In Cannes for MIDEM. Any recommendations?

First time poster here. I'm in Cannes for a few days for a music industry conference. Very much looking forward to trying a few not-so-expensive spots that have been discussed in this forum including La Brouette de Grand-Mère and Le Mère Besson. Walked past both tonight to check out the scene. Naturally, both were packed and I'll be sure to make reservation tomorrow. I think Villa des Lys (attached to our hotel) has a lunch for around 40 Euro. Will definitely let you know how it all goes!

If anyone has any other recommendations, I'd love to hear them. I'm surprised and excited by the number of moderately priced tables in this town!

Burger Bar in Mandalay Bay

Agree with mdietrich. Went there last night for dinner and we were very disappointed. Burgers were unexceptional on every count. I had the American Classic (bacon cheeseburger) and my girlfriend had the buffalo. Both were ho-hum, nothing special and definitely not worth $13+. The atmosphere was like a sports bar. Fries were bland but the onion rings had a light crust and were quite tasty. Everyone else in our party of 9 agreed: thumbs down on the Burger Bar. We'll try Rosemary's or Mesa Grill next time we get the hankering for a burger.
