Location is perfect, just inside the Old Down. Good choice to have dinner here. Kitchen offer french/ thai cuisines, very fusion I think. Food was okay, thai beef salad was a little tasteless. It just needed something, the beef was good! Gnocchis were good and it was huge portion. Little bottle... read more

We came by for lunch right when the restaurant was closing since it was late in the afternoon and the waitress gave us a fantastic alternative recommendation. Based on a glimpse of food on people's plates we knew we wanted to try this place. We came back the following evening and had a delicious low key dinner. We had the... More

Surprisingly great food at this restaurant. We had to wait for a table but were persuaded by one of the tables who were enjoying their food so much they told us it was worth the wait. There's a lovely old fashioned bar opposite called the Distillery. where you can enjoy an aperitif until a table becomes available. The menu is... More

Had dinner here last night and was very impressed. Lovely staff greeted me and offered to explain the menu (French and English) and give recommendations. I had the gnocchi with butter, sage and sausage and it was delicious. Huge portion and presentation was great! The cheesecake also very excellent! Would definitely come back.

One of my new favourite restaurants in Nice! We ate here twice we liked it so much. The food is delicious, especially the Daube (local speciality stew) and the ribs. The staff are very kind and accommodating for allergies. We will be coming back here next time we visit Nice!

I went with a group of friends, who all had delicious meals, but we almost didn't stay because of how rude the server was. I am vegan and asked if certain modifications were possible to a couple of different dishes, and instead of politely saying that they were not able to be modified, he made us feel terrible for asking...

Me and my girlfriend visited this place about a week back. We were initially seated at the only free table in a corner. This table was right next to an exhaust duct and as soon as a couple of neighboring tables got free, we requested the waiter (Young Thai guy) to be moved to one of those tables. Before the... More
