“Worth the landmark status (go at least twice)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Astoux and Brun--for all its pluses and minuses--is worth its storied standing among Cannes restaurants. On the suspect side: Yes, it's pitched right for the festival and convention crowds in a prime location. The convention pricing, fluorescent lighting, and the impressively reluctant service do little to draw in the doubtful. But these drawbacks do not challenge the fact that this is among the best seafood available on the Côte d'Azur, one of the many reasons why the place fills during the off season with Cannes families and the pre-party crowd. Go once to order the Assortiment Royal, their high-end platter of excellent crab, oysters, langoustines, and more. Go a second time to try their more modest regular offerings such as fish soup. You don't need to break the bank to visit a place like this, and the Cassis wines are excellent.

“Simply excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Everything we ordered including salads and desert were simply excellent. Absolutely the place to have sea food when in Cannes. Atmosphere and service was also notably good.

“relaxed and delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

an easy going restaurant that makes you feel special. easy to strike up a conversation with the people next to you. food was very good and the wine as well. great for a very long lunch from which you only want to go home and relax.....this location is good all year round, sun almost always shines and you can sit outside even during the winter months.

“Seafood and service great - we had to go back a second time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The restaurant was recommended by our hotel concierge, and it was a winner! The oysters were superb - fresh and juicy - and the other crustaceans and fish were fresh, well presented and delicious. The service was excellent and we were not rushed, even though there was a line up to get in.
There were so many delightful dishes on the menu that we just had to come back the second night to try different shell fish, as well as the delicious fish soup. It was a highlight of our trip to Cannes.
Hint - arrive early for the best seating outside.
