Very good french food at good prices. I had lamb and my wife had duck and both were delicious. We really recommend it. It's one or 2 blocks away from Promenade de la Croisette but still in the very nice quiet street.

This is a family run restaurant and they take great pride in their food. We were there for the Cannes Film Festival and were trying to find a restaurant that was not tacky and touristy. This place is great, it is always full after a...More
