Fresh food, great staff

We ate here tonight with locals & were all very happy with our meals. Right beside a fish & fresh food market, the quality of ingredients is superb. We got a mixed starter between the 3 of us, which was ample. The waiter recommended a light white wine to accompany the overall meal & it was perfect... read more

After several hours wandering around in Monte Carlo, we hopped off the train in Nice, one stop before our hotel by the airport. Wandered several blocks from the station, passing bland looking little cafes and fast food joints, then spotted Brasserie le Gambetta. Wow! What a wonderful meal we enjoyed -- our last dinner of our vacation in France. We... More

Went to visit with a friend on the first night of our stay in nice as lots of other places we wanted to visit closed as it was a Monday night. The server we had was lovely and spoke good English to us but the moules were only average and the chips very odd. The wine we had was the... More

Le Gambetta was our local restaurant when we had an apartment in Nice and we always enjoyed their excellent oysters and seafood. This was a return visit after a three year absence and we weren't disappointed. We ordered our old favorites of a dozen Bouzigue oysters followed by the seafood Poellee and Pasta Leon. The service is friendly and efficient... More

This is the place in Nice to eat seafood, they have the best and freshest seafood in town at a reasonable price according to Nice. I strongly recommend the seafood platter as a starter to share for at least two and then a first course such as the bar fillet or prawns and mushrooms. Good selection of local wines (I... More

Menu has a good variety of both fish, shellfish and meat. Friendly efficient service, good value. Centrally located on the main north south tramroute just north of the main station and not far from the Digne line terminus. Only suggestion is to say exactly how you like your food cooked. They do as you ask, but if you don't, food... More

Good seafood, fair prices and nice & gentle service-team. Less tourists but more neighborhood-guests....an indicator which fulfilled the expectations...

We went there in the evening and dropped in because it was the only open restaurant in the area...the decoration is really in old style which was nice... The service was very attentive and nice. The food was nice and as we had the plat du jour the price was quite low for Nice.

This place is mostly frequented by local French and that says it all. They have great seafood and fish, but also the meat options are great here. The atmosphere inside is typical french bistrot style, with typical furniture and benches and it is conveniently located at the Liberation tram stop. There is a dining hall on the first floor too...
