Service was warm and friendly but the fish (cod) was perfectly prepared over sepia rice. We had the set menu with soup, salad and dessert. Everything was wonderful, and the price was very reasonable.

I found this restaurant on TA—and what a stroke of luck! Since we arrived on Easter Sunday I was concerned that many places in Nice would be closed, and so it was a relief to be able to book our first dinner here. Service was brisk and welcoming and everything we tried was simply terrific. To start I had a... More

On the port a real bistrot serving excellent dishes. Try the langoustines, the tasty entrecôte, the excellent pigeons, the fabulous côte de veau, and give space to the desserts. The real chef deserves something in Michelin and a star in tripadvisor.com Excellent bordeaux wines.

Tried the place by a recommendation from a Nice restaurant book. Everything looked tasty including what all of the neighboring tables were having. Dish was a little to cold for grilled fish, but otherwise the wines and courses were well above expectations. I think many people along with myself would give this restaurant a resounding thumps up.

Great husband and wife team. Impeccable service and stunning food. Salt baked sea bass accompanied by creamed potato wirh truffle shavings - did I die and go to heaven. If you don't have a special occasion to celebrate, make one up! We will be back!

This bistro is most likely a family business. It is small and lacks art or decoration, and the lighting is a little green… I imagine in high season, you can sit outside and so forego all that, and enjoy the Port with the hills in the distance. That being said, the food is amazing. It is carefully prepared and rivals... More

Small restaurant, most probably a family business, placed in the port of Nice, by a busy street. Even so, it does not lose any charm with its view to the port and Alpine mountain tops. If the weather is nice you can sit outside and enjoy fresh air. There are a couple of menu sets available, priced between €25 and... More

The location is terrific, you can sit outside in a late winter sunny day and easily pretend to be enjoying early summer, looking at the Port just moments away from your glass of rose' wine. As already pointed out in previous reviews, outside space is limited but nevertheless I'd suggest to opt for a table overlooking the sea. Menu on... More

What a little gem. We were recommended to go here by an owner of another restaurant. It was a Saturday evening and the place was busy, however they still had a table for us. The restaurant faces the marina, although it was a shame as there was a terrible downpour. This place is perfectly French. The fish soup was very... More
