A favorite of our family for the food, the ambiance and the authenticity of the atmosphere. French...French...French is the word to describe this place. Go...Go...Go, is my strong recommendation .

We've eaten here occasionally, and while the food can be good (but not great), and the atmosphere inside and out is pleasant, service is, in a word, poor. At our most recent lunch, outside, there were three servers attending perhaps six or seven tables. Water...More

Tried their happy hour recently and was very pleased. Great way to try a variety of alcoholic beverages and a few food options on the menu. Shrimp cocktail was tasty, very large shrimp. Excellent crusty French bread. Nice atmosphere, elegantly casual. Plenty of bar seating.

The atmosphere is so pleasant. Right in the heart of Carey Town in Richmond, this French restaurant welcomes you immediately at the front door. There is a flower vender there most days selling beautiful hand cut flowers. The waiters/waitresses are kind and offer their personal...More

Can Can is a wonderful spot to enjoy a meal or drink. The interior has a ton of natural light and the front window/wall opens up when the weather permits. Don't forget to ask for some of the complementary fruit and nut bread.

Love this off the beaten track restaurant. The menu is totally unlike anything I've ever tried. It's located in an area called Carytown. The uniqueness of this restaurant is in alignment with the uniqueness of the street where it's located. This is a must try...More

This rating is an average, and averages can be misleading. If you put your head in the freezer and your feet in the oven, you're at a comfortable average temperature. I point this out because the overall rating of 3 is the average of excellent,...More

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.
