My daughter and I visited this restaurant at the end of August 2013. The staff were pleasant, but pushy, especially when trying to get people into the restaurant and asking if you wanted anything else. They also never commented on the fact most of our food went back. Unfortunately we gave in to the nagging and agreed to eat there. This was a mistake. The food was poor, and that is being polite. I had fish soup that did not taste of fish, remember this is in Cannes so no excuse for not having fish. My daughter had basil pasta and that was just cheap penne pasta with basil oil over it and tasted foul. The mains were no better and the puddings were awful. My daughter's chocolate mouse was solid and like concrete. The wine was good and the service was fast, too fast for the food to be made to order. No sooner did we give up with the starters then the mains arrived. It felt like you were on a conveyor belt. No care, no time to sit and chat. Also the tables were way too close, there was no room between them, so we could hear everyone's conversation.

Overall a big thumbs down from us.

We were really pleased with our choice to eat here. What a great little restaurant with a very welcoming owner. The food was delicious, we had prawns and moules etc . It was beautifully cooked and one of my sons thought it was the best spaghetti bolognese he had ever had. We thought it was a brilliant value for the quality of the food. It had a great atmosphere and we would certainly recommend eating here. It felt like a genuine little place. The only thing to be aware of is that it doesn't except cards.

If you need a fast meal of basic French food this is the place. The menu is never changing, but it works well here, since they make that well. To This is what I will call value for money, relative good quality to low price. The staff is a study in in own right. They work like a well services machine bringing food at top speed - so don't expect to have a long romantic evening here:-)

What an amazing surprise this place was. A tiny restaurant, with a fabulous set menu, excellent price, and entertaining hostess! Our party included 1 vegetarian, and 3 meat eaters, the kitchen was very accommodating in adjusting the set menu to suit a vegetarian. We ordered some local wine, relaxed, and enjoyed the vibrant conversation with the Hostess who did a great job speaking to us in English as we do not speak French. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals, particularly the Zucchini Flowers, the Duck and the Chocolate Cake/Tart (the BEST chocolate cake i have ever had the pleasure of tasting!!). If you only eat in one restaurant in Cannes, it has to be La Farigoule!

Very tasty food, seasoned with garlic and local spices. Excellent provençales tartes and rosé wine. Not a huge menu, but everything in it has to be tasted. A must try: pfeffer steak, aka coeur du boeuf, tarte au limon ou orange, fleurs de courgette with a very nice garlic, spicy seasoning. It's not cheap, however reasonably for Cannes. Tip: book a table, there are only six 2 seater outside and maybe eight outside.
