We came there following the recommendation of a friend and couldn't thank her enough! It was a difficult choice between various good dishes, but both came out happy with our chosen dishes. And both my husband and i loved the wines they selected for us. Definately a resto i will return to in my next visit to Cannes.

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. For main, we had a great onglet de veau,... 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
