Fresh fish with a nice twist

Portuguese marinated octopus is a must. Cod dishes were fresh and delicious. Large prawns slightly overcooked kept it from being a five. Informal and inviting. Definitely worth a return trip. Interesting take on tiramisu.

Good but not more than that. We ordered a porto and a pastise as aperitive and 3 min's after the drinks he broight already the food. We had to chose between drinking the apero ad-fundum or leaving the food so it gets vold. You don't want this option in a restaurant. The food itself was good (but a mixed grill... More

We received the best service at this restaurant than any other place we ate at during our 2 weeks in France. Although the restaurant was packed, both servers seemed relaxed and were smiling through the evening. The food was delicious - such a nice change from all the French/Italian meals we've been having. The 3-course fixed menu is a great... More

Located in a cute side-alley in Nice's old town, this place looks romantic and promising. In fact the tables are so close together the staff have difficulty getting around and the food is really very basic and mostly served with roasted vegetables/potatoes regardless of what you have. That said, we had a perfectly edible meal here - it just didn't... More

A very good find for lunch down an alley way in Nice. The Bouillabaisse attracted us in and did not disappoint. Service was excellent and our waiter made us feel at home. Would definitely go again.

Unsure if we should try Bouillabaisse in a Portuguese restaurant we took a chance on Le Barbecue - the result was great! Not too salty, lots of seafood and great flavours. Cool little place up narrow side street well worth a visit.

We had dinner two nights at this portuguese restaurant. We liked sitting in the narrow alley and enjoyed the food.

Surprised to see how well rated this restaurant is. Beignets to start were greasy and had little flavour. The pizza to follow was ok but my wife's 'half chicken' was a drumstick and thigh served with piles of greasy vegetables. If you are hungry and want a lot of food - go. If you are looking for good food -... More
