“Very good but could be even better”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Lovely dinner outside on a summer Saturday evening. Tomato and mozzarella and green salads to start just right; good choices from the market. Main courses, magret de canard very good; red snapper good; scallops uninspired. Good French menu but perhaps too broad and ambitious. Absolutely charming waitress; rather charmless waiter. Nice setting in lively street of restaurants.

“Perfect Family Run Bistrot”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

Friendly, family-owned restaurant with consistently flavoursome and well prepared food. Unpretentious, good value and - as a regular to Cannes Film and Advertising Festivals - a perfect spot close enough for lunch while just out of the mayhem.

“Palme d'Or of the Cannes Food Festival”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

I was in Cannes for the film festival this year and was lucky enough to enter la Meissounière for dinner on my first night. The large choice of meals subtly combine traditionnal french food with some more audacious recipes from the very talented young chef. The wine choice is also amazing and the prices are refreshingly reasonable in comparison to the rest of the Cannes restaurants. Finally the team is dynamic, young, naturally welcoming and efficient (a feat which needs to be noted in the rush that is the film festival).


Highly recommended to all film festival goers and generally to all food lovers!

“Lovely restaurant”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

We had a great evening at La Meissouniere. Away from the tourist areas, this restaurant is a treat. Great food, great service and nice atmosphere - slightly more cosy lighting would make it perfect. Would return and recommend.

“Deliciously Fresh!”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

I ordered the pork salad with vegetables for lunch and it was truly delicious. Everything was fresh and flavored to perfection. The restaurant is perfectly located next to the train station in case you are arriving/departing by train. Service was very friendly. Interior is nice. Plenty of outdoor seating but no shade available, so we sat inside. Great variety of dishes to choose from.
