Nice restaurant with good products ; the restaurant is not very big so it's better to have a reservation. Service is good, tables are a bit close from each others but it's part of the ambiance, not a problem even for couples. Hint: main room is better as the other one has direct view on the kitchen (& on the... More

This kind of dishes can be found only here! They have the French taste but finally Japanese. And their looks give us a nice surprise. The different style of beauty on Our plates from Japanese classical dishes I had when I was living in Japan. Really a nice surprise ! The Desserts are so pretty as well. Even if you... More

They have a three course menu for 30 euros which was very tasty. The service was excellent and the sake very nice. Booking recommend.

This is our favourite restaurant in Nice and we always look forward to dining here when we're in the area. This time around our dinner was even more memorable with an outstanding beef and fried foie gras sushi that was so delicious we ordered another plate of it! The waiter is always lovely and efficient. We hope to dine here... More

If you like to eat tasty well prepared food, this is the place for you! Taken that you like Japanese that is, Ma Yucca is a true gem in Nice. The food is quite simple but very tasty, prepared with the greatest attention to taste and structure!

We had lunch and dinner here during a recent holiday. We loved it! The food was fresh, delicious and beautifully presented. The special of the day - a sushi dish with a difference- was a favorite but there was nothing we didn't enjoy.

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
