Since from 1963

The Storie

Since its creation in 1963, which was born from a idea of Jean Brialy and Gerard Fery, the Maschou Restaurant has never ceased to welcome the epicureans derived from both excellent taste and elegant manners such as those of the French. Nevertheless, the success of this establishment is inseparable from the work of Alain Viotti since his arrival in 1983. A man whose dedication to forging the Maschou into a real instution in Cannes, just like his son Emmanuel since 2012.

In 2016, due to their success, Emmanuel and his team created a new annexe called Le Petit Maschou, allowing them accommodate 6 to 10 additional seating places. This is Ideal if you want to spend an evening with friends to appreciate the prestigious wine cellar testifying to the rich wine list which is made available to the connoisseurs.

Today, the Maschou restaurant perpetuates the union of tradition and innovation in a warm and intimate atmosphere, thanks to the enthusiasm of Emmanuel Viotti and his team.
