I revisited this restaurant after several years. It retains its charm and excellent cuisine. The proprietor and his staff are attentive and as the name would suggest it has an excellent an extensive wine stock. I shall go back when next in Cannes. It is equally goo for couplesand groups visiting on business or on vacation

cannes film festival, may 2013. we stumbled upon this restaurant as we could not get a table at another restaurant, la cave, nearby.

we got a table very quickly even though the place was packed with diners.

we were initially served by the owner. all went well as he spoke good english.

the filet mignon steaks arrived and they were not as tender as the owner had promised.

my order of the lamb shank was nice but the meat was dry and i suspect it to be over-cooked and became caramelized. - is this how it is supposed to be done? i suspect not as i saw 2 different diners having what i had and their lamb shank didn't look as dark or caramelized as my serving. i am sharing a picture of my serving of the lamb shank.

the lamb shank's very dark gravy went well with the baguette provided.

the wine, also seen in the picture was average.

after our main course. we tried to order dessert but the lady serving us did not speak any english and did not and could not answer our questions about the desserts. she did not attempt to get help from anyone else from the restaurant and kept gaving us an upset look and she was quite loud. it is not our fault you cannot understand us/ our English.

an unlikely re-visit.

Ok, I was in a quandary about putting up a review for this place. I've eaten here six times over the last four years, and I said to myself: 'should I keep this a secret so as not to spoil it'??

Not only is the wine selection - by the glass - one of the best in Cannes, but the quality of the food has been fantastic each time I've visited. Whether it be Toulouse sausage, lamb shank or fish, it is simply top notch.

There's a little wine bar at the front where one can wait for a table to become available, or you can reserve in advance. Although a short walk from the town centre, (and thus off the tourist routes), it is well worth the trip.

My wife has French which makes it easy to come here, as they only have 'broken' English. Not that I'm complaining - the fewer English speaking-people that know about this the better!

But I have one gripe...I wish they'd finish their ceiling using the lids of wine boxes. Currently, it's a bit of a mess, but it would be fantastic if it were completed.

the atmosphere of the restaurant is warm and cozy. You first walk through the bar and then down a hallway filled with wine bottles. The tables are in the back. They aren't packed close together so you can talk and relax without bothering your neighbors. Food was fanstastic and the wine as well.
