The first private beach as you walk away from the Majestic. This is a family run beach. Breakfast is lovely. See below for a longer review.

Breakfast is very good, coffee, hot chocolate, croissant, tartine, freshly squeezed orange juice, fruit salad and they would probably rustle you up some eggs if you wanted. Go for an early morning swim and round it off with breakfast.

Voilier [P]

The only thing that is special about the Voilier is that you are having breakfast on the Croisette and that is fun. But the breakfast is nothing special and we have found the service to be off hand at best. We have only eaten breakfast here.

The first private beach as you walk away from the Majestic. This is a family run beach. Breakfast is lovely (see above). The service is friendly and the food reasonable though not that varied if you are planning on spending everyday here but for us it ticks all the boxes. This restaurant is open almost the whole year round.

A delightful, friendly Chinese restaurant just five minutes from the apartment. Le Jardin de Bambou shines out as being the best Far Eastern restaurant in the area.

When combined with a day on the Majestic's private beach, this restaurant is a real treat. The description on the Majestic web site sounds like hyperbole. We have not tried it since the change. We will one day but we love Plage Goeland, Z Plage and Miramar Plage!!

We had a nice lunch here in August in this fairly upscale beach restaurant. Service was a tad slow and slow to warm but got better as the meal went by. A fantastic menu with good choices for vegetarian and vegans.

We ate here for the first time in August 2017 and the food and service are truly superb. Being vegetarian the Park 45 is a gem on the Cote d'Azur in that it offers a lovely vegetarian menu at €55.00. Highly recommended.

A large pizza and pasta restaurant at the beginning of the old town. I think I first ate at this restaurant in 1983 and I have never been disappointed. Amazingly you can still get a pizza and a beer for €15. It does exactly what it says on the tin. It is not fine dining and does not have pretensions to be but the food is good and the service is quick and excellent. Great, pasta, pizza and risotto. The restaurant is great value, extremely friendly and really buzzy.

We had a great lunch here in July and would go back. Service is excellent and the food fantastic but it is part of the Martinez and is therefore priced accordingly! We would go back.
TripAdvisor Reviews

Of course, there is the Palm d'Or in The Martinez with two Michelin stars. We have not yet eaten there, and I am not sure we will! The menu looks pretentious. To quote the Michelin online guide "In the sumptuous Art Deco setting of the Hotel Martinez, diners look down on La Croisette from a gastronomic peak. The chef creates spectacular cuisine that is sunny and creative, justly deserving of a Palme d'Or!"

Restaurants - Outside of Cannes

The train line along the Cote d'Azur makes almost all the towns of the South of France very easily accessible. Monaco is about an hour and 15 minutes by train but the scenary is so lovely that it goes very quickly.

L'Aiguille [N]
Cuisine: French Modern
Promenade Andre Pradayrol, Plage de l'Aiguille, 06590, Theoule-sur-Mer

If you planning a little outing a way from Cannes this is a lovely little beach and restaurant, which we visited for the first time in August 2017. Highly recommended but booking essential. We had hired a scooter but Theoule can be reached by train in less than 15 minutes.

If you do make it to Monaco during your stay this is the restaurant we would recommend.

This restaurant is in a lovely setting overlooking the Monte Carlo Marina. Linen table cloths, fabulous service and, if you want, a menu to match (€1,300 for a sea food platter) but also a lunch set menu of two courses for €23.00. Be warned the wine list is a bit toppy, starting with a bottle of rose at €70.00 or €8 a glass. We would very much recommend La Maree.

Chez Lulu
Cuisine: Varied
5 rue Frederic Isnard, Antibes
T: +33 (0)4 89 89 08 92
Last tried: October 2017
TripAdvisor Reviews
This is a bit different and may not be for everybody. But we think it is great fun. It is a table dd'hote restaurant. So starters are various hors d'oeuvres, which are placed on your table and you can help yourself. There is no choice of main course and then to finish a selection of puddings. We visited for the first time in October 2017 and loved it.

That said Antibes has literally hundreds of restaurants to choose from. TripAdvisor lists 676 as of February 2018.

La Colombe d'Or [O]
Cuisine: French Traditional
1 Place du General de Gaulle, 06570, Saint-Paul-de-Vence
T: +33 (0)4 93 32 80 02
Last tried: October 2016
This, for me, is one of the best restaurants in France and should be visited at least once in life time. Art (and I mean art Picasso, Matisse etc) hangs everywhere, accepted in payment in years gone by for meals taken by the artist at this 100 year old restaurant. It still retains the character and charm of a bygone era. The charm of the restaurant is evident in the service and the food. Staff are delightful and efficient, the food amazing and the open air terrace is a wonder to dine on. Booking Essential.
TripAdvisor Reviews Ignore the negative reviews, this says more about the reviewer than the restaurant. I have been at least five times and each time has been magical.

Galerie des Arcades
Cuisine: French Traditional
16 place des Arcades, 06410, Biot
T: +33 (0)4 93 65 01 05
Last tried: July 2018
We visited Biot for the first time in the summer of 2018. If you have a car, Biot is well worth a visit, much more charming than the better known Mougins and Valbonne, and if you want to have lunch here, we can highly recommend the delightful restaurant Galerie des Arcades. Simple, lovely food served by the owners Famille Brothier.

There are more bars in Cannes than you could possibly need and certainly a bar to suit everybody’s taste, but the following are a few of our favourites.

Majestic

We love the bar in the Majestic for great cocktails and nibbles in a relaxed and sophisticated surroundings though we wished they would change the chairs.

Five Hotel
Top floor Five Hotel

This bar on top of the Five Hotel, which is just a stroll from the apartment, has been redecorated and we found it a bit cold but it might be better in summer.

La Chunga

Opposite the Martinez. This place is fun. Serves food but we have not tried it yet! It is a bit of Cannes institution and has been around since 1958. The Daily Telegraph best describes it "Opposite the Hotel Martinez, La Chunga considers itself a plush, louche Cannes institution, quite correctly. It starts out, early in the evening, as a standard Italo-Provencal restaurant (though with some non-standard prices). Later, it evolves into a piano and live music bar for a clientele sufficiently grown-up to know what a whisky sour is, and sufficiently rich to have some very pretty company to drink it with. Things can get frisky, even sleazy, in the early hours when folk from the festivals roll in."

At the end of the Quai Saint-Pierre. We have not tried the bar on the top floor, but it was recommended by our neighbours at 15 rue Notre Dame.

Carlton Hotel
Last tried: August 2017
If you are going in the summer and can sit outside as we did in the summer of 2017, then this is a great bar, buzzy and wonderful people watching but avoid the inside, it can be likened to sipping a cocktail in a shopping mall.
