“Maybe the best beach restaurant anywhere.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

A real beach restaurant. You sit a few meters away from the sand and the deck chairs. As the beach is quite full with these, you only catch glimpses of the beautiful blue water. But it's a very nice location. The style is as you might expect it, casual. It's only open for lunch on most days and you get people eating there in their bathing suits of course. The food, ingredients, preparation and presentation is of a way higher level than what you would associate with such an establishment. Excellent marinated fish and lobsters for instance. I had real 'fraises des bois' for dessert. I think they are called wild berries or wild strawberries in English. It's an ingredient you don't get in that many places. All in all, a great place for a relaxed lunch in spring or summer.

“Good service, small portions”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

We arrived at lunchtime at the beginning of the Cannes festival amidst a flurry of self-important badge-wearers making for a highly amusing people-watching lunch. Our waiter was extremely efficient, the food was good but expensive, a chicken wing + fries for the children was 18€! My salted cod was copious and tasty @ 23€ - you pay for the atmosphere and the location.

“TRADITIONAL NEW YEAR'S LUNCH , JAN 1st2012”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2012

it's our preferred place to be for the kick off of the new year! sunshine, open air, the sea and very professional service demonstrating the enjoyment of meeting with you and not just treating you as another client!
the kitchen is standard with fresh and good quality ingredients. grilled sea-bass is the dish to take. you like it "creamy" : take the "fish triology"(2 diff fishes plus half lobster in a fine wine-sauce) or 3 half lobsters with the same sauce. their "foie gras" is the best on the whole croisette you should not miss it out.
the decor of the restaurant is very simple and not fancy at all - prices are in line with the other beach restaurants. locals are coming to l'ondine because of the quality of food and the service, however the owner should consider one day to invest in refurbishment of the place.
