It's a pain: most of the on-beach restaurants around this famous coast, however well-presented, have a busy main road and rail track close by. What makes the Aiguille special is that it's right at the end of lovely Theoule beach, a short walk along the seashore from the village centre. So the road is out of hearing, way above you on the clifftop and the railway has dived inland and into tunnels.
So look forward to the sound of the waves on the sand, golden sunsets across the bay and a tranquility matched only by the palm-fringed beaches of the Caribbean or Indian Ocean. Yes, it's a uniquely lovely setting.
The food is typical of the locality, service is friendly and the walk back to Theoule after dinner a further highlight as you pass along the charmingly illuminated promenade.For once, it really is all about the location, location.

This Provencal style restaurant is in a simple beachside building wedged between a broad sandy beach and the red rocks of the small National Park abutting the Esterel massif. A good few hundred metres from the nearest busy road (the coast road also runs above the woodland but there is no sight or sound of it) it is a peaceful location for dinner, with views across the Baie de Cannes to the lights of that resort, and an excellent place from which to watch the fireworks in the summer season.
The hotel has had the same staff and menu for many years and is none the worse for that. It is very busy in the summer - I am impressed how they manage from such a tiny kitchen - so the service can be a little perfunctory, but there is a buzzy atmosphere when it is full (reservations recommended on a night when fireworks are scheduled). During the day it is a beach bar which also serves lunch.
NB You have to park a good 10 minutes walk away along a delightful path along the shoreline.
The goats cheese wrapped in filo pastry with salad is a brilliant starter and the steaks are good. Fish is pretty reliable here with a fair amount of choice.
