After struggling to find a typical Nicoise restaurant to eat at to accommodate 10 we found this. They were more than accommodating and a beautiful table was made up for us on the back terrace of the restaurant. The food, service and atmosphere was excellent!! You need to book earlier in the day though!

We were looking for a place to have a dinner in the old town and walked past this restaurant. After reading the fairpriced (32 euro) menu with some really good food choices we were hooked. Both of our appetizers, mains and deserts were really delicious, specially my tiger prawn main course was one of the best ones I've had in... More

In the sea of tourists traps, intrigued by its inside decor we found this lovely restaurant. Very Good food - risotto ( a bit too cooked for italian standard) cod salad and great chocolate dessert. I would def reccomend it.

The restaurants in Nice can be hit or miss with tourist traps mixed with nice restaurants. This one is definitely one of the nicer restaurants we ate in. The food was excellent and wasn't the usual fare of mussels or pizza! The appetizers were fantastic and the main courses were very tasty and we had excellent service, all at a... More

A small, intimate place, decorated with lamps and mirrors and themed in red. Friendly service and very good food and wine at reasonable prices.

Visited for lunch today using a groupon two course voucher and thoroughly enjoyed our visit from start to finish. Sat outside at the front as we were first to arrive at midday (only time available to book using this particular voucher) and the entire restaurant soon filled up. Very polite, helpful and pleasant waitress served us throughout, allowing me to... More

Last Friday we found this lovely restaurant on the narrow streets of Nice and taught that it was just the right place to have dinner. Couldn't be wronger! We sat three and ordered for two plus a bottle of red wine. So the manager "kindly" shouted at us that the place was full(even if there were two tables free next... More
