Great food and wine. Intimate bistro style restaurant with blackboard style menu. Good decor and ambience. The service was efficient. Would recommend to anyone. Good choice for couples.

My daughter wanted to celebrate their babies first trip to France. Her husband and she heard about this interesting restaurant where local restaurant workers go to dine. We had a delicious meal of foods and wines of the region. From our table outside we watched the chiefs prepare our meal.

We live in Cannes and used to love Les Canailles. We took lots of friends there, always had good meals and enjoyed the ambiance. Our latest visit was a total disaster. The server's rudeness was completely unwarranted. We are polite, we speak French and were prompt in our ordering. Then we waited. And waited. When the food finally arrived two... More

If you go to Cannes for business (twice a year for more than 18 years) it is rare that you find good restaurants you want to come back to again and again. Especially the ones you can go to on your own budget. This is one of those. The food is a cut above average, but the staff and the... More

This place is one of those that you would go to for brunch or for drinks and only if you knew exactly what you wanted from the menu. It is hidden in a back alley so you are best off going on to Rue D'Antibes and then into the by-lane where the restaurant is situated. The decor was warm and... More

Even in Winter traffic in Cannes is heavy and parking almost impossible. And they do not have the ease of the London black-cab to help getting around. If you can park, or have other means of transport, the Bistro Les Canailles is well worth the visit. It is small enough to be presided over by the two friends who own... More

Good vibrant atmosphere and always really busy, when I walk by My entree of pan fried escallop of foie gras was cooked to perfection, with an excellent, flavoursome sharp, rich, red fruits and red wine reduction. The crab rolls were a real disappointment, as they came unseasoned and stuffed with cream cheese Which made them very bland (for my palate)... More

Sorry to say but the Canaille did not live up to our expectations. The meat was not well prepared and the duck was overdone. The wine list is however a delight, well selected, but Canaille have to make an effort if we where to recommend a visit.

We found this place on a tip from a friendly local barrista. It has a cool and upbeat ambiente, definitely a happening scene and apparently beloved by locals. Although the menu was mainly geared around meat (an issue for my veg sister) we still found enough food to keep us happy. The salads were well dressed and good. We both... More

Great food at great price. Quirky with hand written wine list and cool way of keeping wine cold. Brilliant staff and well worth trying!
