    1. For upscale dining, try any of the following (all two star restaurants in the Guide Michelin): Jacques Chibois in Grasse (creative food, a great place to stay as well); L'Oasis in La Napoule(Asian accented French food; try lunch on the terrace); or Jacques Maximim (a chef who has had his ups and downs, but is in a groove). For more casual food, try Mere Besson or Caveau 30 both in Cannes. Avoid the Alain Ducasse restaurant in Monaco. Pretentious, expensive, a waste.

        Are you refering to the Louis XV in the square across from the casino?

            In what part of the Bay Area are these places?

            1. re: MarkB

              These places are in the minds of many people currently located in the Bay Area, as this thread illustrates.

                Why not move this discussion to the International Board?
