Great food

We arrived late at night and the staff was really accommodating, trying to put a table together for 6 people. The place was full and I was not surprised, given the quality of the menu! Very gastro, well above expectations, friendly staff (which is lux in St Trop) and good service. The only negative... read more

Es la cuarta vez que vamos en años diferentes y cada vez se superan. No dejar de probar la tosta de sardina y los tacos de ceviche / It's the fourth time that we go in different years and each time is better. Do not miss the toast of sardine and the tacos of ceviche

Loved the tapas- we shared seared foie gras, quesadillas, and calamari - fun atmosphere - happy we got a babysitter though - maybe too loud for kids. Also, great choice of wines.

I had asked several "locals" where they eat in town and I got the same answer, Bistro Canaille. They served us well. We ordered and shared two entrees, the pork and the squid. Both were a wonderfully flavorful. The staff were very understanding with our limited French.

We returned after a year for a second visit and we were welcomed by Vanessa as best friends, kisses included. Loved the calamars and the risotto with coquilles Saint-Jacques, again a very nice experience. I'll be back!!

The location is great, the terrasse is such a pleasant place to eat at. The food is good, but it is just too expensive for what you have in your plate. Paid 50 euros and was still hungry after leaving. The menu does not offer so much choice and there's no tappas to be shared. A bit too much for... More

We enjoy fine dining and the Bistro Canaille has great food. The menu has a good variety and service is excellent. It is expensive, but if you order carefully you can enjoy a nice dinner at normal prices. I would recommend this place for a good dinner in St Tropez.

A nice little place, very friendly and helpful service, food is 'okay', but I guess it's 'better' by comparison to a lot of the other St-Trop offerings ... our 2-course meal with bottle of wine for 2 cost €125, inflated by the €12 it cost for a small Poire liqueur .. with 'care' I guess you could dine for €50...
