My wife and I just ate at Can Can As always, the atmostphere is great. Food was quite good. Main issue is the service. We ate at the bar - the bartender is hard to stomach. Started off with a few minor issues such as...More

Recently ate there with family - party of 7. They took a reservation, food good, but service very, very slow. Portions large, probably oversized. Lovely French bistro atmosphere, long bar, private room available as well as outdoor seating.

The name might sound a little silly but the quality of the French food on the menu is excellent and well presented

Outstanding service. Very attentive. Excellent surprise dessert for our anniversary. Everyone in our party enjoyed the food and service and said they would return.

A local favorite and "survivor" with the turnover of local eateries, this is an excellent choice for lunch,dinner, brunch or coffee. Very French atmosphere. A true bistro. Excellent menu and service. Only drawback: it is noisy when crowded.

Ate there this evening on the off chance. Sat outside- maybe not as atmospheric as inside but able to listen to a good street musician. Extensive menu for beer and wine; chose a local Virginia Beach lager which was good and a glass of Merlot....More

I love the feel of this restaurant. It seems European. The croquet madame is my favorite thing here. That and a glass of crisp white wine is delicious!

We really enjoyed our breakfast. The food is simple - which is what we expected from a French brasserie, but the little details made it feel like a real vacation. The fittings in the bathrooms, the dishes, the festive look of all the pastries.

Can Can DOES offer a kid's menu! Les Enfants! I have taken my granddaughter there several times. The fresh fruit is a healthier alternative to the frites, (but the frites are great also). The grilled cheese is a favorite... More

We had a party in the back room for our grandsons graduation from University of Richmond. We made reservation a couple months in advance and it was excellent for a large group. They can easily accommodate that number.
