Host of the annual Cannes Film Festival

It hosts one of the most prestigious International film festivals in the world, but Cannes is more than a travel destination for filmophiles. Fashionistas and fun-seekers will find an exclusive city with high-end restaurants, exotic nightlife, luxury boutiques, and designer fashion shops lining La Croisette. Cannes is an amazing experience for the posh traveler, but it attracts history lovers as well, as no other town on the French Riviera has such a dramatic and mysterious past. One example? The famous Man in the Iron Mask was imprisoned on the Ile Sainte-Marguerite, half a mile off shore from the city.

Luxurious French Dining Editors' Note

A mix of juxtapositions, L'affable is a fancy French restaurant with a familial warmth. Locals come for superb gastronomic delights prepared by famed chef Jean-Paul Battaglia, like the curried lobster and the lamb rack succulent. It’s the signature Grand Marnier soufflé that people write home about, however, so don’t forget to take a peek at the dessert menu.

The bustling bistro has a sleek, modern feel, with banquette seats and clean, beige backdrops. Yet, they maintain a cozy quality by having their kitchen open to view. L'affable is always busy, so be sure to call ahead or use the website to make a reservation. Dinner is a fixed-price menu, and you pay for the excellence of flavor and presentation.
