Remarkable experience, great cheese

As mentioned in other comments, the sitting is down in a cave, unique ambiance. The waiter new their wines. Definitely a place for cheese lovers. Overall a very pleasant dinner experience. Suggest you call ahead to make a reservation. Fills up quickly.

Fantastic food (how could you go wrong with that much cheese?) and a great waiter who recommended excellent wine at a reasonable price.

I have been to the Haute-Savoie region of France a few times in the summer and love Tartiflette, so when I saw this on the menu in Nice I just had to try it! The seating for the restaurant is actually downstairs in a cave like atmosphere - but it is lovely and well laid out. The serving staff were... More

We highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for something different and with great service. Try their fondue! It was a treat. No loud music to drown out your conversations. A great selection of wines that goes great with every type of cheese.

Fabulous cave dining with more cheese than any cheese lover could want. There is no wine list. The nice, young man who helped us said he was the wine list. :). We started with the best crocque Monsieur and split the cheese fondue. Divine. The crocque Monsieur is made with thinly sliced layers of homemade bread and when complimented was... More

This is the place to come if you like French cheese -- it's a part of everything they serve here. The soups, the appetizers, the entrees. You can just come and eat cheese if you like (and many people were). Came here on a recommendation from Rick Steves' guidebook, and, lo and behold, who should appear in the middle of... More

Dined here while in Nice on recommendation of the BestOfNiceBlog. What a great choice! To begin, the wine list is a book -- literally -- with distinctive regional selections. Many pages show the photo of the vintner and briefly describe his/her philosophy of winemaking. We started with a mushroom pate sandwiched between brie, served atop lightly dressed greens. Heavenly!
