A must in Cannes

Classy, cosy and friendly restaurant with top quality food. I must state that I have never eaten snails and decided to try them here which was a mistake because I just don't like snails, not even bathed in Beluga caviar while sipping a glass of Don Perignon so the restaurant is not to blame for my... read more

hidden in the smaller streets of Cannes, you will find this almost perfect gem. Almost perfect, because, to put it bluntly, there way too many tables (thus couverts) in this not so spacious but very well decorated restaurant. The food is a feast for all senses, but again, on a busy day, it was a lunch with business associates for... More

My family had beef, duck and lobster pasta. They were all sensational and beautifully served. Waiting time was surprisingly short for the elaborate meal. My daughter had the lobster ravioli, probably the best she has ever had. The apple tart was excellent, we saw the chef literally slicing up the apple. Highly recommended is the Souffle! We were the first... More

I have visited here a number of times and never disappointed. Portion sizes are generous. The presentation is okay but the food tastes good and is well seasoned. Good value!

Light and airy atmosphere puts you in a good frame from the start. The service is as good as you would expect with some older staff who really know their stuff, polite and efficient. The food is very good and the menu varied, as is the wine list (although wines possibly a bit expensive end for good stuff). We booked... More

Seven times I have visited this place and I fall more and more in love with L'affable with every visit. Very well prepared food, the nicest staff and very good prices. Feels like home. ALWAYS end the nice dinner with a soufflé.... it is remarkable!! I love that you can see the kitchen while eating... nothing to hide. Everything is... More

I hosted a dinner during MIPIM- so you know everywhere is hustle & bustle. Though we had to wait 40min to be seated (not their fault) they provided nibbles & wine for us & our guests. An intimate venue that serves fabulous food - we've used the venue for several years now.

I attended a business dinner here and whilst the restaurant can be a little snug, the atmosphere is super, the menu varied and the quality and presentation of the grub is very good indeed. The rack of lamb, Sean bream and especially their French interpretation of a prawn curry was an imaginative treat. One of my favourites in Cannes.

After having done the reservation and entering the restaurant we needed to wait until a waiter has seen us what took some minutes. After checking the reservation we got guided to our table. The restaurant looks elegant. The room is overloaded with tables. The distance between most tables is 5 cm. The distance to the next guest is 20 cm.... More
