“Excellent food, bad attitude staff.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

Food excellent. Definite buzz. Came as a walk in.Was greeted by a Algerian/Arabic looking girl with a beauty spot who was rude to us when we arrived, In particular to my mother!! I got very angry and a manager came over to try calm things and seated us promptly. This put a dampener on things but thankfully the food was excellent even by Cannes standards. Expensive as expected.

“Felix is the Cat's whiskers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

I have been going to Felix for over 40 years, originally when old man Felix was running it, then his son and my parents loved it too. You can count on great food and never know which celebrity is there too.

“Classy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

Reserved a table the morning of our dinner, and lucky we did. It filled up quickly soon after we arrived. The manageress Nathaly runs a tight ship; staff are professional and attentive. Decor is classy. A la carte menu pricey, but the fixed menu provided excellent choices for €55. All our dishes were superbly prepared on good quality crockery. We wanted to return a few days later, but alas they had closed for their annual vacation. Surprised and sad to see some bad reviews here...we can only highly recommend Felix from our experience and hope that other diners enjoy it too.

“Prime La Croisette Location, Cannes, France”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

Great location on La Croisette, great outside eating area, and as expected tasteful furniture and fittings. the food didn't disappoint, well presented and and the taste reflected the visual high standards, I would recommend this restaurant to anybody visiting Cannes, and it's worth spending the extra money for the quality of food, and the occasion, wine, as expected was expensive, but there are decent bottles under €50.

“Service with a snarl,”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

My wife and I were staying at the Martinez and having enjoyed Felix many times in the eighties and nineties we asked the concierge to book us a table for dinner. This he did while we were at the desk.

When we arrived at the restaurant a young and insolent girl denied that we had any reservation. We insisted that we had whereupon she called over another equally off hand young lady and they ostentatiously looked through their book and again, despite me pointing out that I was present when the reservation was made, denied any such reservation had been made.

Eventually they decided to let us enter (by now we should really have walked out) and seated us. I looked around. The place was nearly empty and I counted seven occupied tables (two more were occupied before we left). Any professionally run restaurant would have stated that they had made a mistake whether they believed it or not and would have been only too pleased to have another couple dine at this sparsely attended restaurant.

The service was equally amateurish and impersonal and the food not bad but, as with most establishments on the Croisette, very overpriced.

Avoid!
