Tucked away over looking dozens of petanque courts this restaurant offers a charming outdoor dining space or indoors if the weather isn't playing nice. Seafood specialists - I really enjoyed a cheviche of white fish served with tapenarde and grilled langoustines. The main course of a whole fish baked in salt was incredible. Served with various grilled vegetables. Happily I... More

Food good. Menu price quite different to final bill. How do you justify sea bream for 2 for144euros! Really felt we were ripped off. Will not return or recommend.

We come back to Fred L'Ecailler time and again each time we are in Cannes. We have never been disappointed. The fish has always been fresh, the service pleasant and the setup fine on a hot summer's night.

Fred L'Ecailler serves the freshest seafood, perfectly prepared in the simple and traditional way that does justice to the ingredients. It is not the cheapest place but they definitely deliver value for money... we loved everything we were served, and will have to return soon as we have to try the dishes that were served to other tables as well.

Amazing aperitivo on the petanque field + lovely fresh fish meal with rose and champagne. What a great place as well right on the main square in a quieter part of Cannes, perfect for a long summer dinner! Fred and his Cousteau-like red bonnet will be remembered and talked about !

We had the choice between tens of different fishes, all fresh from the sea. We had a very nice seabass cooked in salt to perfection. As starters we had small squids and a parillada of grill fishes, all excellent. We chose a local white wine from Provence which was superb. The service was perfect.

The concierge at the Majestic Barriere recommended this restaurant to us. We were looking for a great ending dinner in Europe before heading home after spending two weeks on a cruise. This restaurant was exactly what we were looking for. It spans two sides of a small side street in the old quarter. On one side, there is the open... More
