Last week we tried to have lunch here. We were seated at a nice table for two. The server brought the menus and took our drink orders. In a few moments the manager came over and told us we had to move inside because he could not seat a party of two at that table, although it was clearly a... More

We were looking for a light lunch as we had booked a nice restaurant for dinner that evening. Inevitably we opted for the set 3 course meal accompanied of course by the bread! The setting is great - directly overlooking the harbour and we were seated perfectly to enjoy it fully. Mal Assis is clearly popular and although quite early,... More

Well by now you know I am a seafood freak. And yes this restaurant serves seafood and yes it was good. Excellent fresh sea bass well prepared presented and cooked. The half crab looked good too. Lost half a star because of service, which is a little unfair of me as the waitress was great, but the restaurant was well... More

Staff here were very welcoming and helpful. They were very accommodating for my special dietary requirements. Also, food was fresh, tasty and great value for our evening meal. If you are struggling with your French they are happy to help by speaking in English when you need it. I would definitely recommend a visit during your stay in Cannes.

We had a good dinner and lunch at Mal Assis in July. We were Lucky to get a table on a Saturday night when an outdoor celebration was going on in the harbor area of Cannes. Restaurants were overflowing but we lucked out and arrived just as a table was being cleared on the patio. Fresh seafood and fish are... More

I have chosen this restaurant for Saturdays family lunch mainly because of the daily offer - veaĺ's liver and escargots. It appeared to be our best lunch of the 3 weeks in France, but must also admit the most expensive one, but we knew what we are going for. My daughter had moules frites, I beleive there is little to... More

We had the plat de jour and it was excellent - the service couldn't have been better and the food great - not expensive and drinks reasonable for Cannes- very pleasant and helpful owner and staff. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone who wants good value on Cannes Seafront

Yes this is a bsuy bustling place and perhaps the service could be better. However we had an excellent meal at a fair price. This restaurant based on our visit deserves a much higher rating. The set lunch was excellent quality and value with classic french disshes and seafood. If you're in a hurry go elsewhere but otherwise the food... More

Nice welcome , looks like a refurbishment recently , food good but the service was all over the place , service staff forget the customers are there and unfortunately do not "read" the tables. The tables are inches from each other customers bashing into each other trying to get to and from there tables and a number of wobbly tables.
