The main branch of Astoux--on the corner, just a few doors down--is packed to the gills. You could wait 45 minutes for a table at the boisterous seafood restaurant. Surely, so many people cued up for a seat can't be wrong. Or, you could walk three doors down to their much quieter sister outpost and get seated immediately.

Your seafood antennae rise up. If they have the same name, and they share the same menu, suppliers and kitchen, why is the other place not crowded? You're hungry. Go.

You are seated right away, outside or in. The waiters speak English. They bring you bread, mayo, and whelks right away. Drinks and the main course can seem to take some time. Perhaps the communal kitchen gives preference to the main branch? But the food is delicious. Fresh seafood, well prepared. No, it's not a bargain. But you're in Cannes. You didn't come here for a bargain, and you didn't come here for sketchy fish. You came here for a good meal in town, and that's what you've got.

....Fruits de mer - a real speciality in this open fronted restaurant.
Staff are friendly, in their own time, but it is worth the wait. They welcome you with a platter of winkles/mayonnaise and onion vinegar and a basket of bread (brown and white). Clever little plastic encased 'pins' do not make the winkles any easier to eat. I gave up after six - never been a big favourite anyway!
They serve big portions, so once again, my wife and I shared starter and main. Super fresh big prawns (24 euros for 8) and a divine risotto with four lovely scallops (29 euros) - so not exactly a cadeaux (present/give away).
Cheapest wine on their somewhat greedy list is 25 euros a bottle.
A huge slice of tarte tatin was accompanied by a 'boule' of caramel ice-cream - super.

My wife and i had dinner here for NYE 2017. A wonderful seafood fest before enjoying the fireworks along the boulevard.
A great evening.
Great shellfish platter and gamba with ink pasta. Fast service and good wine selection.
We recommend the restaurant completely.

Been here before and food is always very very good, never a bad experience. A bit expensive, but they have a very tasty fish soup at 16 euro on the menu which will fill you up without breaking the bank!
Giving 4 point rating instead of 5 due to a waiter who was excellent all night, but when it came to paying he pointed out (in English, despite the fact that we spoke French with him all night) that the tips are not included in the bill... It did say on the menu - prix net, service compris... We were going to leave him a tip anyway, but after his comment decided not to.

This is one of the top seafood restaurants in Cannes and really does not disappoint. The location is on the main strip - croisette, Palais and then a little further - so very easy to find. Service very professional, speed of serving just right and quality of the food 1st class. Pricing is of a level that you would expect for the location, quality etc. so all in all very good and a must visit restaurant when in Cannes.
