Great for Seafood

If you are looking for seafood in the centre of Nice then this is a good place to go. You can sit inside or, as we did, outside and watch the world go by.

Every time we go to Nice, we have lunch in this restaurant for their fresh seafood and nice Mediterranean cuisine. You won't find Nice delicacies but good quality dishes. I would recommend to eat on the second floor to avoid the heat during summer and to let kids enjoy the Pirates-themed decoration.

Just visited this place by the recommendation from the hotel concierge, but turned out th he a good choice. The paella I and my wife had was great and the atmosphere was also excellent, benefitted by its location in the middle of touristic site. Only thing I slightly didn't satisfied with was the minimum order quantity. Since the minimum order... More

My lady and I got a seafood paella. The shrimp and scallops were either frozen or over-cooked. However the chorizo was excellent. The best I've had outside of Mexico. I wish the seafood was a delicious as the sausage! Overall, the foods taste was ok. But at 33 euro per person, I would have expected the SEAFOOD in a seafood... More

Made a beeline for this restaurant after reading TP reviews. If you want to plant a flag that you had seafood in Nice, Boccacio is a good brag. But do you really need to have expensive seafood in the most touristy part of Nice? The seafood platter sounds impressive. But at 70 euro, you can have better elsewhere. There were... More

Had dinner here twice. The seafood here is superb, the best we had in Nice. The ambience is very good, particularly if you can score an outside table. Prices are a bit on the high side, but worth every penny. A word to the wise... Many of the portions are huge. The size of the creme brûlée was at least... More

The food was great. Really good oysters and good variety. Good lobster salad. Great mains with black truffle mushroom. The service was an absolute nightmare. We sat at our table and had three separate moments of 20 minutes plus with no acknowledgement of the wait staff. I think the management here is poor and needs a quick overhaul. This all... More

If you want seafood in Nice this is the place to go. Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we were happy with the recommendation. Our food was delicious, the service was okay. I'm glad we were seated inside. It looks like a ship...cool looking not tacky. I would have liked to go another evening to have the paella. I saw... More
