My husband and I booked Jan for our anniversary meal purely based on the excellent Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious and the service was attentive but not over-bearing, which is often the case in fine dining restaurants. I had the fois gras to start and the beef cheeks for main which melted in... More

We recently visited this restaurant and can't praise it highly enough. We had a wonderful meal which compared favourably to some of the best restaurants we have eaten at in London. We highly recommend you give it a try, we will be back there for sure

The chef is from South Africa, and it shows in his choices, which are creative and very tasty. Our group of 6 had a mixture of menus. My grandmother's menu was terrific, but we were surprised that our waiters couldn't remember who had what, and kept asking us each time they served a course. This seemed not to be a... More

The sign of a truly distinguished chef is someone who teaches us and/or entertains us either in a new way or in a sublimely traditional way. Like the challenges facing a fine musician, there are only so many notes, so many ingredients, but when everything is in synch the results are magical. One doesn't need complexity or obscurity for its... More

We are seasoned travellers and foodies and research the places we eat carefully, so we knew that Jan would be good! We were however absolutely blown away by what we found - the decor is very contemporary and stylish and the staff were very welcoming - we had a giggle on the way in when my Mrs couldn't open the...

My chum and I dined here on a Thursday night having just arrived in Nice at the start of our holidays. We would have preferred Friday evening but they were already fully booked. We were glad we went ahead on the Thurs evening as the food and the service were very special without being stuffy or too serious. The food... More

As South Africans traveling in France we could not resist visiting Jan's eatery. The place is small but elegant, service is brilliant and the food he served absolutely top quality! We decided to have his South African menu and it was as if you walked into a South African kitchen in the heart of Nice! He has a lovely wine... More
