Loved this old-school seafood spot. Huge selection of oysters. We went with the house recommendation "medium" size, and they were huge - and delicious. Roasted jumbo shrimp were swimming in a rich garlic sauce. The star of the meal were the mussels in cream sauce. Outstanding!

Astoux serves an excellent seafood platter. Not cheap, but always consistently good. We enjoyed it with a delicious rose wine and for the first time also had dessert which did not disappoint either. An annual treat.

Enjoyed a huge plate of moules mariniere with lots of tasty bread and a bowl of chips. Decent price for this on the Cannes sea front - 18€. Good bottle of house recommended rose to wash it down, and charming service by a young english- speaking waiter.

We had an excellent lunch here. The assortment plate for 40 Eur is quite a treat and our Kids enjoyed a large pasta. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, the staff very helpful.

If you are going to splash out on just one lunch of seafood it simply has to be here. The clientele is wide and varied; oligarchs, families with gran along for lunch, young lovers, more mature couples. The fact is everyone comes here because it is the best. The menu is a bit opaque if you are not used to... More

Go early for moules farcie and whatever fish they suggest. This is NOT a place to see and be seen, rather one of the oldest establishments in Cannes. Local flavor and real good food. After 8PM you'll be waiting for an hour. No reservations. Fun.

We lunched here with friends. In the heart of Cannes' restaurant-mile this large restaurant specialises in fish. They showed us fresh fish but when weighed we gasped at the price. We ended up dividing a John Dory between 3 to keep the price at 30 Euros per head. It meant we did not get much fish. Otherwise the meal was... More

This is the place for sea food in Cannes. Great display and very nice atmosphere in a bistrot brasserie style. Good quality price for very fresh sea food. Although very noisy and table the one very close to the others. Great ambiance during convention show.

Situated very close to the Boulevard de la Croisette, and a short walk from the Palais des Festivals, Astoux et Brun is an informal seafood restaurant with sheltered, outdoor seating. A complimentary appetizer of snails with pots of garlic mayonnaise and vinaigrette, with rye bread and sliced white flute arrived promptly and was delicious. If you like a beer with... More
