One of the best dinners we have had in a long long time! Mario, the host was wonderful - witty, funny and a good laugh (Ta Tarte Tartin!!) The music was he played was great, it really added to the atmosphere of the night. We were sat outside and enjoyed a unique dinner - a glass of champagne with the starter, wine with the main course (which were amazing, we had ribs and chicken) followed by an amazing dessert with a shot! We ended up staying at the restaurant for about 3 hours and really had a great night.
Definitely recommend this place for all, groups of friends, couples, you will surely have a special night!

This is without doubt one of the best restaurants in the world. Food is plentiful and all very well prepared with fresh ingredients. The first courses are selected by the chef - the pate is amazing and so is the truffle ravioli. You select the main course from a wide variety of meats, foul and fish. The fish soup is an excellent choice and house specialty, but the meats are so well prepared they melt. Service is fun and not stuffy and the waiters will take a pause to play instruments and sing many songs during the evening. We absolutely love this restaurant and its owners - it is why we come to Cannes.

The place might be value for money with friendly owners! But the food is definitely not what we expected from the number one restaurant in Cannes!

I took my husband here for his bday dinner and we both LOVED it. First is a glass of champagne for each of us. Then they bring out a huge thing of pate and a salad. Then they brought us truffle ravioli that was AMAZING, then for the main course, I had the BBQ ribs and he had the lamb...both delicious. Then they brought us out vodka shots! Then crepes for dessert! EXCELLENT DINNER! Do not leave Cannes without eating here!

Tucked away around the corner from the main street at the top of the old town in Cannes you will find the Le Salon des Independants. It is now firmly on our list of restaurants to visit and is a great night out.

There is one fixed price menu of approx. 49€ which includes a welcome glass of champagne, a bottle of wine between two and a plate of charcuterie plus a house terrine with salad and lots of fresh bread. There is then a plate of ravioli with a truffle sauce served with a shot of vodka before the main course...a choice of fish, lamb, ribs etc. served with vegetables and duchesse potatoes (which has a great wack of garlic :)). There is also a choice of desserts including a wonderful panacotta. The food is well presented, tasty and plentiful and every single person in our group were very impressed.

The owners Mario and Andrea are great fun and great singers..and Mario is even a fair Elvis impersonator :) and especially impressive that they are able to sing in at least 4 languages (at least on the nights we were there!). Last November (2013) a large group of us were there celebrating a family christening and with a mix of Irish, French, Scottish and Spanish it was always going to be a great night. The nearby tables soon joined in and we soon had German, more Irish and even a Swiss couple all singing away...it was just a brilliant, unforgettable night.

So good was that night that we went back with other friends a couple of nights later for a repeat performance. We were back in June 2014 and everything was still just as perfect...don't miss this restaurant for a great night and ..join in the singing ! (TIP: Make a reservation to be guaranteed a table particularly at weekends or during festivals).

Looking forward to a return visit in October.
