Had a disappointing and expensive meal at lunchtime here today with friends. To our surprise there was no plat de jour (dish of the day) on the menu. My husband and I each had the dourade and it was a very small portion. So much so we were still hungry afterwards! A friend had the same dish just over two... More

A week on the riviera is costly. One of the highlights is a day on the plage. You want a clean sun lounger, clean sand with no stones under the water to bash your feet. Clean facilities for changing and clean loos can make your day. A good lunch is essential to keep up the feeling of a special day,... More

The previous reviews this year describe in detail the modernisation of this popular beach restaurant. In fact Theoule as a whole has a fresh face in 2016 with other long standing favourites, l'Aiguille, la Fontaine (now la cabane du pêcheur) Nino's and even Lou's on the Aiguille promenade smartened up and the little pathside garden well maintained. There are even... More

Just come to Le Magellan as we do every year and what a surprise. Over the winter they have built a whole new restaurant and it looks great. Shutters for the winter or the nights when it rains and a lovely wooden look that follows through to the beach mattresses and umbrellas. At night the lights shine and the ambiance... More

We spent a few days in Cannes with my sister and mother and found this place by chance trying to escape a very busy croisette beach. What a discovery!!! Brilliant place, you have space between loungers, staff is incredibly nice and accommodating, food is good and fresh, not overpriced at all, clear water and you have this beautiful view. I... More

New owner has obviously spent a fortune on composite decking, electric blinds etc. Looks like a little bit of St Tropez has moved in. Very disappointed with the food and service. Starter - prawn avocado was 16 euros special of the day - vast amount of bland sliced avocado, a bit of lettuce no dressing to speak of, 4 small... More

Le Magellan is located on the beach and so I highly recommend spending the day at the beach and having lunch at the restaurant. The food is always delicious and the service equally good. I recommend booking a table in advance because it gets very busy in the summer.

For the occasion a US Navy ship comes and anchors in the bay across the small town of Theoule sur Mer and a US band from that ship gives us a show at the small... More

This restaurant sits next to the beach and in the evening provides a great view of the bay and the twinkling lights of the houses which surround it. We dined here with friends and found the food and service to be of an excellent standard. I had the seared calamari on a bed of spaghetti and it was delicious. Others... More
