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.

Le Mesclun

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.

Fouquet’s Cannes

La Palme d'Or

La Tonnelle

Price: Moderate
Cuisine: French

Address: France
Telephone: +33 4 9299 5408.

Rado Plage

Price: Moderate
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, France
Telephone: +33 4 9394 2068.

Le Caveau 30

Price: Moderate
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, France
Telephone: +33 4 9339 0633.

Astoux & Brun

Price: Cheap
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, France
Telephone: +33 4 933 92187.

Le Restaurant Arménien

Price: Cheap
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, France
Telephone: +33 4 9394 0058.


Price: Cheap
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, France
Telephone: +33 6 1386 6737.
