Had Sunday lunch here last week. Didn't book but went early and no problems getting a table. The menu was great - lots of choice and all looked fresh. Everything we ordered was of a very high quality and cooked beautifully. Delicious too. By the time we left the place was full. My only observation was that it was quite... More

My tittle says everything. The restaurant looks like a normal place to have dinner with friends but at the end we were feeling like eating in a fancy restaurant. Basically, like the food they propose, is over rated. They try to act like a fancy restaurant but the place looks cheap. The guys came to clean their bins just beside... More

Just try: Scorpio fish baked with tomatoes and potatoes! This dish is there for the last ten years and it is the most delicious fish dish, even for the meat lovers!

Located on Place L'Etang, Palm Beach area of Cannes, nice garden and good service. They offer two lunch menus (29 and 39E), depending on type of fish you have, but you get a nice entree, main course (only fish) and a dessert. Very good food, not expensive.

I had got various feedbacks from close friends on this restaurant, somewhat contradictory, and I decided to go and have dinner to make my own mind. Overall, this was quite a disappointing experience ... The environment is rather charming (place de l'Etang), with many people playing "Petanque Bowls" in the evening, and it sounded great to have dinner outside on... More

Good service and fresh fish! I can't complain about coming to Fred L'Ecailler at all! Good selection of fresh fish and waiters who will take the time to explain their dishes and how each fish can be cooked. Very satisfied with the food I got and will probably come back again next year.

The worst aioli I ever tasted. It's no wonder it's not a popular restaurant anymore. The first thing that happens is that Fred comes over to the table and cons you into buying bottled water. At the same time he offered us a complimentary aperitif which turned out to be terrible champagne that we ended up paying for. But the... More

On arrival Fred greeted us with some beautiful looking fish...only to find out (after some poorly explained pricing...let's call it 'lost in translation'), that they cost €375 each(!!). Nice, but nothing special and definitely not worth a fraction of what they charged. Starters were great, clearly priced and fantastic flavour...just order lots of them to share snd you will have...
