It seems like it was a such long time ago that we visited Cannes, France but looking at my archived photos, because I didn’t have a current shot that I wanted to post this week, I was reminded that it was just last year that we were there.
I found some restaurant doors in the alleyways and streets of the Old Town area; they seem to be very picturesque and reasoning suggests that it must be an ancient marketing tool where, if you have interesting doors people will stop to look at them, take a peek inside, smell the aroma of their cooking specialties and then you’re hooked on staying for lunch or dinner. Don’t know if the marketing theory is true but there were sure a lot of people having dinners and drinks at those restaurants.
The first door was taken during our first walk-through the Old Town area during the day and the mural painting of the flowers, window, and guy and his cow looked realistic; the restaurant was closed at this time.
The second photo was also taken during the same day (hence no people doing photo bombs while I was shooting).
The third photo was taken a short walk near the Old Town area where people have a view of the Marina during the dinner hour. As we walked by we could see the diners were enjoying themselves.
We walked past these 2 guys and stared (politely) at their dinner and vowed we’ll be back and the next evening we returned and ordered that platter of seafood (shared by 3 of us). It was delicious! If we ever go back to Cannes I’m going to look for this place again.
So, go to Cannes if you can to get enticed by their fantastic doors (the food and scenery come with the enticements).
