Excellent menu and service

We were seated on La Palme d'Or's terrasse from which one has a wonderful, panoramic view of the famous Boulevard Croisette and the beautiful Bay of Cannes and Esterel Mountains.

Great lunch, good relaxed service, good value. Quite possibly the best lunch I have ever had, and I am not unacquainted with michelin star- level restaurants. We brought our young children, and the staff showed great understanding which we greatly appreciated. The chef himself came to our table and seemed genuinely interested in making sure all guests had a great... More

This is a 2 star Michelin restaurant but should be 3 star! For our 25th Anniversary as we stayed at Martinez. Everything from on-line booking to end of night was top drawer. Only one sitting. Location at Croisette front on first floor so in spring evening sublime. We had full 'Collection' experience menu from champagne aperitif (vintage) to coffee. We... More

I had dinner her with a colleague and expected a really special experience and I was well underwhelmed. The meat was overcooked, and the vegetables were a little underdone. The desert was very good and the service was great but at the price i was not pleased.

I need to withdraw my review of this restaurant officially. I have to apologise sincerely as I made a big mistake. I do not live here and was with friends who do. They made the reservation at Hotel Martinez which is close to the Palme D'Or and so I thought that it was part of that restaurant. Please accept my... More

But more importantly chef Christian SINICROPI is the greatest and most unique asset of this restaurant. He combines his artistic flair exhibited in the beautiful platters that he has created with creative food beautifully presented that... More

Went to this restaurant for lunch with friends and had a good table looking out over the bay which was spectacular. A lovely restaurant with good attention to detail. The food tasted good and looked fabulous. We came away feeling that we had had a special experience.
