OK, but not great

As my wife and I were strolling by the old Port, we decided to give the Mal Assis a try. This is a very old restaurant in Cannes, and I had not been in many, many years, since I was a child. It was a so so experience and I'm not sure I will return. Location: placed on the quai... read more

We were taking a ferry to the Ils de Lerins, definitely go. This restaurant is very close to the ferry and we noticed the raw bar. We ordered enough for two which was plenty for the four of us. Oysters, clams, shrimp, snails, langoustine, lobster, crabs and on. Fresh and tasting of the sea. A perfect lunch overlooking the Cannes... More

Our favourite restaurant whilst we were on holiday in Cannes. We visited on our first night and last night and both meals were absolutely excellent and really great value. Some of our group had the fixed menu and this was excellent value and had a good varied choice on it. I had Beef Fillet and decided to have it cooked... More

We took a chance on this restaurant because the reviews we read were very mixed. We were not disappointed! The set 3 course menu was very good value for money and a bargain. We had moules, king prawns in a pernod sauce and crème brulee. The food was beautifully cooked and presented and we could not fault it. Service was... More

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
