Can there be many things more romantic than the combination of the setting sun and the glow of the Mediterranean? We think not. Le 72 (taking its name from its address) is a smart little brasserie-cum-cocktail bar in Cannes that provides both. Its chief asset is its large, sunny terrace from where you can people watch over a bowl of bouillabaisse by day and sip a martini under the stars at night. Ideally situated on the Croisette, next to swanky hotel by the seafront, it’s right in the heart of things. Inside, the green décor is attractive if unremarkable but the food is good, the menu traditionally French, while the cocktails are made with care. Grab a table outside, order an aperitif and enjoy the quintessential Riviera experience.
