This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel. On arrival we could see that it was very busy but they had a table so we went in. The interior decor was impressive, as it is done out like a ship. However the staff were unfriendly and obviously rushed off their feet. During the long waits in between courses we... More

We were reccomended this place by many people, but I dont think they have been there. The food is OK, but what could really go wrong with raw oysters as long as they are fresh? The prepared food was tasteless. Poor service, we got glasses for water but no water and we sat for 20 minutes after we were finished... More

very nice restaurant, decoration and location. even if it is the heart of the touristic Nice, you have very good quality, that you pay of corse more than the average in the city. plates are huge and seafood has a taste, that's rare in the city.

I found this restaurant a little pretentious with rather brusque waiting staff. However the food was excellent although the portion sizes of the Paella were enormous. I would have preferred to serve myself initially rather than an enormous amount being placed on my plate. We ordered 3 Paella's for 8 people and there was a huge amount left. The cost... More

The sea food was outstanding. However the service was typical for French arrogance. I recommend that you go and enjoy the experience despite the rude attitude of the waiters and maître d'. I guess we are just accustom to Southern hospitality.

Huge portions, good seafood, good service. Informal atmosphere in the midst of "restaurant row". We observed another couple have a huge, special crustacean platter which looked wonderful and they assured us it was.

My family and I were in Nice in mid-January 2015. We were all very pleased to have dinner at this restaurant after a day of sightseeing in the area. It has a lovely atmosphere and I'm glad that a smart phone enabled us to find the location. If we travel to the area in the future, we'll make a return... More
