“Good stylish restaurant in heart of Cannes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Great food, especially seafoof & fishes! Bustling atmosphere. Reservation needed. It's easy to find, in the city centre, close to the Palais. The portions are satisfaying so value for money

“When in Cannes...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

My wife and I had dinner at La Cave on April 8, 13, and 15. 'nuff said.
Since we were only two we would show up and try our luck with no reservations. Alain always accommodated us except for one time where he couldn't do anything since they were packed. But he was kind enough to personally escort us to Bivi which turned out to be an excellent surprise.

“Very French”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

This was recommended by the Concierge at our hotel and we did enjoy it. The tables are very close to each other but the food was delicious and they have a daily table d'hote menu at a very reasonable price...right in the centre off rue d"Antibes and an easy walk if you are staying in town.

“Tried again and disappointed again”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

This was our fourth visit to this cosy little French restaurant but probably won't go again, the service is a bit arrogant, the menu selection is limited, and the specials are not that special. On each occasion we have found the tables to be far too close together for comfort, they have just crammed in too many tables, it's very claustrophobic. In fairness they have now redecorated and upgraded the 'facilities' but I still can't find the same words of praise I had on the first experience? The entrecote steak, like, so any times in France was pitifully undercooked, I had requested 'a point' but got 'saignant', not good enough. I always try to speak French, but feel irritated when I go to a shop or restaurant and get a 'free enforced French lesson' ! Get over it, at least I try! The wine list is superb, however, extensive and expensive, but nevertheless some good choices. For the food, I am still amazed that the French consistently overcook vegetables, and even more amazed by the lack of choice of good vegetables. The complimentary Grappa offered at the end of the meal is horrid, poor quality and not at all in line with the high standard they are trying to achieve with their wine list, it really does leave a bad taste in the mouth. If you are looking for a cosy private dinner find somewhere bigger, so that you can talk without being overheard, even if it is a different language!
