“Glad we are not hypertensive!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2011

Well, after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor we were excited to discover a place we did not know in the area. The third best restaurant in Cannes, wow!
Our conclusion after trying it is: It must be #1 by far for the use of NaCl. . Interestingly, after the appetizers we asked the waiter if the chef could limit the use of salt in the main course." Pas de problemes" he said! Came the dishes and it was even worse. The gratin dauphinois tasted like it was baked in the Dead Sea. When asked another waiter showed intense surprize and said the chef uses only very little salt....
This convinced us that this place needed a little wakeup call here!
There is not much to hide though as the underlying food seemed OK. Not as great as suggested by other reviews, but OK.
Besides, wines by the glass are good and atmosphere not uninteresting.
We did not try the deserts as we wanted to stay away from possible diabetes!

“it's different...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2010

i just was there a few days ago because i saw the reviews here. so here my point of view:

+ food is very good
+ i was fascinated by how the food was presented

+ and - within 5 to 10min you had your meal (maybe a little bit too fast)

- you don't get much if you only take the main course (at least if you are a guy)
we had our starter after the main course, because we still were hungry. so i would advise you to take a starter (mine was bigger than the main course)

- ask for a place in the back of the restaurant it's much nice than in the entrance hall (maybe you need a reservation for this)

- music is also little bit to loud and not the right kind of music for a restaurant like this.

well it was still a nice evening.
(i wanted to take some photos, but it came a little bit too late to my mind)

“the best meal we had after 12 days in france”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2010

we were in france for 12 days starting in paris and worked our way south to the riviera. we had some pretty good meals and some average meals but were starting to get frustrated having not found that "great meal" we had been longing for in france. Then we ate at Chez Vincent and were thrilled with both the food and service. it is 1 block off the main drag and is not very large, but comfortable. both the waitress and owner made everyone feel very welcome with their teasing of each other and their attention to service. My teenagers had to ask me to stop gushing over how good the food was ! My wife and I have been spoiled by the quality of the food in Manhattan but we both agree that we would ranked Chez Vincent at the top of our all time favorite restaurants

“Genuine cuisine and friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2010

Just behind the main street that runs along the sea shore, you will find this restaurant in a small and quiet corner of Cannes centre.
Cuisine had this taste of genuine Provence without being spoiled by over tourism in this region. Fresh fish according to the day's catch, perfectly cooked.
Friendly and efficient service. Reasonable prices.

“Best Truffle Risotto”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2010

This was by far the best place we stumbled into in Cannes. The food is amazing and priced very well. We started with a warm bacon and goat cheese appetizer, I wish I could remember the name of it because it was great. I had the truffle risotto and it was to die for. The only reason I didn't go 5 stars is my husband had the beef, it was good but not great. We did have a problem though with the beef in more than one place so it could be us and cuts we aren't used to. We had great food and our server was very sweet. I think for the app, entrees and bottle of wine we paid right around 80e.
