“What a great find.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

We had actually been recommended to go to the restaurant next door but are so glad we didn't.
The greeting was very friendly and the explanation of the dishes very helpful. This is a tiny place with about 24 covers and a kitchen so small you would definitely not be able to swing a cat in it. How they manage to produce such wonderful food is a miracle. We all had the deep fried courgette flowers to start. they were crisp and very tasty, served with a lovely garlic mayonnaise. The main courses too were well presented, tasty and very filling. After our meal we were presented with a complimentary glass of orange wine. Delicious!! This is a great place set in a street behind the main Cannes strip.

“Sublime restaurant, le meilleur de Cannes.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012

The best restaurant in Cannes, my favorite from 4 years.
Amazing food, very kind and familiar people.
Lilly, Patricia, Karine and everyone there are just like a family to me. And their Steak Tartare is the best in the world, the same for the desserts and everything else.
La Farigoule...je t'aime! A très bientot.
Alessio.

“Such fun! Gutsy food in cosy surroundings.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2012

We were drawn into La Farigoule by the warm lighting and decor, fairylights and red checked tablecloths. Small intimate little restaurant with a big heart run by a full-on over-the-top turbo-charged lady! When you meet her you will know exactly what I mean!

I loved that as soon as we were seated we were given a basket of bread, water, a plate of canapes (little squares of onion tart) and a glass of something-to-be-going on with while we studied the menu and wine list.

We both started with fried courgette flowers which came with a spiced rouille style dipping sauce. Courgette flowers are seasonal and it's a short season so I wasn't going to miss them!

I followed with a very traditional steak with peppercorn sauce and my husband had chicken in a creamy mushroom sauce. Both came with the best-flavoured sautee potatoes I have ever had and a gorgeous tomato gratin.

In spite of being fairly full we managed to share a lemon tart and a creme caramel.

Excellent value at 16 euros for three courses. This place fills up quickly as the number of tables are limited and has many regulars. It might be a bit rustic for some but we loved the honest gutsy food and the fabulous friendly atmosphere.

“Little Gem in Cannes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2012 via mobile

Tiny cute restaurant. Excellent value. Fresh tasty food and delightful service. I had the chicken liver salad to start and the fresh line fish grilled with olive oil. Passed on the desert that was included for 16 Euro as I couldn't eat another bite.
