“Really great seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

It's a long walk via La Croisette toward residental area of Cannes - Palm Beach but it is really worth it! if you're seafood fan - it's all fresh & diverse. I had oysters, salad with octopus & white wine. They have an inside room as well as an outside tables. The staff is nice and you cannot tell the same about guys from restaurants closer to the Palais de Festivals. Overall - excellent!

“The best fish we had in the region”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

We had the choice between tens of different fishes, all fresh from the sea. We had a very nice seabass cooked in salt to perfection. As starters we had small squids and a parillada of grill fishes, all excellent. We chose a local white wine from Provence which was superb. The service was perfect.

This is a great restaurant, a place where the food is good, the people and the atmosphere are nice with a beautiful location. A perfect restaurant for summer time.

“Fantastic meal on our last night in Cannes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

The concierge at the Majestic Barriere recommended this restaurant to us. We were looking for a great ending dinner in Europe before heading home after spending two weeks on a cruise. This restaurant was exactly what we were looking for. It spans two sides of a small side street in the old quarter. On one side, there is the open air seating and on the other there is the inside portion of the restaurant. There is a large iced display that contains all of the fish that is served that evening. They have a large array of choices. Our waiter was very helpful in the selection process. We had a variety of fresh salads (octopus, prawns, etc.) Then three of us had extremely fresh fish and the fourth had Bouillabaisse. All of us thought that it was one of the top two meals that we had in Europe during our visit to four countries. We also had an excellent Rose from Provence that was very reasonably priced. Finally, the desserts that we had were outrageously good. This was a perfect conclusion to our trip.
