“Excellent food, unique experience however...”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

I booked this for a birthday dinner with friends. It was a divine and beautiful experience. However some things to note and things I suggested to Eliane. Her place is perfectly located but the apartment can get very warm/hot/sweaty. I suggested some fans to cool it down when she's cooking. Our group would have also loved some music to be playing as we found it very quiet. We ended up playing music off of our iPods/iPhones which worked okay except we had no speakers.

Lastly you should be aware that you have to pre-book and if anyone cancels last minute you're still on the hook for their dinner payment (in full). In our group one of my dinner guests got the flu and messaged me a few hours before telling me she can't make it and her full meal was still charged to my credit card. I asked Eliane for a refund but this is their policy. I understand that as it's a small boutique operation and she had to purchase all the ingredients the same day and it's all fresh that she still incurs cost. All that said I wish the cost could have been reduced or refunded at least partially as we literally had an empty seat at the table and I had to pay for it regardless.

HOWEVER I cannot say enough about the quality of the meal. Truly one of the best meals of my life.

“A unique night out!”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We joined Eliane for a dinner in her home. We were a party of four and interested in this concept.
It was a lovely evening with a four star menu! The setting is delightful and Eliane is a great chef and an interesting life with many stories. The menu was taken from all the local ingredients and everything was tasty, especially the salmon. Would have liked to have taken her cooking class! So if in Cannes, do try dinner with Eliane or sample her cooking class. You will be sure to be delighted!

“Great cheese, great wine, great conversation”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

We visited Cannes as part of my girlfriends birthday celebrations and following the recent reviews decided to give the cheese and wine tasting a go. We were not disappointed. We had a great afternoon did not feel pressured and very relaxed. Elaine is a very interesting lady and thoroughly enjoyed her company and hope to meet up with her again when she visits London this summer. Highly recomended!

“If you go to Cannes, you must attend a class”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

My wife and I signed up for Eliane's bistro cooking class because we both love steak and mashed potatoes done the French way. We also have close to zero experience making it. What better way to learn about French cuisine than to have someone who's worked at some top-notch restaurants and catered to many celebrities teach you how to cook? You simply cannot pass up this opportunity.

It was an intimate affair - just myself, my wife, and Eliane. I could not have asked for a better setup. Eliane was patient and charming while she explained the steps necessary for me to make the steak, and also indulged us with tidbits about French cuisine and the French way of life. It felt like magic seeing the raw ingredients we had transformed over the course of some hours (I was slow) into, I dare say, food that I would imagine eating at a restaurant.

Not only do you learn about the cooking process, but also about kitchen organization and plating. Eliane readily answered the billion and one questions I asked her. We stayed late into the night chatting about life. I can't imagine a more perfect experience.
