Nice location close the sea. A complete set of dishes if you like seafood and fish. Oysters and mussels freshly served on nice iced plates. The ravioli is a must as a starter, smooth and nice if you don´t like Oysters. Good wines or champagne in excellent combination to the selected sea food from the menu is my recommendation.

Some years ago the restaurant was written up by Michael Winner who quoted Roger Moore as saying they served the best fish in the Riveria. Many years later, the fish is still very good although the overall experience could be better. The service from the owner to the waiters is ok. Efficient but not friendly. The two of us ordered...

I go back to Charlotte 1er every time I visit Cagnes sur Mer for their excellent seafood...boulliabaise, local fish dishes and their most excellent Plateau au Fruit de Mer, reasonably priced for two, but bountiful enough for three. Located on the Boulevard, overlooking the sea, a great location for people watching and sipping an aperitif. You know it's good as... More

I know Charlot since 15 years and every time we want to show our guests how the fish or other seafood shall be prepared we take them there. Fish is always fresh, so you do not know what is going to be available that very day, but whatever is served is fantastic. Very simple preparation, not allowing to mask deficiencies... More

Charlot 1er is a wellknown, highquality seafoodrestaurant placed on the busy street along the beach. Always something to look at. The staff is frienly and takes care of your orders quickly serving the very good seafood in a professional way.

This restaurant was recommended by the owner of our holiday house, we found it to be very good, bit pricy but worth it.

After the late father wife and son takes over and carries the place to a higher level.. 30 years in business.. Does worth the trip and every penny.... it is not a "inexpensive eatery"

3 mediocre pieces of ravioli swimming in sauce for 15 euro. A nasty crew of rude servers clearing before you finish chewing. The calamari was a heavy handed fry and salty but acceptable. Avoid, if you like good food, nice service and a good atmosphere as this has none of those

On the sea front with good views....great place to 'people watch'. French cuisine at its best. Delicious sea food & meats. Reasonably priced wine list. Excellent lunch before our return to UK.

This has to be the worst service we have had in years. The food at Charlotte 1er is good however expensive. The service is just rude and arrogant. The owner struts around ignoring all non-French and frankly only has time for the Monaco set. I have visited this restaurant on at least 15 occasions however, there are better places nearby....
