I think it is about 6 years since we last went to Aux Bonnes Enfant. No real reason when we were in Cannes we would walk by and it was busy and people seemed to enjoy being there. So we decided to try it again. And we were not disappointed, Service was better than we recalled maybe it is due... More

We had a fantastic lunch here. We enjoyed the bone marrow dish, it was the best that we've had in France. The lamb stew was soft and very tasty. The accompanying potatoes gratin and eggplant fritters and butternut squash were very satisfying. The Creme brûlée was exceptional. Our waiter Cedric was most helpful in the selections and service.

Asked a local jeweller for a recommendation for country style dining in Cannes. They recommended Aux Bons Enfants. The waitress was exceptionally helpful in translating the menu, however the restaurant got very busy later on and not sure whether she would have had the time to give everyone the service she gave us. The food was typical French and very... More

We came across a written recommendation for this restaurant and decided to try it--glad we did! I am surprised by the negative reviews I've seen here, simply because I feel like we ate at a different restaurant. Our food was delicious, beautifully presented, and served in perfectly sized portions. We each had the set menu for 30€: I had the... More

After more than a dozen trips to France, this was the worst restaurant experience ever! Bottom line: over 80 years old, this "family owned restaurant" has apparently passed into the hands of indifferent third or fourth generation owners. It is tired, uncaring and in the end, horrific. Here are the details of our experience: Once seated, it took the waiter... More

There are many, many restaurants in Cannes but this one is not one we rate highly as they only take cash and not sure why?? the evening we came we were lured in by the many choices on their set menu which is fairly pricey and found half the items were not available or sold out. The fish soup was... More

Followed a lonely planet tip here... Pleasantly surprised. Bustling restaurant, homely decor. And the food was amazing, flavoursome, tasty and beautifully presented. Service was great too, patient description and recommendations of the dishes in English.

The food was glorious and sitting outside people watching added to the fun. Interesting menu, very well cooked. Extremely helpful when we lost our room keys. Only drawbacks no booking by phone, can by email and cash only.
