When I get home late, or don’t feel like cooking (usually the latter!), I know I can always rely on a nearby restaurant for good traditional French cooking and good value (3 course menu for 17€). I haven’t been disappointed, having eaten their often. The ambiance is warm and welcoming, whether dining inside or on the small front terrace (amusing to watch the village shuttle wind its way down the narrow side street).
Le Manoir is owned and run by Jean-Claude (from Cannes)and his sister, Liliane (from Theoule-sur-Mer) who prides herself on her traditional French, home-style cooking, “sans chi-chi” (simple with no added fuss), and her versatility in using fresh ingredients.
In searching for a restaurant site, they visited Haut de Cagnes-sur-Mer, a medieval village just outside of Nice, and immediately fell in love with it – their current location, a few steps below the Grimaldi Chateau, officially opened in 2007. Although closed on Tuesdays, they are open on Sundays, and will warmly welcome you, “sans chi-chi”!
