After being greeted by the chef at lunch and again when I arrived for my dinner reservation, I hoped for some fantastic fish and was not disappointed. We had the fish in salt for two and it was perfect! The combination of the large fish and the salt yields an incredibly moist, flavorful dish especially when served with mashed potatoes... More

This is a well recommended restaurant. It is by the Port in Nice, which isnt as idyllic as it sound, as a busy road is between you and the boats. The food was OK, but at the prices they charge i would expect better, and better (and better value) is available nearby! - I wont return

We enjoyed a very long lunch with friends at this busy port-side restaurant & thought is was definitely a cut above lots of other local rivals. The menu has really imaginative flavour combinations; everything we ordered was beautifully presented & delicious. We had lobster salad (decent chunks of lobster meat), & crab salad with sweet roasted red peppers. John Dory... More

Stayed really close and the bistro was recommended by the owner of the apartment we stayed in. The food was beautiful and ordered from a special "mushroom menu". Each course tasty and well presented. A nice Sancerre hit the spot too. If you want to sit inside you probably need to book. We had to sit inside although some outside... More

The Bistrot du Port is a little out of the way on the quai of the Port of Nice. We got there at about 7:30PM and by 8:30 the place was packed. And there is good reason for that. Many locals find the food and prices exceptionally good as we did. The presentations were fine, but the food on its... More

We cycle past this restaurant so much we thought we must stop by and try it. We have read good reviews and we love seafood, for which this place is famed. Sunday lunch seems a good idea because there isn't much to do except swimming and shopping (at those shops that are opened). We were seated outside, under the canopy... More

Just eaten here. Very expensive and it was not good at all. We've been in nice for 10 days and had great food every night until now. The service was poor with no explanation of anything on the menu etc The mixed fish( £28 ) was a few bits plus some mash. It was cold and under cooked so we... More

Spent a glorious couple of hours enjoying freshly cooked food and wine in this well run establishment. We managed to bag a table for two just as the lunchtime service had started. Presented with the predominantly seafood menu on boards(english available) we opted for the fish soup and lobster salad to start. Both dishes were fresh, tasty and expertly presented.... More

We tried this place on a recommendation of our concierge and it did not disappoint. Everything from salad with black truffles to grilled sea bass were great. The waiter, although limited English skill, was very nice and accommodating. The view is near the quay, at the corner of the city -hence very scenic and easy to find. The place was... More
