We visited on 15th May 3 course set menu and bottle of house wine 90 euro. Food and wine were of poor standard, staff were clueless and chaotic, worst meal we've had in a long time.

We ate at Chez Freddy on the last night of our trip to France. The food and service were terrible. The restaurant is located on an appealing square in Nice and was surprisingly packed w people. We started with the Niçoise salad and it was fresh and pretty tasty. The French Onion soup was very overpriced and barely edible....the onions... More

Food is okay, but over-priced. Service is awful. Our waiter was rude, unfriendly and non-communicative. Don't eat there.

Eight of us visited this restaurant on Saturday 25th April, some of us had been before but Chez Freddy was disimproved immensely. The food was mediocre to say the least and the waiting staff with the exception of the waiter with the red hair were rude and incompetent. The presentation was dreadful, the food looked like it was shovelled onto... More

really horrible tourist trap in the famous Cours Salea in Nice. The owner is dragging you inside with a nice smile but then once you take your seat, horrible things begin. First they force you to eat a la carte instead of a 3-course menu well announced everywhere. Then you receive your first course and you understand immediately - you... More

This is by far the worst experience I had in a restaurant ever!!!! I was with my family and we all ordered a three course menu of 30 euro. The service was absolutely horrible, the worst I ever experienced in a restaurant. They threw all the cutlery on the table, wanted us to order as quickly as possible, didn't say... More

Very welcoming to our young family. Relaxed easy going atmosphere. Good choice of menu items. Daughter loved the octopus. Abundance of fresh seafood. Definitely a highlight of our stay in Nice.

You always have that one restaurant visit during your vacation that just wasn't that great! Well - this was it! The restaurant is clearly always stuffed with people which makes you think that this must be good! Well, if you don't expect to much of your food I guess many could live with it! The servants really tried but we're... More
