An islet perfumed with Mediterranean essences

Nestled on the first floor of the Hotel Gray d’Albion, the gastronomic place displays at first its lush garden and amazes by its calm and serenity.

This islet scented with Mediterranean essences distinguished itself at first and foremost by its chic and refined decoration, its cozy and vegetal atmosphere, its harmonies of soft colors, oscillating between almond green and light gray. The warm and comfortable sofas, the beautiful tables in light wood, the large white umbrellas, the service, both discreet and dynamic, reflect with happiness the Art of Living of the French Riviera.

Pierrick Cizeron, Executive Chef of Cannes Barrière Hotels
Graduate of the School of Arts Culinaires et Hôtellerie (Paul Bocuse Institute), in which he obtained a professional cooking baccalauréat, Pierrick Cizeron made his classes with Alain Breton, chef of the Metropole Palace in Monaco. He then went to the Café Chic in Dubai (Méridien) to assist the Michelin-starred chef Michel Rostang. The Meridien hotel chain then entrusted him with the orders of his two new gastronomic addresses: the M’s Beef Bistrot steak house and the Spanish restaurant La Bodega.
Back in France he overtakes the Orénoc, the “world cuisine” table of the Méridien Étoile Paris. He then returns to the Meridian Dubai where he is appointed Executive Chef of a huge “liner” of 17 restaurants and 250 cooks. In 2016, after ten years of loyal service, he left the chain for the Roda Hotel Group, one of the most dynamic hotel groups in the Emirate. At the beginning of 2018, Pierrick Cizeron returned to France to take the reins of the two Barrière Resort restaurants in Cannes: the Majestic Barrière and La Terrasse du Gray.
Creations with flavors from elsewhere
A native of Normandy, Nicolas Maugard grew up in Caen. At the age of 15 he joined the hotel school of Rouen, where he stayed for 3 years and graduated with a bakery CAP. For a few years, the young pastry chef perfects his taste for pastry in establishments of excellence (Hotel Gray d’Albion, Hotel Martinez, Palm Square in Cannes). Always demanding the best of himself and seeking perfection, he decides to enrich his experience in prestigious establishments around the world. He will use these trips to develop new exotic flavors, in creations that adapt to all the customers’ requests, according to their culture, their desires and their needs. He will spend around twenty years traveling the world: Paris (Four Seasons – Hotel Georges V), Monaco (Hotel Hermitage), Provence (Terre Blanche Hotel Spa Golf Resort), Mauritius and Shanghai (Four Season), Singapore (corporate for 24 Millennium Copthorne hotels), Abu Dhabi (UAE Palace). But his love of France and its beautiful products is stronger than the call of the sea and Nicolas decides to put his suitcases on the French Riviera.
Today, the pastry chef offers his know-how and his pastry passion at the service of the two restaurants of the Barrière Resort Cannes: the Majestic Barrière and La Terrasse du Gray.
