Description: Deep in the heart of le Suquet, in the old city of Cannes, the conviviality of a genuine French bistro, with a French traditional cuisine-lover chef. In a smart, ostentation less setting, characteristic of the genuine bistros of Paris, he thus gives back honour - in putting them in our dishes marrowbones, calf Blanquette , foie gras, truffles...great selection of wines

“A good example of a marketplace Bistro”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

If you're keen on traditional fare can recommend this place. It's not cheap and doesn't have a formule of two courses nor a menu to offer but we enjoyed the meal anyway even though it blew the budget a little! The menu shows lots of choice and the selection we had was very enjoyable. For starters there is the all hallowed onion soup (with croutons and melted cheese) so beloved of such restaurants in France, or frog's legs, snails from Burgundy and even bone marrow to eat with melba toast and a spoon. My friend took the soup and enjoyed it and I couldn't pass on the marrow. It was quite good though I've had better in a specialist establishment in Paris some years ago. For mains the fish of the day was baked sea bass which my friend ordered and thoroughly enjoyed. I went for kidneys in pepper sauce with mash and could not complain. The service was very good and attentive. The place was full of men in suits as the annual real estate conference was on in town and it was a little more noisy than it would normally be but even so the tables are well spaced and nicely set up with good white napery. I will go again but not often because of the prices. The restaurant should introduce some form of formula for lunches and I hope they do.

“Avoid at all costs!”
Reviewed 5 October 2011

In an area full of charming and delicious restaurants, Chez Therese is best avoided. It was the most expensive meal in our two weeks in the Cote d'Azur and the worst meal, as well. Two of us ordered the pasta with truffles, one ordered the risotto with truffles, and the last ordered the scallops. The truffle dishes didn't smell or taste like anything --- and, if you've eaten truffles, you know that the smell and taste is almost overpowering (in a good way). We are in truffle season right now and I can only guess that they are using very very old truffles that have not been properly stored. My husband's scallops were undercooked --- which is never a good thing. My artichoke salad was passable and my husband's onion soup was about the worst soup we've ever tasted - murky, tasteless, and in desperate need of seasonings.

Please, please, do yourself a favor and go to one of the many other wonderful restaurants in this area --- Les Salon des Independants or Le Cosi, for example, or head out to Nice and eat at our very favorite restaurant in the Cote d'Azur, Voyageur Nissart. But don't waste your money here.

“Nothing Special”
Reviewed 5 May 2011

Average to poor quality food. Defenitely doesn't deserve a 4.5 rating! Good service, close to la Croisette but that is about the only 2 things. The food was really nothing special. onion soop way to sweet, Aioli rather bad, Baba au rhum was way too strong.

“great and robust french food”
Reviewed 17 April 2011

In this restaurant I enjoyed some very good French dishes in a charming place (near le Suquet) with friendly service and (for French averages) honest prices. I advise you the onion soup, but also a very good veal, cooked with a delicious sauce.
