A very good all round restaurant right in the centre of Cannes, just set back from the Croisette. The sort of location where you could easily get ripped off and have a bad dining experience. We went for a pre-cinema meal with friends. There was something on the menu for everyone, the price was correct, the food excellent and the... More

L'Avion is just back from the Croisette and is notable for having most of a mangled light aircraft hanging from the ceiling. The offer was good and service was quite quick, but there were only two tables occupied when we arrived. I don't recall there being a kids menu so mine split an adult pizza. The pizza was ok, but...

Pleasant service. Pizza fast but not memorable. The other reviewers must not know what pizza tastes like. Nice value for what it was.

Cannes is not the cheapest place to eat, but this restaurant was very good value, with very good food presentation, coupled with efficient pleasant service. There were seven in our family group including three young children. The childrens' meals were produced promptly and were appetising. Three of us had the 'plat du jour' -it was canneloni of salmon, spinach and... More

Excellent value - good simple and delicious dishes, generous servings, all prepared by a proud Italian chef. Virginie, the new owner / manager, ensures great service and friendly fun atmosphere.

L'avion is well situated to grab a bite in Cannes, whether shopping or at the Palais. The thin crust pizza is above average and the menu offers a few more standards such as calzones. It's not a big place and outdoor seating is very limited. Expect service to be adequate but not overly friendly. With these things in mind you... More

Our family of five (3 children ages 12, 11 and 9) dined in this restaurant on a Saturday evening in September. No reservation was needed and we were able to sit right away. The pizzas were the traditional northern Italian, wood oven-fired pizzas that you find all over Europe. Nothing out of the ordinary, but a filling meal with decent... More

We fell across this restaurant by accident, it was late and we were starving. I really couldn't fault it, even at 10.30pm the staff were upbeat and laughing, the service was perfect and the food delicious (real wood burning pizza oven). Although off the main drag, there is a lot of passing folk walking down the Croisette, so it is... More

Amazing pizza in a wood burning oven! The staff are fabulous and the service is second to none. My favourite hideaway in Cannes.
