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...

This restaurant was open when all others in the area were closed (Mon. night). Excellent quality food - try their salmon steaks - cooked to perfection!

I suppose being adjacent to the fish market has to be an advantage. Wonderful fish and seafood but carnivores are also well served with steaks, lamb cutlets etc. Authentic atmosphere with lots of wood and glass. Helpful chatty waiters. Good portions in fact the antipasti fruits de mer would be a ore than adequate main course.Definitely worth another visit
