“The best we've found in Cannes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

A really wonderful restaurant - with 5 stars on all fronts: Excellent food, warm atmosphere & friendly service. We live in Cannes, and rarely come across all 3 of these attributes in one restaurant. We chose the "degustation" menu - chosen by the chef. 5 out of the 6 options are things that I would most likely never have chosen myself... and all 5 of those were exceptional! Now that we've found this jewel, we'll be back.

“This husband and wife make a great team”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

We went back again after our first meal. It's a small garden atmosphere with lots of greenery and glass, so you lose the feeling of being in the city. A fabulous asparagus cream soup, and desserts that were amazing too. I always get fish when I'm near the ocean, and it did not let me down. Very creative way of presenting the food. Madame is warm and friendly. Easy walk from the Cavendish Hotel.

“First class, wonderful French restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Five nights in Cannes, dinner on three nights at the Cote Jardin (it was closed the other two nights, Sunday/Monday). This is a wonderful restaurant. The owners, Karine & Philippe, are such wonderful hosts. The garden setting is lovely. The food is first class, the wine list small but also excellent. Nothing is too much trouble for Karine and Philippe; we were looked after like family. And we were the only non-French speaking couple in the restaurant on any night. The other tables all looked like locals and regulars to us. Can’t sing the praises of this cosy restaurant enough. It is hidden away, and we hope it stays exactly like it is ready for our next visit (and the sooner the better).

“Make this your first choice.....in Cannes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We found this restaurant on our last night in Cannes. Staying at Le Cavendish on the Boulevard Carnot it was just a few minutes walk away. We wish we had visited earlier so we could have returned. Apart from Le Chantacler in Nice (at three times the price!) this was probably one of the best meals we had during our two weeks on the Cote d'Azur.
The choices for us were the menu card at € 31 (1 starter, 1 main course, 1 dessert) or the 40 € tasting menu (6 courses selected by the chef). We chose the 31 euro (£25) menu ....with the English translation. The menu has changed since our visit so you will need to visit their website to see the current choices but our's were: Starters...mackerel terrine, goats cheese fritters, Mains...cod on bed of mushrooms, large gambas fritters, Desserts...mini sponge desserts, strawberry & pistachio gratin. Our English translation does not do justice to the quality, presentation and taste of these dishes. Everything done with a delicate touch.
Others have commented favourably on the setting and service and we can only endorse this.
This will definitely be our first choice when in Cannes again

“wonderful little neighborhood restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

Our first night in Cannes the owner of our hotel recommended that we dine at Cote Jardin.
The garden setting is quiet and beautiful - you would not know you were in a city.
The staff was very helpful as our French language skills are quite limited but we ordered from a
menu that gave my husband and I each very good choices and the food was fabulous.
The owner also helped us choose a great bottle of wine.
We loved it so much we went back a second night during our stay in Cannes.
We still say it was some of the best food we had during our 3 weeks in France.
