“Great experience, lovely waiter, nothing too much trouble”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

Luckily we reserved a table, we arrived to find one other table occupied but the place was soon at capacity. We choose from go the Gourmand menu as it was Easter (it was either that or a la carte), the waiter took time to explain every dish, in English! Which was a massive help although we still managed a mistake, my son ordered cappuccino and poached egg and it was only when it arrived it dawned on us that it had milk and he is badly allergic to it - it was totally our fault but the waiter changed the dish with no problem and checked our other choices. The other dishes were faultless, the crime brûlée with a grand marnier shot inspired. We will return in a heartbeat. Rose wine at 19 euros a bottle stunning value.

“Great place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

Although quite small, with the tables standing fairly closely together, I can't give this restaurant less than Excellent. The food is super good, the service as well and it's very reasonably priced. I am never disappointed when coming here. If you want to go - it's best to book in advance, because even though the location isn't the greatest, it's often full.

“looking for something special, not to break the bank and easy access....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

Bistro Gourmand ticked all the boxes.....it was my Mum's birthday.....so special occasion, not an abundance of pennies in the purse ! parking in Cannes can be a nightmare, but just across the road there was the car park (with spaces on a Sunday lunchtime)
I had reserved a table just in case, the welcome was warm and friendly. We had two excellent starters.....Foie Gras (lightly cooked) with a plum crumble and Courgette flowers stuffed with goats cheese a very delicate mixture, and so crispy on the outside.....for mains we had a fillet steak cooked to perfection with a pepper sauce, but the sauce was left on the side, so it didn't smother the steak, you could choose to have it or not;....and a veal chop which was also delicious. Desserts were excellent also, but if you want the Soufflé you need to order it at the beginning of the meal, remember that. The strawberry Tiramisu was magic. We had a glass of Rosé each, and when the bill arrived I was PLEASANTLY surprised.....going back next week....staff work hard and look as if they like their jobs, questions were answered quickly and efficiently and truthfully too. A rarity !

“Only for french speaking customers”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

Was looking forward to a nice meal at this retaurant as the ranking is quite good, however the lack of an english menu ended the experience before it started. The staff did not explain anything of the menu in english. We have been in Cannes for 3 weeks and this is the first place where the language became a barrier for a good meal. If you are loocking for good services, this is not the place to visit!!
