“Food and Service - excellent.”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

From the perfectly cooked salmon, calamari, prawns and ribs to the excellent and friendly service we couldn't recommend this restaurant enough. We think this is the first meal where everyone loved their food, the children got to enter a colouring in competition (to be drawn in April 2012) and hubby got to practice his emerging French on very patient and delightful staff. We loved it and will be back again - very soon.

“Great”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

have the Surf and Turf! You won't be disappointed! How on earth the prawns can be so consistently good amazes me...we have been back to this South African franchise again and again. Outdoor and indoor seating, very casual, often a lot of children. Ignore the plastic tablecloths, you are there for the prawns!!!Service great, and friendly.

“A Happy Surprise”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

We happened upon Jimmy's after a day at the beach and lunch in Cannes - in other words we wanted something easy and simple; this restaurant was just right. While we're not talking foodie-type food, we are talking decent, tasty and fun. The outdoor dining area is casual and perfect on a warm summer eve. The shrimp are pretty good, offered by size( "king" "queen" are the way to go) with 3 side sauces. There are many other choices on the menu, but the shrimp make the experience. Service, although friendly is not too good, but thankfully the menu is clear so not very much is required from the waitstaff. The prices are not cheap, but for what is offered. In short, if you're looking for an alternative to a classy-classic chic French eatery that's a lot' more than just adequate, come to Jimmy's Killer Prawns.

“What a disappointment”
Reviewed July 31, 2011

After all the hype, it was just seafood with rubbish sauces and poor service without the charm of a McDonalds

“Big succulent and tasty prawns”
Reviewed January 5, 2011

We eat there quite often when in France, mostly in the summer when we can sit outside in the sun, and have always found that, whilst it's not cheap, it's excellent value for money as the quality is high and the quantity of food is really up to South African standards, huge portions!

I am not a great lover of prawns but whenever I go there I enjoy the prawns, big, succulent, and tasty. The salads are excellent, there's a good choice of deserts, my favourite is the ice cream and chocolate crepe. The ribs are excellent too and we never leave disappointed after a meal at JKP.
