Cannes - or thereabouts

I will be in Cannes the week of May 22 and wondering about places worth finding.
The festival folk inhabit the 'crooked street', a motley collection of mediocre restaurants in the town. But I've read about a wonderful brasserie in Antibes that has the best bouillabaisse in the area (Patricia Wells).
Since I will be able to shoot out of Cannes for lunches or dinners, I'd appreciate any recommendations (I'm already hoping to make it to Le Moulin in Mougins).
I'm going to be in Cannes/Nice/Antibes during that week as well. I read a little travel guide and Antibes seems to have alot of great food...Nice as well too. Check out Barnes and Noble for books, in case no one replies here. :)
Mougins is a quick drive from Cannes and I highly recommend it for
much more than Le Moulin. Or take the bus for lunch and walk back.
I've eaten at a number of places inside the village which were nothing
short of excellent. The only name that comes to mind is Restos des
Arts, which I picked because it had the cheapest menu and turned out
to be the highlight. The waiter laughed and laughed and laughed at
my attempts to use his language. But in a good way. Awesome fish soup,
though you'll find that everywhere.
In Cannes itself, I suggest staying far, far away from Planet
Hollywood, if it is still there. :)
