Fantastic

Visited here and had an absolutely fantastic meal, they take highlife cards which is an absolute bonus. My husband had the shrimps and a tuna steak - and he said they were the best he'd ever had. I had a salad and it was beautiful - there is a lovely choice of wines too - a must visit.

First impression is of a poorly decorated space. Dirty Windows, curtains tied in knots and painted stripes on wall surfaces which does nothing to enhance the grim atmosphere. The menu was interesting but the aubergine and lentil Moussaka seemed to be devoid of both these ingredients and was unrecognizable as a moussaka, served as a loose stew in a basin... More

Visited on a Friday evening the food was great, I'd highly recommend the antipasti platter. The polite staff made from a pleasant evening! All in all a great restaurant!

My wife and I have just had another excellent meal at NICE. I always have the lamb because it is so tasty and last night was no exception. A large piece of succulent lamb with a mixed berry and mint sauce. I find it hard to believe the previous reviewers. I've never had a bad meal and I've been there... More

nice décor, staff were pleasant enough, service a bit slow even though there were only 4 other people in there. Don't have the pizza, mine was burnt on the bottom and had to ask for a steak knife so I could hack my way into it. Way too much cheese on the top, my poor olives were swimming in cheese... More

We had dinner in the restaurant on a Thursday night. We both had the lamb from the specials menu, and unfortunately it really wasn't very good at all. There was not nearly enough veg (one slice of courgette and two cherry tomatoes) and it was tasteless, no sauce and very dry. The restaurant itself is very echoey and not cosy... More

I cannot praise this restaurant highly enough.In terms of the quality of the food, value for money and customer service (a tricky thing to get right with a business dinner for 15), Nice deserves full marks.Everything was handled perfectly (including a tricky situation caused by my last-minute addition of diners to our table).

Our first time to Nice, and will definitely be coming back! I had the sea bass which was delicate and very tasty, and plenty of lovely vegetables too. The lamb was just as good apparently. Desserts were simple but classic - the berry compote with the pannacotta was the right side of tangy. The wine was very good also (we... More

What a find! The nicest night we've had for ages. The staff are so welcoming and the food is superb. We had a great deal including a gorgeous bottle of wine (which we couldn't believe was included in the price of the deal) and a sharing platter. We'll definitely return. It's easy to overlook as there's no shop front, but... More
