Decent dinner on a busy evening

We went here one evening after failing to get into our first choice restaurants in the old town. Hint: always book...! Gaglio is Corsican cuisine I believe. The cheese and meat platter we shared was lovely, as was my calamari and vegetable main. My boyfriend's gnocchi and beef was ok - the beef... read more

I enjoyed food in this restaurant, especially fish soup. Magret de canard was also good. Missed deserts because I was full up. I like its food, location, interior, etc.

If you came to Nice to savor food, this is the place to visit. Wide variety of local food and all fresh and nicely presented. We had three different menues, so we could share between us. Fish soup was delicious and unusual. Too bad my doughter was very hungry, because you can't actually stuff yourself, as portions are for enjoying,... More

In this former two-storey jeweller's shop you can see odd reminders of the restaurant's previous life with several display and storage units retained as part of the decor. The general atmosphere is stylish and this is matched by the really good food, well-presented and served by friendy and knowledgeable staff. Prices are slightly higher than might be expected for the... More

Tried today Gaglio for the first time. Ambient is very nice in this recently opened restaurant which used to be a jewel shop in the past. Friendly yet professional welcome and atmosphere. Food is traditional Nicois style with a Corsican hint (ownership is from Corsica). We had four Menu Nicois which for 20€ allows you to savour an appetizer, a... More

It has become our second home. Once you tasted the pastries here, you will enjoy them only here (I love their cheesecake ;-)) As to the dishes I would advise to take the menu or the fish of the day. Nice for a late breakfast too. And the design of the place adds to its charm, once it was a... More

This place has an attractive design, the decoration is discreet yet refined, the colours are subdued, the music is pleasant yet unobrtusive. Altogether it's a good environment to enjoy a meal in. Regarding the service, the staff is friendly, attentive and efficient. The food came fast and and was quite hot when it was served. We were greeted upon arrival... More

Visited here twice. Both times we had a very tasty meal though the service was very friendly but a bit slow. We would nonetheless recommend it as a good example of a French brasserie with good food. It may be advisable to book ahead.

nice restaurant design and location. Staff nice y and friendly but very slow service. Food quality good but v small portion of fish to was actually still hungry which is disappointing. Been before with similar experience so will stick to better ones I know when next in Nice as there is plenty of choice.
