In a back street do Cannes, not far from the Martinez hotel, this long standing family run restaurant never fails to please. Good honest food with a slight French take on some o f the famous Lebanese dishes, I always try to go onece on every visit to Cannes. Vary good value, particulary if there is a larger group.

Thank Paul C

Rarely does this combination come together. A rather long walk on the Rue d'Antibbes later, we found our way to this small but lively and lovely restaurant that serves Mediterranean cuisines. Located right behind the famed Martinez Hotel, the street is quite quiet. Hardly a vehicle moves. And hardly any sound. You know that you're nearing Al Charq by the sound of hip hop music that's played from inside.

Instantly aware that we are non French speaking, and also non Arabic speaking, all the three main bearers pounced on us to confirm, very politely, and sincerely whether we are unfamiliar with the language and/or the cuisine.

They recommended the platter for the four of us that included vegetarian items too, to suit some of us. A little while later, a platter that seemed like the base of a large pan the size of 3 large pizzas bases. Each of the dish, with specific emphasis on vegetarian dishes were explained, specifically and correctly to those who wanted it. What its made of, whether its hot or bland, which tastes better... just short of a cooking class.
Great food, filling well and crunchy stuff.

More than the food, it is the passion with which they treat customers. All three of them vied with each other to make us feel comfortable. Checking with us just at the right time (with an eye always on the status of food). The warmth they bring to you on a nice chilly winter evening is no small amount. The passion they show, the quick action mode of service, active and interested-in your-good-experience attitude is unbeatable.

Great place for a nice treat!

We are part time residents of Cannes and Al Charq has been one of our favorite restaurants for years. Family owned and operated, they take pride in the quality of food served. Typical Lebanese fare, including a FEAST
(mezze...say meh-zay) of assorted items, highly recommended. The fine selection of desserts are also exquisite. Finish the experience with baklava and sweet, hot tea, served with a flourish.
Al Charq has a sister restaurant in Paris. We have used the Cannes restaurant for catering a small affair and you can get deli/take out/Lebanese groceries across the street. We have never had a bad meal and the price is reasonable. Easy to find-just a few blocks behind the grand Hotel Martinez. Enjoy!

Always fresh food, lots to choose from, the sweets are freshly made on the premises, the service is superb, as are the wines...
In the peak season you may need to book for the evenings.
You can take away snacks like Sharwarma too.
Well worth a visit.

A true flavour of magnificent Lebanese food in the heart of Cannes, France. Just around the corner from the Martinez hotel this fabulous restaurant will not disappoint. Dine in or take out. A fabulous array of delicious Lebanese food prepared to perfection. Delightful array of deserts.
Locals love it and once you taste the food you'll know why.
