If you're a budget-conscious diner, forget it. This place charges all the money and it's worth it.

I've been here a couple of times in the past and always look forward to returning. Their Michelin Star is well deserved. I think that their bouillabaisse is as good as it gets. It is served in two courses and done old-school with croutons, garlic cloves, and rouille. If you don't want to look like a fish out of water (no pun intended), you rub the croutons with the garlic so that it imparts the essence of garlic without the harsh bite of raw garlic. Spoon some rouille on top of the garlicky crouton then float it on the broth!

The broth is so flavorful and fresh with absolutely no 'fishyness' whatsoever. The filets of fish are perfectly cooked and flavorful as only fish cooked whole on the bone can be.

The amazing food is only rivaled by the breathtaking views of the Baie des Anges.

I love and highly recommend Bacon. It is well worth the drive and a must for anyone who loves bouillabaisse.

We were really looking forward to our Friday evening visit this past weekend in Antibes. The setting is, of course, stunning. Unfortunately we found the staff EXTREMELY pretentious and rude. It is important to note that the next night we dined at Hotel d'Cap and were extremely IMPRESSED by the very pleasant staff - so it is not that we had unfair expectations or were simply experiencing a 'finer dining' experience. Here are some facts about our visit:
- The main waiter was very stressed by our questions, and was simply unable to explain to us some simple questions we had about the menu
- Unbelievably, this finest of 'fish' restaurants was out of all but one variety of fish the night of our visit
- We never saw the staff smile, or laugh, except to laugh at a poor colleague who dropped a plate in the kitchen entrance...

We will not go back...

Dear Sir,

We are extremly sorry, there is no excuses for the staff not to smile even if they all had a long ten tiring days due to the Lion's club meeting hapening in cannes, with many groups of people attending our restaurant. Saying that, I really hope that you will change your mind and give us another chance. None of your comment is about the quality of the food, I believe that at least we reached your expectations. The variety of fish depend of the local fishermen and on busy days the diversity can be reduced as we refuse to buy fish outside the Alpes Maritimes.

Best regards
La direction

This place WAS, hands down, the best fish restaurant I have ever been. What happened? An annual must-do will now be relegated to the past. I guess I'm the last to know, because we had dinner during the film festival and the place was half-empty. The "delice de loup" were good but lacked enthusiasm, the fish was not presented and the portions were anorexic. And the traditional Mille-feuille as well as other desserts were on the menu but not available. Did the pastry chef quit? A disappointment.

The food in this restaurant is really excellent. They really know how to use herbs and prepare fish. Excellent deserts and a very well chosen wine list. This restaurant is quite expensive but then one knows that when one checks the menu. The service is excellent as well. I imagine they become busy at certain times and days so the service might be variable. We went for lunch and had a really nice time.

Another favourite of ours. This restaurant is elegant and stylish with all the glamour of the Côte d'Azur. Great view across the bay towards Antibes old town and the yachts dotting the horizon in the summer months.
The food is fish oriented and quite superb. The bouillabaisse- a house speciality - is a feast in itself and the bibs provided to avoid splashing your shirt - a nice touch and essential! The rougets (red mullet) is another favourite. We also love the candied orange peel served with coffee!
Far from a cheap option this restaurant transports you to the glamour of Antibes and the food won't disappoint. A memorable experience.
