Cannes is one of the best culinary cities in France with a wide range of international influences, Michelin stars and individual restaurants; you can dine in a new restaurant every night of the week!
Below, we have created a guide to our favourite restaurants to try in Cannes for the very best food, ambiance and service on offer.
Le Park 45, Grand Hotel Cannes
One Michelin star restaurant Le Park 45 is situated on the famous la Croisette and boasts one of the best, sun-drenched terraces in Cannes! With beautiful views out to sea and their gardens, Le Park 45 is the Grand Hotel in Cannes' Michelin started restaurant that serves light and creative culinary delights with Mediterranean style.
Palme d’Or, Grand Hyatt Hotel Martinez, Cannes
Everyone has to experience the most famous restaurant in Cannes at least once in a lifetime. Holding 2 Michelin stars since 1991, the restaurant La Palme d’Or has an international reputation for its passion for food and offers a unique sensory and culinary experience. Enjoy fabulous views overlook the Croisette from the elegant white table-tops surrounded by pictures of movie stars that have visited the Palme d’Or.
A taste of the menu begins with asparagus on a bed of cucumber gazpacho, Dublin Bay prawns with beetroot or sweetbreads with a duck foie gras stuffing. Second course options like risotto with mullet roe are best left for heartier mains like Mediterranean Bass with green pea ravioli.
The legendary chef Noel Mantel began his career at the famous Negresco in Nice before co-running the Louis XV restaurant in Monaco and Residence de la Pinede in St Tropez. In 2002 Noel set up his own restaurant ‘Mantel’ just a few steps away from La Croisette and the Palais des festivals.
Noël Mantel creates sophisticated Mediterranean meals such as an Italian style risotto, perfectly roasted rabbit with thyme or traditional Fried zuchinni flowers, all made with passion and refinement.
Bustling, friendly and simply great food. The Bistrot Gourmand is a classic Provencal bistro with bright French windows, modern art dotted on the walls and well-presented dishes of local favourites with a modern twist. The menu changes several times a week so each dining experience here will be delightfully different! We recommend the likes of the fillet of turbot in a lemon sauce with veg from the nearby Forville market which looks and tastes terrific. As do cod in fig leaves or lamb chops in a mustard sauce.
Take a gentle, picturesque cruise by boat from Cannes to visit this fantastic on the beach of Iles Saint Horant. La Tonnelle offers a unique dining experience of a relaxed and serene atmosphere whilst enjoying the local homemade wines produced by the islands monks. Serving seasonal produce, gourmet salads, fresh fish, grilled meats and other delectable Mediterranean inspired dishes.
