Top notch service and quality and food make this the best place to eat in Cagnes Sur Mer. Whilst a little pricier than some places in the town, it's well worth it. Would highly recommend the duck for main which was superb.

Cycled from Nice old town for lunch. Le Bistrot is back in business, with excellent service and fine cuisine. Had to stop for a lie down on the beach on the way home...

This place is definately the best place to eat in Cagnes. The food is excellent and the service is friendly. It is slightly on the expensive side but worth it for a special occasion, last night of your holidays etc. I had the gambas and black rice and the mi-cuit au chocolat for dessert which was heaven with the yoghurt...

We came here last night for dinner. The couple who run it were charming and professional. The food (from a reassuringly shortish menu) was very good and varied. The ambiance on the terrace was pleasant. At 190 eur for 3 with wine and kir apperative we thought the price matched an excellent experience.

Good food, good service, nice place. We had four different main courses. I tried them all and the fish and seafood were the best., even if it all was good.

We visited this restaurant last summer attracted by the former fame of its then-owner and chef Jacques Maximin. We remembered Mr. Maximin from the good old times as the chef of the restaurant in the famed hotel Negresco in Nice. We were hugely disappointed. This year we returned to the Bistrot de la Marine upon reading about a new team... More

We went on my wife's birthday to this wonderful restaurant for the lunch table d'hote. It was just fantastic with both excellent food, all three courses, atmosphere, service and good wine list. We have a long history of eating in France and this was one of the best we have ever experienced. Price was reasonable. Met relatively new owners to... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening here and completely recommend. Under new ownership of Nicolas and his partner we returned to find a gentle and friendly reception. The food was tasty and the tandoori twist in the salad was a delight. The quality of the food was excellent and the price was fair as a consequence. €120 for 2 with wine... More

I am very happy to have tried the Bistrot de la Marine under its new owners. The meal I had there, the “Formule Déjourner” at 29 Euros for Entrée, Plat & Desert, was really excellent. The main course I had, a pavé de cabillaud en croute d’herbes, was perfectly cooked. (The preparation of a fish dish is my test of... More

This restaurant is a hidden gem in Cros de Cagnes, delightful people, wonderful food and an absolute must if you are in this area. The value for money is exceptional. We have eaten here 3 times in the last month with various friends of different nationalities and everyone has been most impressed.
