We first went to Le Cave after a bit of shopping at the market and return each time we come to Cannes. The menu is great and varies, although we tend to stick to charcuterie or grilled moules. The owner is very friendly and his little schnauzer, Jikka, welcomes one and all with a friendly bark. If you visit Marche... More

If you like busy then this is the place, 12 noon on a market day and this place is heaving! Get there early if you want to sit outside. Many meat and cheese platters with a great selection of reasonable and famous champagne by the glass. The food is simple with oysters a feature of the place. Great lunch stop.

We chose this place on Tripadvisor during our stopover in Cannes. What a great decision! We absolutely loved this little gem. My wife was craving oysters and La Cave Forville lived up to its high rating for its fresh seafood. It was also fun to watch our oysters being shucked right behind us. Our waiter crew were extremely friendly and... More

We loved our lunch here. Clearly a locals-hang-out, the wine we were recommended was a hit and the charcuterie platter was perfect. Planning to go back for the oysters soon!

Awesome place off the beaten path to duck into for an outstanding lunch at a fraction of the price of the well knowns in town.

The fresh seafood is superb and watching your oysters being shucked is a delight. The waiter was so helpful as the French Menue does need a guide for the non French speaking customer. A fabulous find in such a touristy town.....simple, fresh and stylish.

One of our favorites off the beaten track in Cannes, next to the Forville market and close to the Forville-Suquet parking. A great little modern wine bar to taste superb local wines accompanied by tapas (home made fois gras, pata negra...) and oysters. Super friendly service and free wifi and space to run around for the kids! Reasonably priced for... More

A great location, inviting service, food was stellar and wine is exquisite. The charcuterie and foie gras is still making my mouth water. The Sommelier, Vincent had recommendations and knowledge that heightened our experience. He was amazing. An excellent place to order a charcuterie, some cheeses, fresh oysters and sit back and sip some wine. We went on our last... More

Popped in on way back to studio after a day out. Champagne and Oysters were fantastic. A really well stocked wine bar. A must if you are in the area.
