We have been eating at ondine for over 30 years It has been by far the best beech restaurant over the years with consistantly good food and service. Sadly there has been a makeover, most of the old waiters have gone and prices have risen sharply. The final straw as far i was concerned was my wife and i were... More

We wanted to rent a beach chair/umbrella for the day & got rather frustrated with all the place that said that they had no room. Finally at L'Ondine we were got a chair & umbrella; 20 euro each for the chair & 6 euro more for a towel. I thought this was a bit pricey, but we wanted to go... More

Four of us went last Friday to watch a stage of the annual fireworks competition. The restaurant is not normally open in evening but they do a special opening for the Fireworks with a fixed price menu at Euro 75 each. This includes a glass of Ruinart champagne. Service excellent and we ate crab salad to start and two had... More

Great location, good food, laid back atmosphere and its own beach makes this one of our favourite restaurants in Cannes.

Great location! Sitting in a lovely lounge chair in the south of france Whilst being served wonderful food and rosé. Not much to complain about here. The servers are adorable and very French. Meaning, they're in no rush. Expect to pay for the lounge chairs and towels but well worth the from row view.

This is one of the finest places on the Croisette. We have been dining here for well over a decade and the food has been consistent throughout across several chefs. Service is attentive and the scenery, spectacular. It is not an inexpensive experience, but one that is well worth at least one afternoon during a stay in Cannes.

Many beach restaurants in Cannes have switched to lounge music, beige umbrellas, and are actually hard to tell from each other. The real experience is L'Ondine. Food is great (I always have an Americano for apéritif and the homard américain for mains), service is personable and attentive, and prices are high enough to give it some sense of being "entre...

The service is excellent, the food of very high quality ingredients, not cheap, but you get what you paid for in terms of atmosphere and service. The steak, the lobster trio, the lobster salad as well as the deserts were all excellent. Highly recommended !

Love coming here to have one of their wonderful salad creations. They certainly have exquisite salad compositions. I always love the grilled quail salad that has so many different vegetables and a slice of foie gras in addition to the caille. My husband loves the langustino and mango salad. And dont miss on the fries. They are just super. They... More

L'Ondine enjoyed a reputation in Cannes for being the only restaurant with a beach, whereas the others were just beaches serving food. Well, after many years at the top, l'Ondine is still a wonderful place with upscale food, each portion is large enough to doggy bag a whole family for a week, which is rare nowadays. Food is delicious although... More
