According to the reviews this restaurant gets very busy and we were extremely lucky to get a table the night we ate here as we arrived without a booking. The waiter was very helpful and the dishes were explained to us. We both had 3 course set menu - for the astonishing price of 17 euros! I enjoyed a tasty... More

I've just read the (very few) one star reviews on this site for this bistro. Most of them are simply complaining that they were 20 minutes late and lost their table. You are told, at the time of booking, about this arrangement AND THEY MEAN IT. Anyway, it's rude to be late, so I say "serves them right". Then there... More

Small little 24 seater restaurant full of charm with fantastic food, warm and friendly service. Menu was on the plats du jour board which I'm sure changes often. Everything we had was wonderful. Four to five each of appetizer, main course and dessert. Taste and presentation beats some Michelin star restaurants. I especially loved the burrata with tomatoes and perhaps... More

This was one of the most delicious spots we came across in the south of France. The value and food quality gets top marks! It's frequented by local regulars - that really says something! Warm, friendly service. There is no menu, just a prix fixe menu with 4 options for each course. I recommend my selection of the avacado/shrimp appetizer,... More

We had lunch there as we couldn't book a table for dinner despite trying a week earlier. The owner didn't seem to be helpful over the phone or when we arrived early at the restaurant. Having said that the food, which is what we went for was excellent. Very sensibly priced considering it is Nice & where it's located. Fresh,... More

Small restaurtant, seated alongside fellow diners, tremendous atmosphere with local client base. Not too much choice from a limited menu written on the wall mirror, but all dishes seemed well received by customers during our visit. Very enjoyable meal, great service and only 17 euro, best value we have had in Nice. However reserve well in advance.

We loved this small intimate bistro restaurant. The food of the day was fresh and so creative. Amazing that the are just two men cooking and serving. The retro atmosphere is most unique. I truly enjoyed the whole experience. But one has to reserve well in advance for this tiny gem of a place.

Was treated to dinner here by a friend while staying in Nice. What can I say? Great menu that changes every day in order to use fresh, seasonal ingredients, cozy atmosphere, and such a deal price- wise. If you are in Nice, don't miss this! Try to make a reservation if you can.

17 Euros for a 3 course lunch. Enuf said. Jk. I didn't understand that I was supposed to choose one starter, main and a dessert. So I ordered 3 starters for myself and my hubby. The waiter looked a little startled but maintained his composure and placed my order. The lentils with mussels was amazing. I am not a fan... More
