ciroThe best pizza I had in Cannes was at a place called Ciro. If you are craving some pizza, definitely stop by as the pizzas are thin, crisp, light, and nicely sauced.

Brunch at Carlton

carlton-brunch-1The best brunch in Cannes takes place only on Sundays at the beach restaurant of the Carlton Hotel. With a giant variety of tiny, impeccably made, very detailed pieces of food ranging from desserts to mini turkey clubs to mixed seafood, the brunch is an incredible meal and good way to start the day.

Da Laura

da-lauraSurprisingly, one of the greatest pasta dishes ever is located at a restaurant named Da Laura in Cannes, France. I loved the spicy arrabbiata sauce on a filling dish of just-right, al dente spaghetti. The sauce is think, but very splashy and has a steady heat. Go and taste this pasta if in Cannes!

nounou-3One of the biggest specialties of the South of France is bouillabaisse. Bouillabaisse is fish soup that is a fish tasting broth with fish, sometimes lobster or shrimp, and comes with toast and rouille (an orange or yellow mayo based mixture). Nounou gave a variety of five flakey fish in a thick, warm, salty broth. I loved putting the toast with the semi-sweet rouille in the soup and soaking it. With a touch of Parmesan cheese, the bouillabaisse was an experience!

Ice Cream Stand

ice-cream-stand-2 ice-cream-stand-1Unfortunately I don’t believe this ice cream stand has a specific name, but on the side of the boardwalk, outside of the Carlton Hotel, some of the best banana soft serve lives in a small ice cream stand. Only two euros, this treat is great for a hot day or a dessert.
