“Elegance at it's best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

Lobster & Champagne Lunch.
Beautiful restaurant, stunning view, outstandingly attentive service.
I do not normally like hotel food but this was excellent; each course was absolutely superb, lots of fresh tasty vegetables. The main course was on a sea of delicious spinach.
The desert was one of the best I have ever had, almost as good as Regis Marcon; so tasty I wanted another.
Washed down by 2 glasses of lovely chilled Champagne!
Well done.
The only issue was the lobster, but this is why I don't normally like Hotel food

“Sunday Brunch Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

We decided with two good friends to start the New Year in style with a Sunday brunch at the Carlton in Cannes. Our expectations were high, as the fixed price was €70 per head, a good deal more than we would normally pay for a meal at midday. However we were not disappointed. First I should point out that the €70 included wine (nominally half a bottle of wine per person but this was generously interpreted by our waiter) and mineral water and coffee. In the event, it also included a coupe de champagne - 'offered by the waiter' - and I must add that we were extremely impressed by the choice of both of the wines included in the price and by the champagne. The buffet was exceptional - consisting of an extensive range of delicious, imaginative, often intricately prepared delights - from oysters, and prawns, and a wide selection of salmon- and seafood-based canapés, though foie gras and cold meats, prepared in the most appealing and imaginative ways, unusual savoury-and-sweet combinations, and only the freshest, the crispest, the most tender and delicious salad ingredients, and, as if all that was not enough, a super selection of hot dishes, and a range of perfectly delicious desserts that would more than satisfy any dessert gourmet. The beauty of the installation - for it was also a feast for the eyes - was maintained by discrete hands quietly and efficiently replacing items as they disappeared, so that those arriving as we left appeared to have the identical offer to the one which met us on our arrival.
I have been quite critical in recent months of a number of establishments charging top prices but delivering less than the expected level of quality and service. But I have nothing but words of praise for the Carlton for what we concluded was truly outstanding value for money.

“A colonial style Hotel with the 5 star trappings.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

We shared drinks and Hors d oevres in the Carlton whilst visiting Cannes.
The facade and interior are expressive and quietly understated. The staff although professional seemed distracted and less than willing to approach...judging from the menu's, we may not have been 'movie star enough'.
That aside the food and drinks were fine and priced as one might expect for a 5 star in Cannes.
Will not readily go back, as there are many other cafes, restaurants etc that are equal to if not better than the Carlton.
