Very creative food and the presentation is beautiful. Service is really good and please try everything on the dessert menu! We ate here 3 times during our 4-day stay!

We recently had a couple of dinners at this restaurant and really enjoyed the experience. We had no previous experience of Japanese cooking so had no idea what to expect. The starters are worth taking some time over, especially try the plate of triple dishes.The choice of dishes for each course is small which is a good sign and the... More

I have been searching for an authentic Japanese restaurant in this region, but have previously found only bland no-personality sushi bars or over-priced and over-rated 'fusion' restaurants.. Until, we dined at Ma Yucca! It is a small unpretentious restaurant (maybe 10 tables seating 2 diners each), decorated in a subtle Japanese way with homewares from their shop across the road,...

A small, friendly, family-owned restaurant. Very small and rather unprepossessing from outside, step inside and the welcome is warm and the menu varied and delicious. We each started with a (different) soup. Each was very good but also very substantial. A two course dinner for four including a couple of beers and a bottle of wine came to 90eu which... More

We really enjoyed our meal here very much. Most of the dishes here are on the small side (typical Japanese style), so if you like big, filling meals, this is probably not the place for you. If you like Japanese-French fusion, this is a good place to come. Overall, the quality is high and it justifies the price. Expect a... More

This cozy restaurant has a very attentive staff providing good food and wine. This was our farewell dinner to Nice and we were not disappointed. The Ginger based cocktails were refreshing and different. The menu offered unique and delicious choices.

We ate here our last night in France and it was definitely a treat! We had been looking for a restaurant that was not the typical French cuisine but had a difficult time even finding a sushi restaurant while in Paris and Nice and this was exactly what we were looking for. The quality of food was exquisite and the... More

We had a great experience here at this superb fusion restaurant - The atmosphere was really relaxed and the food is so different to anything I've had before. We were the the only foreign customers in the restaurant which is always a good sign. My girlfriend said the spring rolls were the best she had ever had. I had the... More

We had dinner at this tiny restaurant on our last day and it was smashing. The Bream carpaccio was one of the best starters I've had the last few years and the crème bruter was excellent, sporting a lovely fruit salad on the side. My only possible gripe was a slightly too well done duck breast but I am reaching... More

When we're in Nice we will never miss our chance to have lunch at Ma Yucca on a more or less regular basis. As we have been there now so many times, we only can confirm that the quality of the food and the service is always consistently high. You'll find a typical Japanese cuisine with some French influences. And... More
