Fantastic! The menu is limited, but everything we had was excellent. So well prepared, and the service was first class. My steak was cooked beautifully, and our kids attempted to demolish their enormous portions of spaghetti carbonara. The wine is good value, and the atmosphere was great. We'll be back!

Thank Nunnion

The sign outside looked like it was based on the Disney lettering/font, probably because Mickey Mouse was the chef. Food was bland and looked like it was straight out of the microwave. Wouldn't recommend. Staff were pleasant though

Do not dine here. The menu is so limited. There were barely any options. When the food finally came, it was so dry, and not filling at all since the portions were small. The food was actually so awful and tasteless! Definitely the worst meal I've had in France. The staff was also so rude. The waiter barely looked at... More

Had some Loup Grille and St Pierre fillets, with house wine. Best fish we had in Cannes so far (3 days). Highly recommend this place.

I loved the location of this small restaurant, the food was excellent and the staff was very friendly. Definitely a place where i'll go to have another lunch or dinner next time i'm in Cannes

We happened on Le Dauphin in search of a restaurant for dinner, and were pleased with the menu choices. The lady at the entrance, presumably the owner, was very pleasant and sat us outside as we asked. She took our drink order and explained the specials. The decor and setting of the restaurant is not necessarily special, very similar to... More

"Le Dauphin" or "The Dolphin", is a small very well run restaurant in the interesting side street of 'Bivouac Napoleon' in Cannes, near the Festival Gardens (film stars etc at certain times of the year), and close to the Old Town and Le Souquet. Food is excellent and comes from a small but interesting menu with a very acceptable wine... More

We ate here (note ate, not dined) in June, just after the Film Festival. Inexpensive, basic fare. The tomato sauce was little better than catsup with a little meat added. Simple decor, simple food. Near the Palais de Congress.

Cosy place with well-made, tasty food, especially considering the modest prices. Very nice staff who saw to our every need. A bit away from all the more 'touristy' places and all the chaos.
