“Average food, terrible service”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

We ate here on a Friday night, so it was fairly busy. Even so, the service was dire, not long after we sat down a French couple next to us were finishing and wanted to pay the bill. I understood enough of what they were saying - "its as if they don't want paying" he said. This summed up their service, not bothered at all.

The food from the set menu was good, portions were well sized but nothing to get too excited about.

“Great Snobby and arrogant location”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Sat for a quick lunch, was moved because the half of it was going to be prepared with cutlery. Then came the waiter who didn't want to speak and was really thinking: "Bloody tourists". We didn't have napkins, serviettes, spices as salt and pepper... Imagine. And we are not given any. After this we ate and then we asked for check. Then came another waiter looking alike Louis de Funès who was really gentle with some obviously wealthy customers. This guy amazed us. He didn't even give us a look or a whisper. He gave us the check, he came to take the money speechless again and he left the stage with his professional manner. Just to mention that the restaurant was almost empty with just 2-3 tables.
I would like to suggest to the owner to open a new chain from the Type of Mimic bars where customers and staff will have absolute pleasure and understanding :) Cheers

P.S. I would like to say that used to work and set up businesses like that and know it to the bones but this was pity and really amazing hospitality.

“Great Service and good value for Cannes”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Prices are quite high in Cannes and we were delighted when we found Chez Freddy. Superb value "Dinner of the Day" Three large courses and a good selection, many other restaurants only have a small choice. Superb service and very friendly, even had a free round of liqueurs at the end. Very enjoyable night. Don't waste time looking at all the other restaurants, go straight to "Chez Freddy"

“great service and atmosphere”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Considering you are in Cannes, this is great value for the service and size of portions, We visited in June 2013. The staff were friendly and efficient and we felt very welcome. Red and rose house wines were both very nice.. Choose the set menu for 23euros for 3 courses - there was plenty of choice on this menu and the starters were so big we struggled to eat the mains and desserts (try the plate of prawns as a starter - very good).

“Food like home”
Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

Good value, great food, good service. We had to much of the opulance on the Sirquet so we wanted a good meal with beer and wine and conversation with staff. Ticks all the boxes.
