“Better than other places in the Suquet area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The Suquet restaurants are typically tourists trap: sophisticated places that charge you more than they should for very small portions and average-low quality food. During a nice walk in the area, we chose this restaurant as the owner was just outside the door and he nicely explained us the menu in our language. We saw him briefly doing the same for other people in several languages and in a very friendly and polite way. So we headed for the proposed menu: starters, main course and dessert were all ok, not super. The portions are satisfying and the food is nicely disposed on plates. The service is a little bit slow but always nice and accurate. I will suggest this place because there is no other very good option in the area and a dinner in the Suquet is a must when you are in Cannes.

“Great sales chat, average delivery”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

After three nights in Cannes we were open to taking a chance and the guy outside had a great patter so in we went. For the same money we had much better experiences elsewhere, not so much becuase of the food quality, which was not that bad, but the atmosphere and attitude of the waiting staff lacked care. Starters: foie gras maison, fine; casoulet de st jacques, very tasty. Mains; boeuf au poivre vert, good, trio of mixed meats, average to poor. wines, not too expensive: good rose and crozes hermitage. However, we did feel unattended and on something of a gravy trian, no pun intended. There are better places; places that make you feel more welcome.

“A must to go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Been there with my husband and the colleague in January, 29th 2013. The most delicious bouillabaisse I ever had in Cannes during MIDEM for over 10 years! The meal was exquisite in taste and presentation. Magnificent host and sommelier. Had a great fun and enjoyed our dinner. Were not only tolerant to Calvados which gave us a stroke in head and purse ))))))

“REALLY AVERAGE!! DISAPPOINTED!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

This place always looks very popular!!
However, maybe the chef had a night off
But our food was very, very average
Foie gras cooked nicely, but it's accompanying fig sauce was made from the juice and figs from a tin, just thickened with cornflour. No other seasoning, stock, fruit or alcohol
(None of that lovely rich, reduced, flavoursome sauce. That really makes this dish!!)

Meat platter, was more quantity than quality
Virtually inedible, under-cooked pastry, with the apple pie desert

Unfortunately Cannes has far too many restaurants of this quality

“unpretentious, delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Me and my wife went without many expectations. Service with only 3 people working. Friendly but efficient. Food very, very good. We ate the chevre chaud (hor goat cheese salad). Dar: carreau d'agneau, note 7, and steak au cheese roquefort, note 10. It's worth. Very authentic.
