Restaurants in Cannes

Where to eat at the Cannes Film Festival

Eating is a national pass-time in France so French food should be a major highlight for any visitor. And Cannes is no exception. The city is teaming with eateries of all types, from small family-run cafes through to multi Michelin-starred world-beaters. You certainly won't be pushed for choice, regardless of the type of cuisine you desire, or to a large extent, on price.

Restaurants and cafes are dotted all over the city, but the highest density can be found in Centre Ville and Le Suquet. The three main strips are, the intersection of Rue Hoche and Rue Hélène Vagliano, along Rue Félix Fauré, and the block formed by Rue Fères Pradignac and Rue de Bateguier. All team with restaurants and the latter two are also good options for late night eats. For a more traditional experience there is also a multitude of restaurants on the pretty Rue Saint Antoine in Le Suquet.

Further back into town, you'll find a range of slightly cheaper restaurants by the train station on Rue Jean Jaurès, but the quality can be variable. Outside of Centre Ville, restaurants are predominantly the domain of locals and as such, are often cheaper than those in the Ring. But it depends on whether you want the walk.
