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).
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. :)
