Went for lunch and was given a table inside as the tables outside were full. Small menu on a blackboard and I was originally prepared to be disappointed. However when the food arrived (I incidentally ordered the squid salad), it was fantastic. There were 3 of us on our table and each dish was much better than expected. I would... More

The weather in Nice has been unbearable. The heat wave seems not to dissipate fast enough for our return visit to this old faithful in the Port. We waited a while to come back because unfortunately the sun beats onto its canvas canopy quite hard and for most of the day. Don't get me wrong. We love the sun (that's... More

Being a local I have to admit that this is the best fish I had in my hometown so far. I went for a Denti (corsican fish) and tasted each dish of the six other persons around the table, and everything was delicious. A little bit expensive but you pay for quality, good portion, the view and a good service.

We arrived at 7:15 assuming they would be open. The staff just sat and stared at us when asked if they were ouvert (open). Eventually we were given a table but treated very oddly. I think this is a local restaurant and maybe they are not hugely keen on tourists. At least that was the vibe they gave off. The... More

This was recommended by our hotel and whilst booked out the first night we wanted we got the second night. Absolutely well worth the visit. Very local. Predominantly fish but had chicken and meet too. Lobster salad was brilliant. The monkfish was probably the best I have ever eaten and the cod was superb. Fantastic food all round. Wine list...

Since there is no just "good" rating, I had to go with "average". 3 of us went for dinner and sat outside overlooking the Port. Good location. We had the Iberian Pig special with mustard sauce, which was very good. The Rack of Veal was just ok, and our friend had the Grilled seafood. She thought it was good, but... More

Tried to visit given the ratings at 25 mins to closing and they refused saying food was closer. I then asked if I could just have a glass of wine or something was maybe already ready and the waiter again refused. The restaurant was still around 75% full. I doubt everyone would have left by then. Went next door to... More

We have eaten at the Le Bistrot several times mostly lunch. As a general rule the plat du jour at lunch is a bargain as they give you two courses, 1/4 bottle of wine, and coffee all for under 20 euros. Once again as a general rule the food at lunch is imaginative and tasty. However on those occasions when... More

I was taken here by a friend who raved about it. The value at lunchtime was certainly good in that the plat du jour included a generous amount of wine. The food is imaginative such as a starter with quinoa and a main with fish & butternut squash (I think!). So for a real foodie it is probably average, for... More
