We had a great stroll along the beach today and there were people enjoying the water as well. Great place to be outdoors in Nice. If we had more time we would have bought swimwear and towels and jumped in too!

We visited for lunch, which was excellent and liked the service so much, we decided to stay the afternoon on loungers by the sea. Towels available.

We recently visited Castel Plage and had a wonderful day. We got there early and were lucky enough to take the last couple chars as we didn't have reservations. While just 2 chairs and 2 towels cost about 50euros, it was well worth it. If you've never been to Nice, the beach is completely rocks, no sand so staying at... More

You don't come here for the food: you come here because there are gay guys everywhere, a great view, not so many children and a sweet and friendly staff. Expensive beverages and food. Our salmon was way undercooked with raw parts and we couldn't eat it. But several members of the staff apologized and removed the dish from our bill.... More

My husband and I came here for dinner. The location is ideal for watching the sunset, the service was good, and the vibe was fun. Fun music playing over the speakers. The food was good, but not great. The best part of the restaurant is the location.

Service with a smile (thank-you Pierre) and a lovely meal (linguini with lobster and clams for me) beautifully presented with a view over the whole bay of Nice.

If you're trying to decide which beach club to stay at all day, definitely choose Castel! We lounged at Castel all day, 4 out of the 5 days we were there. Their beach chairs aren't made of plastic so they're sturdy, the service is really great (ask for Manu -- he is super attentive, doesn't speak much English but still... More

Don't think about the money, come here and hire a sun bed, it'll be a treat to yourself! For €15 you can have a sunbed and parasol for the day. The restaurant is conveniently located behind along with showers and bathrooms for patrons. There are also waiters that can take drink orders for you so you can enjoy drinks on... More

For 3 years we have been coming here every weekend, every summer (June to August), and we love the vibe, the location and the food (for a beach restaurant it is very good). However, when we sat down to order food, we realised the prices have gone up. That's not a huge issue, but the daily special, Caesar Salade with... More

We hired sun beds here and found it really good with great service. We ate in their restaurant and on the beach front. The food was good but not cheap. The facilities are great with showers, clean toilets and carpets over the pebbles. We had a tab running all day for everything. We used this part of the beach as... More
