A typical small, family run restaurant in the French tradition. An interesting local menu with, unusually, large and well prepared vegetable sides. A pleasant atmosphere and good value.

Aux Bons Enfants is an authentic Provencal gem since 1935. Wonderful menu choice with excellent service. Cash only no credit cards, reservations a must. Hidden on back street Meynadier, well worth visit. MG,Cork, Ireland

I think it is about 6 years since we last went to Aux Bonnes Enfant. No real reason when we were in Cannes we would walk by and it was busy and people seemed to enjoy being there. So we decided to try it again. And we were not disappointed, Service was better than we recalled maybe it is due... More

We had a fantastic lunch here. We enjoyed the bone marrow dish, it was the best that we've had in France. The lamb stew was soft and very tasty. The accompanying potatoes gratin and eggplant fritters and butternut squash were very satisfying. The Creme brûlée was exceptional. Our waiter Cedric was most helpful in the selections and service.

Asked a local jeweller for a recommendation for country style dining in Cannes. They recommended Aux Bons Enfants. The waitress was exceptionally helpful in translating the menu, however the restaurant got very busy later on and not sure whether she would have had the time to give everyone the service she gave us. The food was typical French and very... More

We came across a written recommendation for this restaurant and decided to try it--glad we did! I am surprised by the negative reviews I've seen here, simply because I feel like we ate at a different restaurant. Our food was delicious, beautifully presented, and served in perfectly sized portions. We each had the set menu for 30€: I had the... More

After more than a dozen trips to France, this was the worst restaurant experience ever! Bottom line: over 80 years old, this "family owned restaurant" has apparently passed into the hands of indifferent third or fourth generation owners. It is tired, uncaring and in the end, horrific. Here are the details of our experience: Once seated, it took the waiter... More
