Tucked away around the corner from the main street at the top of the old town in Cannes you will find the Le Salon des Independants. It is now firmly on our list of restaurants to visit and is a great night out.
There is one fixed price menu of approx. 49€ which includes a welcome glass of champagne, a bottle of wine between two and a plate of charcuterie plus a house terrine with salad and lots of fresh bread. There is then a plate of ravioli with a truffle sauce served with a shot of vodka before the main course...a choice of fish, lamb, ribs etc. served with vegetables and duchesse potatoes (which has a great wack of garlic :)). There is also a choice of desserts including a wonderful panacotta. The food is well presented, tasty and plentiful and every single person in our group were very impressed.
The owners Mario and Andrea are great fun and great singers..and Mario is even a fair Elvis impersonator :) and especially impressive that they are able to sing in at least 4 languages (at least on the nights we were there!). Last November (2013) a large group of us were there celebrating a family christening and with a mix of Irish, French, Scottish and Spanish it was always going to be a great night. The nearby tables soon joined in and we soon had German, more Irish and even a Swiss couple all singing away...it was just a brilliant, unforgettable night.
So good was that night that we went back with other friends a couple of nights later for a repeat performance. We were back in June 2014 and everything was still just as perfect...don't miss this restaurant for a great night and ..join in the singing ! (TIP: Make a reservation to be guaranteed a table particularly at weekends or during festivals).
Looking forward to a return visit in October.
