Warm ambiance, daily offers, good choice of wines

This little restaurant is located in the neighborhood of the city center. The ambiance is warm. At the board you can read daily offers. The wine list is hand written. You can find some good wines. We have ordered Foie Gras poele ( 18,50 €) which was served with black berry compote and... read more

Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Delicious menu that changes daily. I had sea food which was clearly fresh and cooked to perfection. The local wines are chosen well. The only down side is that it difficult to park nearby.

The playful nature of the menu (hand-written in a school exercise book) disguises the seriousness of the chef. This is classic French cuisine with a a small but nonetheless adequately varied menu and a good wine list. Be sure to book at weekends and while there are events on in the Palais des Festivals as you won't get a table

The menu card at Les Canailles is traditional French bistro at it's best. The cooking itself is flawless. Truly an excellent French meal. The atmosphere is modern, but cosy.

Easily the best restaurant in Cannes. Fantastic atmosphere and first class service from Carole and Lysiane. They really know how to run front of house. The food? Well Michel delivers - every time. And the wine - great wines which have been researched brilliantly and priced just right. Every evening there is an evening to remember. Oh, and I am... More

This pleasant restaurant boasts adequate dinner fare but, if you enjoy foie gras, try the Foie Gras Poele appetizer. As another reviewer has already posted, the dish is an escalope of the liver (not pate) and it was one of the best foie gras dishes I have ever eaten. My husband and I shared this appetizer, but next time I... More

a very sympathetic small restaurant with a warm ambiance and good food at a reasonable price. Starters were very good and the main dish was good. The service was good. However, the waitress could do their work with a happier and friendlier face. Still i can recommend the restaurant.

My favorite part of this visit was the fois gras which is served as the whole liver, not pate style which is how it's usually served. It was delicious. The other dishes were so-so. The terrine was alright, followed by the octopus salad which was neither here nor there. The interior design is in need of a remodel. I think... More
