This restaurant was super charming and it really stands out from all the super tacky and touristy places in the city. The waitress we had was so nice to us, really sweet and joking around and the food was amazing. Some of the best meat I've ever had. Only downside is cash only but it's not so bad, it's not... More

We have just arrived home from Nice, this Restaurant was one of the highlights, the food itself was amazing, extremely tasty. The daughter of the owner was very helpful in translating the menu, the restaurant is really cosy, with a relaxed atmosphere, only disappointing aspect was they didn't accept credit or even debit card, but a quick jog down the...

Don't be put off by the quirkiness of this restaurant, it is quite dark inside and full of decor, however, the staff were very hospitable and helpful when reading the menu. The food was wonderful, especially duck in honey which all of us chose. The wine was good too. This was the first meal in a few days which we... More

You should definitely visit the restaurant, once you are in Nice! It is a small (only 9 tables) family restaurant. The owner is very nice, in case you need translation from French she can help you. The only thing inconvenient - they do not accept credit cards:(

Over priced, cash only and very low standard of food. Dusty cluttered restaurant with slow bored service and grumpy washed out "chef" Avoid this place and go to any of the other 1200+ restaurants in Nice.

The food is not cooked properly and the chef is rude to his customers. Do not waste your money on this overpriced restaurant.

Having passed this restaurant a few times we were intrigued by the strange interior decor, so different from any other restaurant we've seen in Nice. It would have been clever to make a note of the name and address which would have saved our feet; but we did manage to find it again! The menu looks expensive and when we... More

Enjoyable meal on our first night. We arrived very late after a day touring Nice and after having been knocked back by a couple of other restaurants as they were full or had stopped serving. The waitress was very nice and approachable. Loved the 'antique shop' decor. Struck me as a family run restaurant and very French. Meal was very... More

We just came back from Nice in June. We stumbled onto this restaurant because it was across the street from our hotel, hotel Massena. We thought it was a wonderful restaurant with great food, cozy and cute atmosphere, and reasonably priced. So what if they don't take credit cards. We would definitely come back is we have another chance. So... More

I've been going to this restaurant for several years now and i've never been disappointed. The food is always fresh, delicious and beautifully presented. The hostess is very kind and the room is decorated in an original but homey style that cannot really be described. I stongly recomment this restaurant.
