Food and drink
Essentially, it's French Mediterranean fare prepared with great skill, attention to detail and a twist of invention. So expect excellent fish (the roast cod on a bed of vegetables is a stand-out, as is the wood-grilled sea-bass). Shellfish, too - but also splendid braised lamb and some pretty fine beef, as well.
In fact, it's got all bases covered.
Sunny and informal. The pavement terrace is the place to be if the weather's fit. Inside, it's light, clear and contmporary - with a sort of interior garden ambience.
Pretty much faultless - whether you are served by the charming young Lithuanian lady or one of her older, male colleagues. Cannes serving staff can be wildly off-hand, giving the impression that customers are nothing but a damned nuisance.
Not here, though. The attention's terrific and the smiles apparently genuine.
Opposite the Palais des Festivals, but a hop from La Croisette and the port.
This is the clincher. There's a plat-du-jour (dish of the day) at 14.50 euros - and a two course menu for 17.90 euros. For the quality on offer, such prices rate as bargains.
