Well worth the decent reviews received through Tripadviser. Food was excellent and service was good too. Booking recommended. There are limited tables outside and, as we didn't book we had to have a table inside.

Armed with a great Michelin rating, we decided to check out this restaurant, and as the rating suggested, it was great!! Our waiter, Philip was humorous, interactive, prompt and an excellent host for our dining experience. The food was delicious from the chicken coconut-curry special to the scallop entree but the most fun was around deciding on dessert. With an... More

The kind of gems that it is great to find on here. I might have thought it was a cute brasserie walking by, but the food is so much more. I now always go at least 2 or 3 times vert time I visit Cannes. Great mix of French classics with some subtle Asian influence in the way the chef... More

We had a very nice dinner and evening at La Meissouniere. The service was very good, polite but with an edge and a sence of humor. For starters we had Bourgogne Snails & Marrow bones on Poilâne toast. The snails were perfectly cooked and therefore very soft and delicious. The marrow bones was a very nice and big portion. We...

It's off the beaten path but eating here will be well worth your while. Claire, the owner and her staff make you feel at home and offer unbelievable down home, high end cuisine. Her Salmon Tartar is better than any in the area and the rib eye for two with bone morrow is an unreal experience. It's a quaint restaurant... More

We had nice, delicious and quick -but not rushed- lunch. Beautiful carpaccio, delicious Magret de canard, perfectly cooked...and an awesome Chou Chantilly for desert ...still mouth watering when typing this review....It was hard to choose from the delicately selected dishes....Thanks Chef.

The food was great. Nothing really fancy just good food. Salmon pasta - perfect pasta, generous quantity of salmon - very simple dish perfect. Beef stir-fry - good quality ingredient, perfectly cooked. Fish - fresh and well cooked. Good price. Service, hmm ... first visit waiter avoided eye contact all the time which I find off-putting. Second visit he tried... More

We had an superb dinner at La Meissounière. Traditionnal French dishes are excellent and warm welcome from charming chef and owner Claire adds to the great experience. Highly recommendable place for those looking for a real French meal in Cannes - much better than overrated touristic places on la Croisette.

We went to this restaurant as a suggestion by our tour agency. It was a nightmare. The worst French cuisine I've had in my life. I have been living and working four years in France. For starter we ordered "escargots" bad enough. For a main plate, I did ask for a rare onglet, believe me I knew how rare French... More

Stopped by for lunch and was amazed at quality and value so went back for dinner, It is located in a busy street between Rue Hoche and the Station. We chose to sit inside which reminded us of many similar bistros we have visited elsewhere in France. The menu is also very un Cannes and has a much greater range... More
