Best vegetarian restaurant I've visited - my dad (who's an avid meat eater adored the food!) We enjoyed it so much we visited a total of 4 times in one week! Although there was no menu all the food we were brought we loved. Went back in July 2013 but unfortunately it had closed - please re-open!

I am really not surprised this place has shut! Thank goodness for that. How anyone could claim it was the best veggie food in the world is beyond me, they must eat in some real dives! My friend and I wandered in quite unwittingly on our first night in Nice, it was dark and there was no menu. The first... More

I am not surprised that this restaurant has closed.. Of course, there is almost no point in reviewing it now, but I feel I have to say something. We tried it twice, two years in a row, to give it a chance... Strangely enough, every course we were served was soupy, and overly salted as well. Almost unpalatable. And they... More

Unfortunately this excellent restaurant closed before summer 2013. I desperately looked for information at the tourist office, pages jaunes and over the internet but nothing.. The property is now for sale. It is very sad because the food here was excellent, vegetables and cheese only (no meat or fish, and believe me I do adore meat and here I never... More

We have heard a lot of this restaurant, both good and bad. We knew what to expect, but we could never ever have thought that the food could be so bad. It was poor. How can anybody serve so bad food? The staff was ignorant and busy, no conversation with the guests or nothing. One waitress was so drunk that... More

We went here on the last day of our honeymoon. The waitress who greeted us was very aloof and distant. She failed to explain the concept of the restaurant (which was to give you whatever the chef had decided). When the starter came out we gave it a go, despite it looking like dishwater. I'm not one to push a... More

We were looking for a vegetarian restaurant in Nice and found this one. There is no menu, the patron chooses what is good & in season and then cooks it! Very individual and the sort of place that you either love or hate (we loved it)!!! Excellent food. We sat, ate, drank red wine and watched the 'theatre' around us.... More

We had a super meal here this evening with some vegetarian friends who were visiting us in Nice. We have eaten here before and enjoyed it but it was better this time. The flavours and ingredients were lovely and the food was a little lighter. We had an artichoke with polenta to start, then a sort of ricotta and asparagus... More

First night and finding my way around most of the restaurants in the port looked liked turist traps however I stumbled on to this place which looked to be full of locals. No menu outside or prices however highly rated by lots of magazines. Upon entering were not told anything but were presented with our first course, articoke with a... More
