This is a great restaurant. We booked a reservation for early in the evening and upon arriving we were greeted warmly by a friendly host. Located in an old wine cellar, the atmosphere is rustic, cozy, and unique. The menu had great options and the food was excellent. The owner helped us with the menu and more importantly with the...

This was our second visit to this very special place. Non descript, entrance but then you are led down the stairs to a series of little cave like rooms, stone walls etc. Enchanting! Walls of wine, too. The friendly and funny young owner takes orders, explains the menu, brings the wine. No formal wine list...he asks what you like, the... More

A place you would otherwise (straight from the street) never visit as it is rather invisible. Luckily we read the reviews beforehand and visited Nice in September (so were able to get a table for the same evening). The restaurant was spectacular - great food, cosy atmosphere (although in a cellar), unbelievable service - spoke perfect English and funny. Great... More

This restaurant was suggested by a local and we didn't have a reservation, but they squeezed us in. Reserve if you plan to go! The place is packed. The staff were attentive, made excellent suggestions about the menu all in great English. The food is fresh and authentic, a must-visit restaurant!

I went to the restaurant as saw reviews at trip advisor. I had no pre conceived ideas and was happy to see it was a cosy little restaurant. The service was very good. The food was nice, but i blame myself for choosing heavy dishes even though was advised by the waitress.

We dropped by based on recommendations from this site. Didn't have a reservation ( a must in hindsight) but they squeezed us in. So, the overall ambiance was rushed, not sure if I should blame them or me for that? Having said that, all of the dishes were very good. I can recommend the quality of the food. From my... More

Had dinner with friend in Bistro du Fromager. First of all I had read very bad commentaries about the owner....well we found him pretty nice and amusing! Good choice of meals (all with cheese ingredients). I suggest the roasted Camembert, really delicious! Wine selection quite good including many "organic" wines. A definite must when in Nice for cheese lovers. Unfortunately... More

From the wonderful welcome our family of four received when we arrived, to the thorough explanation of the menu to the visit from the chef, our dinner experience here was absolutely wonderful. We all love cheese and we weren't disappointed in any of our selections, given that everything on the menu features one delicious cheese or another. Everything was fresh,... More

We absolutely loved every single thing we ate at this restaurant. From the bread in the beginning to the simple strawberry dessert, everything was outstanding. Don't miss the fondue with the vegetables (don't remember the exact name) and the risotto. I only wish we had room in our bellies to try the pasta that was tossed in the big wheel... More

Situated on a small road in the old town, not the easiest to find, this restaurant was one of the most amazing culinary experiences I have ever had. It is one of those absolute gems of a restaurant I never thought I'd find outside of internationally top-rated restaurants. Noma, Osteria Francescana et al, beware; this gem of a restaurant gives...
