“Expensive but fabulous atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2013

We arrived early on a cold evening in April and were given the prime table with a good view over the stylish restaurant interior and a good view and feel for the buzz of Le Suquet.

The scene was set for a memorable dinner and the food did not disappointment although it was not exceptionally good however the service was exceptionally good. We had a very enjoyable evening which was slightly marred by the expense. We know it is Cannes but 8 euros for bottled water and no wine under 50 euros a bottle is a bit 'over the top' in our opinion.

“Not As Good As It Looks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2013

La Cosi is easily the nicest looking restaurant in Le Suquet, it's tables dressed with white cloths and chairs with cushions. The decor is lovely. There is outside dining but the tables are so close together, you would be eating with your neighbours. My starter of vegetable tart was soggy and oily, most unpleasant and inedible. The lobster accompaniment was tough. The waiter was upset that I didn't enjoy it and cared enough to immediately show it to the chef who whipped up another within five minutes and which was much better. His excuse was that there was so much oil in the vegetable mix, it seeped into the pastry...I began to silently question his experience as a chef and whether he knew how oily food would react with pastry!

My pan fried John Dory was over cooked with a soggy skin and sitting on OK mashed potatoes. My husband's lamb was quite good. The service was impeccible and all the staff were efficient.

This was our second time at La Cosi, and I am unsure as to whether there will be a third next year.

“Great restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2013

Our hotel had recommended a number of restaurants in Le Suquet. Food and service was great, just a shame we couldn't sit outside but just as busy inside with a real buzz.

“good restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2012

We chose this restaurant just walking around Cannes. There was 4 od us. All the food was delicious, particularly fish dishes. Service was a bit strange: they started to serve us with one server, then another, and after a long pause (when no one came to us during a long time) third one. The desserts were absolutely spotless.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2012

Our hotel concierge recommended the restaurant and we're grateful he did. Our meal was absolutely incredible - I had the vegetarian tasting and my husband had the lamb. The pallet cleansers were amazing and the desserts absolutely fabulous. Presentation was excellent and proportions were larger than expected. Excellent service and friendly wait staff. Highly recommended.
