Terrible food! Horrible service! Will never go back! Was not surprised that the place was nearly empty!

“Definition of "average"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

If it was not on the expensive promenade in Cannes this would have been an awful experience!
But because the sea is just in the other side of the road and because you can see all the nice cars and outrageous plastic surgeries going by, it's OK.
The business model of this restaurant is: they will never come a second time so let's just give them enough to make the experience bareble and let's charge as much as we can - well, it works!

“general eat good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

nice view of the promenade and good value, what I didn't like when I gone back a second time middle of the week I felt a little unwelcome when I wanted to sit in the same area as before which was then closed due to low customer numbers

“MUCH BETTER THAN EXPECTED”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

We had 2 terrific dinners here in Oct. 2012. The food was excellent as was the service. I had an outstanding huge veal chop with potatoes and mushrooms, my husband had turbot with steamed and grilled potatoes and vegetables. We shared a peach creme brulee, wonderful, with a almond tuile., iced tea, hot tea, cappuccino 2 glasses of bordeaux and bottled water. The total was 113.40 euros, a super meal. Another evening we had two of truly the best gazpacho we've ever had, even in Spain, super rack of lamb (shared) with green beans and baked tomatoes and a delicious dame blanche ice cream sundae with bordeaux and iced t ea and bottled water the check was 83euros, all delicious and of course being on the croisette was a huge plus. This restaurant was a very pleasant surprise, it is so commercial looking and always busy we expected the food to be indifferent, but it is truly good food and worth a stop.

“Loved it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

It's a beautiful restaurant with great outdoors and you can breath In the gorgeous sea smell. Separated by the road , the beach is just a Stone throw away and at night you could hear the waves crashing against the shore.
