Seemed to be taken by surprise that we needed a glass of wine pronto when we arrived. Service imporved thereafter. Fish soup was good. Service a bit slow but we were a large group

Expectations were much bigger. But the service is really bad. 1.5h waiting to get a piece of bread... if you like crab - don't takie crab tartar with wasabi... there is no taste of crab. Just wasabi. Shripms... grilled. Ok, let's grill them but don't make them dry... there are a lot of better restaurants around.

I've been eating here for years, and the quality never varies, being uniformly excellent. The food is classic French cooking that leans towards fish dishes but that also includes some fine meat-based platters. The service is polite if occasionally a bit old-school, the view of the port is lovely and I highly recommend the friture as a starter (although it's... More

A party of four of us had a most enjoyable dinner here. We all agreed that our food, mainly fish, was very good indeed. The service was prompt and agreeable. The setting was perfect. I would recommend this place highly.

Was there with friends and returned with business associates. Food is generally good, although too salty. My biggest complaint was service as the waiters tend to stand around while glasses need refilling, this happenning both times I was there. Potions are generous.

We were very much in the hunt for a great bouillabaisse and decided this would be a good choice. We sat on the patio as it was a warm evening. This is a busy street (cars) so more noisy than expected. We asked for a simple green salad to start and then our entree for 3. They present a huge... More

As residents of Monaco, Cannes is a interesting and local town to visit. Gaston Gastounette is a huge disappointment and not reflective of Cannes & its restaurateurs. Whilst the menu is interesting, the décor pleasant, the table service is terrible, and the management even worse. We arrived, a party of 4, at 8pm. our first course arrived in 20 minutes,... More

Good range of dishes and staff will dress ( I.e. debone) your fish for you if you wish. I had fish soup entree ( so tasty)tuna steak main( wonderful) and profiteroles... More

Delicious sea food and nice area to go walk and hop into Gaston Gastounette and enjoy the delicious oysters, shrimps, and mussels. The peach melba desert is a must; very refreshing!
