Wonderful experience, friendly staff, good service, great food, lovely relaxing atmosphere. Five course menue for 42 euro per person including a glass of champagne, a glass of vodka with one of the courses and a boottle of wine for two, great value.

“Loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

We went here in June based on recommendations from T/A and because of the proximity to our hotel.
As you will have read it is a set menu of €42 each, but the value is really great - especially for Cannes. 2 starters, choice of main, choice of dessert and half a bottle of wine per person - great value.
The first time we went I had scallops and my partner a pepper beef - both very tasty. The included wine was possibly a problem as I forgot my camera at the table - happened to be our last night in Cannes before an early flight the next day!
We called from London once we got home and they said they would hold the camera for us. A friend was meant to pick it up for us but forgot so we booked another trip to Cannes and another dinner here!
Staff very helpful and friendly regarding the camera and dinner was great second time around - both had the rabbit and everything very tasty - would definitely recommend!

“So good we went twice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

We were looking for a welcoming and niche restaurant in Cannes and this one certainly met those expectations! After finding this restaurant through tripadvisor we first visited on a Wednesday night. We were greeted by one of the owners who sat us down and asked us if we knew what kind of restaurant it was. She was very helpful in explaining to us the set menu whilst having our welcome glass of champagne. They served us the first part of the starter which included a platter of saucisson, gherkins, pate and fresh baguette. This was followed by a small dish of smoked salmon and a surprisingly pleasant shot of vodka. The waiters then provided us with a bottle of wine of our choice (red, rose or white) to share between two. Over the two nights we visited, we had four different mains; lamb chops, quail, rabbit and duck each with a different sauce & vegetables. They also serve the main with potato dauphinoise. The main came quickly after the starter due to the owner asking which dish we requested prior to our starter. The dessert menu was simple, each time we tried the chefs special and the chef certainly delivered. If you get chance to meet the chef, I would advise speaking to him, he is really down to earth and has a passion for his dishes as he cooks alone. Both the chef and his wife speak good English which is very helpful for any couple who don't speak much French. As the title says, we did end up going twice in two nights, which I have not done with any restaurant before. As you can see, this 5 star review is not the only one, I would highly advise anyone in Cannes or nearby to visit this authentic, little magical place, it was the best value for money that we found in Cannes just to top off the experience.

“My repeat visit (excellent!)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

My second time to this restaurant, and what a delight - set menu, streamlined service. Food was superior. They have the 'fixed price' menu down to a fine art - from the terrine (super yum) to the dessert (the chocolate mousse was exceptional) and it was service with a smile, dining out under the Cannes twilight. Nothing was too much trouble, making for a wonderful dining experience.

“So good we visited two nights in a row - true hospitality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

A friend of mine and regular Cannes visitor had recommended La Brouette and raved so when we visited Cannes last weekend we had to try it! I adore Cannes but food and especially dinner can be tricky. La Brouette, however, has managed to crack it. A fantastically simple menu which offers a real taste of local and Provencal fare-we were the only non locals there as far as I could tell. We loved every element of the menu and the food was only surpassed by the service which was attentive (but not pushy) and incredibly friendly. We will most certainly be back and I hope sooner than next summer!
