“Top Class Simplicity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Just went from Nice to Canne's for a look and based on previous reviews decided to have lunch at Cocoon.The Owner is a great host with friendly staff that make you feel at home and are very professional.
All the food is prepared on the day so freshness is primo but also means get there early if you don't want to miss out.The menu is on a blackboard done daily for the changing fresh produce.I had the mixed plate of all specialities and my girlfriend had the goats cheese salad.Both where superb along with the glass of ros'e.They bought out complimentary fresh watermelon and rockmelon and the waiter also gave us a sample of their homemade ice-cream which again was great.

“Best lunch in Cannes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

Wow! When they suggested I try the apple tart and goat cheese salad I thought twice. I can truly say, don't think, just order. The best possible salad I've ever had. Please share the apple tart recipe:)

“Excellent lunch spot.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Great place with organic food near Palais de Congres. Healthy salads, decent tartar and delicious homemade deserts. We will come back for sure.

“Best Dessert Ever Made”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

The food at Cocoon is always delicious, and I make a point of stopping at least once for a meal during the Cannes Film Festival. But their chocolate cake is the best thing I've ever put in my mouth. With just a touch of flour, it's warm and gooey (is there a French equivalent of that word?) and the Nutella frosting adds the extra decadence necessary to make it truly memorable. Don't miss it.

Hi Judy,
Thank you so much for your review. I remember you loved the chocolate cake, so here is the receipe (you will need to convert the gr to pounds) :
8 eggs
400 gr of dark chocolate
300 gr of brown sugar
200 gr of salted butter
100 gr of flour

Melt the chocolate with the butter until they are fully mixed
Mix the eggs with the sugar until they form a foam
Add the chocolate mix (still warm) to the eggs and sugar
Add the flour in one go

Cook in the pre-heated oven at 180°C during 15-20 mintutes.

Once the cake is cooked and cooled, top it with 3 big spoons of Nutella and ENJOY !!!

See you soon

“Delicious home made food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

We went for brunch and arrived early around 1130am, having been drawn in by the fresh baked goods (fruit tart, chocolate cake, fruit salad, tarte tartin) sitting on the window bench. This meant they were not ready as the menu changes daily and is handwritten. We waited a long time for service and finally a very nice waiter came out to the terrace to explain. We decided to wait and were not disappointed with the food. We had house style moussaka and salmon tart with salad, both of which were delicious. The service was a little off - the waiter forgot the bread basket so our French neighbours offered theirs to us! The staff seemed more interested in talking among themselves than to guests but this was perhaps a function of them gearing up for lunchtime service. Go for the food though.
