Since my last visit in October 2015, Pause Café has been refurbished, with banquette seating (and more of it) and updated toilets (much nicer). The welcome, though, is the same, it's still a place frequented by locals who all know each other and coming here on a solo basis is not frowned upon, quite the opposite (the elderly lady next...

I was recommended to have lunch here as I work in the area. Ok it's a busy month....then why not employ more staff? I sat and waited 10mins before a young girl came. The plate was slammed onto the table. I asked for bread...never got it. The waiter totally ignored me... then when he saw me writing on Trip the... More

There were 3 of us. We all had the 3 course under 20 euro set menu. After a slow start, the service really picked up and the food was excellent. I would go again.

We were visiting Cannes for the day and stumbled across this place. The set lunch was excellent value - pork for me, fish for my wife - with fruit salad and chocolate pud for desert. Lovely service and we now understand why it was packed with locals! Well worth a visit!

Went in on the off chance today, looked ok, liked the menu. No problem with the food but the service was dreadful, we waited 30 mins for our food and 20 for the bill. Don't go if you're in a hurry!

We did wait 45min for A starter that never came then decided to leave when the family of 6 next to us got their main courses... They arrived 10min after... More

This is the perfect place to spend the evening in Cannes; not just does the interior provide the great French atmosphere but the food is worth every single penny (honestly)! Since this area in Cannes is like a chocolate box full of restaurants, we spent some time dithering at which one to go to and we were originally persuaded by... More

Visited this cafe whilst on a trip to Cannes. The cafe is decorated lovely (and fully air conned) staff were friendly & service was quick! I had the mozzarella salad, which was delicious & fresh and a massive portion (so go hungry) and very reasonable priced! one of my favourite places I went whilst on holiday! 5 stars :)

We chose this restaurant for dinner when we visited Cannes. We both chose fish dishes and were not disappointed. The fish was great, the waitress was very sympathetic and friendly. Due to the heat we chose to sit inside, where it was a little bit cooler and we were away from the street (as the street was really busy and... More
