We choose the 33 euro menu and champagne and were pleasantly surprised. Started off with carpaccio and gazpacho respectively, both intense but silky smooth. For main we had the dorade cooked to perfection. Desert was a three layer chocolate cake, divine, with the capuccino that we ordered separately. Service kind and attentive. Warmly recommended.

We have eaten here many times over the years and have never had a bad experience. The food is always good and beautifully presented. The set menus are excellent value. Service is friendly and professional. The location, though just above the road, is not noisy and there is a lovely view of the marina from the tastefully designed dining room.... More

I was told by friends they had the best bouillabaisse but it took me 3 years to go there and check out. I also checked prices all over cannes and surrounding and usually a basic bouillabaisse is between 55 and 70 euros per pax. When I pass by in the afternoon and saw they had it for 42 Euros and...

Everything you'd expect from a French restaurant except a certain je ne sais quoi. All very professional, the food good to very good, the service efficient, the prices acceptable, the situation OK (traffic under the windows, but good views across the port to the hills of the Esterel National Park) but somehow any sense of joy has been subsumed by...

There is a change of format here which is a real shame. The previous 41.50 euro menu has now been replaced by an expensive a la Carte.This means the excellent wild sea bass (loup de mer) now costs 43.50 per person and you have to be two to order this fish. If you do order a first course and a... More

This is by far my favorite restaurant on the Côte d'Azur. Everything about it is first class. From the warm welcome to the decor, the profession but friendly wait staff to exceptional cuisine. The menu is varied, the food is well prepared and the presentation is lovely. The rack of lamb is flavorful and tender. A fork poked in my... More

The best fois gras I have ever eaten in my life. It was not a pate of foie gras, but two pieces of duck liver fried medium rare in a sweet sauce with fried apples and something else. It was not really "gras" (fat) and this made it even better. For the main course I chose steak with pepper. It... More

Wonderful family run restaurant . Not the cheapest but food and service first class . Probably not for the kids but get someone to look after them while you have an eating experience !
