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

Usually consistently very good over the last 20 years, but times change and on this visit the food was average. I took a Nicoise Salad. Perhaps an off day, but disappointing this time. On a plus note, the location is great and service good. Plage L'Ondine deserves another chance on my next visit.

Without much planing we decided to have a light lunch on the beach in Cannes. We expected average food and inflated prices for the privilege of that pleasure. Finally L'Ondine presently surprised us with friendly and efficient service, nice food and not too expensive. Seating is very comfortable too. I would go back

Very special place. The locals are always among customers. Good choice of fish and meat. My favorite is cassolette d’omar. Everything is great, fresh and beautifully decorated.
