Central Cannes restaurants can be a bit trendy and sometimes not live up to the hype around them. A few kms down the coast is La Palmea, which is unashamedly traditional, yet upscale. I've not eaten better seafood in France. The cassolette is unmissable - a rich bisque, topped with the lightest millefeuille pastry - as is the whole seabass baked in a salt crust.

The wine list and service are equally impeccable. It's also a great place to escape the more hedonistic element of Cannes: peaceful, beautifully located near the sea, and far more relaxed.

I couldn't recommend it more highly, it's well worth the journey from Cannes, and I'll be back again and again

Food and service this good would cost twice the price in London. My family have been frequenting this restaurant for many years - never had a bad experience. Don't be put of by the conservatory-like exterior - it is better from the inside looking out! This is very good value for what you eat.

We have been coming to La Palmea now for 4 years and still think this is the best restaurant in the area by far.
High quality French cooking, beautifully presented and very reasonably priced for such quality.
Their starters are the most creative and stand out above other venues.
Friendly and very efficient service without being in your face.
Try the lobster top hat starter, it is their best.
Sauces are special.
The menu has changed very little so you know what's on bar a couple of daily specials.
A true gem.
