Conference weeks in Cannes are always a busy time and booking ahead for a table in a restaurant is essential. The same goes for the peak tourist season. Having said that...we were lucky enough to grab a table at Da Bouttau restaurant on a busy Wednesday night during MipTV.
The small road that leads up to the oldest part of town, Le Suquet, is lined with small boutiques, souvenir shops, bars and restaurants. The tables spill out into the street and create a lovely atmosphere for an evening drink and meal. After failing to get into a few restaurants (we had not made an advance booking) we were welcomed by the lovely hostess at the Da Bouttau restaurant.
