Pleasant atmosphere and very good food

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

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
