Famed for its sunny beaches and film festival (as well as many a rather fun work conference), Cannes attracts celebrities from all over the world. Unfortunately, this means that restaurants can bump up the price of their menus, which makes it even more important that you choose the right venue to eat at! Here are five of our favourites:
La Palme d’Or
