Great bistro with a real chef!

Great bistro with seasonal menu prepared by a real chef, not a cook! Nice traditional dishes prepared and presented with care. Some inventive items on the menu, such as the crab roll, Vietnamese style. The foie gras poêlé is excellent, so the pot of rillettes and the carpaccio of small artichokes... read more

Me and my friend came over this superb little french restaurant by coincident. The food was excellent.

Smiling, helpful, no long waiting between the courses. The ambiance of... More

This little restaurant is located in the neighborhood of the city center. The ambiance is warm. At the board you can read daily offers. The wine list is hand written. You can find some good wines. We have ordered Foie Gras poele ( 18,50 €) which was served with black berry compote and gratinated potatoes. The taste was good as... More

Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Delicious menu that changes daily. I had sea food which was clearly fresh and cooked to perfection. The local wines are chosen well. The only down side is that it difficult to park nearby.

The playful nature of the menu (hand-written in a school exercise book) disguises the seriousness of the chef. This is classic French cuisine with a a small but nonetheless adequately varied menu and a good wine list. Be sure to book at weekends and while there are events on in the Palais des Festivals as you won't get a table

The menu card at Les Canailles is traditional French bistro at it's best. The cooking itself is flawless. Truly an excellent French meal. The atmosphere is modern, but cosy.

Easily the best restaurant in Cannes. Fantastic atmosphere and first class service from Carole and Lysiane. They really know how to run front of house. The food? Well Michel delivers - every time. And the wine - great wines which have been researched brilliantly and priced just right. Every evening there is an evening to remember. Oh, and I am... More
