This restaurant is situated in a small lane that winds up a moderately steep hill in the famous Le Suquet area of the old town in Cannes. The lane is pedestrian only and is cobbled with old buildings on either side that are somewhat uncared for but that just adds to the atmosphere of the old town, especially when it starts to get dark and the sodium street lights come on. The magic really starts as the volume of people walking by increases s the evening progresses.
I sat outside on the sloping lane with a table for two and watched the nightlife pass me by as I dined; it was like watching a fashion show with your own private cat walk. Buskers passed by playing their instruments and people selling flowers and all sorts of other items also passed by like a revolving shop window. I had a fish soup to start, with roulade and crouton, followed by Margret de canard and finally a warm chocolate tart with a lemon sorbet.
I really enjoyed this place but was a little disappointed with the food, the ingredients and recipes were fine but it just seemed the kitchen staff where tired juts like the dish. The duck was a little too cooked and seemed to the worse for wear by sitting on the hot plate too long before served. Vegetables also seemed to be overcooked and cold. However, the atmosphere made up of the food quality.
