This was the best meal we had in France, and that includes a week in Paris last year. The breadth and quality of the menu was simply fantastic. We luckily made reservations a month BEFORE we left for Nice --- you need them. It's in Nice's old town and can be walked from most places.

My hotel called to make a reservation for me. When I arrived, the boss told me that there was no reservation for me. The restaurant was fully booked. Fifteen minutes after I was supposed to be seated, she was calling, asking where I was. Too late, I went to Olive&Artichaut

Stay away from the tourist traps on Cours Saleya and visit this little gem. Fantastic food reasonably priced in a homely setting.

A rustic style menu mainly consisting of food your grandmother would have eaten in hardened times made trendy. We experienced a frenetic atmosphere and a somewhat stressful pace of service where quick choices were demanded and an explanation of dishes a chore, the main objective seeming to be processing diners as rapidly as possible. Having said this my partner enjoyed... More

Bistro d'Antoine was packed on a Friday night. Staff were really friendly and the food was plentiful and very tasty. There were lots of rustic type dishes all really well cooked. I especially liked the tongue dish that I tried. It is definitely well worth eating there and booking in advance. There were lots of locals returning, which is always... More

Fantastic food for a very fair price. This is really a great place and is everything a French Bistro should be. I recommend that you reserve as this is a very busy restaurant.

It is worth making a real effort to eat at this restaurant (booking is essential); even the French food guides admit that there are no longer many bistros in which one can eat traditional "peasant" dishes so well prepared - at our last visit I chose the Cocotte de Cochon a l'Ancienne, which was delicious. The restaurant is crowded and... More

We visited this bistro twice during our last visit to Nice. And we're quite excited to go back this trip. It's still great! Casual, friendly, well run, good service and exceptional food. We started with a frisée salad and an artichoke stew, moved on to beef tongue in a wonderful horseradish sauce and veal kidneys. True bistro fare. No dessert... More

We visited bistro D'Antoine and we're lucky to get a table due to a cancellation. The food and service were excellent and the atmosphere was fantastic. A real buzz and mostly locals there. We loved it so much, we made a reservation for our last night in nice. It finished a lovely break very well.

Worth seeking out. Classic French bistro fare done right. The food was impeccable; the service slightly cold. In Nice that passes as exceptional.
