This did not appear to be a restaurant at all from the outside: it looks more like a small wholesale outlet. Don't let that fool you because the cellar where everyone eats is an intimate vaulted series of spaces. The menu is verty different; plenty of fondue type offerings and almost everything is a cheesy option. The head waiter during... More

And this is the place for both. Still the most romantic and unique setting in town....as well as the biggest surprise. The owner is bursting with energy and enthusiasm. Loves his job! Excellent service and the food, all things cheese, is superb. We shared an entree and then dove into the Comte fondue. Lovely fruity wine selected by the owner....tell... More

we had another amazing meal here during our most recent visit to Nice. The ambience is so special & the food, amazing! We enjoyed a plate of cured ham served with the most delicious hazelnut bread then shared a Comte fondue. This was all watered down with a tasty vin naturel chosen by the proprietor. Deeeelish!

I have always wanted to try this place when passing it in the evenings, simply because it was always full and had a lovely rustic ambiance. Now that desire finally became true, with a few friends of mine. The Bistro du Fromager is an excellent choice for something authentic, unique, and yet truly French. A lot (but not all) of... More

If you like cheeses this is the restaurant you should go. You can eat all kind of plates based on cheese. Very tasty. This restaurant is very busy. You should book a table in advance.

One of the finest and most interesting wine lists I have ever come across and a great host along with his team. Really enjoyed my evening here this week and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Nice. Great menu, stunning cheeses, incredible wines.

Dinner was my choice tonight and I couldn't pass up an opportunity to delve into "all things cheese" The appetizers have cheese. The entrees have cheese and OMG the desserts!!!! Out waiter had detailed knowledge regarding wine. Sancerre is our favorite and his recommendation was fabulous! My husband had the salmon trout (a cold dish mind you) and I the... More

Good concept around cheese :) the decor is really nice as the tables are set in a cellar. The menu is ok but nothing exceptional... Service is fine but waiters are really fast and pushy (they do not really let you choose your wine... It would be nice if they just gave advices and not force you...) Wine is very... More

I went here on the recommendation of a friend. You go downstairs and it was cute, different. I liked the wine and the fresh bread was great. Would have liked olive oil with it though. The pasta was fresh and cheese was good.
