It's hard to tell from outside how pretty this place really is. It's one of those restaurants that the locals frequent, mainly because the food is consistently good. The daily specials are always yummy and the wines are also good. Haven't tried the desserts yet but they're huge and everyone always finishes them, so I think that speaks for itself.

A really good find in Cannes. It's a little off the beaten track but still only a 1 minute walk from rue d'Antibes, so still central. 2 very friendly (and hard working) hostesses/perhaps owners. A fairly small (and quite noisy) interior section. I guess in summer they use all the pavement space outside too. Good menu with quite a lot... More

Ate here on the recommendation of staff at our Hotel (Renoir) - just off the Rue D'Antibes - a cosy little restaurant / bar. Reasonably priced French / Mediterranean food which was really delicious - and the friendly staff translated the menu for us! Highly recommended

Tucked away in a street off of Rue D'Antibes, Bistro Les Canailles serves up excellent food at a reasonable price. The menu is displayed on a sandwich board brought to your table for viewing. The escargot is served in a delicious pastry shell, no bread is needed. The beef with ravioli is served with a rich sauce and a melt... More

Had a lovely risotto here. Nice atmosphere too. Tucked away a bit but worth finding. Great for watching the world go by.

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.

Me and my friend came over this superb little french restaurant by coincident. The food was excellent. Really good french food, like duck w/home made french fries which I had and this course was fantastic (the sauce nam nam). The service of the staff (2 women) was also excellent. Smiling, helpful, no long waiting between the courses. The ambiance of... More

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
