Located right on the beachfront, it would hard to imagine a better setting to enjoy a lunch in Cannes. The delicious lobster bouillabaisse is more a like a pie as it comes with a pasty topping. There must have been a nearly whole lobster in this. The salads were huge and beautifully presented. The service was first class.

We had a great lunch here and then spent the afternoon on their beach - a perfect way to start and pass an afternoon. The food was good, the service was friendly and reasonably efficient (not slow but sometimes a little random), they have some nice wine and it's not too pricey. Book in advance.

Went for lunch on a hot day. Great to be by the beach and with a glass of rose. Very good service and a lot of choice on the menu particularly liked the fact you can choose a lot of the salads and options as either a main size or a starter size. Great foie GRAS, terrific fish and gorgeous... More

It's now been 15 years that we've been lunching at L'Ondine. It's always been good. Now it's even better. The new young owners have spiffed things up, refurbished the terrace and changed some of their suppliers. The food was scrumptious. The service is better than ever. For those of you visiting Cannes there are many choices on the beach along... More

You would certainly need a reservation in the summer and in October on a beautiful day it is the place to be. If your budget is a little tight you could do with a starter salad for lunch and a half bottle of wine. If not then enjoy the presentations with gusto. My partner and I have been there many... More

A real beach restaurant. You sit a few meters away from the sand and the deck chairs. As the beach is quite full with these, you only catch glimpses of the beautiful blue water. But it's a very nice location. The style is as you might expect it, casual. It's only open for lunch on most days and you get... More

We arrived at lunchtime at the beginning of the Cannes festival amidst a flurry of self-important badge-wearers making for a highly amusing people-watching lunch. Our waiter was extremely efficient, the food was good but expensive, a chicken wing + fries for the children was 18€! My salted cod was copious and tasty @ 23€ - you pay for the atmosphere... More
