This restaurant exceeded our expectations and made me and family very satisfied. Seafood is amazing. Decoration is also good. If I would be living in Nice I would definitely go there once in a month to light up my senses. I strongly reccomend. Order seafood pasta. Your eyes and stomach will be very satisfied. Guaranteed.

A tasteful and very professional restaurant. Both the service and two meals I had were excellent. Both were seafood and beautifully presented. Expensive but probably not for Nice.

Really enjoyed this restaurant - we had a late lunch of Paella - way more food than needed for two people but really tasty. Service was pretty good - good for France haha...North American servers are just more attentive, but the service was pretty good here. Enjoyed it - would recommend it.

I have to confess to some disappointment here. The fish was well prepared and fresh, but there was no flair in the way it was flavoured. The vegetables evinced a great deal of effort, but they were close to inedible. There were too many and the chef evidently cannot make the best of them. As we were rather full after... More

In the heart of Nice on the "walking street"..... very busy place with multiple levels and many people lined up for tables. Best to reserve and well worth the wait. Excellent dishes and great service.

Located in the center of Nice (rue massena). Good oysters and good Seafood :-) Service was slow and the waiter didn't smile, also boring to sit upstairs . Try to get a table outside so you can se the street life

Amazing selection of shellfish that come in platters. The paella also looked amazing. If you are looking for family style portions of these items then this is your place. I somewhat have mixed feelings about this place because it has a touristy vibe and isn't cheap. It was well worth the price in my opinion because the selection of shell... More

Turns out our server (Enzio) was the son of the owner! Both Enzio and his dad were equally hospitable, conversational (and we speak English and no French) and very personable to us! We liked this place so much we returned for a second visit. It was recommended by the concierge at our hotel. Great recommendation. We had a wonderful fresh... More

Descent seafood by French standards with large portions. Being on the very busy pedestrian promenade probably helps to keep this overly hyped eatery busy. A small outer enclosed patio is your best bet. The inside stairs lead to a large, windowless, enclosed space that begs for air. The seafood is fresh and well prepared. The raw/cold seafood towers on ice... More
