The worst aioli I ever tasted. It's no wonder it's not a popular restaurant anymore. The first thing that happens is that Fred comes over to the table and cons you into buying bottled water. At the same time he offered us a complimentary aperitif which turned out to be terrible champagne that we ended up paying for. But the... More

On arrival Fred greeted us with some beautiful looking fish...only to find out (after some poorly explained pricing...let's call it 'lost in translation'), that they cost €375 each(!!). Nice, but nothing special and definitely not worth a fraction of what they charged. Starters were great, clearly priced and fantastic flavour...just order lots of them to share snd you will have...

We are been welcomed by the owner and seated. No English menu but the nice girl (waiter) take us through the menu which is outstanding. We are 2 persons and order 3 starters, 2 main courses and 2 desserts. The food is really really good, the wine is fine and the service is super. We will for sure come again... More

This food here was not only delicious, but the presentation was exquisite. We went with a party of 25 during the film festival and had three wonderfully prepared large fish. The flavor was absolutely perfect. The octopus salad was another personal favorite. A favorite for sure!

The lobster starter is lovely. The scallops for main were good, but I have had better. The veg with the ses bream was not a good choice as the veg did not really go with it. The desserts are magnificent, especially the profiteroles which are big enough for two. Wine is more expensive but lovely 65e for a bottle of... More

Owned by local Cannois from father to daughter Maelle both Fred and her will assure a efficient and good service. Fishes rare ones is the speciality. Atmosphere is good. I understand very nice terrace but this was in December Incredible desserts see pics Very good wine list.

I come to Cannes once per year to participate in one of the numerous trade fairs this city hosts. After spending the entire day meeting and greeting customers at the Palais I can't wait to have a proper dinner far away from the kitsch restaurants near the old town. So Fred l'ecailler is my secret gem.

This spot was recommended by one of the concierges at the Hotel Majestic Barriere. Great setting - incredibly nice nice staff - very friendly. The recommendation of the concierge was this restaurant had the very best fresh fish in Cannes. He was right. The sole, tuna, and sea bass was so very fresh. A place to go when in Cannes.
