Gustave 5 only gets 3 out of 5 stars

Average is the best way to describe Le Gustave 5. It was not horrible and it was not fantastic. Although, the location directly on the Promenade does offer great people watching and views. I was a bit disenchanted from the start, when the shrimp cocktail came out as more of a shrimp salad in a... read more

Yes, the staff was nice. Get a table at the sidewalk and the experience is nice! I recommend the Caesar salad and the Salad Chèvre chaud, they are excellent!!

Service was garbage, food was decent but that doesn't matter. The manager was a dirty bird that couldn't solve a problem worth a damn. Horrible restaurant.

I e-mailed this restaurant to reserve a table for New Years Eve and was sent a return e-mail with a photo asking me which table I would like - in France some restaurants seem to like to sit everyone as close together as possible - but not this one. We had a lovely relaxing meal with friendly attentive staff, especially... More

Were looking for some thing on the sea front, especially as we missed the main lunch time slot. The staff were helpful, if slightly formal. Main course was good (yet no exceptional). Overall good quality for the price. The deserts were very good and left us feeling satisfied and pleased with our choice.

Visited Nice in September staying on the beach. This restaurant is well located on Promenade Anglais overlooking the beach. Unfortunately, that is where the positives end. It only takes one obnoxious waiter to ruin a dining experience and this restaurant has plenty of them. One tall, middle aged arrogant Bozo, who ignored us on entry, then proceeded to actually walk...

Had a 4 night break in Nice and ate here twice. On both occasions the food was excellent, the house wine very drinkable and the service friendly and relaxed. The pizzas are to be highly recommended as is the Ravioli dish, the salads were bright tasty and very fresh and you must try the Chard Pie for sweet. Not something... More

I am surprised at the low rating this restaurant has. We had a delicious meal there. We had a dinner voucher from our travel agent so had to order from a limited menu but the food - bread, soup, shrimp and avocado appetizer, salmon, risotto, vegetables, chicken and pasta and pie were all wonderful.

Light dinner with old relative. The food was not memorable but OK. I will choose a different place for dinner next time.
