How we choose the best restaurants in Cannes

Our team independently selects every restaurant on this list. A journalist familiar with Cannes and who has dined at the restaurant does the writing. Our criteria focus on high-end places delivering an authentic feel of the city. Stand-out dishes, prime location, and warm service are key. We also value notable reputations. The list gets an update monthly to reflect new openings and changes in existing ones.
