If you ask the brilliant minds behind Le Petit Paris, Fanny and David Rolland, They will say “We were born in a restaurant, literally”. From Grandpa to father, the restaurant business has been a natural part of their daily life.

They decided 15 years ago to create their first restaurant in Cannes, Le Petit Paris, Parisian brasserie, located in the middle of the international film festival city.

In order to give the opportunity of an unforgettable experience in Cannes to their international clientele, they decided to run a business on the beach with the combination of well being, relaxed and lay down on the beach with a cocktail and enjoying a gastronomic food.

David and Fanny were always striving to be surrounded by great collaborators in order to provide a real “savoir-faire” to their clients. They have been known worldwide now thanks to their hard work and dedication.

Went here for my birthday dinner with my fiancé. The ambiance of the restaurant is absolutely amazing. Great decor and the service is unbeatable. Any worker passing by would make sure to check on us to make sure everything was going well. It’s a really nice fancy restaurant that I’d definitely go to again!

Le Petit Paris' Sunday brunch was delicious. The servers were very attentive and were quick to respond to requests. Very nice ambiance, would definitely visit again. The only thing I would change for next time is that their tables were very close together; I would like a little bit more distance for privacy between other customers.

Overall, it was a great experience.

I really wanted to love this place based on the reviews.
We came here for Sunday brunch. There are lots of options but no cooked food to order like many other brunch locations at this price point.
As for the food:
truffle eggs =ok not fantastic expected salmon and avocado and green salads =very good
Quiche= cold and tasteless
Beef, pork =tough and overcooked
The poached eggs were left in warm water which continued the cooking process so when you cut into the yolk, it is hard boiled.
Macaroons/lemon tart= very good and full of flavor
Chocolate mousse = pathetic lacking flavor
Nutella crepe=cold
Service was so so, but when I asked to change my bellini to a mimosa because the peach flavor was off, I was told that it could not be done even though the mimosa price was less than the bellini.

The overall brunch food quality leaves a lot to be desired. Perhaps it was just an off day. For the price of $171 for brunch for two, I just had a different expectation which was not met.

Restaurant is charming . Old building done over beautifully. Host very friendly and welcoming. Table was ready and wait staff didn’t rush us. Food was out of sight. Everyone’s order came out perfectly prepared and was delicious.
It is pricy but worth it all things considered.

The last three or four times we have come here the service has been extremely slow and the food below average. Wilted lettuce, soggy fries, meat both thoroughly cooked. Really sad to see this decline, as the service used to be superb and the food beyond delicious. Disappointing.

They are not flexible on anything. I made the reservation and tried to change it within the hour and they were going to charge me $25 per person and I had a party of 7!!! They asked me what my story was to change it to decide whether or not my reason was worthy. You cannot change anything on the menu. I wanted an entree from the DineLA menu which wasn’t on the regular menu and they said I could not order it unless I did Dine LA. Do not commit to the place unless you are absolutely sure you will eat there and will eat exactly what they make the way that they make it

Le Petite Paris is a wonderful looking venue with very attentive service and cocktails that captures the quintessential idea of the cocktail lounge however, it stops at the Bar... Out of the 3 dishes my guest and I shared only 1 ,The Duck Confit and albeit a tad over done, had all the decadent and blanced notes of a french dish while the other two, Lemon linguine and the Chicken, where either incredibly overseasoned or woefully underseasond. Though they surprisingly balanced each other out if take one bite of each consecutively, one of my friends exclaimed but I don't expect that to be on purpose lol. The most unforgivable sin came in the form of the Chocolate Lava Cake which was ordered specifically because it is “Supposedly” Impossible to do poorly, in this age of possibility they managed to make, not a cake, a veneer of chocolate incasing a ganache with the viscosity of water all while miraculously being at room temperature. I would love to come back one day to re-try this meal however, until that day comes I can only look at Le Petite Paris, unlike Paris, as a place to visit but not to stay.

We had late lunch reservations to celebrate my friend’s birthday and didn’t arrive until close to 2pm. There was only one other table just completing their lunch so restaurant was very quiet. Therefore, my assessment might be a little skewed. The place is beautiful, the “real European” Dover sole was expertly deboned at our table as it should be ( not the little fish that LA restaurants typically misidentify on their menus as Dover Sole). Outstanding! My friend and I split this for our main course and each ordered a starter. All food was delicious and elegantly served.
All in all, it was a very special meal. We will definitely be back.

The food overall was decent. Tried the truffle pasta and didn't wow me very much. The bourban taste was too overpowering and couldn't really enjoy the truffles. The filet mignon was buttery and soft and cooked to perfection. I wouldn't recommend the pasta but the steak was superb. Great for date nights and special occasions.

Went here for Christmas dinner, mainly because our first choices were either closed or booked solid. 68 bucks for a truffle pasta with ziti- not even handmade pasta. The cognac was not properly denatured, so it was a creamy very alcoholic sauce, but not in a good way. The filet mignon was requested medium and came out well done, the confit had a very unappealing sauce that did not complement the duck at all. Cheapest bottle of wine was 50! I barely ate my pasta. The one thing I did enjoy was the leeks. Oh the salmon tartare has a sweet crean sauce- what?

Although I liked the welcoming, much above LA average standards. The French know how to do this. The decor it’s certainly pleasant!
The price of the fare does not match the food overall quality & presentation. It’s important of course. My lamb shank was moist and tender but tasteless. The asparagus certainly stranged.😅The bottom portion oversteam.
The French soup was very good! Plenty of cheese & Very tasteful!
I see Le Petit Paris as an all classy place. LA needs more class all around 🤪😂
Hence, the music choice when we were there was more like a workout place. In a world of commotion and agitated people, It’s important to have music that helps us relax while dining.
It took way too long for the order to be placed, it Took even longer for the food to be brought to the table . And getting the bill was another 20 minutes. Everyone’s time is precious. But they were mostly pleasant; except the person/ garson who we asked for the music to be changed and he was a bit moody, saying; “that cannot be done”
I may give it another try in a few months to see if it has improved, before I can recommend it🎄
All the best guys we do like you! 🎄🧞‍♂️🍾🎼🎶

Upon arrival, my family and I were impressed with the Christmas decor and ambiance of the restaurant. We were seated right away per our reservation and attended by our waitress promptly.

We were first served the crostini with a butter creme. We were surprised that the crostini was stale and asked our waitress for some softer bread. The French baguette that was served to us as a substitute was redemption - freshly warm and soft.

From then on the night went on nicely. We ordered a couple items as appetizers including the foie gras with brioche, mussels and a charcuterie board - all of which were delicious.

Our mains included the filet mignon topped with seared foie gras and the lobster linguini. All of which were well cooked, especially the filets - cooked to a perfect medium rare.

Overall, the experience was a good one in terms of food and ambience. My only criticisms would be the lack of refinement displayed by the service and the off-putting staleness of the crostini starter.

The food quality at this restaurant is less than or equal to Hometown buffet. The prices are that of a high-end Beverly Hills prime steakhouse.
The food is just very very bad.
