Our second evening of eating like a local in Cannes: La Cave , a tiny, lively old-style bistro serving classic French food and wine. Amazing how in an unbelievably modest sized open kitchen and service area, 2 chefs and 3 waiters can efficiently create and serve flavorful and filling plates to a packed restaurant all the while remaining amiable and attentive!
Pictured above: Duck Breast with Honey sauce and below: Loin of Veal with Mushrooms. I only wish we had a larger party so we could have ordered more.
One of the most popular restaurants in Cannes; La Cave is listed in the 10Best of Cannes and numerous other Cannes and travel websites. ” Chef Philippe Vergnes continues to confidently cook the dishes that have made the reputation of the place: stuffed sardines with wild herbs; cod Provençal; tomato cake; stuffed cabbage, aioli, pot-au-feu; lamb stuffed with artichokes; clafoutis, chocolate mousse… tranquil cooking, well presented. The wine card is the pride of this address: as rich in Bordeaux as in Provence domains, with grand crus and some nice Provence by the glass.” Le Guide Gantié
