Restaurants in Cannes

The art of good eating is alive and well in Cannes with more than 300 restaurants at the last count. These range from Michelin-star eateries to intimate, family-run cafés. The prices are what you’d expect to pay on the Côte d’Azur and no less.

The Cannes restaurants below are grouped into three pricing categories:
Expensive (over €120)
Moderate (€60 to €120)
Cheap (up to €60)

These Cannes restaurant prices are based on the average price of a three-course meal and half a bottle of house wine or equivalent.


Fouquet’s Cannes

Cuisine: French

Renowned chef Pierre Gagnaire has brought his famed fusion cuisine touch to the Riviera, revising the gourmet menu at this sumptuous Parisian-style brasserie in the process. The restaurant is in the opulent Hôtel Majestic Barrière, and the sunny terrace is a delightful place to while away an afternoon.

Address: , 10 boulevard de la Croisette, Cannes,
Telephone: +33 4 9298 7705.

La Palme d'Or

Cuisine: French

With its great central location on La Croisette, extremely stylish contemporary art deco interior and utterly delicious food, La Palme d'Or in the Hôtel Martinez represents the best Cannes has to offer. The cuisine is modern Mediterranean, with an equal focus on seafood and meat, including lamb cooked for 72 hours.

Address: 73 boulevard de la Croisette, Hôtel Martinez, Cannes,
Telephone: +33 4 9298 7414.

Le Mesclun

Cuisine: French

This elegant eatery has been hailed as one of the best restaurants in Cannes thanks to the creative southern Mediterranean cuisine being rustled up in its kitchen. The family-run restaurant serves gourmet food in warm and unpretentious surroundings, which can be a breath of fresh air in this town.

Address: , 16 rue Saint-Antoine, Cannes,
Telephone: +33 4 9399 4519.


La Tonnelle

Cuisine: French

Situated on Ile St-Honorat, you can only get to La Tonnelle by boat. The waterfront restaurant shares the island with the monks of the Abbaye de Lérins, who just so happen to produce a range of fine homemade wines, which you can drink while taking in the sea views.

Address: , , ,
Telephone: +33 4 9299 5408.

Le Caveau 30

Cuisine: French

Located near the Vieux Port, Le Caveau has the feel and elegant style of a 1930s restaurant and specialises in seafood and seasonal, regional produce. The food and the wine list are excellent, and the restaurant is worth seeking out for its bouillabaisse even if it gets crowded in high season.

Address: , 45 rue Félix Faure, Cannes,
Telephone: +33 4 9339 0633.

Rado Plage

Cuisine: French and seafood

This venerable beach bar is one of the oldest in Cannes – and one of the friendliest and least pretentious. Savour fresh seafood and Provençale cuisine within just a few metres of the lapping waters of the Mediterranean. The sea is also handy if you fancy a post-prandial dip.

Address: , La Plage du Rado, La Croisette, Cannes,
Telephone: +33 4 9394 2068.


Astoux & Brun

Cuisine: Seafood

This Cannes institution has been serving generous platters of fruits de mer (seafood) and fish to appreciative Cannois since 1953. There's a lively atmosphere in the simple interior, and things positively buzz on the large terrace. Let the grilled sea bass with fennel or smoked salmon spaghetti wow you.

Address: , 27 rue Félix Faure, Cannes,
Telephone: +33 4 933 92187.

Le Restaurant Arménien

Cuisine: Armenian

You'll find a warm atmosphere here – as well as tasty, genuine Armenian food that also blends dishes from some of its eastern neighbours. It's a popular alternative to the Riviera's predominantly Mediterranean cuisine. The kebabs, pilafs, dolmas (stuffed vine leaves) and kechkeg (beef and bulgur wheat) are all very good.

Address: , 82 boulevard de la Croisette, Cannes,
Telephone: +33 4 9394 0058.


Cuisine: Burgers and French

If you're a gourmet burger aficionado, check out this intimate little place on a narrow street in Le Suquet. You can either go for the classic version, or one of the more exotic options using foie gras, but all will leave you stuffed. Lighter bites include plates of charcuterie and cheeses.

Address: , 24 rue du Suquet, Cannes,
Telephone: +33 6 1386 6737.

Featured Hotels


InterContinental Carlton Cannes

Old-world charm and modern convenience combine to great effect at the Carlton. The hotel has 343 rooms, including 39 suites, and there are two restaurants, two bars and a health club on the premises. The grande dame of La Croisette overlooks the Mediterranean and has its own private beach.

Hôtel Alnea

A basic, comfortable hotel located only a minute's walk from the Palais des Festivals and a short stroll from the Croisette beaches. The rooms are air-conditioned and soundproofed and come with flatscreen TVs and free Wi-Fi. It's a good cheap option with great service and some colourful paint schemes.

Hôtel Le Cavendish

Formerly the home of Lord Cavendish, the British aristocrat who discovered hydrogen, this belle époque building is a charming hotel just north of the railway station. All 34 rooms are serenely elegant, but try to get one in the rotunda. And make time for the free aperitifs every evening.

Hotel Novotel Suites Cannes Centre

The Novotel offers good-value rack rates and some of the best online specials in Cannes. This swish, modern, all-suite hotel is only a 10-minute walk from the railway station but still delivers spacious rooms that all have microwaves and kettles, as well as large working spaces and flatscreen TVs.

Hôtel Barrière Le Majestic

This belle époque palatial hotel along La Croisette fuses classic elegance with modern refinements. It has 349 sumptuous rooms, three Venetian-style lounges, five restaurants, two bars and a swimming pool. It has also hijacked part of the main beach, which means guests can enjoy bathing in private.

Hotel Colette

This 3-star stay is one of the most stylish hotels in Cannes. Its simple yet striking white colour scheme acts as a canvas for the hotel's lively blend of modern furniture, contemporary art and the odd antique. Its location opposite the railway station is convenient, albeit not the prettiest.
