In the summer the place is very crowded, and never attracted me to stop by. End of October, I has enough time to hang around and decide to visit for a dinner. We were welcomed by a nice lady, very friendly and propose mulitple seating options. Each Friday, they serve Bouillabaisse. This was our choice: very rich, and fresh, lot... More

From the outside, La Palmea doesn't look like much, but don't let that fool you. This is by far the best restaurant dinner I've had in a long time. The three course €49,50 menu offers very good value. The starter, quale with a side of fruits, provided a hearty start for what was to come. Roasted just right. The main... More

We choose the 33 euro menu and champagne and were pleasantly surprised. Started off with carpaccio and gazpacho respectively, both intense but silky smooth. For main we had the dorade cooked to perfection. Desert was a three layer chocolate cake, divine, with the capuccino that we ordered separately. Service kind and attentive. Warmly recommended.

We have eaten here many times over the years and have never had a bad experience. The food is always good and beautifully presented. The set menus are excellent value. Service is friendly and professional. The location, though just above the road, is not noisy and there is a lovely view of the marina from the tastefully designed dining room.... More

I was told by friends they had the best bouillabaisse but it took me 3 years to go there and check out. I also checked prices all over cannes and surrounding and usually a basic bouillabaisse is between 55 and 70 euros per pax. When I pass by in the afternoon and saw they had it for 42 Euros and...

Everything you'd expect from a French restaurant except a certain je ne sais quoi. All very professional, the food good to very good, the service efficient, the prices acceptable, the situation OK (traffic under the windows, but good views across the port to the hills of the Esterel National Park) but somehow any sense of joy has been subsumed by...

There is a change of format here which is a real shame. The previous 41.50 euro menu has now been replaced by an expensive a la Carte.This means the excellent wild sea bass (loup de mer) now costs 43.50 per person and you have to be two to order this fish. If you do order a first course and a... More
