presentation, efficient friendly service and a very tasty meal in a smart bistro! Evidence that Cannes can get it right! Don't hesitate - book and go!! We shall certainly be back. Tip: lunchtime menus are terrific value and the house wine the best we had in Cannes.

This classic bistro serving authentic local cuisine is nestled in the street that runs from the Croisette past the wonderful covered market from where it buys its ingredients daily and adjusts its menus to include the produce of the season. You can dine inside or on the pavement outside, our preference on a sunny day. The welcome and service are... More
