A little gem - the kind of address one would like to keep for oneself...Delicious cuisine in a very pleasant surrounding. Competent and friendly service. If you're visiting Cannes from abroad, this restaurant will give you a glimpse of the best local cuisine.

This is our second time and again the food was superb, refined and consistently good. The staff are very friendly, accommodating and extremely professional. Our friends recently visited a michelin star restaurant and commented that the food they had in your restaurant was far better. Thank you for making this evening a special one. We will definitely come back and... More

A few steps away from the busy Croisette and close to the most famous market of Cannes there is this little restaurant which I had passed many times without more than a glance. When a friend suggested dining there I did not expect to be taken to a trip for the senses. I ordered 2 starters instead of a starter... More

I have visited this restaurant a number of times and always appreciate the standard of the food. It had a Michelin star but lost it last year for reasons I cannot fathom. The highlight of David Vaques cooking this time was the black risotto with lobster and chorizo - a total surprise. Look at the photo. The prawn ravioli is... More

Dining at Bistrot Gourmand was one of the best experiences I had during my recent visit to Cannes. The restaurant is centrally located, but a bit off the beaten track, which is a great positive... less tourists and more locals. From the moment we entered the restaurant we were well taken care of. The service was outstanding as was the... More

We had a lovely meal last week, the stuffed courgette flowers were perfect and the bream fillet was equally good and not overcooked. Finally the tarte citron is a must! The reservation was easy, and was confirmed twice which is always a relief. Service was the one downside, sadly they have employed two very young girls who did a good... More

Since it is now their "slow" season, the chef closed the restaurant down and did a French cooking class. Of the 20 or so of us, pretty much everyone was a novice with a few exceptions. Chef was really patient and very informative. He took us to the market next door and walked us through telling us what he's looking... More

Our lunch here in Cannes was one of the best of our trip. A small, popular place, we were lucky to get a table right away (call in advance!). The mushroom ravioli with a truffle cream was so astounding that we immediately ordered a second one. Squash blossoms are popular on the Cote d’Azur but these were the best of... More

My husband and I decided to check out this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews. The restaurant is deathly silent. Our dinner was at 7pm and although there were at least a dozen patrons, everyone was talking in a low whisper. Some music or ambience is much needed. We were welcomed right away and taken to our seat. The restaurant was... More

After the service, instead of going back home, I took time to write you an e-mail to be renewed my excuses by explaining you that the apprentice had been clumsy and that we would have liked seeing you returning to offer you cups of champagne and make you discover our cooking. You left the restaurant by saying that you have... More
