We dined at Chez Xavier for the first time in the summer of 2003, and have been returning regularly ever since. We're in Cannes 5/6/7 times a year, and try to fit in at least two, possibly three visits to 'Chez Xavier Pizzaïola' every time.
Service is always friendly. The style is buzy, the dining crowd is mainly local, not touristy - which in our book says Good Quality!
Over these 10 years, we've had
- one experience where the food was not perfect - the fries were soggy,
- one experience where service was not perfect, waiter was too stressed.
This is over the course of 10 years! What does this tell us? It tells us you can count on this place! They deliver, servicewise and productwise.
Their pizza-baker is an artisan, he knows what he is doing, and he does it wonderfully. The pizzas are thin, italian in style, baked in their wood oven and always tasty. There is a good selection of diffrent pizzas.
Their pastas are what we've had the least times I guess, but we have tried everything on the meny, and have been pleased every time.
Their meats are the hidden treasure. They use best quality pieces, cook it to your exact wish, and voila - you're left with a treasure to consume. Their diffrent sauces are good, and there are no short cuts, everything is made from scratch.
Wines are very reasonably priced. Starting at €3,5/glass, you find very decent wine at €17/bottle from Provence, and moving a bit upwards. We've had wine here that was substantially more expensive in other establishments in Cannes.
The short version: Christoph and his team deliver! We have a wonderful evening every time, as we did this evening. Thanks, and à bientôt!
