Very nice place

One of my favorite places on french riviera. Inside is very cozy and warm, love the decor. Staff is very professional and nice. Food is excellent, but you pay the price for it. Love the artichoke salad, truffle pizza and buratta cheese. Careful if you ask for anything on the side, my friend asked... read more

The lamb and chicken curry was good, not great. The salad niçoise original and very good. The carpaccio with truffles also quite good. But the taste were far from what you'd expect for the price. Nice view over the port and snooty waiting staff.

Very nice food. Service was very slow. I had to wait for 20 minutes for a waiter to clear my main course. Not really what I expect when your paying these prices.

I live down here and eat out a lot.....this was one of the best all-round eating experiences I've had. A bit pricey, but worth it for the perfectly cooked bourride. I am a professional chef de cuisine and cannot recommend this place highly enough.

Ate here on St. Valentine day with a friend. Took the menu deal and were very disapointed. The fish was almost uneatable and the apple ball for desert was a discrace. The price was expensive (about 160 euro) for food which I beleive would not have a chance of entering any amature chef competition. Will never go here again.

I'm not crazy about the food here ( a bit overpriced and lackluster), but fun for a drink at dusk or late at night. Located right in the marina.

I love the seafood, pizza with black truffles, the selections of fresh fish, crusteceans, and their classic burger are tops. In summer you can seat by the terrace in the street. And very cozy in winter time. Friendly staff.

I have eaten here the best chateaubriand ever, but mainly the food is good but not cheap, my big dislike you cannot find an averagely priced wine, always 50 euro plus unless on occasion they sell the undrinkable Nouveau Beaujolais at more than 26 euro a bottle, you will also have to put up with the pompous attitude of the...

Since we were not in the mood for dinner only dessert we got seated in the back like a child who was not behaving.... We had some good dessert and a few drinks (for some reason everywhere we went only 2 or 3 items were available from the dessert menu). Waiter was also interesting but nothing out of line since...

This places gives happiness, the food is generally very good - this time the fish was excellent. The wine list is short - but is has the wines I like. Prices are good compared to other restaurants.Always a good choice.
