“Seafood, Seafood and the busy streets of Cannes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

I've been going to the Cannes area for the last 10 years. On most trips we would not miss the visit to Astoux et Brun. Fast, busy and always full with excellent, very very fresh seafood. My youngest, 4 at the time experienced her first oyster at Astoux and always wants to return to eat the cockles prior to our standard Plateau de fruits de mer.
It is always memorable and the staff are friendly and helpful to an English man destroying their language when ordering.
We have recommended this place to numerous friends and we will continue going whilst on our trips to the French Riveria.

“Best seafood restaurant in Cannes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013 via mobile

I have been to Astoux close to 10 times, over the past 7 years, meaning that my opinion has not been formed over one lucky or unlucky evening. So here goes my review: excellent seafood, fresh and generous quantities. I also really enjoy the service. Fast, competent and not trying to push you out to get the next customers in (despite many queuing at the entrance of the restaurant).
I also like their tables, with painted tiles depicting fishes, urchins, sea stars etc...
A word of caution : do not go there if you are looking for a quiet place though. The place is lively, noisy and that is part of the attraction.

“Best fresh seafood!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

The place is full of both locals and tourists for good reason- the seafood is fresh, dishes are delicious and the value (for Cannes) is good. The servers are friendly and patient with those who do not speak French. They do not take reservations but we didn't wait either if the 2 times we dined there. It was a memorable dining experience!!

“Did not live up to recommendation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Our hotel recommended Brun for a late seafood lunch. We found the food average and the service lacking. Maybe we were eating too late, about 13:30, but we expected better. Also, located across from busy bus stop, so lots of noise.

“The best place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Fresh seafood! Very good taste!
The only thing I dislike is a queue at the entrance. Once I had to wait for half an hour to enter the restaurant.
