Description: La Napoule was once a tiny fisherman’s village, nestled in the heart of the bay of Cannes. That is where Chefs Stephane, Antoine and Francois Raimbault chose to settle down. There, in the shade of century-old plane trees, in a luxuriant patio of exotic vegetation, is the Oasis, the glamorous two-Michelin-star restaurant. At the break of dawn, Stephane Raimbault heads to the Cannes Forville market. He selects the day’s best fish and vegetables that make his cuisine truly Mediterranean, yet tinted with very personal Asian influences. Yes, the Chef spent nine years working in the Land of the Rising Sun… a perpetual source of inspiration he shares with his brother Antoine, behind the stoves of the Oasis. The result : a gastronomy that respects the freshest produce, anchored in our beautiful Mediterranean terroir, yet always inclined to make you travel! On the sweet side, Pastry Chef Francois Raimbault’s « Caravane des Desserts » lets you into a world of seasonal tarts, pastries and cakes while Head Sommelier Pascal Paulze develops a wine list with some of France’s rarest biodynamic vintages. Member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux association, the Oasis defends a gastronomy where only taste matters, where excellence should not overshadow simplicity and warmth. With the Michelin-star Oasis, the new bistrot « L’Etage », the pastry shop and the Oasis cooking school, the Raimbault brothers have created a word dedicated to gourmet temptation… you will not be able to resist!

We are living all summer in la Napoule were several times in Oasis and this time decided to visit their new Bistro Oasis.
Fist time we were with friends one week ago. We liked a lot of dishes from cart and we decided to try several of them. Tuna tartare and foie gras were good. We also took pasta with traffels but it was over cooked we asked if it was possible to cook other pasta with lobster al denté but waitress sad that it's impossible because all pasta cook in advance! We were surprised because it's a restaurant with Michelin star and cook proper pasta not so difficult. But we order filet Rossini and it was very nice but one of us were waiting it so long because waitress told us that it fell on the floor and they were cooking another one.
Yesterday we decided to go and try again. We order a bottle of champagne but waitress couldn't add it in ours glasses because she told us she didn't authorize to do it))) we did it ourselves. We ordered filets Rossini but it weren't a fillet it were like faux fillets and frites were worse than in Macdonalds! Waitress forgot to bring bread and water.
We were absolutely disappointed and never go ther again.

In 2013 I wrote a review about the Bistro in L'Oasis with the above heading. Not sure that it is Oasis, given that it is pretty busy- a full house and lots of waiters running up and down stairs with trays. Since that visit we have eaten in the main, Michelin-starred restaurant (a terrific experience) but went back to the Bistro in April. Again it was amazing value at €32 for the formule at dinner ( only €1 dearer than 4 years ago!). I ate a la carte, which was €35 for my two courses. Including coffee and a bottle of wine it was €117 for 2 before service for an outstanding meal.
Thoroughly recommended- but for that special occasion the main restaurant is worth a try, though it certainly not cheap.

So much wanted to love this place. Warm welcome, pleasant environment for catching up with a good old friend. Sommelier steered us to the best wine possible without pushing us into a 'pairing wine menu' of which I'm not a fan at all. So all good until the 'amuses' arrived, an oyster ceviche ruined by basil and vinegar made me long for just a few oysters... The first course, a king crab cocktail brought back the overbearing basil flavor, in the form of a basil olive oil that most likely also made it impossible to enjoy the oyster earlier on. Really too bad as the crab was sublime if you managed to scrape of the sauce. The second course, veal, lacked inspiration, the two beautiful white asparagus looked and tasted tired after an overly enthusiastic 'gratinee' process. The cheese after dinner was too cold so lacked taste. The patisserie unfortunately also failed to impress, again too many overbearing unnecessary flavors. We left the place a bit sad as it could have been just as stellar as the Michelin stars suggest. Good ingredients, wonderful service and a great chef who unfortunately is trying to be innovative. No need to, less is always more.

i have eaten in the Bistro three or four times and have been very impressed with the food and service. Last week, however, I visited with a friend and it was quite busy. We were squashed between two more tables for two. We could hear the conversations either side of us which made it very uncomfortable. The food and service was very good but the lack of space made it very uncomfortable.
