Description: Idéalement situé sur le vieux port de Golfe Juan, le Bistrot du Port vous accueille dans un cadre idyllique et historique autour d’une cuisine simple et provençale. Sa terrasse, qui surplombe la rade où se côtoient bateaux de pêcheurs et yachts luxueux, offre un superbe point de vue.Le panorama qu’on y découvre suffit à expliquer l’amour que Picasso porta à ce lieu où il passa quatre années de sa vie.

“Our favourite restaurant”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Le Bistro du Port is a family-run restaurant situated in Golfe-Juan. It specialises in seafood and serves the most delightful soupe de poisson. Fresh fish is delivered daily and there is always a good selection. The atmosphere is relaxing with excellent, attentive service from friendly staff. In fine weather, we sit outside overlooking the old port and finish our meal with the best coffee in Golfe-Juan.

“Underwhelming”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

We hadn't been for a long time so we were unsure what to expect on a weekend lunch.

We chose the Menu du Jour and all courses were poor. Endives, smoked salmon and raw swordfish looked as if it had been plated by a very new employee. The main course of Haddock on Green Beans, cold and scrap ends of fish. €25 from memory

This is a very popular restaurant in a wonderfully scenic location but Im afraid we just had a bad day.

Service was outstanding but won't be back to try and catch the kitchen on a good day.

Loads of cheap & cheerful restaurants around there with better quality in the better restaurants.

“Everything perfect”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Having been in the music business before retiring in Australia, I spent several years visiting Cannes for the annual music festival, and one of my favourite dishes in the South of France was Soupe de Poisson. Recently I visited the area with friends, and I suggested that we go to the restaurant Nou Nou for dinner, where I used to go every year, so we went there around 19:45. Upon arrival, I was confronted by a rather irate lady who said we were too early and they only open at 20H00. I asked if we could have a drink while waiting and she refused and said we should come back in 15 minutes. As we were hungry we decided to look outside for another option and decided on Le Bistrot du Port down the road. What a find !! They made us feel most welcome and recommended one of their specialities, which was Soupe de Poisson served with all the usual croutons,cheese, garlic and Rouille, but also included three different types of fish on the side to add to the broth. This was one of the best meals any of us had ever had. To add to this, the service and venue were first class. Will be back for certain when I am next in Cannes.

“Brilliant atomosphere and service”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

My wife and I had a wonderful meal here one evening. The food was really good, although I would not say incredible. But the location (we sat outside by the harbour), the staff, and the atmosphere were all incredible. The staff really go out of their way to make you feel special, cracking jokes, and just creating an environment that you want to go back to.

And we will go back for sure.

Bravo!

Reviewed August 1, 2013

If you are staying in Golf Juan you must dine here. It is by far the best restaurant in the area. The location is perfect, the staff are friendly and the food is amazing. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.
