Chef using the discipline of his Japanese roots in a delicious French way

Always difficult to choose a restaurant for Christmas Day as often menu’s are too eager to try and please, overdone and too rich! - In the case of Deux Canailles, a small compact but comfortable restaurant down the road from Lac in the Massena area of Nice, the service was very professional and the... read more

We first learned about this charmer from an online video review I found at the New York times website. The Two Scoundrels, Laurent Inoue (maitre d’hotel) and Tsumoru Takano (chef de cuisine) self-described as “great lovers of gastronomy and arts of the table” opened this upscale eatery in February of 2011. My husband and I had a unique dining experience... More

Enjoyed our meal in Les Deux Canailles in Nice. We did not go for the more expensive option, but went a la carte, which suited us better. Whilst we enjoyed our meal, I would not be saying Wow. As the price was much more expensive than anywhere else we ate in Nice I would be expecting to be able to... More

The three of us are not easy to please. But this was very good indeed. Others have said about the quality of the food - excellent. What impresses as well is the service -perfectly timed. The 49€ menu is worth every cent. It would have been better to have seen the place with a few more people in it. The... More

We were a group of 8 Americans, recovering from 3 days of conferencing. Les Deux Canailles provided a masterful degustation, with tasteful wines, and a real variety of dishes. The service was excellent, and the atmosphere extremely friendly. This was the best dinner we had in Nice!

I know I'm not the most critical of reviewers, but this French restaurant with a Japanese touch deserves more than the 5 stars available on Trip Advisor. The unique natures of the dishes served and the mixture of tastes and textures they offer, as well as the generous and delightful desserts, make Les Deux Canailles a must dining experience during...

This place is a hidden gem. It's slightly on the expensive side but the money is well worth it. We ended up doing the 3 course menu. All the dishes were executed perfectly and what makes this place interesting is the small Asian/Japanese details that have been added to the French cuisine. The service is typically Asian. Efficient and understated.... More

Je suis habitué des restaurants réputés et décorés au Michelin. Même si les deux Canailles ne sont pas étoilées, elles le mériteraient bien plus que certains. Un sans faute du début à la fin, un grand BRAVO. I'm fond of good restaurant and already ate in multiple ones recommended by the Guide Michelin. Even if they are not "Starred" already,... More

This restaurant came highly recommended and we decided to try it over some of our old favourites. Big mistake. First do not order the more expensive menu, all you receive is one very ordinary extra dish that you would probably in the end prefer to leave out and a poorer selection of entrees for a lot more in cost.
