“Good all rounder”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Nice food, nice location, good ambiance. Pleasant staff, no rushing. Fair price. I'm sure you can get better food else where, or a better view, however across the board, this one does everything very well. I regularly return, as the menu is quite varied

“Great Cannes local.”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Everytime we are in Cannes we go to Up side down Basserie. It is in a prime location in front of the enterance to the port and around the corner from all the shops. It has a smoking and non smoking section and if you hate smokers make sure you are in the non smoking section as the tables are very very close together and the French do still like to smoke. The service is good and they don't mind if you only can say hello, please and thank you in french. The menus are also in english. I had the beef tartar and it wonderful, my husband have the xxl burger but this was over cooked ( we asked for med/rare) and it was as dry as old boots. A great shame as we have always had wonderful food from here.
We will go back again but we will not do the burger again with it's cheap yellow "plastic cheese" we will stick to the fish and the meat.

“a little too much salt.”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

ordered the foie gras for dinner as lunch was late. the bread that came with this was limp. too soft and sweet. it went better with the baguette. also didn't like the generous topping of sea salt which I scraped away. the side salad that came with it was nice.

the wok canard is nice. but it was nicer before. i have been eating this every year for seven years when i come to cannes for the FIF. here is an idea... the duck meat is too thick to enjoy. serve it half it's thickness with the same quantity and it will be easier on the diner's jaw.

this restaurant is now smoke free which is fantastic!

service is good but can be improved with english speaking staff.

off course we will come back to eat at l'UP again. you're too good to avoid :p

“during festival quick business lunch, ok”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

stayed mid may during cannes film festival, when the place is overcrowded, yet i appreciated the service was ok and fast and despite the french standards, where you can really be mistreated by rough waiters ours were very gentle, we had a business lunch with mostly salads, i'd suggest the hamburger: it is really excellent. Prize is not cheap, but entries are big and i hardy finished my salad. I'd expected less while overall it was more than ok, a place i'll keep in mind when returning next year.

“A Fun Night Out with Great Food”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

We stopped here for dinner, without a reservation, and despite the packed house quickly got a table. Unfortunately, I cannot remember what we ordered but I do remember it was a lot of food and all delicious. They even had a jazz singer and piano accompanist that evening which added to the great atmosphere. Good service except the waiter and the chef started drinking at the end of the evening so it wasn't quite as attentive but that only added to the fun. Lots of locals so I knew we were at the right place!
