This restaurant is half block from Rue d´Antibes and is a real gem. No tables outside so you must pay attention to find it. The dinning room is cosy and tables at the right side have one side with benches and are so close... We prefer to seat at the back end in a regular table. The staff is very... More

We were in Cannes for a week, and l'affable was my favourite restaurant throughout. The food is very traditional French which I love. It is a reasonable price and just the most fab ambiance. Highly recommended

We had dinner and all was very good. The choice in the menu is good there is something for everyone and price is fair (it's a $$$ restaurant). Stuff was very friendly and professional. The only negative was the atmosphere in the restaurant. No tables outside and very "dark" in the dinning room as well as we had the AC... More

This restaurant had been recommended to us by very knowledgeable local residents. A relatively small room with pleasant decor and good art on the walls provide a nice athmosphere. We were a party of seven, and we had a large variety of dishes, all of which can be labelled "excellent". This place has good food! The relatively small staff work... More

We were referred to this restaurant by the head waiter in another fine place and had a lunch and a dinner there The waitstaff and management was very cordial and helpful, even providing a change to their menu of the day to meet a request of my daughter. All the food was excellent but the asparagus soup was in a... More

We are fussy about food and we did eat very well in Cannes but this place was exceptional - it was way superior to anything else we encountered and at a reasonable price for Cannes. The lamb was meltingly tender and all well seasoned and carefully plated without being too arty. The tables are cramped and there is no view... More

This restaurant was very close to our hotel and we opted to try it while in Cannes. The restaurant is relatively small with indoor dining only and not far from the beach. The food was excellent - real French food and not tourist fare. The price was also very reasonable and the service was very good also. We didn't have... More

This was one of our best meals in France. Lovely hostess/manager and wait staff. Watch the pastry chef and team prep and cook - through a glass window. We enjoyed it so much that we went into the kitchen to thank everyone. So good! The grand mariner soufflé is amazing. Book in advance.

Most of the tables are positioned closely together so unless you are lucky enough to book one that is not, then you are eating with your neighbours. Not my idea of a quiet dinner. We had a great table however, so no complaints there! My hot artichoke starter was a joy and I have spent a little time in working... More

Great menu, a bit less casual. The wine list is average; for appetizers, the foie gras good (but not great) and the tempura was quite good; the lamb was very good, the fish in cream sauce was ok, a bit bitter to me, but my fiance liked it. It was a very pleasant experience, but more polite than warm.
