Our hotel highly recommended this restaurant and my family and I went there with high hopes but were unfortunately sorely disappointed.Service was so horrible we didn't even get to ordering any food!

We should have realized something was off when I was making reservations and the waitress didn't seem terribly interested. This disinterest quickly transformed into impatience and finally pure rudeness as she was taking our orders (if you could even call it that!)

We are french illiterate and even though the main menu had some english translations, the specials menu did not. We merely requested for her to tell us what was on the menu but that seemed to sent her into a huff. Maybe she was annoyed that we took more time than the average customer to choose what we wanted. Maybe she couldn't understand why we thought the lunch time menu was still available (we don't read french!). Anyway we decided not to stick around since she obviously didn't want our business!

Fortunately, we found another restaurant nearby which not only had good food but also waiting staff who understood that what customer service is all about!

Avoid this restaurant at all costs if you don't want your day in Cannes to be spoiled!

We've eaten here five times now--it's always been a delight. The chef manages to add an intriguing surprise--yesterday it was crispy tomato skins sprinkled on the homemade ravioli. It's never pretentious and always fairly priced.

Can't wait to return!

The waiter was incredibly impolite and asked us to move to another table for no reason. After ages he managed to bring us the menus.
All in all, the food is basic and ordinary but the service has a strong bitter taste.
To avoid.

The first time we went, we didn't booked and there were no table even we said we'd wait.

We finally booked and went again. The food is OK, but the ratatouille in the main course was very salty. My salad with fried Coulommier was good. The tiramisu was awful! I guess sometimes it depends on your order. Some dishes are better than others.

There are 19€ and 21€ 3 courses menu, but you have to pay 2€ extra for certain desert. The value is very good. However, I would rather go to Le Pistou, also in Cannes, with a 25€ set menu. A little bit more than Margaux, but much better food.

The ratings of these restaurants can only be a bit of hit or miss. How could Margaux be rated higher than Le Pistou??? So, when you choose restaurants, don't just go for the higher rating ones. You could miss out on the really good ones!
