Looking for fish restaurant in Nice, this was one of the recoomendations we got. It is close by the hotel and we were glad to select this place. We went back twice. Once for sole and the second time for paella. The food was good and the service adequate. It is a great location to sit outside and watch the... More

This place specializes in oysters and seafood. We didn't have any oysters but we devoured the rest of the seafood. My husband had fish and I had a seafood platter of battered seafood. Both were absolutely delicious. It was busy outside so we sat upstairs, nicely airconditioned. Lots of locals seem to eat here so we thought that would be... More

I'm really torn on this review, I really did love the food, I had the seafood spaghetti and it was delicious, my boyfriend had the steak and loved it, and we had some wine to go with it. Being a Saturday night we did have to wait a bit for a table which I didn't mind, plus they served us... More

Came just for the oysters based on some reviews we read and we were not disappointed. Order the smallest ones - even those are really big. Very fresh and delicious. A bit pricey, around 30 euro for 6 oysters. The profiteroles dessert was a monstrosity of ice cream and chocolate sauce, better suited for an american restaurant and not a... More

My father and I are seafood enthusiasts - oyster, clam, mussels, crab, lobster, shrimp, snail, fish - we love them all and more! So after asking our hotel concierge where we could get some good seafood, this was his only recommendation, and understandably so. Our meal was simply top notch, most certainly the best seafood I've ever had and up... More

We found this place by accident yesterday and we wanted a fairly light meal. My partner had 6 oysters and I had sautéed mussels. Really huge bowl arrived along with some fresh baguette. My partner loved the large oysters that arrived beautifully displayed on ice with sea side trimmings. . A glass of rose each and a cup of coffee... More

We visited Boccacio with friends on the recommendation of our hotel, and unfortunately we were unable to get a seat outside so sat upstairs which was air conditioned and comfortable. The interior design reminded me of a wooden sailing ship and was unusual but nice! We enjoyed our meals lobster with spaghetti, and whole sea bass cooked in a salt... More

Maybe it is the current exchange rate between US $ and Euro but 36 euros for a sole meunière - that is almost $50 - or 140 Euros for a shellfish sampler that would be almost $180 for 2 people ...... I felt that these prices were an insult! A top restaurant with impeccable service may be able to get... More
