This restaurant does not have an attractive, nor a welcoming environment. Furthermore, one gets the distinct impression that nothing here is as it should be. As an example, the supposed fresh whole crab has no taste, and no soup in its shell. One is led to think that the various parts of the crab come from various frozen packets, displayed... More

We popped in on our way to Nice Airport, and our only disappointment was that we wish that we had more time to savour this wonderful place. We were welcomed by friendly staff, and had the menu of the day (17 Euro for 2 courses). Everything was beautifully cooked and presented, and tasted delicious. But the menu of the day... More

A pleasent surprise was this ambitious restaurant. However, as other visitors comment here, having made a quick calculation on the weight and price of the fresh fish offered we realized we should tur to the menu. Good food, ambitious, but the menu should also include a couple of less costly alternatives.

We didn't have a la carte, just the lunchtime menu. Fried calamari for entre, just plain ordinary for either choices of a piece of fish or duck fillets (a bit too pink and rare) for the main course. Out of the 3 courses, the desert of panna cotta is the best out of this menu. The price is reasonable at... More

Well what can we say, if you like quality over price you are at the right location. We took the Royal plate and enjoyed the food all the way. It was a real pleasure and all elements were perfect, no small portion either. We almost forgot the entree with the chefs starter which in fact was already worth the visit... More

When the two of us arrived there were only four other people in the Resaurant, probably due to it being a French bank holiday evening and was quite everywhere. The food was good and tasty and the service polite and helpful, but the price?? We both chose fish from the refrigerated display, which was also shown again at our table.... More

I love high quality "spéciales" oysters. If you do too, this is the place to go. Good service, good wine by the glass, and nice surroundings. I haven't tried anything else there, but something tells me I will soon...

The ambiance is nice and interestingly designed, with an open area on a multilevel. Actually it's a nice solution because even with a full restaurant the noise is low. The Restaurant is specialized for "coquillages", but has a full menu with all types of dishes mostly inspired by the fresh catches. The service is carefull and quick. For the dessert... More

We were staying at a local hotel and came across this restaurant by chance. We booked for an evening meal & felt welcome immediately on arrival. Excellent staff who explained the menu & guided us to an amazing meal. Would always make a detour to have a meal here. Try it.
