Le Caveau 30
Astoux et Brun
Since it was launched in 1946, the Cannes film festival quickly became known as being the most prestigious film event in the world, placing Cannes high on the world’s most glamorous cities list.
Walking around Cannes, its mild climate, affluent boutiques, luxury hotels, and seafront lined with ripe and fertile palm trees, one cannot help but feel the wealth and prestige hanging in the air in this French Riviera city.
Naturally such a cosmopolitan and affluent town takes its cuisine extremely seriously and Cannes boasts a brood of top-notch eateries, serving only the finest of culinary delights by some of the world’s most internationally-renowned chefs. Given its devotion to only serving the very highest quality of food, knowing which restaurant to dine in in Cannes can prove difficult.
To help recruit some decisiveness, Faconnable has located three of the most crème-de-le-crème restaurants this exquisite town on the Cote d’Azur has to offer.
Le Caveau 30
Situated near the stunning Vieux Port, Le Caveau 30 is one of the best seafood restaurants in Provence. Elegance is at the heart of this fine eatery, in not only its décor and clientele, but also the dishes it presents. Alongside seafood, Le Caveau 30 is also renowned for serving exquisite seasonal and regional produce, as well as its legendary bouillabaisse.
Reiterating the focus on films that runs throughout much of Cannes, Palm Square boasts a film-related décor, subtly toned down by a colonial and elegant style.
This highly sophisticated bar, lounge and restaurant, is particularly popular amongst the most glamorous ‘heads’ in Cannes and is the perfect place to do some serious luminary spotting. The cuisine here is traditionally French, although its rich flavours touch upon practically every nationality in the world.
Astoux & Brun
Serving oysters that are known as being the best on the Cote d’Azur, if you are a lover of this delicacy a trip to Astoux & Brun is imperative. Situated right in the heart of Cannes, the terrace at Astoux & Brun offers a fantastic view of this intriguing French Riviera city and is the perfect place to wine and dine on some of the highest quality food in France, whilst watching this well-heeled world go by.
