The energy and atmosphere are wonderful. The food is classically French. It's a great distraction when you want to be in France!

My wife and I were visiting in Carytown and decided to do lunch at Can Can, about as close to a French bistro as you can get in the US except its size which is bigger than most French restaurants. I had a sandwich and my wife had a salad. Both were very good. They do little things right here.... More

I came here for brunch with my mother. We both enjoyed our breakfast. I was a little concerned that my French Toast would be overly sweet but it was perfect. My mom had the mocha coffee drink with caramel and sea salt which was also perfectly balanced and not overly sweet. This place was happening, the decor was spot on... More

I've been to Can Can many times but never wrote a review. I love. The atmosphere is great and the decor definitely brasserie like. It is a very busy environment so maybe not suited for a quiet evening. I've been for lunch, brunch and dinner. Very large quantities. I love the Salade Nicoise(lunch/brunch), and hanger steak. The menu offers many... More

Have tried several different Breakfast items. Always superb presentation, service and taste! Always busy during brunch, which tells you something. Only difficulty is parking. Good idea to make reservations, even fro Sunday Brunch. A little pricey, but worth the cost.

Can Can is a very large and somewhat loud (noise level) restaurant. We were afraid from the instant we walked in that it was going to be all show and not great food. The wait staff is knowledgeable and attentive. The menu selections are what you would expect in a Paris Brasserie. The food was delicious! The moule and frite... More

This gem of a restaurant came on recommendation from a friend. Went there for lunch and had a tough time deciding on what to have. If you like fresh bread, quiche and a glass of good french wine - that's the place to go! We shared the quiche lorraine and salami baguette - delicious!
