“Great meal in Cannes”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

This restauant was recommended to us by locals and we were not dissapointed. The food, service and atmosphere were superb-very casual. The place was packed with both locals and tourists which is always a good sign. Reservations are available and highly recommended. One of our best meals in France.

“One of the best meals ever eaten in Cannes!”
Reviewed December 26, 2011

Had a meal here on Boxing Day. We arrived late but the place was still busy and buzzy.
We ate from the set menu - a bit more than we would normally pay at 36 euros - but it was worth it! Very limited choice but the food was superb.

Chez Austoux is a fish restaurant so fish is what they serve. Everything is amazingly fresh and supremely tasty. Mouthwateringly good.

To begin with we had a lentil soup with scallops floating in it. Have never before eaten anything like this in our lives and it was just ... wow! The best!

We both had a fish main course. My husband had cod in a mediterranean sauce which tasted wonderful. I had grilled daurade. The accompanying vegetables were delightful.
A perfect and delicious tarte tatin for dessert.

We sat in the covered terrace overlooking the street which was lit by Christmas fairy lights - it was like looking out at wonderland.

I think this is one of those places that is better out of season. But do try it - don't be put off by some of the negative reviews here.

“Loved it - Fresh fresh seafood and lots of fun”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

We're New England coastal fish snobs and are really fussy about the freshness and preparation of our seafood - this place overwhelmed us with the abundance, variety and freshness of the fish. When I asked about the catch of the day (i.e. not on the regular menu which actually had an extensive selection of fish), instead of being told of one or two specials, the waitress ran to bring us a huge platter containing 6 or 7 raw different whole fish and shellfish! ( I don't remember if the restaurant also offers meat and chicken - you should check if you have non-fish eaters with you.) We were really pleased with our meals. Service was prompt. It was warm and we had a rose which was fine - I can't really speak to the wine selection. The restaurant was not loud, but it was lively and happy - maybe boisterous. Diners and wait staff were relaxed and having fun.
We went late at night - about 10:45pm- and although we got a table right away, the restaurant was mostly full. I would recommend getting a reservation if possible.

“very good”
Reviewed March 23, 2011

The restaurant offers a large variety of sea food, the service is very good and nice. The price per personn is not so high considering it is Cannes. The quality of the sea food is very good, fresh and nicely served. Extra arrangements can be made, the waiters offer you different ways so that you try a little of everything on the menu. They recommend you according with the year saison what is best to try at the time.
