We would not recommend it. The chef tries to hard resulting in too bizar combinations. Only one menu is offered which includes truffle in every course so no option if you have someone at the table who does not like it. Courses follow very quickly. Wine can only be taken by glas or bottle, no pichets. One gets the feeling... More

This was a truly incredible evening. It is an intimate, beautifully decorated and expertly run restaurant. We had the Pre-Fix menu and each course was outstanding. You have the feeling that everything has been completely thought through and planned by someone who knows what a great dining experience should be. The food was elegant and served by a terrific staff.... More

This is a smallish restaurant in a not-particularly-fashionable part of the city, but it delivers well above its weight.A smallish but balanced menu turns out to be brilliantly created and beautifully served - first-class ingredients, all freshly prepared, stunningly presented, made for one of our best dinners ever in Nice. Well-chosen winelist; clientele a smattering of visitors but, tellingly, the... More

I came here for dinner with my father while on holiday in Nice. We came because of the reviews on Trip Advisor, and were not disappointed. The restaurant is small and friendly, and we had great service, helping us out with anything we weren't sure of. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. I would definitely return, fantastic food and... More

Read the rave reviews on here and decided to check it out with my wife. Food was okay at best, especially considering the high price tag. The fish (24€) was rubbery and my beef (38€) was chewy. Service, however, was friendly and attentive. All things considered I recommend going elsewhere for more bang for the buck.

Dear Customer, There is a problem in your comment because the prices you announce does not correspond to our prices. Indeed, our fish is 23 euros and our meat with foie gras 30 euros. (which are reasonable prices for fresh products in Nice). Maybe you wrote the wrong restaurant ??? I send you an email but you didn't answer... Don't... More

La Roustide is a wonderful example of modern French cuisine, which makes use of the very best local and seasonal ingredients, captures the richness of traditional French sauces and reductions while not overwhelming the more discerning contemporary palette with decadence. Price: The total bill was reasonable: 145 Euro for a tasting menu for me and a la carte starter and... More

A memorable and romantic evening was spent with my partner at La Roustide. The specialty is truffles, and in June the summer truffle and its more subtle flavors dominated the evening. We opted for the tasting menu, and the extremely friendly hosts were more than happy to suggest wine pairings for several of the courses. We got a sense that... More

After enjoying 3 days of great food in Athens, followed by 10 days of awesome dining aboard a Seabourn cruise and a great meal at another restaurant in Nice, we ended our European vacation with a meal at La Rustide.
