“Had expected more from the rating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

Everything was fine, the outside seating (had lunch there), service and the food, especially the signature salad dish with goats cheese.
But from number three on TA I would have expected more. The chicken salad was nothing special.

Dear dkbe,
Thank you for taking time to say what your visit at Cocoon inspired you.
As you mentioned, our food is meant to be simple because our concept is to cook like you could cook at home.
In deed, our salads are more simple than our dishes and we can understand your expectations were higher...
Happy to know you however enjoyed your stay with us.

“Gorgeous food and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Great food, lovely little menu (limited because everything is made fresh every day!). I enjoyed the creativity: goat's cheese on apple tart; tuna lasagna, and of course more classic things: burrata, prosciutto salad with whole wheat toast; quiche with salad, etc. The ingredients are fresh and the food is delicious. Quiche was gorgeous as was the milanese. It's so refreshing to find healthy, fun, varied menus in France so I highly recommend this place. If you want something classic, go to the old town area (suquet) or try a bistrot. Meals are about 15 Euros.

As one reviewer mentioned the chocolate cake (almost a moelleux) with nutella icing is delicious! The Irish waitress was lovely and even gave us suggestions on things to do in Cannes and other places for dinner, etc. Loved it and would return in a heart beat.

My wife is allergic to dairy products and they were very helpful. I can tell they know their own food and they have passion for what they make. Lovely lunch. Plus, they speak english!!
