“Broke my own rule - should have read the reviews”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

Walking around and wanting some lunch, this looked like a reasonable spot with good patronage. Can't really agree with the terrible reviews. We had a salad nicoise and a salad paysan and both were acceptable if not outstanding. We also had some cold, white wine. The service wasn't that bad and the language thing (we speak passable French) not an issue. We are not going to rave about it but it served its purpose and we enjoyed watching the world go by..

“Don't go here!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

We were met by a really rude waiter that didn't speak a word English. They had a full page of pizzas that we could not order (would be a good thing to mention when handing out menus...). The food that we finally got after a really long time was not even eatable. Wish we had read about this restaurant here before we walked in. Would never recommend anyone to go here, would rather warn people!

“Rude staff, food mediocre”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

Stopped here for lunch. Seated quickly by a waiter who asked (in French) if we were Italian, German or American. We replied( again, in French) that we were English. From therein, we were virtually ignored the entire time and it was obviously a real chore to serve us. Another large table came in after us (French family) who, after discussing the menu with the same waiter, got up and left!! Wouldn't go here again and wouldn't recommend it to others. Far nicer places, with better food.

“Ignorance in a nutshell”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

Terrible service. Some dress code for the employees should be implemented. The food was OK but it took long time to get it. Not to recommend.

“Choose only the mussels”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

A wonderful lunch of mussels and wine. What a great way to spend a day in Cannes. Waiting time was rather lengthy, but when you get such a delicious meal, all is forgiven .
