If you are looking for a decent restaurant there is ample choice along Le Suquet - some more touristy than others but generally speaking it should cater for most tastes. The road is pretty steep and care would need to be taken if walking down in the rain after a few glasses of wine! We loved the atmosphere.

For sure Le Suquet is the best area of Cannes, it is here you find all the nice cosy restaurants and bars and you avoid all the typical traffic which is all over Cannes

A visit to Cannes would not be complete without a walk in the Suquet area - the old town - where you will find nice restaurants and quaint little shops. Climb all the way to the top of the hill for some beautiful panoramic views of the city. Worth-visiting!

We loved the vibe of this old part of Cannes and enjoyed the restaurants and bars. A walk up to the top yields a great view of the Croisette from the ramparts of the old fortress/monastery. The lit up church face was beautiful at night. Also, a great place to see through windows and into the lives of locals eating... More

We went to Nice in Christmas holidays and struggled for time to cover our wish list. However Cannes was in the top priority of our wish list, not only for nice view of sea but mainly for witnessing the place for film festivals. We developed the following itinerary for our 7 day Nice trip and kept Cannes on 3rd day... More

Not much too say, really not that quaint or large, pretty boring in fact. A very few of the restaurants are good.

Yes its best to visit "Le Suquet" away from the Holiday season, to appreciate this old area of Cannes, far from the madding crowds. The walk through the small narrow Streets traffic free, where one can meander and visit the small shops and bars. When you arrive to the highest point of Le Suquet with the old Church in the... More

Perched on a hill above the old harbour; worth the climb for the quieter ambience and excellent views.

If you were to visit Cannes and failed to find your way up these cobbled streets, you have really missed out. Character and atmosphere abound. A huge choice of eating places all the way up, and the views at the top from the ramparts by the church are superb. There's a town museum up there as well.
