What to Eat in Cannes

As a coastal town, Cannes boasts fantastic seafood. A classic Cannes dish combines the freshest seafood with vegetables from the south, all bathed in olive oil. The city counts more than 380 restaurants, ranging from hot spots for the rich and famous to brasseries and restaurants serving simpler Provençal cuisine. You'll find them in the city center, along Rue d'Antibes, La Croisette and the old town.

Located in Hôtel Martinez on the Bay of Cannes, La Palme d'Or is a great spot for a special occasion or simply a delicious meal thanks to its location overlooking La Croisette. The restaurant's Michelin-starred chef is known for serving dinner to the jury of the Cannes Film Festival, so you're likely in for a treat. Chef Christian Sinicropi is known for his innovative cuisine with options on the menu like a lamb shoulder tart and local purple asparagus. It also caters to the needs of its Hollywood clientele with vegetarian and vegan menus.

With cuisine inspired by the Mediterranean and Provence, La Môme, located in the Golden Square of Cannes, is best known for dishes like artichoke salad, braised octopus, Vitello Tonnato and ravioli stuffed with egg yolk.

For a slightly more relaxed outing, consider L'Affable Restaurant, a brasserie from Jean-Paul Battaglia just off of the Rue d'Antibes. For about 50 euros (approximately $55), choose from a menu of one appetizer, one main dish (like duck breast or candied lamb), and a dessert. The traveler-approved Bistrot Gourmand offers a similar three-course lunch for less than 30 euros (around $33). If your budget doesn't allow for Michelin-starred meals, consider dining around the Rue Commandant André, which is home to more affordable eateries like Bobo Bistro.
